Delilah must have been attracted to Samson, but when money entered the picture, she loved money more than she did Samson,

Afterward it happened that he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. And the lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, “Entice him, and find out where his great strength lies, and by what means we may overpower him, that we may bind him to afflict him; and every one of us will give you eleven hundred pieces of silver.”

– Judges 16.4–5 

If she truly loved him, no amount of money would have moved her to betray him, but money and riches can possess a soul and make people do things that they never would have done before.
