According to US Magazine, Melania Trump has grown increasingly despondent over life in the spotlight with scandal-plagued husband Donald Trump and wants to flee with her son, Barron.

The article claims that the first lady is disconsolate following reports that Trump had affairs with porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy playmate Karen McDougal. The torrent of news has taken its toll on Trump's third wife.

A spokesperson for the first lady stated Melania Trump stayed behind in Florida last weekend  -- while the president returned to Washington, D.C. -- claiming she, "is focused on being a mom and is quite enjoying spring break at Mar-a-Lago while working on future projects.”

According to a Trump family confidante, that is not the case.

According to the source, she’s appalled that “all eyes are on her relationship with her husband. It’s not an easy time for her,” in light of the 60 Minutes interview broadcast last Sunday.

“She is very, very unhappy with her life,” claimed another friend of the first lady. “If she could, she would get away from Donald and just be with her son.”
