Melania Trump said to be “eyeing up” divorce from ex-President

Melania Trump is said to be eyeing up a divorce from ex-President Donald Trump.

The speculation comes as the couple mark their 16th wedding anniversary.

A former White House aide claims the Trumps had many “frosty and awkward” moments during their time together in Washington.

It’s reported the couple had a “transactional” marriage and slept in separate bedrooms.

The former aide told the Mirror:

“Melania was counting every minute until the end of Donald’s presidency so she could leave him”.

Melania, 50, is 24 years younger than her husband.

The couple have a 14-year-old son Barron.

The Mirror says the former model could receive a £36 million pay-off .

However, the deal would be subject to strict non-disclosure clauses.
