In 2008, Trump married the star of “The Golden Bowl.” Even though they split up in 2009, they were still friends for the next ten years.
In 2018, he and Trump were guests on the Italian version of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Before they got married in 2008, they were together for six years. In 2009, though, they split up. Over the next ten years, they stayed friends and even kept going out on dates.
