Melania Trump, the former First Lady of the United States, has been the subject of a new conspiracy theory that is gaining traction on the internet. The theory suggests that Melania is unhappy and isolated in Mar-a-Lago, following her husband’s indictment for allegedly making hush money payments to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election.
People magazine has published several articles featuring anonymous sources who claim that Melania has been avoiding social interaction and is displeased with her husband’s situation. Recently, Melania’s office released a statement in response to the ongoing speculation about her personal life.
The statement, which was tweeted on Tuesday, called for caution and good judgment when assessing articles that cite unnamed sources. Melania’s office also emphasized the need to verify information and not to jump to conclusions based on rumors and speculation.
News organizations have made assumptions about the former First Lady’s stance on subjects that are personal, professional, and political over the past few weeks,” her office tweeted on Tuesday. “In these articles, unnamed sources are cited to bolster the author’s claims.”
“We ask readers to exercise caution and good judgment when determining whether or not stories concerning the former First Lady are accurate, particularly when they fail to cite Mrs. Trump as a source of information.”
This is not the first time that Melania has been the target of rumors and conspiracy theories. During her time as First Lady, she was the subject of several false claims, including the infamous “Fake Melania” theory, which suggested that a body double was posing as her in public appearances.
As the legal proceedings against her husband continue, it remains to be seen how Melania will navigate her public image and respond to the ongoing rumors and speculation about her personal life.
We ask readers to exercise caution and good judgment when determining whether or not stories concerning the former First Lady are accurate, particularly when they fail to cite Mrs. Trump as a source of information.
