Insiders say Melania Trump is still “angry” at Donald over the Stormy Daniels drama, and reports have arisen once again that the two are “living separate lives” as she isolates herself from her husband’s life.
Melania and Donald Trump living separate lives
Sources say, amid all the drama of Stormy Daniels and Donald’s current indictment, 52-year-old Melania is continuing her life at the couple’s Palm Beach home, despite the circus surrounding her 76-year-old husband.
“Melania is leading her own life, and still feels happy being at Mar-a-Lago, surrounded by people who love her and who never talk about reality, or bad things about her husband,” a social source told People. “She remains angry and doesn’t want to hear [the alleged hush money payment] mentioned.”
“She is aware of who her husband is and keeps her life upbeat with her own family and a few close friends,” the source added.
Melania has been upset by the Daniels accusations since at least 2018, which is when the Wall Street Journal broke the story that Trump had paid $130,000 in hush money to the former adult film star, according to the source.
According to the accusations surrounding the hush money payment, Trump was rumored to have had an extramarital affair with Daniels, which is alleged to have taken place less than four months after Melania gave birth to the couple’s son, Barron, in 2006.
Claims Melania and Donald living separate lives go back to 2018
Reports that the pair were living separate lives go all the way back to 2018 when famed reporter Bob Woodward published his book about the Trump presidency entitled Fear. In the book, Woodward wrote that Donald and Melania were indeed in love, but the pair are basically living two separate lives, Yahoo Life reported in September 2018.
In February 2021, The Daily Star published an exclusive report that also claimed Donald and Melania were living separately after having moved from the White House on January 20 back to Donald’s Mar-a-Lago resort in southern Florida.
A relationship expert pointed out the number of unhappy-looking pictures of Melania. However, doomsayers have been predicting the couple was headed for divorce as far back as Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. But as of 2023, the couple is still together, despite the Stormy Daniels situation rearing its head once more as Donald is being indicted on over 30 charges.
