”We had a confidentiality clause,” Ivana Trump told the New York Times in October 1997 about her divorce from her third husband, Riccardo Mazzucchelli, ”but basically what was mine is mine and what was his is his.”
It would appear, however, that Mazzucchelli didn’t always adhere to the strict confidentiality agreement, or at least not as far as Trump was concerned — and it almost cost him $15 million. “We filed a lawsuit for a permanent injunction to prevent him from further violating the confidentiality clause of their pre-nuptial agreement and to recover damages resulting from the breach, which threatens to injure her ongoing business ventures,” Trump’s formidable divorce attorney said in July of the same year.
The story goes that Trump became very angry when the National Enquirer quoted Mazzucchelli saying, “It’s over!” In true fashion, the mogul immediately responded, “Riccardo’s quote to the National Enquirer that ‘I dumped Ivana’ is untrue!” she vehemently refuted.
