Melania Trump is ‘counting every minute’: Is the Melania and Donald’s 15-year-old marriage over?

It’s no news that former US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump has been troubled for a while. She has mostly stayed away from traditional First Lady duties like travelling with her husband during his tenure.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, an ex-political adviser to Trump, claims that the relationship between Melania and Trump and was over and she was just waiting for President Trump to lose the US presidential election 2020 to divorce him. The 15-year marriage of Donald and Melania Trump is “over” and “Melania is counting every minute until he is out of the office and she can divorce” said Newman.“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,” she added.

How much Settlement would Melania Trump Receive?

Melania and Trump tied the knot 15 years ago and have one child together, Barron Trump. There are rumours that Melania is now planning to end her marriage with Trump. According to Legal experts, if Melania part ways with Trump, she could receive a settlement of as much as US$50 million.

“In this situation, if she has $50 million, she can afford to buy something. But $50 million, while it’s definitely a lot of money, in New York City, for what she’s used to, she wouldn’t be able to replicate what she has now. He probably had a good sense of what kind of lifestyle they’d be living, so I would imagine the payout would be fairly generous,” divorce lawyer Jacqueline Newman, a managing partner at Manhattan-based Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, told Town and Country.

Talking of his marriages, Trump tied the nuptial knot first with Ivana, Czech-American businesswoman, media personality, fashion designer and model, in 1977. The couple together had Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump. They separated in 1992.
