Sad Report: Donald Trump Jr. and Wife File for Divorce

I’ve never been one to get all investing in celebrity relationships and drama. I thought it was a sad day when I found out about Chris Pratt and Anna Farris calling it quits on their marriage. However, until today, I think that is the only famous couple split to ever make me feel sad.

Today, I read reports about Donald Trump Jr. and his wife filing for divorce and I honestly just felt my heart sink a little bit.

The New York Daily News said the couple’s divorce was listed as “uncontested.”

Trump Jr., a top executive at the Trump Organization and President Trump‘s oldest son, married Vanessa, a former model, in 2005. The pair, both 40, has five children.

Neither has publicly commented on their split.

Vanessa Trump was taken to the hospital as a precaution last month after opening a letter containing white powder. The substance, accompanied by a letter calling Trump Jr. “an awful, awful person,” turned out to be corn starch.

“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” Trump Jr. said after it happened.

“Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior,” he added.

As far as we could all tell, there was no trouble in paradise. It is truly disheartening to see them split up.
