Ivana Trump, ex-wife of Donald Trump, left behind an estate worth an estimated $34 million when she died last July, wanting her children Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump, Jr, a home $26.5 million townhouse in New York City, and donating a Florida apartment worth over $1 million for his former nanny.
The former president, meanwhile, got nothing, according to Forbeswhich reported on the content of the approval documents.
The reported snub is not entirely a surprise.
Ivana and Donald Trump were married between 1977 and 1992.
The acrimonious breakup of their relationship and resulting divorce became New York tabloid fodder, amid Mr Trump’s extra-martial affair with Marla Maples, whom he later married.
Ivana Trump, however, later said she and Donald Trump were “best friends” and supported his run for the White House.
“Donald and I are the best of friends and together we have raised three children who we love and are very proud of,” Ivana said in a statement to CNN in 2015. “I have nothing but affection for Donald and I wish him well on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an amazing president.
In November, the Trump siblings put on the market the Manhattan townhouse where Trump lived for decades. The five-story residence near New York’s Central Park is listed for $26.5 million, which will be shared between Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump Jr.
Dorothy Curry, the children’s former nanny who later served as Ivana Trump’s assistant, is the biggest beneficiary outside of immediate family, according to the Forbes examination of inheritance documents.
She would also receive the Yorkshire terrier Tiger from Trump.
The Trump children spoke with admiration of Ms. Curry.
“She’s an incredible woman,” Donald Trump said in 2014, describing her as “a very big part of our lives.”
Ms Curry was also among the last two people to see Trump alive, and the one to discover his body, according to New York Review.
In July, the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office ruled that Trump died of accidental “blunt force injuries to the chest” after she was discovered at the foot of the stairs in her home.
