Ivana Trump separates from boytoy husband

Ivana Trump’s marriage to fourth husband Rossano Rubicondi is – not surprisingly – over. The pair dated for six years before getting married in April, so you’d think they’d know what they were getting into. Though they each called 911 on the other after a big fight three weeks before the wedding, with Ivana calling Rossano “abusive.” So it doesn’t sound like they had the most solid foundation.

Ivana Trump has separated from her fourth husband, Rossano Rubicondi, the Associated Press reports.

Trump, 59, issued a statement announcing her split from her 36-year-old Italian entrepreneur husband, whom she married in April.

According to her statement, Trump filed for legal separation three months ago but never went public because she did not want it to interfere with Rubicondi’s participation on the Italian edition of Survivor.

“Rossano wants to live in Miami and work in Milan,” Trump says. “But, I am a New Yorker and my family, friends and businesses are here. As the beautiful song says, `Que sera sera!’”

Just last week Ivana denied that there were any problems in her marriage, even though she’d already filed for separation.

Rumors that Ivana Trump’s marriage to Rossano Rubicondi is on the rocks are “totally false,” according to the Czech beauty herself. “My husband is in Honduras right now filming the Italian version of ‘Survivor,’” she told us at a Cinema Society party. “Everything’s good! He actually lost 20 pounds while down there, so he’s looking hot. Heeeello!”

It sounds like Ivana’s taking a pretty light tone to all this. The wedding was a lavish affair in traditional Trump style. They were married at Ivana’s ex-husband Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago Palm Beach estate in front of five hundred guests. I’m imagining there were a lot of gold-paneled walls and other tacky Trump adornments.

Though Trump is citing Rossano’s desire to live in Miami as the reason for the divorce, it’s hard to ignore the possibility that their 23 year age difference was a contributing factor. Obviously they had something that kept them together for six years, but whatever it was, it seems to have flown out the window well before they walked down the aisle.

    When she married this guy it was so obvious it wouldn’t last. I can’t believe she was that stupid. She may have a good head for business but when it comes to picking marriage partners, she appears to be clueless.

  2. devilgirl says:

    411- if you are calling 911 days before your wedding on your fiance, chances are it isn’t a solid union.

  3. audrey says:

    those pants he’s wearing – are those sequins? oh, mine eyes!

  4. Christina says:

    so are we calling him a boytoy husband cuz he’s younger? cuz that’s sexist…

    he’s hot though so good for her…

    on a sidenote… i can usually tell jaybird’s posts way before i read the signature… they’re overly judgemental and negative… over 6 years isn’t that bad in celebrityland :)

  5. boomchakaboom says:

    Oh yeah, baby. This one was doomed from the start. 911 just prior to the wedding? Red flag anyone?

  6. jess says:

  7. judy says:

    He was all over an Italian “showgirl” called Belen Rodriguez during ‘L’isola dei famosi’. I think she’s left her partner too.

    Again, they all have these huge weddings, and forget that it is not the marriage. I think everyone should be required to have a small ceremony to get married, and on your 5th or 10th anniversary you can have the big party to celebrate. Too many divorces before the 5 year mark. Marriage is HARD WORK.

    Good Gawd. Look at the close-up.

    What are these women doing to their faces?

  11. Tina says:

    I completely agree with Debra.

    Tess: I don’t know, but they’re starting to look like zombies from a low-budget horror film. How can they possibly think they look better like that than if they aged naturally? Too many pills, I guess.
