Vanessa Trump, Donald Trump Jr. Divorce: Did Former Model Open An Envelope Containing White Powder?
Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Haydon Trump, have already filed for divorce on Thursday. Could it be true that the former model, Vanessa, has already been struggling with her marriage to the First Son for months?
According to a report by New Haven Register, Vanessa Trump and Donald Trump Jr. filed for uncontested divorce last week at a court in Manhattan. This means that the soon-to-be ex-couple have no disagreements between each other when it comes to financial or divorce-related issues.
“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," they said in a joint statement. "We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
The divorce filing comes after the news a month ago that Vanessa received an envelope containing white powder, which was reportedly addressed to the son of Donald Trump. Luckily, the stuff was believed to be safe and not hazardous at all. Trump Jr. then posted his thoughts about the incident on social media and stated that his family is safe.
"Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning," Trump Jr. tweeted back in February 2018. "Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior."
It is yet to be confirmed if this threat sparked Vanessa's decision to file for divorce. However, reports claimed that the two have been going through a rough road in their marriage for months.
Vanessa and the oldest son of the President met at a fashion show back in 2003. Two years later, they got married at Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach, Florida which is owned by the Trump family. They lived in Midtown Manhattan during the weekdays and spends their weekend in Catskills.
As of this writing, Vanessa Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are yet to disclose their plans after their divorce has been finalized.
