Vanessa Trump and Donald Trump Jr., the son of the previous president of the United States, divorced after 13 years of marriage. Who is Vanessa, and how wealthy is she? Here is the answer and more information on their separation.
Vanessa, a former model, grew up on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. She co-starred with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton in the successful romantic comedy “Something’s Gotta Give.”
According to Vanity Fair, although she was not as wealthy as the Trumps, she was accustomed to living a lavish lifestyle. Before marrying Donald Jr., she reportedly dated celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Saudi ambassador Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan Al Saud.
In 2003, Vanessa was introduced to Donald Jr. by his father during a fashion presentation.
They were wed in 2005 and divorced in 2018. Donald John III, Kai Madison, Tristan Milos, Chloe Sophia, and Spencer Frederick are their five children.
According to South China Morning Post, the couple separated a year after Vanessa earned an estimated $62 million fortune from her father’s investment in Rao’s Homemade pasta sauce.
According to Page Six’s sources, Vanessa divorced Donald Jr. for reportedly treating her as a second-class citizen.
One insider said he gave her “very little help and has been keeping her on a tight budget. She doesn’t live a lavish life and can very rarely pick up a check at dinner.”
Another source claimed:
“Don Jr. was never generous with money. Vanessa has had to rely on her mother for financial help for her personal needs.”
However, a spokeswoman for Vanessa refuted that he treated her cruelly, stating, “All of these allegations are just false. Don and Vanessa have always had enormous regard for one another. The suggestion that she has relied on her family for support is completely incorrect and totally absurd.”
Donald Jr. is currently seeing Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News anchor.
Vanessa previously endorsed her ex-new husband’s romance.
Vanessa Trump previously wrote on Twitter:
“We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives!”
