Presidential daughter-in-law Vanessa Trump filed on Thursday for an uncontested divorce from husband Donald Trump Jr. in Manhattan Supreme Court.
"After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways," the couple said in a joint statement. "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."
Vanessa Trump hired New York based-criminal defense attorney David Feureisen to represent her as reports broke that special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organizations records for his investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
