Melania Trump believes former President Donald Trump‘s fourth indictment is ‘another problem for her husband’ and ‘not for her,’ as she’s kept a low profile in New York City amid the ex-president’s legal woes.
People Magazine gave an update on the former first lady Wednesday evening, with a social source telling the magazine that ‘Melania publicly supports her husband but privately prefers a life with 100 percent privacy and no press scrutiny.’
‘She hates all of the legal problems and says very little about them anytime anywhere,’ a source stated. ‘She leads her own life.’
The revelation came days after a Georgia grand jury indicted Trump and 18 others for their alleged roles in trying to overturn the 2020 election in the state. Trump has blasted the RICO charges, calling them a political witch hunt.
Melania’s latest apparent feelings seem to echo her famous green coat that drew ire when she wore it as her husband was president and read: ‘I really don’t care. Do you?’

Trump faces criminal cases in Florida, Georgia, New York and Washington, DC. He was indicted in New York on charges related to the alleged hush-money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels.
His Florida case is on federal charges related to the handling of classified documents. He was also indicted by special prosecutor Jack Smith for allegations of election interference.
DailyMail.com exclusively reported that Melania joined the ex-president and Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo and her husband Jonathan for a double date at Bedminster after Trump returned from federal court in Washington, D.C., on August 3, for an appearance related to the election interference charges.
No pictures were captured, however, of the former first lady at the Bedminster dinner.
It marked the only time, thus far, that Trump didn’t address a crowd of supporters after a day in court.
In April he spoke before a filled ballroom at Mar-a-Lago after being arraigned in the Stormy Daniels hush-money case.
In similar fashion, he hosted a crowd in front of his Bedminster clubhouse in June after spending time in court in Miami for the federal classified documents case.
Another one of People’s sources said that Melania Trump prefers the couple’s pad at Trump Tower in New York City over the Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort, where they spend the summers with Mar-a-Lago – located in Palm Beach, Florida – being too hot.
‘Melania has a small circle of family and very few trusted friends,’ the social source said. ‘Unlike others who belong to her husband’s clubs, she doesn’t rely on outside stimulants to guide her daily life.’
Melania was last photographed in public running errands in Manhattan on August 9.

‘She has her son, other family members, and select friends,’ the source said.
Melania Trump’s parents have also been photographed outside of Trump Tower in recent months.
The source pushed that just because the former first lady hasn’t attended Trump’s post-indictment events or been seen on the campaign trail, doesn’t mean she’s not supportive.
‘She knows how her husband is but still believes there has been too much dumping on him and wants nothing to do with any of it,’ the source said.
The ex-president was indicted for a fourth time Monday night, this time by a grand jury out of Fulton County, Georgia, over Trump’s efforts to overturn President Joe Biden’s 2020 election win in the state.
‘She hates all of the legal problems and says very little about them anytime anywhere,’ the source added. ‘She leads her own life.’
