Vanessa Trump filing for divorce from Donald Trump Jr. had Americans on social media abuzz, wondering if first lady Melania Trump would follow suit with President Donald Trump.
On Friday morning, Google Trends saw searches for the phrase “Melania Trump files for divorce” surge 70 percent. “Melania Trump filed for divorce” jumped 40 percent within an hour, according to the Inquisitor.
With the first lady’s name being more well-known than Vanessa Trump’s, searches on variations of “Trump divorce” also increased.
Vanessa Trump filed for divorce Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, reportedly due to marital issues that came from Trump Jr.’s controversial tweets and his frequent travel.
Following news of Vanessa Trump’s divorce, many Twitter users speculated that Melania Trump would be next.
“Melania must be jealous of her freedom now...” Luisa Haynes tweeted, referring to Vanessa Trump.
Rumors that Melania Trump was seeking a divorce—she would be the first ever first lady to divorce a U.S. president—abounded in the weeks following reports of an alleged affair between Donald Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006.
Twitter star and Donald Trump critic Claude Taylor tweeted, “Mrs Trump filed for divorce....sorry, no. Not Melania.”
As the first lady, Melania Trump often travels with her husband, but like Vanessa Trump, she may not be a fan of her husband’s fiery tweets. The first lady has spoken out against cyberbullying, a move that some have perceived as a slight against the president.
Melania Trump also follows one of her husband’s least favorite people, former President Barack Obama, on Twitter.
