Melania Trump, the former first lady, and wife of ex-president Donald Trump, is reportedly distancing herself from her husband amidst rumors of cheating scandals. Melania Trump did not accompany the former president to New York for his arraignment Tuesday and did not appear by his side when he gave a news conference at Mar-a-Lago that night to protest his innocence and to denounce the prosecution as politically motivated.
The controversy sparked around the hush money payment that Cohen admitted that he made to Stormy Daniels during the fall of Trump’s 2016 White House bid to keep her from coming forward about an alleged affair she had with the then-candidate. Trump has denied the affair. Previously, TMZ reported that Daniels was experiencing the impact of Trump’s potential impending arrest and reportedly strengthening her security after receiving multiple threats.
While her husband continues to host rallies and speaking engagements as part of his 2024 presidential campaign, Melania doesn’t have plans to get involved.
“Melania is not now or hasn’t recently taken part in her husband’s political events,” as per reports of PEOPLE. “It is not comfortable for her.”
The source adds that Melania has her own life at the couple’s Palm Beach, Florida, home at Mar-a-Lago and likes to be left to herself, even as chaos and drama surround the former first couple.
“Melania can be aloof and not particularly friendly because she simply wants to be left alone,” the source says.
