Melania Trump Offered Support to Daughter-In-Law During Divorce

When Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa, called it quits, the couple had been married for 12 years and have five children. But rumors that they were unhappy have been circulating for a while. Some have said that the two were living apart for a while.

During the divorce, Vanessa turned to an unlikely person for support: Melania.

First Lady Melania Trump was reportedly a great help to Vanessa, according to reports. As Vanessa struggled with all the details after her split with Trump's 40-year-old son, FLOTUS did what she can to help the mother of five through it.

According to Hollywood Life, a Washington D.C. insider says Melania offered guidance and support to her daughter-in-law during that tough time. "Vanessa has been leaning on Melania who has been advising Vanessa through her challenging divorce,” our source said.

“No one knows how to handle the Trump men better than Melania who has been pivotal in helping Vanessa navigate the lawyers and media attention.”

Melania herself was probably sympathetic to Vanessa. Rumors have swirled since the 2016 campaign that the former fashion model was waiting for the election to be over so that she could serve her husband with divorce papers. She was as shocked as anyone that he actually won, and according to reports, she decided to put the divorce on hold to avoid a scandal.

Melania has appeared to be angry at her husband on a number of occasions, swatting him away or refusing to hold his hand. She’s remained silent with the latest scandal featuring porn star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2005, just weeks after Melania gave birth to Barron Trump.

Vanessa had filed for an 'uncontested proceeding', hinting that the couple had a pre-nuptial agreement when they were married. The complaint was kept confidential.

“His relationship with Vanessa started getting rocky two years ago, when his dad started to campaign,” said one inside source, according to US Weekly. “Vanessa is very close to her family and very private and does not like all this attention on her family. They’ve been unhappy for a while.”

No doubt, Trump’s political career has taken a toll on the entire family. Donald Trump Jr. himself has been at the center of a number of firestorms, from the secret meeting he had with a Russian lawyer in order to obtain dirt on Hillary Clinton, to the time he posted photos hunting big game.

It's been an eventful time for Vanessa. Just before filing for divorce against Don Jr., she and her mother had to be hospitalized because she opened a letter addressed to her husband that contained a white powdered substance. The hospitalization was a precaution, and thankfully she and her mother were both given a clean bill of health. It was a scary moment for the family.

The two met thanks to President Trump, who reportedly introduced the couple initially. Vanessa was pursuing a career as an actress and model. They were married in 2005 at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, and went on to have two daughters and three sons.
