A New York woman alleged Saturday that Donald Trump tried to kiss her on the lips nearly 20 years ago when he was introduced to her at a Mother's Day brunch at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

The woman, Cathy Heller, now 63, told the Guardian that she, her husband, three children and in-laws were among dozens of families seated at big round tables at the brunch in Palm Beach.

Heller marks the 10th woman to allege that Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has made sexual advances or other aggressive sexual behavior toward them since before last Sunday's debate with Hillary Clinton at Washington University in St. Louis.

Trump has denied the accusations.

According to Heller, Trump was greeting members of his club. He then stopped at their table — and when her mother-in-law introduced them, Heller stood and extended her hand.

"He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips," Heller told the Guardian.

She said she then leaned back to avoid him, almost losing her balance.

"He said, 'Oh, come on.' He was strong.

"And he grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips," Heller said.

She said she turned her head — and Trump ended up kissing her on the side of her mouth.

"He kept me there for a little too long," Heller told the Guardian. "And then he just walked away."

Heller told the Guardian that she met Clinton briefly at a March fundraiser — and donated the individual maximum of $2,700 to her campaign in January.

Her husband's family has sued Mar-A-Lago to recover initiation fees that her late in-laws paid to join, according to the report.

The club will refund fees under certain circumstances when an individual is no longer a member, the Guardian reports, and Heller said she has called a club manager at least once seeking to recover the money, which she said totaled several thousand dollars.

After the Guardian published its report, Trump responded with this tweet:

Jason Miller, a campaign spokesman, also slammed Heller's story.

"The media has gone too far in making this false accusation," he said in a statement. "There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr. Trump’s resort.

"It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.

"The reality is this: for the media to wheel out a politically motivated Democratic activist with a legal dispute against this same resort owned by Mr. Trump does a disservice to the public, and anyone covering this story should be embarrassed for elevating this bogus claim."
