It looks like Donald Trump Jr. might just be following in his father, Donald Trump’s, footsteps, with news that he and wife, Vanessa, have decided to end their marriage.
According to Page Six, Vanessa and Donald Jr. were reportedly “headed for divorce“, as confirmed by “multiple sources.” The publication said that they were not legally separated at that time, but were living separately.
However, since news first rang out, Vanessa has officially filed for divorce after being married to Donald Jr. for 13 years.
According to one source, “The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president’s time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues. He’s never there.”
Another source told Page Six, “Don Jr. has been busy traveling, which has contributed to their problems. Vanessa is a devoted mother, but she is increasingly lonely and alone in the house with the children.”
Vanessa reportedly was growing concerned over the nature of Donald Jr.’s tweets (perhaps a trait he inherited from his father), with Vanity Fair stating that Vanessa believed they were “unhinged.”
Apparently Donald Jr. had been tweeting, liking, and retweeting posts about guns, antidepressants linked to mass murder crimes, and an online attack against one of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
Donald Jr. has been in hot water before about his online activity, including his penchant for hunting animals and his tweet about taking away his daughter’s Halloween candy in order to “teach her about socialism.”
The sources also said that Vanessa was uncomfortable with the attention on the family, with her father-in-law being the President of the United States. Apparently, “Vanessa by nature is a very low-key person, and she is uncomfortable with the attention her family is getting now the Trumps are on the world stage. She is also worried for her kids, particularly after she received the threatening letter containing the white powder.”
The couple have yet to comment on the divorce publicly.
