Who is Dorothy Curry? Donald Trump trolled after ex-wife Ivana gifts former nanny $1M condo
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: When Donald Trump's ex-wife Ivana Trump died on July 15, 2022, she left behind $34 million in assets, according to previously unseen probate filings. Ivana's estimated net worth at the time of her death was $100 million, based on data from Celebrity Net Worth.
Her will stipulated that the majority of her estate be divided among her three children, Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric Trump. However, there was also another surprising inclusion- she also handed her former nanny, Dorothy Curry, a $1 million Florida condo, while Donald Trump, Ivana's wealthy ex-husband, received nothing.
Who is Dorothy Curry?
The biggest benefactor outside the immediate family is Curry, the children's former nanny who later worked as Ivana Trump's assistant, according to a Forbes analysis of estate papers. According to Internet real estate agencies, Curry will own the Florida property, which is valued at more than $1 million, although her address in the estate papers is a middle-class residence in Queens. The will also provides for Curry to inherit Tiger Trump, Ivana's Yorkshire terrier.
Curry, who is from Belturbet, Co Cavan, has worked for the millionaire and his ex-wife Ivana for nearly 30 years. Ivana's generosity shows that Curry has indeed become a member of the Trump family over the years. Eric even referred to Curry as his second mother in his mother's book and recalled the time he spent in her native Ireland. He also spoke of his great love for her. In addition, the tycoon's children visited Ireland several times as teenagers and still speak fondly of Dorothy.
During a tour here in 2014, Donald Trump Jr said, "There's not a straight lineage tie but in our hearts there certainly is. He added, "The woman who raised us was Irish. Dorothy Curry from Co Cavan. We spent a lot of time here growing up and she’s an amazing woman.” Eric told how she still works for their mother, adding: “When she stopped raising us and we were out of the house, she continued on and has worked in our family for over 30 years. We heard more about Ireland than any other country growing up," as reported by The Mirror.
What does Ivana Trump's will say?
The most important property in Ivana's estate is a townhouse in New York City, located just half a block from Central Park. It was listed by her heirs in November with an asking price of $26.5 million and is currently for sale. It is uncertain whether they will receive that much. Regardless of the ultimate sale price, Don Jr, Ivanka and Eric will each receive an equal share of the money, according to their mother's will. Eric is responsible for administering the estate and liquidating it after his mother appointed him her personal agent. If he is unable to perform the duties, the burden will be transferred to Ivanka's accountant, according to the will.
There are also some foreign properties in the settlement. Ivana planned to leave a house in St Tropez, France, to her ex-husband Rossano Rubiconi. However, this bequest expired after Rubiconi's death, apparently in 2021. Evelyne Galet, a friend of Ivana, received another property in St Tropez from her. It is unclear how Ivana knew Galet or who she is, and representatives of the Trump Organization did not respond to a list of inquiries.
Ivana also left some money for charity. She suggested that the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross receive all her clothing. With one exception, she stipulated that her furs be sold and the proceeds distributed to her three children. Strikingly, former President Trump is not to be found among these names. However, according to media reports and photographs, Ivana is buried at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
'Payback from beyond the grave!'
Trolls on the Internet took the opportunity to mock the former POTUS for his ex-wife's decision to leave the condo to her nanny than to him. One commented, "Payback from beyond the grave! Ha Ha Ivana Trump left $1M in her will to the nanny who raised raised Ivanka, Eric & Trump Jr & gave Trump NOTHING." Another added, "Read "Ivana Trump gifted former nanny $1m condo in her will, while Donald gets nothing' on SmartNews:I can’t imagine the will said she wanted to be buried on his golf course. Especially since she left him nothing. https://l.smartnews.com/zp1bh/LNe590." A third chimed in, "Why the fuck should she gift her ex husband anything??? Who does that." "Bet Trump is pissed," said a fourth.
