Ivana Trump has been found dead in her New York apartment. The news has been confirmed by NBC, which has pointed to a cardiorespiratory arrest as the cause of death. The former first wife of Donald Trump was 73 years old, and was very close to her family.
She was the mother of Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, the three eldest children of former President Donald Trump, with whom she recognized that they had formed a great family that was above their differences as a couple. They married in 1977 and divorced in 1992.
"I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!" (Donald Trump, Truth Social)
Ivana Trump: successful model and entrepreneur
Ivana Trump was born in Czechoslovakia in 1949, and from a very young age she stood out for being an excellent skier. Her beauty led her to become a runway model, but it was after her marriage to Donald Trump that she became internationally known.
She held important positions in the Trump Organization and played a crucial role in the development of the foundation of the Trump Entertainment Resort. After her divorce, she proved to be a successful businesswoman, who carried out different initiatives within the world of fashion, perfumes and accessories (jewelry). Subsequently, she also dedicated herself to writing, standing out in the genre of self-help and self-improvement books.
After her divorce with Donald Trump, she married two more times. The first with businessman Riccardo Mazzucchelli (whose marriage lasted less than two years) and the second with Rossano Rubicondi, an actor much younger than her (they were more than 20 years apart).
