Ivana Trump, former wife of Donald Trump and mother to Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka and Eric, passed away unexpectedly on July 15. Radar Online reports that “family insiders” believe they are aware of at least one of the beneficiaries of her fortune.
According to the outlet, “a source said that they would not be surprised if Ivana Trump planned to leave millions to her dog, Tiger,” adding they believed her wishes would be stipulated in her will.
The well-cared-for dog is now living with Ivana’s friend Dorothy.
In an interview with Radar Online, Ivana’s friend said: “Tiger was her best friend. She loved that dog. Tiger was always getting under her feet and snapping at everyone but her. Ivana didn’t care.”
Sadly, the source revealed: “Tiger was all she had. She died a single woman. Her children were grown up — and she would have been totally alone if not for Tiger. I wouldn’t be surprised if she left millions in her will to Tiger.”
Ivana’s death was ruled an “accident.” Though there were initial questions about the possibility of foul play, a New York City medical examiner’s report has put those rumors to rest.
The Conservative Brief reports that Ivana, 73, was “not known to be under any substantive medical care” and was “found at the bottom of a set of stairs in her home.”
The medical examiner’s report notes that Ivana died after a fall that resulted in blunt impact injuries to the torso, according to Fox News.
“Having released this determination, OCME will not comment further on the investigation,” the medical examiner’s report read.
Fox News added that a neighbor called police to perform a wellness check after not seeing Ivana for “some time.” When police arrived, they found Ivana at the bottom of her steps.
Ivana is survived by her three children and ex-husband former President Donald Trump. All provided positive tributes.
“Heartbroken by the passing of my mother. Mom was brilliant, charming, passionate, and wickedly funny. She lived life to the fullest — never forgoing an opportunity to laugh and dance. I will miss her forever,” Ivanka wrote.
“She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!”
The Trump family released this statement:
“It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Ivana Trump. Ivana Trump was a survivor. She fled from communism and embraced this country …
“She taught her children about grit and toughness, compassion and determination. She will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children, and ten grandchildren.”
Former President Trump announced Friday morning that his scheduled rally in Arizona would be postponed one week “out of love and respect for Ivana.”
