Melania Trump automatically became the First Lady of the United States when Donald Trump took the post in the Oval Office. Following the inauguration in 2017, the US President moved out of New York for the White House residence.

However, he arrived on his own as the First Lady stayed in their New York apartment, alongside their only son, Barron Trump. As previously claimed, this happened because they wanted to wait for Barron to finish his school year in the state.

For several years, this has been the reason held by the public after the now-East Wing's Chief of Staff, Stephanie Grisham pointed it out, according to Town & Country. However, new shocking claims alleged that this is not the case at all. As stated, Melania Trump reportedly used the relocation to the White House residence as a "leverage."

The shocking claims emerged after The Washington Post reportedly published excerpts from the new and upcoming unofficial biography of the First Lady. The book titled, The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump, is set to be released on Tuesday.

Author, Mary Jordan, who is a reporter for the newspaper, reportedly alleged in her book that the First Lady "delayed" her and her son's move to Washington D.C. to "renegotiate" the terms of her prenup with Donald Trump. It is also said that she utilized the period to give herself the "time to cool off." The original prenup had "not been incredibly generous," Forbes reiterated.

The allegations reportedly continued and asserted that Melania Trump also wanted to "amend" the financial arrangements that she originally had with her husband. As claimed, this was what the First Lady referred to as "taking care" of their son, Barron Trump.

Mary Jordan then went on to explain that Melania "wanted proof in writing" for this matter. It is said that she included in the writing that Barron would be treated the same way the President treats his first three children, Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric, in terms of "financial opportunities and inheritance."

Aside from the issue concerning the delayed move to the White House, the book also reportedly contains details of the apparent "tension" between Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump. Following the release of the excerpts, the East Wing's Chief of Staff, Stephanie Grisham reportedly called out the material and said that the book is another piece "with false information and source."
