Ivanka Trump’s fourth husband Rossano Rubicondi has succumbed to cancer after fighting a year-long battle with melanoma, a form of skin cancer.
Rubicondi and Trump were married in 2008. They divorced in 2009, however, they continued to see each other on and off after the relationship officially ended.
In 2019 Trump explained to Page 6 that the relationship had “ran it’s course.”
“Rossano spends a lot of time in Italy and I spend a lot of time in New York, Miami and St-Tropez, and he has to work,” she shared.
“The long-distance relationship really doesn’t work. We had a good time and are friends. The split was amicable.
His death was first reported by Italian TV personality, Simona Ventura.
“Thanks for the journey we made together, for the good times and the bad, and also the tears and laughter,” she wrote.
Rossano… Grazie per il percorso fatto insieme, per i litigi, le incazzature ma anche i chiarimenti e le risate, tantissime, che abbiamo fatto insieme. Fai buon viaggio RiP 🌹#rossanorubicondi pic.twitter.com/O3NF6V6dee— Simona Ventura (@Simo_Ventura) October 29, 2021
Trump confirmed the news of Rubicond’s death to PEOPLE on Saturday.
“I’m devasted,” she said.
The friendly divorcees were last seen together in July when they strolled through New York City.
