Ivana Trump’s Cause Of Death Revealed
On Friday, TMZ reported that her cause of death was due to blunt impact injuries to her torso. These injuries were reported to be due to a fall down the stairs in her home.
Shortly after her passing hit the news, the Trump family released a statement to ABC News, saying:
“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump. Our mother was an incredible woman — a force in business, a world-class athlete, a radiant beauty, and a caring mother and friend. Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country. She taught her children grit and toughness, compassion, and determination.”
The Czech-American immigrant had been born on February 20, 1949, and had three children – Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump – with her second husband, former U.S. President Donald Trump.
The prominent businesswoman and author was married to Alfred Winklmayr from 1971 to 1973. She then married Donald Trump in 1977, but they divorced in 1992. In 1995, she married Riccardo Mazzucchelli, but they divorced in 1997. She then married Rossano Rubicondi in 2008, but they divorced in 2009.
