In an interview with Daily Star, relationship expert and life coach John Kenny said that Melania Trump had likely realized that husband Donald Trump "isn't good for her," which is why she struggled to "not show her emotions" in public.
Melania was frequently criticized for her frosty demeanor towards former president Trump in public, and on one occasion, she was caught on camera pulling her hand away from him following his speech.
She was also seen walking away from Trump and into a car while Biden was being inaugurated, and seemed unbothered by her husband’s loss.
Kenny explained that he believed Melania’s feelings towards her husband "comes out in her body language and behavior," and that her "actions dictate," her unhappiness.
"She may realize that she has chosen to be with someone that isn't good for her, as her actions dictate, that even in public she finds it hard not to show her emotions,” he said. "This comes out in her body language and behavior."
He added that Melania’s defensive response over divorce rumors may have been a sign she was "struggling with people highlighting her real emotions."
The outburst Kenny referred to is the statement Melania's team released slamming the media's "unhealthy obsession" with her after CNN published an article suggesting that the Trumps may be heading for divorce.
The tweet read: "Mrs. Trump is no longer First Lady. She is a private citizen, mother, & wife. Sources in this article are not affiliated [with] her nor have insight into her thoughts or daily life."
"Her comment about an Unhealthy Obsession about her relationship is likely because of the emphasis she is placing on it herself,” Kenny stated. "She might be defending her relationship, as now he is no longer president it is ok for her so speak out. But maybe she is struggling with people highlighting her real emotions.”
"The truth can be hard to face, especially if you are being constantly reminded of it," he added.
