Why Was She Divorced By Donald Trump
It’s nothing new that Marla Maples was once the wife of America’s 45th President Donald J. Trump. She married the business mogul, TV personality, and politician as his second wife in December 1993, but they first met in 1989 and kept their relationship secret until it leaked out after Trump’s first wife when Ivana approached her during her family vacation in Aspen, Colorado. Trump later divorced Ivana to join the Maples, who had their daughter Tiffany Ariana Trump on October 13, 1993. In December 2013, she made the alliance with Trump at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, where celebrities like O. J. Simpson and Rosie O’Donnell were among the thousands of guests.
The relationship between Maples and Trump became very well known, unfortunately, it only lasted four years. As expected, many wondered why the two suddenly parted ways. From Trump’s perspective, he divorced Maples because he allegedly had an affair with her bodyguard. This happened after a policeman found Maples together with the bodyguard on a deserted beach at 4 a.m. As for Maples, her marriage to Trump was an illusion, so divorce was necessary.
Marla Maples also described Trump as someone who was “selfish” and “obsessed”. Both separated in May 1997 and the divorce papers were finalized on June 8, 1999. Maples, who in turn refused to fight the terms of the prenuptial agreement she had signed with Trump before her marriage, only separated with $2 million as a divorce settlement. She had to raise her daughter alone.
