(Newser) – Vanessa Trump has filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr. after 13 years of marriage, the New York Daily News reports. She filed for an uncontested divorce Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court. According to Page Six, the uncontested filing is a sign the couple isn't expecting a legal battle over assets or custody of their five children. The divorce documents weren't made public, and a reason for the split isn't clear, the AP reports. However, the couple was reportedly having problems due to Donald Trump Jr.'s frequent tweeting and traveling. Vanessa Trump was hospitalized last month after opening a letter addressed to her husband that contained a white powder. The material was later determined to be nonhazardous.
