Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump, has died aged 73.
The former American president paid tribute to his late ex-wife in a brief statement.
Donald Trump said, “I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there were many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”
Ivana and Trump tied the knot in 1977, and had three kids — Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric.
They divorced in 1992 after Trump was reported to have been in an affair with Marla Maples, which left Ivana furious.
