Donald Trump was once threatened with castration after courting the wrong woman — the daughter of a reputed New Jersey mobster, according to a new book.

Trump, while still married to his first wife Ivana, shamelessly tried to seduce the 30-something daughter of Robert Libutti, a short-tempered horse dealer with ties to John Gotti.

When Libutti got wind that Trump was trying to bed his daughter, the Garden State man confronted the real estate mogul and issued the most frightening of threats.

“Donald, I’ll f—–g pull your balls from your legs,” Libutti told him, according to journalist David Cay Johnston’s new book, “The Making of Donald Trump.”

Trump, wisely, backed off.

The tycoon fell for Edith Libutti in the late 1980s when he was in his early 40s and her father was one of the Trump Plaza casino’s highest rollers, according to Johnston.

“Trump lavished gifts on Libutti, was generous with his time, and, less graciously, repeatedly tried to seduce the gambler’s grown daughter,” Johnston wrote in the book, available on Tuesday.

Trump threw a lavish party for Edith Libutti’s 35th birthday, complete with a professional video tribute.

The Donald also gave her an over-the-top birthday present — a cream-colored Mercedes-Benz convertible, according to Johnston.

But Trump’s bid for Edith Libutti was soon derailed.

Steve Hyde, the Mormon elder who ran the Trump Plaza casino, saw Trump’s lust for Libutti was a disaster in the making.

Despite being married to Ivana Trump, the GOP nominee made a play for Edie Creamer, the daughter of Robert Libutti.

“Don’t ever let him go out with her, Bob. Don’t ever,” Hyde warned Robert Libutti, according to Johnston’s book.

“Why?” Libutti asked.

Hyde’s reply was blunt.

“You’ll wind up killing him and you’ll never come back here again,” he said.

Libutti’s daughter, now known as Edith Creamer, didn’t return Daily News requests for comment.

Robert Libutti allegedly berated dealers with racist and sexist slurs, leading Trump Plaza to remove black and female dealers from craps games for him.

Her father died in 2014 at the age of 82.

After Trump gave up his pursuit of Libutti’s daughter, the volatile gambler continued playing at Trump’s Atlantic City tables — and for good reason.

Trump had always pulled out all of the stops to reward Libutti for spending millions at his tables.

Trump bought him Ferraris and Rolls-Royces. He even shuttled Libutti around in his black Super Puma helicopter, according to Johnston.

“To keep Libutti’s lucrative business, Trump Plaza extended every privilege its best customer could imagine,” Johnston wrote.

Trump Plaza was hit with a $  200,000 fine for violating state anti-discrimination laws, and $  450,000 for gifting the mobster nine ultra-luxury cars.

But Trump’s affiliation with the foul-mouthed Libutti would lead to problems for both of them.

During his frequent losing streaks, Libutti was known to berate dealers and waitresses with racist and sexist slurs.

In 1991, state regulators launched an investigation into allegations that Trump Plaza removed black and female dealers from craps games to accommodate the high roller’s preference for white men running the gaming tables.

One state regulator described Libutti as “the most obnoxious, abusive person that we have had in this town,” according to records released at the time.

Trump Plaza was eventually hit with a $ 200,000 fine for violating state anti-discrimination laws.

Trump’s casino was also levied a $ 450,000 fine for gifting Libutti nine ultra-luxury cars — three Ferraris, three Rolls-Royces, a Mercedes and two Bentleys — many of which were immediately resold.

Amid the probe, Libutti was caught on tape referring to Gotti as his boss.

Libutti was eventually banned from all New Jersey casinos over his alleged ties to organized crime.

He denied the allegations, saying he was only “puffing” when he invoked the name of the feared boss of the Gambino crime family.

Despite a mountain of evidence suggesting otherwise, Trump told a reporter at the time that he barely knew Libutti.

“I have heard he is a high roller, but if he was standing here in front of me, I wouldn’t know what he looked like,” Trump told the Philadelphia Inquirer in February 1991.

After Yahoo News published a story about Trump’s connections to Libutti in March, Trump again denied knowing his one-time favorite casino customer.

“During the years I very successfully ran the casino business, I knew many high rollers. I assume Mr. Libutti was one of them, but I don’t recognize the name,” read a statement issued to Yahoo News.

Libutti’s daughter told Yahoo that Trump was full of it.

“He’s a liar,” Creamer said.

She confirmed that her father regularly flew in the Trump helicopter, and Trump invited her family onto his yacht after her 35th birthday party.

“I like Trump, but it pisses me off that he denies knowing my father,” Edith Creamer told Yahoo. “That hurts me.”

Creamer, despite her disappointment, said she’s backing The Donald for President.

“I’m voting for Trump,” she told Yahoo. “He’ll change the world — I think we need that.”

It turns out that her father felt the same way when Trump was flirting with a presidential run in 2011.

“I’m going to vote for the SOB,” Libutti said, according to his daughter.
