Vanessa Trump, the ex-wife of Donald Trump Jr. and the mother of his five children, has largely flown under the radar compared to other members of the Trump family. After all, between President Donald Trump’s three marriages, two divorces, and the kids he has with each of his three wives, not to mention their spouses and children, keeping track of who’s who in the first family can be a pretty daunting task.
She may have started life having tea at the Plaza and graduated to Chanel Fashion shows before she hit her late teens. But in her role as a political daughter, Ivanka Trump has refined her style — and reportedly working with a celebrity stylist to polish her look. See here some of her fashion moments over the years.
The divorce might not be as “uncontested” as it seemed at first, though. On April 27, a “defendant’s demand for statement of net worth” was filed on Donald Trump Jr.’s behalf in Manhattan Supreme Court. And yesterday, a potential reason for Trump’s demand to know how much his wife has in the bank was revealed.
Page Six reported that before his death in February 2005, Vanessa’s father, Charles Haydon, had invested as much as $1 million in Rao’s Speciality Foods, the pasta-sauce venture launched by the legendary Italian restaurant in Harlem. Haydon, the Post says, controlled 30 percent of the company, so when it was sold in 2017 for around $415 million, his heirs—including Vanessa—reportedly received a hefty windfall.
