Ivana Trump, the ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, died on Thursday after falling down the stairs of her New York City apartment, the city’s medical examiner said Friday.
Trump, 73, suffered blunt impact injuries to her torso in the fall. Her death was ruled accidental by the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner.
Donald Trump announced his ex-wife’s death on his social media outlet, Truth Social, on Thursday.
“I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City,” he said in the post. “She was a wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest in peace, Ivana!”
Ivana Marie Zelníčková was born in Czechoslovakia and immigrated to Canada and eventually the US in the 1970s.
In a tweet, Ivanka Trump said she was “heartbroken” at the death of her mother.
“Heartbroken by the passing of my mother,” she tweeted. “Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate and wickedly funny. She lived life to the fullest ― never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance.”
