Aaron Smith's sex scandal has taken another embarrassing turn.

Last year the All Black halfback was reportedly caught having sex in a disabled toilet at Christchurch Airport.

Now, the woman involved in the incident has spoken out.

In a clip that aired on 1News this morning the woman explained:

"The way they had portrayed me was being as an absolute 'ho', a woman that had targeted this guy at the airport and forced myself on him and I'd acted in such a way that they didn't even want their players around me anymore."

A full interview with the woman is scheduled to air tonight on Seven Sharp.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail Australia has published messages Smith apparently sent to the woman.

The woman claims she first became intimate with Smith in 2014.

"I had been seeing Aaron on and off for years before he met his current girlfriend," the woman told the Daily Mail Australia.

The messages imply that the rugby star pressured her to lie about the affair, and asking her to sign a false affidavit saying they didn't have sex.

They also allege that Smith lied to All Blacks coach Steve Hansen and the public about what happened in the disabled toilet cubicle at Christchurch Airport.
