"Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce"
US First Lady Melania Trump is said to be proceeding to divorce President Donald Trump.
Melania is "counting the minutes until he is out of office and she can divorce him," said a former Trump administration aide, reports the Daily Mail.
Former Trump-aide Stephanie Wolkoff, who was appointed as senior advisor to US First Lady Melania Trump, claimed that the Trumps had separate bedrooms in the White House and that their marriage was "transactional".
Another ex-aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who was a political aide to Donald Trump, claimed the couple's 15-year marriage was over.
"Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce," she said.
"If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her."
Despite frosty moments in public, Melania Trump, 50, claims she has "a great relationship" with her husband, 74. Meanwhile, Donald Trump insists that they never argue.
Trump's prenup agreement with his second wife Marla Maples prevents her from publishing any book or giving interviews critical of him.
Lawyer Christina Previte said it was likely Melania had agreed to a similar code of silence.
