Ivana Trump, the first wife of former president Donald Trump, died in her home in New York City on July 14 at the age of 73. The city’s medical examiner ruled that her death was accidental and due to “blunt impact injuries” to the torso after an apparent fall down the stairs, The Guardian reported.
On July 18, “The Real Housewives of New York City” star Sonja Morgan posted a tribute to Trump on Instagram that received some mixed reactions from fans. Morgan shared a photo of herself and Trump that she tagged in Saint-Tropez, France, and wrote in the caption, “Missing you Ivana,” with a broken heart emoji. She continued:
You were a wonderful friend to depend on, a role model, mentor, and inspiration when I needed it through the best of times and adversity. We will remember your strength, wit, humor, generosity, and warm heart. Most of all I will always remember how you taught me to juggle business with motherhood while being married to powerful men. You had one the strongest of work ethics that was only only second to being a dedicated Mother. RIP my friend.
The reality star and socialite added several tags at the bottom of her post, namely, “#ivanatrump #mother #wife #friend #confidant #businesswoman #lifestylebrand #beautiful #elegant #entertainer.” She followed that up with a comment stating, “When I get back to NYC I’ll post more. I have nothing here. Sad to be far from everyone grieving this special lady.”
