Donald Trump’s romantic life has always been a topic of public intrigue, marked by high-profile relationships and scandalous affairs. Notably, his affair with Marla Maples and the alleged liaison with adult film actress Stormy Daniels has garnered significant attention, as reported by SheKnows.
An interesting chapter in Trump’s romantic saga involves a brief separation from Marla Maples, during which a love triangle emerged with Michael Bolton, the renowned romance-ballad singer. This period saw Maples reportedly inviting Bolton to her Trump Parc condo while Trump was away. The former president, known for his competitiveness, openly expressed his displeasure with Maples’ pursuit of Bolton in a 1994 Vanity Fair interview.
Unfolding of Trump-Maples-Bolton Triangle
Trump’s reaction to Maples’ involvement with Bolton was candid. He admitted to leaving Maples, using a harsh metaphor, but was not pleased to learn about her relationship with Bolton. Viewing it as a competitive challenge, he seemed to take Bolton’s interest in Maples as a validation of her desirability. This dynamic eventually led to Trump winning Maples back, culminating in their marriage in 1993, leaving Bolton out of the picture.
The love triangle came to light through an old FBI file released in 2019 amid a legal case involving Maples’ former publicist, Chuck Jones. The file also exposed other scandalous details, including Jones’ theft of Maples’ nude photos and shoes and revelations about her alleged affair with Trump’s bodyguard, Spencer Wagner, in 1996. The ongoing revelations add complexity to the intricate web of relationships surrounding Trump, with Bolton’s unexpected involvement adding another layer to the narrative.
