The Latest York attorney general agreed Friday to temporarily delay depositions for former President Donald Trump and two of his adult children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, as a result of the death of Ivana Trump a day earlier.

That they had been scheduled to start their testimony next week as a part of Latest York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil investigation into the Trump Organization.

It was not immediately clear how long the depositions can be postponed in light of Ivana Trump’s passing.

“That is a brief delay and the depositions might be rescheduled as soon as possible,” a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office said in a press release Friday morning. “There is no such thing as a other details about dates or otherwise to offer presently.”

Ivana Trump, 73, was the primary wife of 76-year-old Donald Trump and the mother of three of his children, Donald Trump Jr., 44, Ivanka Trump, 40, and Eric Trump, 38. Latest York City authorities said Ivana Trump was found dead once they arrived at her Manhattan apartment Thursday.

Donald Trump called her a “wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led an ideal and inspirational life,” in a social media post Thursday afternoon.

“We provide our condolences to the Trump family,” said the spokeswoman for James’ office.

James is investigating allegations that the Trump Organization improperly reported the stated valuations of a few of its real estate assets for financial gain, either through tax advantages or for more favorable loan conditions.

Donald Trump Jr. leads the Trump Organization along with his brother, Eric Trump, who sat for a video deposition with the Latest York investigators in October 2020. Eric Trump pleaded the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination greater than 500 times, James’ office said in a court filing in January.

Ivanka Trump, who served as senior White House advisor during her father’s presidency, is a former top executive within the Trump Organization.
