Rossano Rubicondi’s Parents Reveal Ivana Trump Kept Half of Her Late Ex-Husband’s Ashes

Ivana Trump has kept half of her fourth ex-husband Rossano Rubicondi’s ashes after his death, according to his parents, who revealed she cared for him while he was secretly ill.

Claudio and Rosa Rubicondi, opened up about the death of their late son during a recent appearance on the Italian talk show Pomeriggio Cinque, saying hardly anyone knew he was battling cancer until he was found dead at the end of October at the age of 49.

It is well known that Rossano died of melanoma, but translation of the television interview stated he had liver cancer and suffered a lung aneurysm in the bathtub. He was found the next morning.

“He had liver cancer. He didn’t tell anyone but Ivana. She supported him until he died,” host Barbara d’Urso said.

The Rubicondis admitted that their son’s death was a complete shock because they were unaware that he was seriously ill.

“He rarely called us and we didn’t know he had any health problems,” explains Claudio. “I was told a vein broke in his lung and he fell in the bathtub. He was home alone and stayed there for several hours.’

Ivana, 72, was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Rossano after their brief marriage in 2008, but they shared a bond until his death.

When the Czech socialite learned of her ex’s death, she called his parents to express her condolences. She also promised to send them his ashes after he was cremated.

“She called us to express her sorrow and said she would send us Rossano’s ashes,” said Claudio, with Rosa adding, “Ivana asked if she could keep half of the ashes. I said yes.’

Rossano’s death was announced on Twitter on the evening of October 29 by Italian television presenter Simona Ventura.

‘Rossano…Thank you for the journey we’ve been on together, for the good times and the bad, and also the tears and the laughter, so many, and all we’ve done together. Parting. RiP,” she tweeted.

She later shared a video of her late friend on a beach with Ivana, captioning it: “This video, which I found from my personal archive, will always remain in my heart.”

Ivana has not yet commented on Rossano’s death.

The Italian actor reportedly had health problems in the past year and was diagnosed with melanoma, a form of skin cancer. It is not clear whether the cancer has spread. Other outlets reported that he had liver cancer.

Ivana and Rossano dated for six years before they tied the knot in 2008 in a lavish $3 million ceremony at Mar-A-Lago, the Palm Beach estate owned by none other than Ivana’s second ex-husband, Donald. Trump.

She was 59 at the time, he was 36.

The wedding was set on the theme of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Nights Dream and 400 guests attended, including her second husband. Ivanka’s only daughter, Ivanka, was her bridesmaid.

But just eight months after their wedding, Ivana and Rossano announced their impending divorce.

They have reconnected a number of times over the years and although they last broke up in 2019, that didn’t stop them from spending time together.

Rossano was Ivana’s fourth husband after Alfred Winklmayr, Donald – with whom she shares three children – and Riccardo Mazzucchelli.

Roberto Alessi, an Italian film director, recently revealed that friends of Rossano and Ivana thought they might get back together as he battled melanoma.

“Lately he got closer to Ivana Trump and many thought they wanted to remarry too,” he told Italy’s Corriere della Sera website.
