In book, Ivana Trump relives divorce from future president
NEW YORK (AP) — A new book from Donald Trump’s first wife pulls back the curtain on a tumultuous period of the president’s life, including the messy divorce that was splashed across New York’s tabloids for weeks.
Ivana Trump, who was married to the real estate magnate from 1977 to 1992, writes in “Raising Trump” about the heartache that Trump’s public affair with Marla Maples caused her and the couple’s three children. Donald Trump Jr. didn’t speak to his father for a year after the split.
But Ivana Trump and the president have returned to far warmer terms. She writes that they speak about once a week and that she encourages him to keep using Twitter.
The book is set to be released next week. The Associated Press purchased an early copy.
