Vanessa Trump files for Divorce from Donald Trump's Son, Donald Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr. and wife headed for divorce friends say

"After 12 years of marriage, we have chose to go our separate ways", Donald Jr. and the former model, both 40, said in a statement to Us Weekly.

As reported by Page Six, Vanessa Trump filed for an uncontested divorce from the President's eldest son, meaning there is not likely to be a legal battle for full custody of the couple's five children or their assets. "But we will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families", she said. We ask for your privacy during this time.

Donald Trump Jr. sought comfort in his daughter after the very public split with his wife. Vanessa Trump, nee Haydon, married Donald Jr in November 2005.

The couple who was said to be resolving issues that led to a temporary separation in 2016 finally gave up and reportedly filed for divorce, citing unsolvable issues as the reason for their decision.

Having played a significant role in his father's presidential election campaign, Trump Jr. and his younger brother Eric took over the running of the Trump Organization.

"Don Jr. has been busy traveling, which has contributed to their problems. Vanessa is a devoted mother, but she is increasingly lonely and alone in the house with the children", a source told Page Six.

The divorce filing comes as Trump Jr. has emerged as a central figure in at least one focus point of the special counsel's investigation into Trump ties to Russia: A June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower involving a Russian lawyer and top campaign aides that, according to Trump Jr.'s emails, he accepted after being promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival. The substance turned out to be cornstarch, but Vanessa had been hospitalized at the time as a precaution (via Time).
