Melania Trump Reportedly 'Blindsided' and Furious Over Reports of Stormy Daniels Payoff

Days after the Journal report, In Touch magazine published the full transcript of a 2011 interview with the porn star about her alleged sexual relationship with Trump.

"While the first lady was living in Trump Tower in Manhattan, Air Force jets made at least 19 trips to LaGuardia Airport in NY and nine trips to Florida's Palm Beach International Airport to drop off or pick up Mrs. Trump", The Wall Street Journal writes.

The first lady, known for her private lifestyle, set rumour mills churning after she suddenly decided not to join her husband, Donald Trump, at the World Economic Forum in Davos last week.

The East Wing told the press that the first lady chose not to attend Davos due to "scheduling and logistical issues".

Mrs. Trump has been keeping a low profile following a report adult film star Stormy Daniels had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, shortly after he and the first lady Wednesday. Incidentally, that week marked the Trumps' thirteenth (lucky for some!) wedding anniversary, which neither mentioned on their social media accounts.

There, she spent part of her trip relaxing at a spa, the Times reported.

Melania has been conspicuously absent through much of Trump's first year in office, but changes in her schedule may indicate a change in her attitude in the fallout of these recent allegations.

Over the weekend, Grisham again addressed the various rumors on Twitter.

The first lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, criticized reports surrounding Melania Trump's behavior of late, calling it "salacious and flat-out false". The high frequency of flights - 21 in total - stems from an arrangement that kept the first lady in New York City while her son, Barron Trump, finished the fifth grade. "She is focused on her family & role as FLOTUS - not the unrealistic scenarios being peddled daily by the fake news".

Donald reportedly paid her $130,000 in hush money to keep mum about the relationship, but the First Lady is the one who's now being scrutinized for her spending.
