After 15 years of marriage, infamous comb-over mogul Donald Trump divorced his wife and mother of his three children, Ivana, in 1992. And like most things in The Donald's life, the separation was not without scandal, which came in the form of Marla Maples. "We knew we had this connection, but it wasn't appropriate timing,"
Maples told New York magazine later of their earliest meetings, which began in 1985. "So we'd spend a lot of time on the telephone with each other without ever being out together in public. By '88, I knew I truly loved this guy." Though she claimed Donald and Ivana had planned to end their marriage, this was allegedly not the case. After the two did split, Maples escaped to avoid attention. Eventually, however, love won out. "What was a really private and nice relationship was judged and made to be something ugly," she told the magazine. In 1993, Trump wed Maples, and the two had a child. But six years into their marriage, the two divorced under the pressure of the spotlight. "If we could have somehow stayed away from the public and the press, it might have been different," she said, "but every private issue seemed to be played out on the front page."
