Vanessa Trump is divorcing her husband, Donald Trump, Jr., the son of President Donald Trump. The couple are said to have been leading separate lives after 13 years as man and wife.
The couple have five children together, Kai, Donald III, Spencer, Tristan and Chloe.
In a 2006 interview with the New York Times, Vanessa — who, is heading for divorce with Don Jr., — said that they were first introduced by his dad, Donald Trump Sr. at a 2003 fashion show.
Vanessa said that Trump Sr. approached her and said, “I wanted to introduce you to my son Donald Trump Jr.”
She added that the three chatted “awkwardly,” and then during a later break in the fashion show, “Donald [Sr.] comes back up to me again, ‘I don’t think you’ve met my son Donald Trump Jr.’ ”
Vanessa responded, “Yeah, we just met five minutes ago.”
She and Don Jr. later met again at a birthday party at Manhattan hot spot Butter, and after an hour of chatting, Vanessa remembered their first encounter — and she told Don Jr., “You’re the one with the retarded dad!”
According to Page Six, Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa are set to divorce: “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.”
