She even served as the Vice President of Interior Design for the Trump organization. However, things started turning sour in 1990, when news of Trump’s affair with Marla Maples, the former beauty queen from Georgia was splashed across major tabloids. She filed for divorce in 1991 and eventually reached out of the court settlement with Trump in 1992. Even after the divorce settlement, they sued each other over alimony.

- Gabriela Sabatini (1989) – The real estate mogul had a steamy fling with the Argentine tennis star Gabriela Sabatini in 1989.

At the party, Donald asked for her number but as he was with another date, she didn’t give. Instead, she asked for his number to check how serious he was. According to her logic, if he gave his business number, he was just fooling around. But, he gave her all his numbers and she called him after returning from a modeling photoshoot in the Caribbean. In April 2004, they got engaged and Trump walked down the aisle for the third time on January 22, 2005, at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church.
