Like the rest of the world, it appears that Vanessa Trump has had enough of her husband, Donald Trump, Jr. The once-aspiring actress and model filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years in March 2018. Now, it appears that she is ready to move forward with her children and put the Trump circus behind her.
Considering Trump Jr.’s antics since his father Donald Trump’s residential campaign and election, an anthrax scare, and news of her soon-to-be ex-husband’s alleged affair with Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day, we can see why Vanessa Trump has had enough. However, cheating, politics, and scary substances might not be the only reason the mother of five is washing her hands of Trump, Jr. Apparently, the businessman is also ridiculously cheap.
A very tacky engagement
When Trump Jr. proposed to Vanessa back in 2004, it wasn’t exactly the most romantic gesture in the world. Though the president’s son popped the question with a $100,000 engagement ring, he apparently wrangled it for free.
According to the New York Post, Trump, Jr. got down on one knee at the Short Hills Mall in New Jersey at the Bailey, Banks & Biddle jewelry store. Along with the “happy couple,” paparazzi and TV camera crews were present.
Apparently, Trump, Jr. got the 4-carat emerald-cut diamond ring — framed by two trapezoid diamonds and set in a platinum mounting boasting another 56 diamonds — for free by doing promotions for Bailey, Banks & Biddle.
