JUDAS IN HIGH HEELS? Don Jr and Eric Trump feel Ivanka 'betrayed' the family leading up to indictment
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Ivanka Trump's brothers have reportedly distanced themselves from her after she "betrayed" the family in the months leading up to their father Donald Trump's arrest. Insiders alleged that Donald Jr, 45, and Eric, 39, are on the outs with their sister since she swore off the former president's 2024 campaign.
Trump, 76, was arrested and charged with 34 Class E felony counts of falsifying business documents by reportedly misclassifying payments to his attorney, Michael Cohen, as legal fees when they were allegedly hush-money bills. The former president entered a not-guilty plea to the criminal charges after an inquiry into the alleged payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels after an alleged affair.

Ivanka Trump knows she 'can't help' dad Donald, misses her old life in New York, sources claim
'She's begun to have regrets'
As mentioned, sources have now claimed that Trump's sons are treating Ivanka like a "pariah" after she decided to step back from their father's 2024 presidential campaign. "The result is Ivanka has been declared persona non grata by all the other Trumps," an insider squealed to Radar Online. "And she's begun to have regrets. She didn't sign up to be a pariah in her own family!" Don Jr and Eric apparently felt their sister crossed the line when she and her husband Jared Kushner voluntarily testified before the January 6 congressional committee
Ivanka's testimony considered a 'betrayal'
"Donald was furious with Ivanka," the source continued, adding that "Donnie and Eric considered her testimony a betrayal." The insider added, "They believe she and Jared have chosen sides — and it ain't with them. It's with all their glittery, gala-going friends who don't happen to like Donald all that much."
MEAWW previously reported how Ivanka's marriage to Jared was "falling apart" amid the family rift. "It's all falling apart," an insider told Radar Online, referring to the couple's "toxic" marriage. "They're always fighting and can barely contain their growing animosity for each other even when they appear in public," the source added.
Insiders alleged that things went downhill for the couple after Trump lost the 2020 presidential election, leading to the January 6 Capitol Hill riots. "Jared recognized Donald had become radioactive, and he pushed Ivanka to abandon her father for the sake of their own reputations and the future of their children," a friend of the family told the outlet. "They still have grand ambitions and consider themselves card-carrying power brokers. But Jared knew if Ivanka continued to stand by her dad, all of his big business connections would go out the window," the source added.
Jared giving his wife the cold shoulder
Meanwhile, Jared is also said to be giving his wife the cold shoulder as she struggles to "choose her own family over her estranged blood relatives," per Radar Online. "Jared is riding high now with the success of his new investment firm, which scored a $2 billion windfall from the Saudis," the insider continued. "He doesn't want to hear Ivanka second-guessing herself over siding with him instead of her family. From his point of view, Donald brought all of these problems upon himself. Jared believes he and Ivanka did the best thing for their own family by turning their backs on his father-in-law," the source further alleged.
Regardless, it seems Ivanka ultimately decided to stand by her father in his time of need against her husband's alleged wishes. She visited Trump at Mar-a-Lago to spend time with him just days before he flew to New York City for his controversial arraignment.
