The relationship between the President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump has seen its fair share of controversy. Over the years, rumors have swirled and reports have surfaced about the complicated relationship between the President and First Lady.
Let’s take a peek into some dark and strange secrets behind the marriage of the most watched couple in the U.S., starting with how they first met.
1. Melania snubbed Donald when they first met
Melania and Donald met at a party in 1998. When the two met, Donald had already been divorced twice when he spotted Melania at a New York Fashion Week party. Melania was just 28 years old at the time.
The event organizer introduced Donald to Melania that night. But when Donald eventually asked the model for her contact information, she snubbed Donald and replied, “I am not giving you my number; you give me yours, and I will call you.”
2. Melania had a struggling modeling career until Donald came in her life
Vanity Fair says, thanks to her relationship, she had a modeling spread in British GQ. In the spread, she was handcuffed to a suitcase that Trump himself supplied.
3. Hillary Clinton was one of the attendees at their wedding
Melania Knauss married Donald Trump in 2005. Their wedding had a guest list that would make a lot of people jealous.
Hillary and Bill Clinton were at their nuptials apart from Katie Couric, Kelly Ripa, Regis Philbin, and Simon Cowell attended.
4. Donald allowed Melania to have kids — if she stayed fit
As one report suggests, the couple had a “contract” of sorts before her pregnancy with Barron. Donald wanted to ensure Melania would get her pre-baby body back, and she assured him everything would go back to the way it was.
5. Donald is happy she’s not a “not a nagging wife”.
Since this is Donald’s third marriage, he’s chosen someone who appears to be much different than Ivana and Marla. According to a media report, Melania says she’s “not a nagging wife.”
6. Donald demands constant praise
Michael D’Antonio, author of The Truth About Trump, says when he met Donald and Melania, Donald said to his wife, “Tell him I’m a really good husband.”
He repeated this to her twice before she finally told D’Antonio her husband was great, but it seemed to be dragged out of her. D’Antonio also said Melania had another wifely duty — praising Donald’s fame.
7. Donald talked crudely about Melania on air
Trump hasn’t just talked crudely about Melania on the air once, but quite a few times he uttered terribly lewd things about his wife.
As Newsweek reports, Donald said he’d groped his wife in public. He also gave details about having sex with his wife and rated other women’s bodies.
8. Melania tried to protect Donald against sexual assault claims
Many women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault since Donald’s presidency, Melania brushed it off by saying she’s forgiven Donald for any previous misconduct.
Between the sexual assault allegations and Donald’s crude speech, it seems Melania’s pretty forgiving.
9. Many thought Melania Trump had a body double
There’s a conspiracy theory that first lady Melania Trump has a body double. According to the theory, Trump has a body double who stands in for her at different times.
According to Metro.co.uk, there’s plenty of “evidence” to suggest Melania’s not anywhere near the White House, and that she’s in fact still in New York. The conspiracy theory still persists.
10. There may be some competition between Ivanka and Melania
Donald doesn’t try to hide the fact that Ivanka is the golden child, and the first daughter takes on many of the responsibilities that usually belong to the first lady.
The two media-friendly Trump women, who have given interview after interview to myriad publications over the years, rarely talk about one another. Not much is known about how the two interact together.
