Melania Trump Lookalike Says She’s Target of ‘Assassin’ After T.I. Video [WATCH]

*Model Melanie Marden previously said it was a “brave” decision to film a nude scene depicting First Lady Melania Trump stripping in the Oval Office for rapper T.I.’s controversial music video.

The visual features Marden taking off an “I Don’t Really Care. Do U?” jacket, made famous by Trump’s wife during her visit to immigrant children being housed in government-sponsored cages. 

“It was an opportunity for me to step right outside my comfort zone and play the first lady — yes, naked, which I’ve never done before… I was brave,” Marden told Inside Edition.

But now she’s singing a different tune.

Marden spoke at length Monday on “Page Six TV” about death threats she has received since appearing as Melania in T.I.‘s racy video.

Hear her own words about the troubling matter via clip above.

“I got a text message on my cellphone, which is unlisted and [is] not handed out very easily, and it basically said, ‘Follow my instructions or you’ll be assassinated within the next 24 hours,’” Marden said of a message sent from someone claiming to be an assassin.

After going to the authorities, the Canadian-born Los Angeles-based star says: “I’m going to seek some professional guidance on this,” she said. “My team is involved.”

Continuing, she added, “It was long, detailed and specific,” Marden said of the message, which allegedly came from the individual(s) claiming to assassinate politicians and celebrities professionally.

Marden allegedly was told, “No matter where I go in the world and if I try to run, I’ll be assassinated right away.”

“The detective is coming today to scan for devices or tracking pieces, and kind of rule things out one by one,” Marden said.

Though she has not heard from T.I.’s camp, Marden is hoping the rapper reaches out.

“I think T.I.’s left and is in Africa,” she explained. “I’m not sure if he’s fully aware of the scope of things. He was lovely to work with, was very considerate of my feelings on set.”

While law officials look into the death threats and assassins, Marden says she can handle the trolls on social media.

“I’ve never really been the victim of cyberbullying before. Having experienced it, it’s a real thing,” Marden explained.

“Bullying and attacking people online is one thing, and I’m glad that I can handle all of it. However, death threats and assassins are a whole different level,” she continued.

Melanie also spoke to TMZ about her situation… watch below.
