Trump’s Ex-Wife Ivana Died From Blunt Impact Injuries

Ivana Trump, former US President Donald Trump’s first wife, has died aged 74 in New York City.

On Friday, New York’s City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said the Czech-American businesswoman died on Tuesday, July 14, 2022, after suffering blunt impact injuries to her torso.

The examiner revealed her death to be accidental, saying her death’s circumstances were consistent with a fall on the stairs. It was not suspicious, the official said.

“Having released this determination, OCME will not comment further on the investigation,” a spokesperson for the office added.

According to official reports, the New York Fire Department responded to a call from Ivana’s Manhattan residence and found her dead. A senior city official said the businesswoman’s body was lying down on the apartment’s spiral staircase when authorities arrived.

Ivana, a former model and ski racer, was born in Czechoslovakia. She married Trump, a real estate mogul back then, in 1977.

Ivana contributed greatly to the Trump empire, serving as vice president of interior design for the Trump Organization. She was also CEO and president of Trump’s Castle casino resort and manager of Plaza Hotel.

She and the US politician also worked together on the Trump Tower on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort’s construction, and the Grand Hyatt Hotel’s renovation.

The couple, who share three children – Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Erick – had a controversial divorce in 1990, reportedly sparked by Trump’s affair with Marla Maples.

After news of her death broke, Trump said he would postpone a Saturday rally in Arizona to support Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.

Donald Jr. and Ivanka were due to depose the following week for an investigation into how the Trump Organization has stated several estate assets’ value after some parties accused the firm of manipulating valuations, taxes and loan terms for its own benefit.

However, the New York State Attorney General’s Office agreed to their lawyers’ request to postpone the depositions.

“This is a temporary delay, and the depositions will be rescheduled as soon as possible. There is no other information about dates or otherwise to provide at this time. We offer our condolences to the Trump family,” a spokesperson for Attorney General Letitia James said.

After her divorce from Trump, Ivana married Riccardo Mazzucchelli and Rossano Rubicondi, who passed away on October 29 last year.
