In the wake of yet another round of legal troubles for former President Donald Trump, after a New York state judge determined this week that he committed fraud by substantially exaggerating his wealth for business dealings, Melania is reportedly taking precautions. Page Six reports that the former first lady has renegotiated her marital prenup with Trump to protect the financial interests of her son, 17-year-old, 6’7” Barron, as her husband’s legal troubles and bills pile up. Per the tabloid’s source, this is “at least the third time” Melania has renegotiated her prenup with the former president.

“Melania is most concerned about maintaining and increasing a substantial trust for their son, Barron,” a source said, as she hoped to secure “a specific amount at minimum” for the very tall teen. Sources specified that Melania wanted the prenup to get her more money and property as well, and that a new “agreement was necessary because of the current legal battles” and the strain they put on Trump’s wealth.

The existence of any prenup between Melania and Trump has previously, seemingly been denied by Melania’s camp. However, Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan’s 2020 book about Melania, The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, recounted that Melania renegotiated a prenup in 2017 before moving to the White House—as a condition of her months-delayed move from New York to D.C. Jordan also reported that, in some serious shade to Tiffany Trump, the former president’s daughter from his second marriage to Marla Maples, Melania wanted Barron “to be treated as more of an equal to Trump’s oldest three children”—Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric—with regard to inheritance. At the time the book came out, Melania’s then-spokesperson claimed it was a work of fiction.

According to The Art of Her Deal, Melania’s alleged, once-semi-humble prenuptial agreement with Trump became substantially more generous in the wake of the 2016 campaign that led to revelations about Trump’s past infidelities, as well as the leaked audio of him boasting about grabbing women “by the pussy.” Given the events of the last several months—that is, one indictment after another, not to mention Trump being found liable for defaming a woman who says he raped her (a $5 million verdict that he is appealing)—logically, it makes sense that she’d revisit their prenup yet again as campaign season resumes.

Throughout Trump’s political career, Melania has surprisingly been on the receiving end of a good amount of liberal sympathy. But let’s not forget that, according to numerous reports, she’s been an active supporter of Trump’s presidency, and, among other wretched political views, has endorsed racist birther conspiracy theories about former President Obama.

The former first lady may be indifferent to the plight of migrant children separated from their parents (she really doesn’t care, Do U???), but she is apparently nothing if not protective of her own Very Large teenage son—certainly his financial standing. And her financial standing, too, of course!
