Melania Trump recently & successfully renegotiated her postnup yet again

In 2017, Melania Trump flatly refused to move to Washington DC after her husband “won” the election. She didn’t want to move into the White House, and she used the excuse of not wanting to remove Barron from his school in New York. We learned, later on, that Melania was actually holding off on the move until she successfully renegotiated her prenup/postnup. Once her husband signed off on more money for her and Barron, she finally agreed to move into the White House. Now, years later, Melania has once again used her leverage to renegotiate the postnup. That leverage? Her unhinged husband will likely be in prison within a year.

Sources tell Page Six that Melania Trump has “quietly” renegotiated her prenuptial agreement with Donald Trump in advance of his potentially serving a second term in the White House. An insider told us of the agreement between the couple who married in 2005, “Over the last year, Melania and her team have been quietly negotiating a new ‘postnup’ agreement between herself and Donald Trump.”

The source further said, “This is at least the third time Melania has renegotiated the terms of her martial agreement,” but the source added that it’s not because the former first lady is going anywhere. “Melania is most concerned about maintaining and increasing a substantial trust for their son, Barron,” 17, the same source familiar with Melania, 53, told Page Six. The new agreement also provides for Melania, and spans money and property, according to the source.

A different source told us of the new agreement, “I know that she wanted it to provide her with more money, and also — from what I understand — there’s a specific amount at minimum that Barron is supposed to obtain.”

The first source said that the timing of the updated agreement wasn’t only because Trump, 77, could potentially serve another term, but because of his recent legal battles as well. Said the insider, “This agreement was necessary because of the current legal battles… [Donald] has suffered” — including potential payouts in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ sprawling, $250 million civil case against Trump and his real estate business, as well as his order to pay $5 million to E. Jean Carroll for defaming her. Said our source, “Trump remains very rich, but with mounting legal bills and judgements,” the renegotiated prenup would “provide a more solid future” for Melania and their son should the couple split.

“It’s not that she threatened to leave him,” the source cautioned. “It’s definitely the underlying idea.”

[From Page Six]

Personally, I don’t think Melania will leave at this point, especially not when she’s so close to becoming his widow. While Page Six doesn’t say this, I would also assume that some of these postnup clauses involve changes to his will to ensure that she and Barron get a huge chunk of everything. It also wouldn’t surprise me if Melania ends up with a huge amount of control if her husband goes to prison or he dies soon. Think about how Ivanka is in the wind, how Eric is basically too stupid to do anything and Don Jr has what looks like a raging drug problem. And Tiffany WHO? Who else is gonna be in charge? That’s the argument Melania’s lawyers are making.

    I hate these people. She, her parents, and the anchor baby should have their citizenships revoked and be sent back to Moscow.

    But back to the topic at hand, he’s a grifter and everything he has is stolen or it’s value has been inflated. Can someone clue me in as to how she’s going to get anything if his assets are subjected to current and future judgments? Any lawyers out there?

    • Mireille says:

      Technically she and her brood are from Slovenia, but I like your idea about Moscow. Send her ass to Putin.

      • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

        Yep. And Putin is looking for conscripts so Barron would fit that bill. LOL

      • Amayson1977 says:

        Come on. Barron is a child. He’s not responsible for anything these people have done, and he certainly doesn’t deserve to be conscripted into Putin’s mercenary army.

        I loathe TFG and his terrible wife, but the boy should be off limits. He’s not responsible for who his (admittedly awful) parents and what they do.

      • Nicki says:

        She was always a Soviet mole lol

    • BeanieBean says:

      I’m curious about that, too. He was recently found guilty of fraud in that civil suit & twice found guilty of defaming E. Jean Carroll, and has to pay up for both. Then there’s the 19? felony indictments hanging over his head & while I don’t think he’ll see the inside of a jail there may be something along the line of house arrest & passport-revocation, so what is Melania fighting for? Where’s the money? Isn’t it all a house of cards anyway? That’s certainly what the fraud case was all about, grossly overstating the worth of his NYC buildings, some of which he’s going to lose possession of.

      • NotSoSocialB says:

        Four indictments and 91 charges- let’s enjoy it all- schadenfreude for all!

      • Megan says:

        They are hiding assets from receivership. In order to get $250 million in fines, the NY AG is going to need to seize physical property and assets. They are changing the names on the deeds and “gifting” valuable items. My guess is a lot of stuff is going into an irrevocable trust for Barron.

    • Rae says:

      Shitting on kids for what their parents do is pretty messed up, friendo.

      • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

        Malaria illegally got a genius visa, had the anchor baby in order to stay here, got her parents’ green cards expeditiously processed and yet I’m supposed to say poor poor Barren. And he’s no kid so miss me with that ish.

      • Kali says:

        Moira’s Rose’s Garden, Yikes.

      • Theresa says:

        Rae I agree Barron should be off limits. He is still a child and has done nothing to be brought into this fray. The other kids however…they were in the thick of things…leave Barron alone.

      • Ama1977 says:

        Agree 100%. I have a kid just about Barron’s age, and he’s very, very much a kid. Talk sh!t about adults all you like, but leave minors out of it.

        Some of the posters on this site are positively unhinged.

      • Renae says:

        I’m with Moiras Rose Garden.
        Barren is not a child….A minor, yes;child,no.
        As for the squinted side of bacon….good luck to her for getting anything more than a pittance. Donnie and Eric (Ivanka too) will fight so long and tie it up so long she will be on her fifth ‘kidney’ thing.

      • Lily says:

        Even if Baron is an adult now, and he is only what eighteen or nineteen, not very old, Baron is not responsible for what his parents do any more than you or I. I can advise my parents, with or without their solicitation, but my parents are adults and are free to ignore me. As for Baron barely being an adult, Trump isn’t going to listen to an eighteen or nineteen year old, even if he really should.

      • Maida says:

        It’s ridiculous and cruel to blame Barron for what his parents have done. He had no choice about being born into that family.

    • snappyfish says:

      When Melania refused to move to DC & she was renegotiating her pre-nup, the story was told at a cocktail party that Trump actually put money in her name. Once that was completed she moved to DC. She never lived at the WH, she, Barron & her parents lived in Potomac MD near his school. She would go down to the WH when she was needed. I am guessing this is what happened again. That she made him put money either into her hands or into a trust in Barron’s name. She is smart enough to know that the money needs to be in her name or that of her son’s before he dies. His will be litigated for years to come & the kids all loathe her & the feeling is mutual. He will owe millions once all his cases are adjudicated & she knows there isn’t that much to go around. I abhor all of these people but at some level it’s kind of Funny that she is grifting a grifter

    • bisynaptic says:

      Barron is an innocent child.

      • MelodyM says:

        As far as I’m concerned, Barron is still a clean slate. I’m willing to give him a pass until we see which way the wind is going to blow with him.

  2. ML says:

    Question: Can Trump sign over his assets so that he’s legally less liable?

    • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

      I wondered that too. In most instances when moneys are gifted or property transferred there’s a lookback period, but we know the rules don’t apply to these things.

      • ML says:

        Ugh, I despise all of them, too. The only one who deserves his citizenship is the anchor baby—the rest should have theirs revoked, because they definitely didn’t get theirs the normal way. At the least someone should look into it and publish what went on there.
        She’s apparently (I just reread that excerpt) renegotiated her prenup for the THIRD time?! This time to make sure Barron is treated like the others—maybe she’s transferred what she gets to her son? Whatever is going on here, it has to be to screw America over, because this family is all about the grift.

      • Lily says:

        At least Baron’s mother is looking out for him.

    • Visa Diva says:

      I’m not an attorney, but could there be some sort of trust set up where Melania and/or Barron are the beneficiaries?

      • bettyrose says:

        Theoretically, if Melania were stripped of citizenship and sent to Guantamo as a Russian spy, would Barron be able to live on his own? Is he high functioning enough? I doubt his siblings would care for him, so I genuinely wonder unless he really does end up wealthy enough to pay trusted attendants.

    • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

      @ML In that book that was written about her “The Art of Her Deal” (didn’t read it only the reporting on it, the writer stated that Malaria wanted Barron “to be treated as more of an equal to Trump’s oldest three children”—Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric—with regard to inheritance.”

      Guess she knows there’s no way Barron could find a billionaire like Tiffany did.

      • ML says:

        Well, Trump’s government is set up to help old, conservative white men. So if that’s not Barron’s type, yeah, he’s going to have difficulty marrying a billionaire. Definitely.

    • Cessily says:

      I had the same question and from what I looked up it won’t hold since he has been federally indicted and legally owes settlements in cases he lost (the rape civil case and the fraud case in nyc). She would be lucky to get anything since she was still married and remains that way.

      • Renae says:

        I know the ‘look back to claw back’ in federal cases is six years.
        Might be more since his criming went on so long but 6 yrs is the standard.

    • Nievie says:

      guaranteed he’s got trusts and offshore affairs in all the islands under various names…even if the US takes him to the cleaners, the Trump swarm will be well provided for.

  3. equality says:

    I wouldn’t wait for his will to get anything. Hopefully, by the time his will is probated, all the people he has abused and defrauded will have the majority of his assets. Distancing from Don is the smartest thing Ivanka has ever done. I’m wondering if maybe she and hubby are going to be witnesses against him.

    • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

      Wonder if they’re negotiating a deal to keep Jared from being charged for taking all that Saudi money.

      • Truthiness says:

        There is no way Jared/Ivanka are getting immunity about the $2B in Saudi money, plus it has nothing to do with Trump Org in the state of NY.

        The Saudi deal would need to be handled in DC, not state court in NY.

    • Jaded says:

      Ivanka is going to be a witness in the $250 million NY fraud trial along with her brothers Dumb and Dumber. An investigation is already underway by the House Committee into Kushner’s clearly ethical violations with the Saudis, United Arab Emirates and Qatar. I want to see that entire effing family brought down.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Me, too, @Jaded, me too.

      • antipodean says:

        Me three! It alarms me the level of white hot fury these grotesques inspire in me. It can’t be healthy. The sooner they are footnotes in history the better I will feel.

      • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

        Co-sigining everyone’s comment.

        These are the same people who love to talk about the founding fathers and how everything was better back then etc. So how did the founding fathers punish traitors? 🤔

      • Trillion says:

        @Moira’s Rose’s Garden: BOOM

  4. Brassy Rebel says:

    I don’t believe that Trump “remains very rich”. I don’t believe he was ever as rich as advertised, and some of the revelations in recent years confirm that. And he’s going to continue to lose wealth because of the multimillion dollar judgments against him. My condolences to Barron. He better prepare to support himself because Daddy won’t/can’t.

    • Tulipworthy says:

      Agree 100%. I don’t think he is wealthy.

    • Lau says:

      Exactly, who knows what’s going to be left for these bozos to fight over when he dies ?

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      He is leveraged up the wazoo, and only has any money because of leasing his name and manipulating banks with his capricious inflation and deflation of property worth. His charlatan goose is cooked.

  5. Eurydice says:

    I don’t like her, but at the same time I’m thinking “good for you.” If everyone else will be picking his bones clean, then why not join in? It’s a fitting end.

    • RoyalCommoner says:

      A lot of hate for these 2, but good for her. She needs to act fast because even if the dude is 77, his will might not give her a big chunk because she’ll need to share/be challenged by ivanka, don, eric, ans stef?

      • Eurydice says:

        Exactly – it’s practically Shakespearean. Trump wants everyone to love him, but they’re all just waiting to take a piece of him.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Shakespeare would write the shit out of this. No one mocked rich grifters better.

    • MY3CENTS says:

      I hope she specifically stated that she will never be buried on his golf course.
      Other then that no love for this family.

  6. Fuzzy Crocodile says:

    The inclusion of “Trump remains very rich” makes me laugh … I continue to question the actual value of his assets and then there is the additional question of how much longer they will be his assets…

    I’m not saying he doesn’t have money and I think he prefers spending other people’ money instead of his own. He’s the ultimate grifter and his supposed net worth is a joke.

    • Libra says:

      Pretty sure he has had financial advise over the years to hide a chunk of cash in offshore accounts. Maybe these are the negotiations; put Barrons’ name on these with her as trustee.

      • ML says:

        Libra, that definitely sounds possible here. Trump has to be trying to squirrel as much as he can away from the government at this point.

    • Truthiness says:

      There was a story about Trump “selling” Maralago several months ago. Zillow’s website showed it sold, the Trumps then denied it. Then it was conjectured that ownership went from Trump to a shell company under Junior’s control, to shield it from litigation.

      • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

        Yes supposedly for $422M and the judge just used the assessed value of $18M to show that it was overvalued by 2300%

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    Mango’s sources of income are drying up, and NYAG James is about to collect a few hundred million from him in the name of the good people of New York State. Doesn’t surprise me that Melania is locking up her cut before the hammer comes down.

  8. Lola says:

    Real question- what makes her think she will get paid? Like this particular contract is the one that will be honored? 😂

    • Moira's Rose's Garden says:

      Fair point. Like he was going to pay Rudy’s legal bills.

    • vs says:

      Exactly! she is smarter than Kevin Costner’s ex though….

      • ML says:

        To be fair to Christine (thanks for that, Moira’s Rose’s Garden!), Malaria was in a much better position to renegotiate than CB, because Agent Orange needed her whereas KC did not. Malaria refused to show up in DC until she got what she wanted, and Christine didn’t have that advantage.

      • Rongela says:

        VS, I agree

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      I imagine she’s leveraging her time as “supportive wife” and potential time in the White House to get him to fork over the money now (into a trust for her and another trust for Barron). Once the negotiations are complete and the money has been transferred we’ll suddenly see her at his campaign events.

      • Eurydice says:

        I don’t know – she was of zero value on the campaign trail and hated every minute while in the White House – and now, they don’t even live together. It would be more peaceful for everyone involved if she got a divorce, but maybe that’s too much to add on top of all the litigation.

      • Truthiness says:

        Yeah, and at this point Melania’s version of supportive wife is to look good, allow Trump to spin those fake stories about their conversations/marriage, and buy her silence.

        If they divorced, she’d be subpoenaed and her testimony could go quite badly for Trump.

  9. TurbanMa says:

    This immediately makes me think if Costner’s ex wife. Did she ever attempt to get a postnup or change the prenup? I wish she had and I hope others married to rich men who see them as completely inferior to themselves will pay attention.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    A blatant attempt to hide assets that are subject to being seized in the multiple lawsuits

    • Robert Phillips says:

      The two oldest sons. Trump doesn’t trust them. And they aren’t smart enough to run the company. I think Ivanka has already turned and given the feds all the offshore accounts. Trying to keep herself and her husband out of trouble. If Melania only negotiated the prenup. Wouldn’t that mean that unless she divorces him she won’t get anything if he loses it all beforehand? I think after next weeks trial Trump will lose most everything he has. And then the banks he owes will start trying to call in their loans. Because there are way to many. And most won’t be paid back.

      • Jaded says:

        Exactly. And now that he and his grifting spawn have had all business licenses in NY state revoked and put into receivership, there’s no income. Drumph is going to have to have a yard sale of his remaining properties and businesses to keep his stupid head above water. I imagine once Melanoma gets her renegotiated pre/post-nup money and a trust set up for Barron she’s going to drop him like a hot turd.

      • Libra says:

        @Robert Philips, interesting that you mention Ivanka. She has been quiet and under the radar for a while now. I do think you are correct; she is cooperating with the feds to save herself and her children. She was once vice president of Trump acquisitions; if anyone knows where the bodies are buried it’s Ivanka. She is smarter than her brothers and is positioning herself for a plea deal or immunity.

  11. lolalola says:

    She can “negotiate” until the cows come home but once Daddy kicks it or goes to the clink, his slimeball kids will sue her and Barron making Bleak House look like a fairytale. She better be loading gold bars into a trunk and burying it somewhere in Slovenia if she the gravy train to continue.
    Now that I think about it, that is probably exactly what she is doing. Birds of a feather and all.

  12. Steph says:

    I think the same thing is happening here as with Masterson. She will divorce him (but necessarily leave him) if he’s convicted and they are moving everything around before the lawsuits hit.

  13. Jay says:

    I always thought that Melanie was a better negotiator than her husband!

    Seriously, though, this is probably about hiding money more than anything else – the trump org is coming under even more scrutiny, questions are being asked about potential wire fraud and lawyers being funded by the saving America pac.

  14. Saschafrom76 says:

    So funny she think she’ll get a penny he’s BROKE Melania and will say anything and sign anything because it’s not worth the paper it’s signed on lol I love this for her. May she stay til the end and end up with what she is – absolutely NOTHING, worthless.🤍

  15. BizzatchExtrordinaire says:

    If her lawyers have any brain cells at all, she’s getting it IN CASH now and socking it away. May not be much – at least that she can touch – when he goes.

    • Dara says:

      Bold of you to assume he has any cash on hand. I’m guessing any assets worth anything were either sold a long time ago or are so borrowed against he has a net worth in the negative.

      Years ago when Ivana divorced him (yes, I’m old), I remember her saying she took her divorce settlement in cash and she believed it was the last of the cash he had. I’m sure he’s made, and lost, millions more since then but her statement has stuck with me all these decades later. He was never as rich as he claimed, or as his gold toilets would suggest. His father was, but that money is long gone.

  16. Debbie says:

    Typically, lawyers include provisions in prenuptial agreements that for every year (or 5 years) the married couple stays together the more money the “poorer” spouse gets if they end up splitting. However, in the Trumps’ case, I think that Melanie has provisions in her prenuptial agreement stating that for every indictment Donald Trump collect, the more money Melanie gets.

    • phlyfiremama says:

      LOL If it’s money per indictment she is raking it IN! 🤣🤣 This is just the beginning, too. They are holding some crimes back for prosecution just in case Eileen Cannon continues to be chumps legal ally and deliberately botches the trial.

  17. Nic919 says:

    There is a lot of money being raised for the legal fees by the MAGA suckers and so that’s the money that can be diverted to a trust. And there is definitely money from the RNC being shifted over.

    And let’s not forget all the deals made while he was president from overseas sources.

  18. Chantal says:

    She may not have earned her “Einstein visa” but clearly she’s no fool. I don’t like her but very smart moves. 3rd times the charm bc anyone with a lick of sense knows that 45 can’t be trusted!

    Wait, is the MSM finally acknowledging that 45 ISN’T a billionaire??? I don’t think he ever was. “He remains very rich” – not for long with all of these judgements against him. To paraphrase billionaire Mark Cuban, “to be a billionaire you have to have a billion $ in the bank.” The billionaires knew 45 was full of it and was why they refused to let him buy an NFL team. He was just their and Melania’s useful idiot.

  19. Scout says:

    Melania certainly knows her priorities and keeps Trump in line, regarding them.

  20. Madi says:

    Melania has to get as much as she can for barons future. can you imagine being trumps kid but no money. When those creditors start knocking they won’t care that barron is a child. Melania will have to pay something to the European mob. She won’t be able to escape them.

    Tiffany has a rich husband and will be expected to chip in.

    See the American banks are one thing. Trump has outstanding debts with private banks and associations. Everyone who benefited from trumps money will have to make payment arrangements.

    Don Jr and Ivanka will be treated the hardest. Jared kushner will have to watch where he travels. I know Ivanka stepped back but she isn’t fooling anyone.

    Trump is 70 something. At that age it’s family debt. No bankruptcy can help.

  21. JEB says:

    “Personally, I don’t think Melania will leave at this point, especially not when she’s so close to becoming his widow.”

    Haha! 🤞

  22. Penguin says:

    I’d put whatever cash I could on a plane and run. It’ll go a long way in Slovenia and Ljubljana is a better place to live than NYC anyways.

  23. Katie Beanstalk says:

    Nobody knows if Melania has good legs because she is always wearing those boots.

  24. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    I hope the Feds keep an eye on this, and can un-do any fraudulent transfers or attemps to hide assets. That’s all this is, and Melania is as corrupt as her ape of a husband.

  25. Christine says:

    Congratulations, Melania. You’ve only managed to make your life richer. It’s cute you think that you deserve more money, for fucking the country out of a competent president.

  26. Lisa R says:

    Donald moved to Florida for two main reasons. The first was the favorable judicial climate. The second is Florida does not have an upper limit on the value of a residence that can be kept as a result of bankruptcy. In the case of fraud, however, Mar-a-Lago can be seized.

    I heard that referees were assigned to watch for assets being transferred. Melania was the second of Donald’s wives who spoke Russian.

  27. phlyfiremama says:

    91 felony charges. There is a court-ordered financial monitor in place to assure assets don’t get removed illegally; she is what kept the cheetoh Mussolini from transferring assets to Delaware. Can he “gift” assets that are under potential forfeiture, even to the one non-grifting child?? Not sure, but an interesting question to put forth to Glen Kirscbner or Ben Meiselas~

  28. Anna says:

    While I would love to see that Nazi idiot behind jail, I doubt he’ll ever spend a day behind bars. He’s more oily and greasy than any other politician alive. We have to wait for his death and hope he doesn’t spring from the ashes .

  29. TheVolvesSeidr says:

    Considering what just happened to him in NY I don’t see him staying solvent for more than another month or so. He’s lost everything basically and it was all one giant credit ponzi scheme anyway. So a higher percentage of nothing is still nothing. Good luck w/ that Melanie.

  30. Dj says:

    He only agreed to this to hide assets in Melania and Barrons trust. The only way he would renegotiate a prenup is if it benefit him. Look at app his other divorces to see how he acted.

  31. ShoppeGirlMN says:

    Am I the only one just finding out that the reason she waited days to join Don at the WH is because the revised prenup wasn’t signed? I wonder when they started negotiating that revision? Did one of them think he wasn’t going to win? Hee Hee Hee!
