Marla Maples and Donald Trump

This caused turmoil between Donald and Ivana’s married life, and eventually, they split. This turned the media against Maples as they bashed her for being the one behind their separation. In an interview with People, she stated that all of that was awful. Furthermore, she also mentioned that she had to escape with the Peace Corps to Guatemala to avoid the media.

In addition to this, the press followed not only her but also her family. She wanted to make things right with Ivana, but then there was just so much heat that she could not handle it. Finally, she was able to get this heat off of her when Ivana got millions of dollars for her divorce from Trump. Many people might think that he married Maples right after his divorce, but things were not like that. The two of them had an on-again-off-again relationship.

However, Donald and Marla’s marriage was not that happy either. They had a prenup agreement before their wedding. He learned from his previous divorce from Ivana that divorces could be costly.

In addition to this, he offered to give her another million for buying a house and an additional $100,000 as child support.

Finally, their wedding took place under a grand setting at the Plaza Hotel in 1993. There were over a thousand guests, and a generous number of political personalities were also present. Following their marriage, Marla said that Donald was the best “sex” she’s ever had as they welcomed a daughter together, and her name is Tiffany Trump. However, happiness was hard to find for Marla as Donald’s daughter Ivanka had a hard time with her new mom. She did not even attend the wedding and had a tension-filled relationship. Ivanka also stated that she was not close to her stepmother, but she does care about her half-sister Tiffany.

Divorce in 1997

Sadly, things took an unfortunate turn in their relationship in 1996. Trump found his wife Marla hanging out with his bodyguard on a deserted beach around 4 in the morning. He confronted them, and while both of them denied their affair, the bodyguard himself conflicted his stories. This resulted in Marla and Trump’s wedding ending up as a divorce in 1997. However, the final process of their divorce took place in 1999, and according to their marriage deal, Marla has to keep the details confidential. She then moved to California with Tiffany, where she raised her as a single mother.
