Ivana Trump dies at 73

Ivana Trump – the first of Donald Trump’s three wives and the mother of Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric – died at 73 in New York City today. Paramedics found her in her Upper East Side apartment after “responding to a call for cardiac arrest”, according to ABC News.

From Bloomberg:

The Trumps were a power couple in New York in the 1980s before their equally public and messy divorce after Donald Trump met his next wife, Marla Maples. But in recent years, Ivana Trump was on good terms with her former husband. She wrote in a 2017 book they talked about once a week. …

She was born Ivana Zelnickova in 1949 in the Czechoslovak town of Gottwaldov, the former town of Zlin which had just been renamed by the Communists, who took control of the country in 1948. She married Trump, her second husband, in 1977.
