Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa are parting from each other after 12 years of marriage as his wife filed a divorce case against him on Thursday.
As per court reports, Vanessa filed for an uncontested divorce with Trump Jr. in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday. It meant that she is not expecting any legal battle over custody of the couple’s five children or their assets. The filing came a day after speculation of divorce on Wednesday.
The pair had married on November 12, 2005, at his father’s Mara-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. It was the same spot where the US prez married his third wife, Melania.
In a media statement, Trumps stated,” After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
The duo was introduced at a fashion show in 2003.
A local source who socializes with the couple told the media,” I heard for a while they have been living separate lives…Even before all this entire Trump presidency stuff started they weren’t good and their marriage strained.
Another source close to the family had other views. They said,” This is surprising news. They always seemed very cute together, and were really fun couple.”
The news has come after former model Vanessa, 40 was hospitalized after the family received a suspicious letter containing a white, powdery substance that police later found non-toxic.
Earlier the couple did not spend Valentine’s Day together, opting instead to treat their children to separate dinners.
