Trump administration aide Omarosa Manigault Newman reportedly set off White House alarms in an attempt to gain access to the residence after learning that she had been fired from her job.

According to a report from CBS News, Manigault Newman tried to enter the White House residence after chief of staff John Kelly told her that her employment in the administration would end in January.

Manigault Newman, a former contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” has served as the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. 

{mosads}April Ryan, a journalist with American Urban Radio Networks, reported during an on-air appearance with CNN that “everything blew up” when Kelly attempted to discuss Manigault Newman’s walk-in privileges and access to Trump.

Ryan reported Manigault Newman saying that “all hell will break loose” if she lost walk-in privileges. Kelly, according to Ryan, said “OK, all hell is going to break loose.”

Kelly reportedly began restricting Manigault Newman’s access in September.

The White House said Wednesday that Manigault Newman provided her resignation and that her last day of employment would be Jan. 20. The White House did not confirm that Manigault Newman was fired.

The Secret Service said it was not “involved” in removing Manigault Newman from the premises, but said the agency deactivated her credentials.
