The updated terms reportedly involve finances and property, and seek to increase a trust set up for the couple’s only son, 17-year-old Barron, Page Six reported.
It is believed to be at least the third time the couple has renegotiated the agreement, which was initially drawn up nearly two decades ago, around the time they married.
Moreover, sources familiar with their matter spilled the alleged amendment seeks to create ‘a substantial trust’ for their teenage son, as Trump, 77, is set to pay some $5million to author E. Jean Carroll after losing a New York defamation battle.
Currently facing four felony indictments, the ex-head of state – who is reportedly worth $2.5billion – could also be on the hook for another $250million in The Big Apple, in connection with an ongoing civil case against him and his businesses.
Former first lady Melania Trump has reportedly renegotiated her prenuptial agreement with Donald Trump ahead of his potential second term.
The updated terms reportedly involve both finances and property, and seek to increase a trust set up for the couple’s only son, 17-year-old Barron
Without going into specifics, insiders told the entertainment outfit about the some of the major sticking points of pair’s latest ‘postnup.’
‘This is at least the third time Melania has renegotiated the terms of her martial agreement,’ said the unnamed source, who Page Six wrote is ‘close’ with former Commander-in-Chief’s third wife.
The insider reportedly added that the edits are less in anticipation of Trump’s potential second term, and more about his mounting legal battles.
They told the outlet: ‘This agreement was necessary because of the current legal battles… [Trump] has suffered’.
The source went on to reveal what they said was the main crux of the alleged agreement – 53-year-old Melania’s concern for the future of her only child, who is the youngest of Trump’s five children.
According to the Page Six report, which was published on Thursday, ‘Melania is most concerned about maintaining and increasing a substantial trust for [Barron]’, who turns 18 in March.
The person added of Trump’s pending lawsuits – which includes a sprawling $250million civil case from New York AG Letitia James – ‘Trump remains very rich, but with mounting legal bills and judgements, [the renegotiations] provide a more solid future’ for Melania and Barron in the event of split.
‘It’s not that she threatened to leave him,’ the source went on to add, specifying that the former first lady has no plans to leave the aspiring president.
However, they added, ‘It’s definitely the underlying idea.’

James’ filing alleges that the Trump Organization ran a 15-year scheme to help its top executives from paying their proper taxes
Trump- who is worth a reported $2.5billion – recently had to fork over $5millin to E. Jean Carroll, who accused Trump of sexually assaulting her in the changing room of a NYC clothing store in the mid 1990s. She is seen smiling after her win in New York federal court in May
Currently facing four felony indictments as well, the current GOP frontrunner maintains the claims were fabricated to harm his image and bolster the AG’s
A second source who also claimed to be privy to the agreement added: ‘I know that she wanted it to provide her with more money, and also – from what I understand – there’s a specific amount at minimum that Barron is supposed to obtain.
James’ suit, filed back in November, alleges that the Trump Organization ran a 15-year scheme to help its top executives avoid paying proper taxes necessary in the city of New York – to which Trump has pleaded not guilty,
As for the judgment involving Carroll, the politician paid $2million to the New York write for alleged sexual abuse in 1996, as well as $20,000 in punitive damages – and an additional $1million for an incident deemed as defamation this past October.
Another $1.7million was forked over for harm to Carroll’s reputation – as well as another $280,000 in punitive damages in relation to that charge.
Trump has since appealed that verdict – paving the way for even more legal bills.
Meanwhile, also in New York, Trump has been indicted on 34 counts for allegedly falsifying business records related to his $150,000 payment to Stormy Daniels via fixer attorney Michael Cohen. His trial is slated for March, and he has repeatedly aired his plans to plead not guilty.
In Florida, Trump is facing more felony charges for his alleged mishandling of classified documents after leaving the White House – to which he pleaded not guilty earlier in the month, and waived his notice of appearance at an arraignment hearing.
The most immediate of the politician’s legal concerns, however, is his case in Georgia, which had a tentative trial date for March 4, 2024, but was recently moved up to next month after one of Trump’s co-defendants asserted his constitutional right to a speedy trial.
Trump, meanwhile, has moved to have two of his impending trials – in Florida and a federal one in DC over the January 6 insurrection – both pushed back to April 2026, well after the upcoming presidential election.
Trump has yet to comment on the insiders’ claims, after missing the second Republican debate Wednesday night. Still, he remains well ahead in most polls.
