Melania Trump reportedly wants to get a divorce as soon as possible
Washington, D.C. - Melania Trump is rumored to be eagerly awaiting the moment when Donald Trump has to leave the White House – so she can finally get the divorce that she has reportedly wanted for a long time.
After losing a historic presidential election, Trump might soon also lose his third wife. Melania Trump could file for divorce as early as January 2021, not long after Joe Biden (77) is sworn in as the 46th president of the Unites States.
The 50-year-old former model seemingly wants to end the marriage, according to the Daily Mail.
The report cites Omarosa Manigault Newman, an actor, author, and former political advisor to the outgoing president, who allegedly said that the Trumps' relationship is basically over.
"Melania counts every minute until he is finally out of office and she can divorce," Newman is quoted as saying.
A separation while Trump is still in office is out of the question: "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."
Ex-wives of Donald Trump are sworn to secrecy
Whether there really is anything to the rumors that suggest Donald Trump is indeed facing a third divorce is of course impossible to say for certain.
But it's not the first time this possibility has been mentioned. As early as September, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former friend and assistant of Melania Trump, told the BBC that the Trumps' marriage is only a "transactional" one, which affords the Slovenian–American access to the luxury she craves.
Donald Trump has signed strict non-disclosure agreements with his two former ex-wives. They are not allowed to publish books about him or make critical comments about him, for instance. According to lawyer Christina Previte, there could be a very similar arrangement with Melania.
It remains to be seen how the turbulent life of Donald Trump, who is still refusing to accept the results of the election, will continue.
