Melania Trump to release 'big money' tell all memoir to earn ‘her own’ amid divorce rumour

Donald Trump is believed to be encouraging his wife to write the tell all book despite speculation that the First Lady is wanting a divorce. Insiders have said the memoir would give Melania Trump a chance to earn her own money.

A source told Page Six: "Melania is in meetings to write her White House memoir.

“And it would be her money – a chance for her to earn on her own."

They added: “I’m told her husband is encouraging her.

“She’s not done, or going as quietly as you might expect.”

It is not clear whether the memoir has been written yet or if it has even been started.

Former First Lady and Ms Trump’s predecessor, Michelle Obama, wrote her own book in 2018.

The book titled ‘Becoming’ was released two years after President Barack Obama left the White House.

Ms Obama’s book sold about 10 million copies in five months according to Penguin Random House.

People close to President Trump have published several books during his presidency which surged in sales.

The source told Page Six that Ms Trump’s memoir could be worth “big money”.

They said: “In the wake of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff’s betrayal, in both print and on secret tapes, Melania’s story could be worth big money.”

Ms Trump was previously accused of plagiarising after she gave a speech in 2016 at the Republican National Convention.

Viewers highlighted how parts of Ms Trump’s speech sounded very similar to a speech given by Ms Obama in 2008.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Ms Trump’s former friend and close advisor, claimed that the First Lady had been sabotaged.

When the Obamas left the White House, they reportedly signed a book deal worth $65 million (£48 million).

The reports that Ms Trump is considering writing a memoir may also spark expectation for President Trump to release a book.

Ms Trump’s memoir could offer insights into her early life including moving to the US from Slovenia and working as a model before meeting her husband.

The news of the book comes amid speculation that Ms Trump is thinking of divorcing the president once he leaves office.

A former aide of Mr Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman, told the Daily Mail: “Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce.

“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.”

However, a spokesman for Mrs Trump has rubbished any speculation of a divorce.
