Ivanka Spotted Not Wearing Her Wedding Ring as Rumors Spread That She’s Headed for Divorce With Jared Kushner

There are persistent rumors that Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner are headed for divorce. Additional fuel has been added to this flame now that Ivanka was seen arriving at the mansion of billionaire businessman/Trump aficionado Wayne Boich in Miami. She wore a white tennis dress and sported a visor for an afternoon tennis match.

But something was missing, according to Queerty: Her wedding ring.

And there were other folks waiting for her when she arrived, according to The Daily Mail.

“Upon arrival, Ivanka was greeted by a female friend who was also wearing athletic attire, and a male companion who later escorted her inside the massive house. Husband Jared Kushner and the couple’s three kids were not present at the gathering.”

The rumor mill has been working overtime as it looks apparent that Kushner and Trump may be headed to splitsville. And the rift may have begun shortly after Ivanka’s dear old dad was ousted from Washington, D.C., and failed in his attempts to launch an insurrection. People began avoiding the young couple after that and they found themselves pariahs in the circles they formerly traveled.

Accordingly, one source told Radar Online last month that the couple’s marriage had become “toxic” and that they were headed for a breakup.

“It’s all falling apart,” that person said. “They’re always fighting and can barely contain their growing animosity for each other even when they appear in public.”

Page Six also reported in December that the couple appeared “cold” toward each other during a yacht party in Miami, acting more like “acquaintances” than spouses as they mingled with other partygoers.

“I never saw them interact,” said one person who claimed to be at the event. “They stood in the same group, but almost as acquaintances. As they moseyed around the party, they kept their distance [from each other] — never too close; never too far apart.”

It also looks like the distance between Ivanka and her father Donald Trump may be widening as well. She did, after all, skip his big 2024 campaign launch at Mar-a-Lago, saying in a statement that she was no longer interested in politics and wished to prioritize her family.

“I love my father very much. This time around, I’m choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family,” she told Fox News Digital. “I do not plan to be in politics. While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that she and her possibly soon-to-be ex-husband earned a hefty $640 million working for dad in the White House. Nor does it hurt that Kushner took home a $2 billion deal from the Saudis. That should keep her comfortable outside the political arena.

The following month, Donald Trump took to Truth Social to issue a sharply-worded statement that he never asked Ivanka or Jared to be part of his 2024 campaign, to begin with. He noted he wanted to shelter them from “fake and corrupt news” and the “SleazeBags” working in Washington.

It seems like Ivanka has maintained her space; she was a no-show at Mar-a-Lago during her father’s annual New Year’s Eve party. She did send a tweet wishing her 10.5 million Twitter followers a Happy New Year’s message.

And yes, Twitter had thoughts.
