Ivana Trump, 59, and Rossano Rubicondi, 35, have severed their partnership, citing New York City as the catalyst: "Rossano wants to live in Miami and work in Milan," Ivana Trump said in a prepared statement. "But, I am a New Yorker and my family, friends and businesses are here." Also, yesterday he was photographed kissing another lady. The split comes as something of a shock: When Trump and Rubicondi married in an elaborate ceremony in Palm Beach last April, everyone thought that this, Ivana's fourth wedding, was going to be it — that at last, Ivana had found a soul mate, and so what if he happened to be an Italian reality-show star twenty years her junior? As anyone could see, the two had a spiritual, intellectual, and physical connection that would bind them together for all eternity. Ha, just kidding, everyone thought he was a total gold-digging sleazeball: "You can't be overly surprised by this, it's unfortunate it [the marriage] ever took place," Ivana's ex, Donald Trump, tells the Post."I was extremely skeptical [of the marriage] and when I got to know him, I was not a fan of everything I saw." She should really have asked the Donald his advice. After all, he is in a relationship with a woman who loves him.
