She was married to Donald Trump for 15 years before he moved on with a younger woman.

And now Ivana Trump has revealed that she feels ‘bad’ for his new wife Melania, after recent allegations of infidelity came out about the President.

“I feel bad for [Melania] because I know how bad I did feel,” Ivana told Mercury Press.

“It hurts a lot.”

Ivana and Donald had three children together – Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric – during their 15-year marriage, which lasted from 1977 until they divorced in 1992.

Donald and Ivana famously divorced after he found love with Marla Marples, who he went on to have his daughter Tiffany with.

Ivana wrote in her book called ‘Raising Trump’ about a day in 1989 where she came face-to-face with Marla.

“This young blonde woman approached me out of the blue and said ‘I’m Marla and I love your husband. Do you?'” Ivana wrote in the book.

Melania’s private punishment for Trump

“I said ‘Get lost. I love my husband.’ It was unladylike but I was in shock.”

She also revealed that neither her nor her three children spoke to Donald for one whole year after he was caught with Marla.

Meanwhile, Melania is said to be silently seething about her husband’s alleged affairs with porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

“Melania and Donald really don’t fight – at least, not like other married couple,” a source told Hollywood Life.

“If Melania is angry or upset about something she tends to internalise it, and she will just be icy silent towards whoever she’s at odds with.”
