Meet Donald Trump’s lesser-known daughter, Tiffany Trump
After making a somewhat controversial and liberal-minded speech at the recent Republican National Convention, Trump’s oldest daughter Ivanka has been all over the news. But even with the recent media blitz surrounding Ivanka and her other well-known sibs, like Donald Jr., we can’t forget that The Donald has another beautiful and successful daughter waiting in the wings.
Here’s what you may not know about Trump’s daughter Tiffany, who’s managed to grow up right under our noses.
1. Marla Maples is her mother
Remember the scandal Marla Maples caused in the ’90s when she had a long-running affair with the then-married Trump? Everyone saw Maples as the home wrecker who torpedoed Trump’s 12-year marriage to wife Ivana Trump. Once the divorce dust settled, Maples and Trump married and Maples was soon pregnant with Tiffany, which didn’t do much for Maples’ gold digger status. Fast forward 20 years, and baby Tiffany is all grown up. Say what you will about Maples — she’s still beautiful at 50, and she somehow raised a Trump heir in near anonymity.
2. Tiffany and her mom are very close
Once the Maples/Trump empire collapsed, mother and daughter moved to California and forged a strong bond. Maples told Oprah Winfrey on Where Are They Now? that Donald Trump supported his daughter financially but that she considered herself a single parent when it came to the actual parenting. When Tiffany was a teen, she and her mother cooked, played tennis together and formed a close relationship. Tiffany told the Daily Mail, “We’ve always been very close since she did raise me as a single mom.”
3. She just graduated college
Tiffany attended her father’s alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated in 2016 with a double major in sociology and urban studies. Even with the divorce between them, both of her parents bit the bullet and showed up to give their support, along with siblings Ivanka and Barron.
4. Her net worth is under $1 million
While half a mill sounds like big bucks to most of us, you can already guess that this is small potatoes in the Trump family. Since Tiffany just graduated college and will soon begin building her career, it makes sense that her current net worth is estimated at $600,000. Compare this to her dad’s net worth at $4.1 billion, and we can see where she’s heading.
5. She’s an aspiring pop star
In her teenage years, Tiffany surfaced on the scene with hopes of becoming a pop star. She told the Daily Mail, “I love music, it’s always been very dear to me. It’s more of a hobby right now, but we’ll see in a couple of years if I actually want to take it to the next level as a professional level. Right now the focus is on school.” She has released “Like a Bird,” which is a little Paris Hilton-ish (what is it with wealthy heirs and Auto-Tune?), but it’s a place to start.
