Ivana Trump, former US President Donald Trump’s first wife, died at the age of 73. She was well-known for decades in New York social circles after she married the real-estate entrepreneur Trump in the late 1970s. She was born in Czechoslovakia and moved to New York, where she found fame as a New York socialite and an executive in the Trump Organization.
Police officers in New York found her unconscious and unresponsive in her flat on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and she was pronounced dead at the scene. A cause of death wasn’t given, but the NYPD said her death doesn’t appear to result from a crime.
The former model and Donald Trump had three children: Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. The couple divorced in the early 1990s in a messy public drama.
Donald Trump wrote in a statement on Truth Social: “She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life,” he wrote, saying that her three children were her pride and joy.
