E. Jean Carroll is known as an American journalist and advice columnist. She is most famous for her "Ask E. Jean" column in Elle magazine since 1993 and her sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump.
Elizabeth Jean Carroll was born on December 12, 1943 in Detroit, Michigan, to a Jewish family, and nicknamed "Betty Jean" since the start of her life. Her father, Tom Carroll, is an innovator, and her mom, Betty Carroll, is a retired Allen County, Indiana politician. Carroll was brought up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She went to Indiana University, where she was a Pi Beta Phi and a team cheerleader and was delegated Miss Indiana University. In 1964, representing Indiana University, she won the Miss Cheerleader USA title. Carroll appeared on the mid-1980s version of Card Sharks hosted by Bob Eubanks.
In 2002 Carroll's "The Cheerleaders," which appeared in Spin, was chosen as one of the year's "Best True Crime Reporting" pieces. Similarly, it appeared in Best American Crime Writing, edited by Otto Penzler, Thomas H. Cook and Nicholas Pileggi. Carroll has been a contributing supervisor to Esquire, Outside and Playboy magazines. For an April 1992 issue of Esquire, she chronicled the lives of basketball groupies in a story called "Love in the Time of Magic". In June 1994, she went to Indiana and researched why four white farm children were tossed out of school for dressing like black artists in "The Return of the White Negro".
In June 2019, Carroll made headlines with a new book. President Donald Trump is one of six men who Carroll blames for sexually assaulting her. Another is former CBS CEO Les Moonves. In an excerpt, Carroll says that when she initially met Trump he perceived her as "that advice woman." While Carroll called him "that real estate honcho." Carroll said she was helping Trump purchase a lingerie present for a lady, at the time Trump was married to his second spouse, Marla Maples. At the point when Trump demanded that Carroll try on the underwear, she says he drove her in a bad position started and started forcefully raping her. She was able to get push him off and run away.
Her friends and family told her to keep quiet because they said Trump had so much power to ruin her life. When Trump was told of the news, he claimed that he never met Carroll. The internet fought back and posted a photo of Carroll with Donald Trump during the period she claims that she knew him.
