Like father, like son.
Donald Trump Jr.’s wife has filed for divorce.
Vanessa Trump married Trump Jr. in 2005. They have five children.
The reasons for the divorce filed Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court were not clear. The divorce was listed as “uncontested,” indicating the split was amicable. Trump Jr., 40, has been traveling extensively while running his father’s business with his brother, Eric.
President Trump has been divorced twice and is married to Melania Trump. Trump’s first wife Ivana is Trump Jr.’s mother.
The Trumps issued a joint statement asking for privacy.
“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
Last month, Vanessa, 40, was taken to a hospital after opening an envelope addressed to Trump Jr. containing a white powder. A note accompanied the powder — which was later determined to be corn starch — read “now you get what you deserve,” sources said.
A Massachusetts man, Daniel Frisiello, 24, was charged with sending the menacing message and scary powder to the couple, as well as four other public figures.
