On Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump Jr. was hit with divorce papers from wife Vanessa, who filed in Manhattan Superior Court.
The couple released a joint statement to People magazine, saying, “After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
Hours after the divorce news broke, Don Jr. put the focus on their daughter Chloe, 3, on Instagram. He wrote, “No matter what is going on bedtime cuddling with the smurf puts a Yuge smile on my face. #bedtime #daddysgirl #cuddle.”
Earlier this week, Page Six reported that Don Jr. and Vanessa were heading for divorce since “it is getting harder to resolve their issues.”
In happier times, “Extra” has had extraordinary access to their love story, from Don’s proposal to their wedding day to the birth of their first child.
