Donald Trump Jr’s wife, Vanessa is divorcing after 12 years of marriage.
After the news broke of the split on Thursday evening, Stetten took to Twitter to reveal a direct message (DM) and tweets that Trump sent her in November 2011, just weeks after wife Vanessa had given birth to son Tristan, their third of five children together.
“Surprised his marriage didn’t work out since he was sending me DMs a month after his wife gave birth,” Stetten tweeted, also sharing a screen shot of Trump Jr.’s DM, which read: “Well Im getting s–t 4the bacon comment glad I opted not 2send the tweet asking 4pics from ur bathroom tweet last night;) people need2chil.”
Stetten explained Thursday that his DM came after she tweeted a “joke about pulling a muscle changing a tampon” and — to her bafflement — “he replied asking if I smelled bacon?”
A spokeswoman for Trump Jr. provided the full thread of their DMs, which she said showed that the exchange was just a joke.)
Stetten told PEOPLE that she had “no idea” what he meant by the bacon reference but pointed to tweets from November 2011 suggesting Trump Jr. has “some weird obsession with bacon.”
One tweet from Trump Jr. that day read: “Does anyone else have a Bacon fetish??? It sounds so wrong but tastes so right!”
