Vanessa Trump has reportedly filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr.

Rumors circulated on Wednesday that the high-profile couple—the eldest son of President Donald Trump and his daughter-in-law—would split. On Thursday, Vanessa Trump filed for an uncontested proceeding with the Manhattan Supreme Court, Page Six reported.

According to the New York tabloid, unnamed sources expressed concerns over changes in Trump Jr.’s behavior, including his Twitter activity. Last month, Trump Jr. liked tweets pushing conspiracy theories about a survivor of the Parkland, Florida, shooting.

Page Six also reported that the couple had problems in their marriage due in part to his traveling for work as a top executive in the Trump Organization. Sources also cited a February incident where Vanessa Trump, a former model, received a threatening letter in an envelope with white powder. Although the powder was later found to be non-hazardous, she was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Vanessa Trump, 40, and Donald Trump Jr., 40, have been married since 2005. They have five children.
