Mary Trump Just Purchased A Huge Condo In NYC. Here's What We Know

Donald Trump's niece has made a name for herself spilling family secrets — both in interviews and the books she's written. Through her connection with the former president, Mary Trump has gained notoriety and the public has become fascinated with nearly every aspect of her life. Most recently, Mary Trump purchased a New York condo that has raised a few eyebrows. Here's what we know. 

Mary purchased the 2,250-square-foot condo on Friday for roughly $7 million, per the New York Post. It was listed at $7.8 million, but Mary bought it for $7 million directly from the developer. The condo has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a powder room. The master bath is a spa-style bathroom. There is also a large kitchen, which is part of an open floor plan that boasts white oak cabinets and premium appliances. The building, located at 565 Broome St., is near The Dominick hotel on Spring Street, which was formerly known as the Trump Soho. However, Mary's uncle sold it back in 2017. 

All in all, it is quite the impressive new home that set her back a pretty penny. She even appears to be in a fairly good place financially, despite her family's alleged defrauding of her stake in the real estate empire. 

Mary Trump's relationship with her family

Mary Trump set herself up well to be in a position to purchase such a lavish property. Despite her claims that Donald Trump and the rest of the Trump family "swindled" her out of the family fortune, she has earned a small fortune with her tell-all books on her experiences with the family. Her most recent book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," has gone through multiple printings, has been translated into five languages, and sold 1.35 million copies in its first week, per CNBC. It's sales put it on track to be one of 2020's most popular books. "Mary Trump's memoir has transcended the usual ceiling for political books to reach a larger audience of people who want to read stories about unusual families," publisher Simon & Schuster CEO Jonathan Karp said in a statement.

Donald Trump's estranged niece hasn't shied away from commenting on family affairs throughout the years. Following the publication of her book, Mary went on to sue her uncle and other family members for fraud, alleging that they cheated her out of millions of dollars of her inheritance, per The Washington Post. The lawsuit, filed in September 2020 in the New York Supreme Court, accused Mary's two uncles, Donald and Robert, as well as her aunt Maryanne Trump Barry of defrauding her and violating their fiduciary duties. Litigation is ongoing, but Mary likely won't be backing down any time soon.
