Relationship expert speculates on whether mugshot could prompt Melania Trump to seek divorce

 September 2, 2023

Former President Donald Trump reported to Atlanta's Fulton County Jail last month where he posed for his now infamous mugshot.

While Trump has openly embraced the picture, some sources say that it may be the last straw for his wife.  

Relationship expect sees potential for divorce

The Mirror noted in an article published this past Wednesday that former First Lady Melania Trump has kept a conspicuously low profile since her husband left office, leading some to speculate about a possible divorce.

Relationship expert and So Syncd co-founder Louella Alderson was quoted as stating, "It is difficult to say whether or not Melania Trump will decide to divorce Donald Trump, as it is a very personal decision."

"However, it appears the couple don't spend much time with each other and there have been numerous reports that paint them as having a strained relationship," she continued.

Alderson said "it may not be surprising if Trump's arrest was the last straw" but added that the couple having "already gotten through so much could mean that they decide to stay together and work through their issues."

Source claims former first lady is focused on her family

A recent article, People magazine contributor Linda Marx cited a source said to be in Mrs. Trump's social circle who said the former first lady's absence from public life actually stems from a renewed focus on her family.

The source said she "is good at taking care of business at hand which includes her own life, the life of her son, and the lives of her close family members."

"She would not stand in a circle of people she knows and openly comment on the lawsuits or the mug shot," the source continued, adding, "She will have her way of dealing with this and anything else publicly when she feels like it."

Yet the sources also also stressed how Mrs. Trump accepts the fact that a certain amount of scrutiny is an unavoidable part of life with her husband.

"She also knows he loves to be the center of attention whether the subject is good or bad. He has been this way since the day she met him," the source stressed.

Trump says he has his wife's support

For his part, the former president told Fox News host Bret Baier during an interview in June that he has his wife's backing.

"You go ahead and you do whatever you want to do because I'm with you 100%," Trump quoted the former first lady as saying.

Breitbart quoted him as voicing a similar message to former advisor Roger Stone, saying his wife has "a tremendous heart but she takes things for what they are and she’s just a very confident person."
