So, it’s official: Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa are going to be getting divorced. But what are the reasons for the couple’s split?
Well, before you start pointing the finger at Don Jr.s’ father, it’s worth noting that the President of the United States had nothing to do with this. Here’s what’s really been going on.
Page Six Saw The Writing On The Wall
Donald Trump Jr.’s marital problems were predicted in Page Six on March 14th, 2018. They announced that they saw divorce in the future.
And the very next day, the Trump couple released a statement confirming their 12-year marriage was over.
Was Don Jr. Cheating?
The singer Aubrey O’Day was linked to Donald Jr. romantically. Inside sources say that she fell for him hard and that he told her he was going to leave his wife.
However, it’s also thought Vanessa found out and put a stop to things between the two.
Social Media Horror Stories
Friends of the couple also say that Vanessa had become increasingly tired of her husband’s bombastic and attacking nature on Twitter.
In particular, she seems to have been offended by his pro-gun Tweets in the wake of the Parkland shootings.
An Anthrax Scare Probably Didn’t Help
Vanessa Trump, in February 2018, opened a package at home to find she’d been mailed a lot of white powder.
It turned out to be corn starch after it was tested but you can imagine the fear of anthrax poisoning didn’t endear her husband’s family to her.
Don Jr.s Supposed To Be Cheap
Vanessa’s wedding ring had a $100,000 sticker value but it was given to her for free in exchange for publicity. The wedding was held at Mar-a-Lago to keep expenses down too.
In fact, there’s general agreement that Don Jr.s just a cheapskate.
Vanessa Has Been Lonely
Vanessa feels like she’s seen less and less of Don. Jr. as their marriage has gone on.
She feels trapped at home with the kids while her husband spends all his time socializing and hunting.
He has repeatedly boasted that hunting is the first love of his life.
They’ve Probably Been Apart For A While Now
The Trumps, Don Jr and Vanessa at least, haven’t been seen together in public since the end of November 2017.
That suggests that they’ve not been feeling “together” for a long while now and that the divorce was already on its way last year.
They Say Don. Jr Is Glad It’s Over
Vanessa hasn’t said much about the divorce but Don Jr. took to social media to show all is good for him.
His friends also say that he’s glad that the marriage is finally over. He may be less so when he faces Vanessa’s attorney in the divorce courts.
