“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple said in a joint statement, according to The New York Times. “We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

Trump Jr. usually keeps a low profile when he travels to Palm Beach, but in December, he was seen working out at a local CrossFit gym. He was in town for a speaking engagement with conservative students in West Palm Beach. 

A longtime CrossFit athlete, Trump Jr. dropped in for a workout at CrossFit El Cid on Claremore Drive.

In February, Vanessa Trump was hospitalized after opening an envelope that contained a white powder

The powder, which brought back fears of the 2001 anthrax attacks, turned out to be harmless.

Trump Jr. later sent a tweet saying his wife was not harmed.
