Ivana Trump trumpsplit.jpg

Ivana Trump is confirming she and her Italian husband, Rossan Rubicondi, have split. The AP published a wire announcing the separation after our photos published this morning, set off a barrage of calls to the couple's peeps.

And while those photos of Rubicondi kissing a woman at a party in Italy probably didn't help matters, it looks like this marriage was in trouble from the start.

Ivana and Rubicondi have only been married since last April, but Trump says she filed the legal separation agreement three months ago!!

Trump says she kept quiet about it because she didn't want to hurt Rubicondi's chances as a contestant on the Italian edition of the reality TV show "Survivor."

Despite the split, Ivana doesn't seem to be too upset saying,"Rossano wants to live in Miami and work in Milan. But, I am a New Yorker and my family, friends and businesses are here. As the beautiful song says, 'Que sera sera!'"

What ever will be, indeed!!
