KEY POINTS

  • Ivana Trump and Donald Trump divorced in 1992
  • Ivana Trump previously accused the POTUS of violently assaulting her 
  • Ivanka Trump's mom felt that she was "raped emotionally" by her ex-husband 

Ivana Trump previously made shocking allegations against Donald Trump amid their messy divorce proceedings.

Years ago, the mom of three claimed that the POTUS assaulted him during one of their heated arguments. In the book “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J Trump,” author Harry Hurt III detailed the incident between the former couple.

He claimed that Trump just got home at that time following a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot when he confronted Ivana, who referred the doctor to him. The POTUS was reportedly upset over how he looked following the procedure.

After Trump violently assaulted his then-wife, Ivana ran to her room, where she locked herself until the next morning. When she returned to the master bedroom, she saw Melania Trump’s husband there.

“As she looks in horror at the ripped-out hair scattered all over the bed, he glares at her and asks with menacing casualness: ‘Does it hurt?’” Hurt III wrote.

Shortly after the book was released, the president denied that he ever laid a hand on his ex-wife. In fact, he also claimed that Hurt didn’t have any talent for writing, and he also called him unattractive.

Michael Cohen, special counsel at The Trump Organization, also took his boss’s side on the matter. He told The Daily Beast that the allegations against Trump were incorrect.

In fact, the allegations went as far as claiming that Ivana accused her then-husband of raping her. However, Cohen, later on, clarified that Ivana felt “raped emotionally.”

“She was not referring to it [as] a criminal matter, and not in its literal sense, though there are many literal senses to the word,” he said.

Cohen also said that the accusations couldn’t have been correct because it is not possible for a spouse to rape his partner because they are legally married.

Years following the incident, Trump and Ivana announced their decision to go their separate ways.
