Melania has reportedly been weighed down by the passing of her mother, Knavs, following a long battle with an undisclosed illness.

Sources who spoke with the National Enquirer claim that the former first lady is "overwhelmed" by the loss of her mother and can not deal with the pressures of making public appearances during her husband's election campaign.

They also claim that Trump's multiple legal issues and his name being mentioned in the released Jeffrey Epstein documents have added to Melania's stress.

A source said, "Melania has been dealing with her mom's illness for a while, so the last thing she wants to do is show up for photo ops."

Previous reports claimed that Melania and Trump's marriage had become nothing but a "business partnership" as a result of his growing legal problems and links with Epstein.

"She practically had her bags packed last year, but Donald made concessions and renegotiated their prenup for at least a third time to convince her to stay through the campaign," a source once noted told the outlet.

Amid Melania's current struggle with the loss of her mother, Trump has allegedly now become very loving and caring towards his wife as she grieves.

"Donald's been surprisingly supportive of Melania. It's actually brought out his more human side and has led him to comfort her," an insider said.

Adding, "They're closer than they've been for years. At least for now."

At a recent campaign event, ex-president Trump ranted about his trial not being postponed following New York Judge Lewis Kaplan's refusal of his request.

Trump declared that he wanted to attend the funeral to offer Melania emotional support during the service. According to the Daily Mail, he told the crowd, "I have a trial going on, a totally fake trial. And we asked the judge if I could take a day off for a funeral for my mother-in-law, who was very close to me also."

He called Judge Kaplan an "animal" for not postponing the trial and said it was all planned to "hurt" him.

Trump further claimed, "These are bad people, these are radical left lunatics that want to hurt me because they think it's gonna hurt me at the polls so that Biden can win the election."
