Melania Trump can't wait to leave the White House to get away from the political world, but also to finally get a divorce, according to a former close friend of the presidential couple. Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former associate of Donald Trump, said that:
Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce.
It doesn't really come at a surprise since sources at the White House have already revealed that the Trump couple sleeps in separate beds.
These words were revealed in the shocking book Unhinged, published in 2018 and which resurfaced during this election period. According to her, their marriage 15 years ago was ‘transactional,’ and it is now coming to an end. But why wait? According to the same source:
If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her.
So, officially Melania continues to support her husband... but for how long?
Omarosa Manigault Newman, who is currently touring TV programs to promote herself, met the Trump couple seventeen years ago, a year before their wedding, after having participated in Donald Trump's reality show, The Apprentice. In a television interview aired on October 27th, she said:
What I've observed over the past 17 years would make your head spin. Sometimes they love each other, but sometimes he disgusts her.
Her prenuptial agreement renegotiated
This post-presidential divorce would not come as a surprise if one takes into account the fact that Melania Trump renegotiated her prenuptial agreement after her husband's inauguration. This information was revealed by her former counsellor and best friend Stephanie Wolkoff and author Mary Jordan in the biography The Art of Her Deal. While the First Lady says she waited five months before moving into the White House for her son Barron to finish his school year, both sources say she had the ‘financial arrangement’ in case of divorce changed so that their son would get a fair share of the real estate tycoon's fortune.
