Art of her deal: Melania updates prenup with Trump

 September 29, 2023

Former first lady Melania Trump reportedly made changes to her prenuptial agreement with former President Donald Trump.

The primary consideration behind the changes surrounds a trust fund for their son Barron.

Strategic timing

"The timing of this renegotiation is crucial. It's not just about the possibility of Trump serving a second term, but also about his ongoing legal battles," Marca reported.

"With potential payouts and mounting legal bills, this move is designed to provide a more solid future for Melania and Barron, should the couple part ways," it added.

Quietly negotiating

“Over the last year, Melania and her team have been quietly negotiating a new ‘postnup’ agreement between herself and Donald Trump," a source told Page Six.

The source further said, “This is at least the third time Melania has renegotiated the terms of her marital agreement."

Not the first time

"The updated terms, which sources say involve both finances and property, increase the trust set up for the couple’s youngest son, Barron," the Daily Beast stated.

"It’s believed to be at least the third time the couple has renegotiated their prenup," it added.

The legal changes come as Trump was found guilty of fraud in a New York case this week and could be held liable for up to $250 million. The case also seeks to force three of his adult children to testify in the upcoming Manhattan trial.

The former president also faces upcoming trials in Florida, Georgia and Washington that come as he seeks a return to the White House.

So far, the battles have not hurt his poll numbers as he declined to participate in the second GOP debate, citing his large lead over opponents.
