Donald Trump and Melania Trump split? Yep! She just revealed in a new interview with ‘DuJour’ that she and her husband broke up a few years ago, and it was because he was planning on running for president. Keep reading for all the details!
Donald Trump, 69, and Melania Trump, 46 may seem to have the perfect marriage right now, but who knew they actually called it quits for a few months back in 2000? The model recently opened up to DuJour magazine about her relationship with The Donald, and needless to say, his thoughts of campaigning for president back then created a huge wedge between them. Could the same thing happen to them during this presidential run?
During the interview with DuJour, Melania recalled her early days of dating the billionaire. And it wasn’t always perfect! She and Donald actually broke up before. “When we were dating in 1999, he was thinking about running with the Reform Party,” she told the mag.
Some have suggested that the reason they briefly split back then was because he was too focused on his campaign. “That was part of it,” she clarified. “We were apart for a few months, not long. We got back together. He was always thinking about [a presidential run]. But he loved what he did, he had his business.”
Obviously that split didn’t cause too much drama for the couple. They eventually got married in a fancy, star-studded ceremony at their Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago, in 2005. Guess who was in attendance, too? Hillary, 68 and Bill Clinton, 69! They attended the nuptials, and Melania even dished on their wedding faux pas. “I don’t think they sent a gift,” she said. “Some people didn’t send gifts.” Ouch!
So HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Donald and Melania broke up before?
