Amid a report that Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa are "living separate lives," a search reveals that the couple has not been photographed together since November 30, when they attended the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the White House.
Back then the couple, who married at Mar-a-Lago in 2005 and have five children together, did not sit next to each other.
Before that, the last time they were photographed next to each other-and looking happy-was at the White House White House Easter Egg Roll on April 17, 2017.
Vanessa Trump has kept a lower profile than the other Trump siblings and their spouses. Jared Kushner has an official role in the White House and Lara Trump, Eric's wife, works with the President's reelection campaign.
It has also been a difficult few months for Vanessa. In February, she was hospitalized in New York after opening a suspicious letter addressed to her husband that contained white powder. (The substance was later determined to be cornstarch.) Donald Jr. issued a statement on Twitter saying he was "thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed."
Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning. Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.- Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 12, 2018
On Wednesday Page Six, which first reported on the couple's unconfirmed marital woes, also resurrected a cringeworthy quote Vanessa gave during a 2006 interview with the International Herald Tribune. She and her future husband met at a fashion show in 2003, when they were introduced twice by Donald Trump in the course of about five minutes. When Vanessa and Donald Jr. ran into each other at a birthday party six weeks later, Vanessa said she blurted out, you're "the one with the retarded dad!"
A spokesperson for the Trump Organization did not respond to a request for comment.
