Us Weekly reports that “multiple sources” claim the first lady refuses to share a bed with her husband, even on the rare occasions when they’re in the same city together.
“They have separate bedrooms,” one tipster says. “They never spend the night together–ever.”
Another source alleges that the couples does, in fact, sleep in the same room, but they keep separate beds. Kind of like Bert and Ernie.
“It’s very ‘royal’ of them,” the source jokes.
A third “family source” alleges Melania “does not keep hidden from everyone around her how miserable she is” and “wants as little to do with Donald as possible.”
“She is not interested in Donald, the presidency, or anything involving him.”
Of course, a rep for Melania says the claims are #fakenews, telling Us Weekly, “It’s unfortunate that you are going to feature unnamed ‘sources’ that have provided fictional accounts.”
However, there are elements to the rumors that kinda sorta check out.
Since becoming America’s new First Lady two months ago, Melania has spent 99% of her time holed up in her penthouse palace at the top of Trump Tower in New York City, 200 miles away from her husband.
Immediately after the inauguration, she jetted back to Manhattan and didn’t step in the nation’s capital again for another three weeks.
To date, she’s made a total of one very brief charitable appearance to the children’s hospital in New York and, let’s just say, it didn’t go over so well.
Oh, then there was the time she met with Akie Abe, the Japanese prime minister’s wife, in Palm Beach, but, a source tells Us, that was “only because she was going to be at Mar-a-Lago already.”
