It is now just over a week since the former President and First Lady left the White House for the last time. Since their departure, there has been intense speculation that Melania will finally break the bond with her husband and file for divorce. A White House source told CNN that the former First Lady was “checked out” in the wake of the storming of the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters.
The source added: “She just isn’t in a place mentally or emotionally anymore where she wants to get involved.”
Fuel was added to the speculation as Melania was filmed walking away expressionless from her husband after they had landed in Florida last week.
This was not the first time the former model had been filmed pulling away from her husband.
Over the years a number of clips have gone viral, igniting a bonfire of rumours about their relationship.
However, a society publicist and “friendly acquaintance” of the Trumps said he doubted that the they would divorce.
R Couri Hay told the Mirror: “The likelihood is 99.99% they will stay together.
“I’d truly be shocked if Melania formally separated and divorced from her husband.
