Melania Trump hasn’t made a public appearance in 20 days, leaving many Americans wondering where the First Lady has been these past three weeks. According to one insider, Melania has taken a break from the public eye to take care of her mother, who is reportedly battling a “serious illness.”
“She’s taking care of her mother,” a source told Showbiz 411 of Melania’s nearly three-week long disappearance.
The 72-year-old Amalija Knavs is reportedly battling a “pretty serious illness,” and is resting at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ.
“They’re all at Bedminster,” the insider told the site. “Melania, her parents, Barron when he’s not in school. She’s (Melania) not in the White House.”
