The book “Free, Melania: The Unauthorized Biography,” confirmed what has been reported for several years, according to Kate Bennett, the author of the book. Apparently, Melania and Donald Trump maintain separate bedrooms in the White House.
Within the 30,000-square-feet of the residence, Melania, 49, was able to “carve out her own space,” Bennett reported.
“It is true the first couple doesn’t share a bedroom, according to several sources, and the first lady prefers her own large, private space in a suite of rooms on a separate floor,” Bennett revealed.

The possibility that the couple has separate bedrooms and “separate lives” was first reported in the first few months of Trump’s presidency.
That was when Melania Trump still lived in Trump Tower in New York City because she wanted their son Barron to finish out the academic year at his private school there.
There were many reports at the time that the Slovenian-born ex-model was not happy that her husband, 73, had won the presidential election. The “#FreeMelania” social media hashtag was based on assumptions about her being unhappy.
“Melania does not keep hidden from everyone around her how miserable she is,” a family source said.
A year later, a report by Ronan Farrow suggested that they have maintained separate bedrooms throughout nearly 15-year of marriage.
There is also information about Trump’s alleged nine-month affair, starting in June 2006, with the former Playboy Playmate called Karen McDougal.
McDougal said that she met Trump at the Playboy Mansion in 2006 when he was taping an episode of “The Apprentice.” At the time, he and Melania had been married for more than a year.
