Marla Maples did not know how to handle Donald Trump.

According to reports, Ivana Trump’s marriage with the president hit rock bottom when he started an affair with the model. After Ivana and Donald’s divorce, the POTUS went on to marry Maples, but their marriage was also short-lived because she could not handle him.

“It’s a sad story. She really didn’t know how to handle him,” a source told Vanity Fair in 2019.

The president created an “ironclad” prenup agreement before he married Maples. She was reportedly planning to renegotiate a better deal after five years of marriage, but they separated after only four years and their divorce was “messy.”

It was triggered by a report in may 1996 claiming that Maples cheated on her then-husband. National Enquirer published an article with a headline that read, “Shock for Trump! MARLA CAUGHT WITH HUNK.” The report alleged that the Palm Beach police caught Maples during a “frolic” on the beach at 4 a.m. with a Trump bodyguard.

Both Maples and Donald denied the report, but the POTUS reportedly went “nuclear” over the article. The source said that Donald didn’t want to divorce Maples right away because it would make him look like he had been cheated on, so he took his time.

Donald and Maples separated the following year. Maples moved to California and raised their daughter Tiffany. Following their divorce, the POTUS’ second wife made a shocking statement about him.

“Donald was never the man I wanted to marry,” she told The Telegraph. “He and his world were alien to me. I’m so happy to be away from Donald, and I’m just trying to move as far away as I can.”

In an interview with Access, Maples explained why they parted ways. According to her, they were very different and things could get a little combative between them. Just like other married couples, they wanted to bring out the best in each other but after many years, they realized that they couldn’t make it work.

In the same interview, Maples revealed what she found in Donald that made her fall for him. She said that there was an instant connection between them like they had already known each other. She added that she saw Donald’s vulnerability and that made him more interesting.
