Melania Trump ‘didn’t have a budget’ in White House says expert
The former First Lady posed with a fan at the Mar-o-Lago in West Palm Beach, Florida. Melania and Donald Trump moved to the county club in January after their departure from the White House.
Mrs Trump looked relaxed and happy as she posed for the photographs.
It comes as relationship experts have speculated that Melania and Donald could possibly live “very separate lives in the near future” as divorce rumours continued to mount.
Pascale Lane, a Therapeutic Relationship and Life Coach, told the Daily Star: “The marriage of Donald and Melania Trump is one which has been widely documented over the years and has been the source of many debates.
“Ever since his inauguration back in January 2017, speculation has been rife about the state of their marriage and whether this is one of business or love.
“Melania certainly has had her fair share of unhappy looking pictures.”
The relationship expert predicted the couple are unlikely to get a divorce.
She said: “My guess would be that divorcing a man like Donald Trump would leave Melania without the opulent lifestyle she is accustomed to.
“Let’s not forget that she married this man in 2005; their history goes considerably further back than his presidency.
“There could well be an opportunity now for her to say she has ‘done her bit’ but I suspect Melania is one lady who does her own thing in her own way, regardless of the status of her husband.
“I would presume they have led separate lives for many years now.
“Maybe the question we should be asking is ‘Will they legally separate or maintain the status quo as it is?'”
Emma Davey, relationship expert and Founder of MyTraumaTherapy.co.uk, told the Daily Star that Melania may want to “start living the life she wants”.
She said: “While no one knows what’s gone on in their relationship, other than the couple, the time may have come for Melania to take back control and start living the life she wants.
“We might start to see the pair living very separate lives in the near future.”
Melania has previously said she has “a great relationship” with Donald and he has insisted that they never argue.
In November last year, Melania’s former Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham blasted the divorce rumours as “pathetic”.
When asked to comment on the divorce speculation, Ms Grisham said: “This question is pathetic and exactly why people no longer trust the mainstream media. No legitimate journalist would ask this.”
Mrs Trump recently blasted the “media’s unhealthy obsession” with her after a CNN report claimed the former First Lady has been spending much of her post-White House time in day spas.
The Office of Melania Trump tweeted in response to the report: “Mrs Trump is no longer First Lady. She is a private citizen, mother, & wife.
“Sources in this article are not affiliated [with] her nor have insight into her thoughts or daily life.
