Donald Trump wasn’t the one to stay silent when all of this happened. He stated that hate for him and love for his ex-wife is quite logical. According to the 45th US President, 50% of people will always side with a woman who was left, especially if she was left for a prettier one.
Because of all the ruckus that Ivana/Donald divorce was, POTUS was cautious about his future commitments. He wanted to make sure that Maples won’t go after his money the same as Ivana did.
To ensure this, the pair signed an extensive prenuptial agreement. According to this contract, Maples would only receive $1 million in a case of a divorce, and another additional million for her to buy a house. Child support for her daughter Tiffany was $100,000. Another interesting fact is that she also signed a contract that forbids her to ever discuss their marriage in public via book, diary, or a memoir.
As of 2005, Donald Trump is happily married to Melania Trump, with whom she has one child, a son called Baron Trump.
