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. Sadly, Ivana passed away in July 2022.

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

- Marla Maples (1989-1999) – According to the reports, Maples met Trump and started having an affair in 1989. Their affair got a lot of press coverage and even produced a child, Tiffany Ariana Trump, who was born on October 13, 1993. Trump got married for the second time in a lavish ceremony, which was attended by 1000 guests at the Plaza Hotel in New York in December 1993. However, Trump’s this relationship waned as well. They separated in May 1997 and got divorced in June 1999, which according to some observers was just short of time that would have given Marla bigger alimony than the $2 million she eventually got.

At the party, Donald asked for her number but as he was on another date, she didn’t give it. 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.
