Vanessa Trump confirms ex Donald Trump Jr's relationship with Kimberly Guilfoyle, says she supports it
Vanessa Trump made their relationship public after she defended the couple against an 'attack' by the New York Daily News
Donald Trump Jr.'s estranged wife, Vanessa Trump, has reportedly officially confirmed that her former husband and Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle are dating.
Vanessa made their relationship public after she defended the couple against an "attack" by the New York Daily News. The 40-year-old made the revelation on Thursday afternoon on the popular micro-blogging site Twitter.
"The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don. We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives!” Vanessa tweeted.
She wrote the tweet in response to Trump Jr's tweet expressing outrage over a column in New York Daily News. The column argued that Guilfoyle should be removed from her show on Fox News because of her relationship with President Donald Trump's son, People reported.
The president's 40-year-old eldest son, in his tweet, called the column racist and pointed out that it referred to Guilfoyle being better at "picking grapes" than men, taking a dig at her Puerto Rican heritage, according to reports.
"How did this get past her editors at the @NYDailyNews? Or do they condone this kind of talk? I guess hypocrisy, sexism & racist rhetoric are alive & well there," Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.
According to Page Six, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle started dating in April — shortly after Vanessa filed for divorce — and reports state that things appear to be heating up between the couple. They have been spotted outside Guilfoyle’s N.Y.C. apartment multiple times and have been going on frequent dinner dates.
Trump Jr. and Vanessa, meanwhile, have been co-parenting their five children — Kai Madison, 10, Donald III, 9, Tristan, 6, Spencer, 5, and Chloe, 3. The former couple was reportedly reunited after their divorce in April for Easter weekend. They had traveled to Mar-a-Lago with their children on a family outing, reports state. Vanessa filed for divorce from Trump Jr. on March 15.
“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the estranged couple said in a statement at that time.
"We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time," the statement added.
