Goldberg says "The Apprentice" star enticed her into buying two condos at Chicago's Trump International Hotel & Tower with an offer to share profits of the entire building.

But she told jurors at the civil trial in Chicago that she felt "conned" when Trump withdrew the profit-sharing plan after she bought the condos.

Testifying last week, Trump denied the allegations. He also told reporters that Goldberg was in fact trying to rip him off.
