On Thursday, Vanessa Trump officially filed for divorce from her husband, eldest Trump son Donald Jr., in Manhattan Supreme Court.
"The president’s daughter-in-law filed for an uncontested proceeding, meaning she’s not expecting a legal battle over custody of the couple’s five children or their assets," reports Page Six.
The couple, who wed in 2005 and have five children together, were struggling through marital issues, according to multiple sources published in a Page Six report on Wednesday. The couple have not legally separated but are said to be "living separate lives."
Don Jr. and Vanessa have yet to comment on the matter, and neither has representation for the couple despite numerous requests.
“The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president’s time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues. He’s never there," disclosed one source.
Another source said the 40-year-old's frequent travel has stunted the relationship. "Don Jr. has been busy traveling, which has contributed to their problems. Vanessa is a devoted mother, but she is increasingly lonely and alone in the house with the children," the source said.
Don Jr. “appears to have changed recently, and friends are concerned about him," agreed two sources, per Page Six.
Also, the mother of five is reportedly "uncomfortable" with the family attention. “Vanessa is by nature is a very low-key person, and she is uncomfortable with the attention her family is getting now the Trumps are on the world stage," claimed a source. "She is also worried for her kids, particularly after she received the threatening letter containing the white powder.”
Last month, Vanessa was rushed to the hospital after a white substance was found in a letter she opened that was addressed to her husband. Thankfully, the white powder was found to be non-hazardous.
“It was terrifying for Vanessa, who is naturally worried for the safety of her children," the source explained.
