Most people may be quite familiar with US President Donald Trump's wife Melania and daughter Ivanka but not his daughter-in-law Vanessa, who has kept a low profile so far. Vanessa has now hit the headlines following reports that she and her husband Donald Trump Jr may be heading for a divorce.
Page Six has reported citing several sources that Donald Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr., 40, and his wife Vanessa, who have been married for 12 years, are going through a rough patch in their marriage. Friends of the couple have said that they might soon file for a divorce as they have been living separately though not separated legally.
"The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president's time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues. He's never there," a source told Page Six.
Another source said that Donald Trump Jr's lifestyle has affected his relationship with wife Vanessa. He has been busy traveling and continuing his hunting expeditions, which has taken a toll on their marriage. The source added that Vanessa is "increasingly lonely and alone in the house with the children."
Meanwhile, another source close to the couple told the publication that they do have issues but not to the point of filing for a divorce.
