The death of Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s ex-wife, was an accident, the New York City medical examiner ruled on Friday.
Ivana Trump died on July 14 in her New York City townhouse on Thursday, the former president announced on social media. She was 73.
The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner announced that Ivana Trump died from blunt impact injuries to her torso, WNBC reported Friday.
“Having released this determination, OCME will not comment further on the investigation,” the office said in a statement.
Ivana Trump was the first wife of Donald Trump, and the pair shared three children: Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr.
Ivana moved to the US from Canada in the 1970s after fleeing Czechoslovakia during the Czech Communist Party’s control. She and Donald Trump were married for nearly 15 years before their public divorce in 1992, which was finalized shortly before he proposed to his second wife Marla Maples, with whom he shares a daughter Tiffany Trump.
“I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there were many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City,” Donald Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social. “She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life.”
