Amid Donald Trump's desperate effort to avert a $3.2 billion divorce scandal and secure his 2024 presidency bid, sources divulge that he may have had to pacify and secure the backing of his wife, Melania Trump.

Insiders disclose to The National ENQUIRER that the former first lady's recent endorsement of her husband and his past administration was orchestrated by a discreet renegotiation of their prenuptial agreement.

Melania, 53, made her surprising announcement in favor of her beleaguered husband just before a civil court jury compelled Trump to pay $5 million to E. Jean Carroll for defamation and battery related to a 1996 sexual assault claim. Following the disclosure of Carroll's narrative, Trump denied her accusations and was consequently penalized by the jury.

Insiders hint that Melania seized this opportunity to augment her terms, securing a larger monthly allowance and a substantial inheritance for their son Barron, 17, in exchange for her support and agreement to stay with Trump if he triumphs. "Melania wasn't in a place to negotiate with Donald, and he was well aware of the impossibility of a White House return without her," an inside source reveals.

Despite the hefty court ruling, Trump, 76, continues to reject the assault allegations from Carroll, 79, and maintains he was wrongfully accused. However, new claims of his inappropriate advances towards female White House staff have further called his assertions of innocence into question.

Following the court's decision, Trump expressed his frustration online, decrying it as a "political witch hunt" continuation. This trial, however, reportedly escalated the renegotiation costs with his wife of 18 years. The ENQUIRER previously disclosed that the couple had embarked on a trial separation and Melania had sought counsel from divorce attorneys.

Previous allegations about Trump's financial silencing of former liaisons, including adult film star Stormy Daniels, resurfaced and caused Melania additional public embarrassment. Trump continues to deny these claims, but the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation has led to a 34-count felony indictment against him.

The trial also included testimony from journalist Natasha Stoynoff, who alleged Trump forcefully kissed her during a visit to his Mar-a-Lago estate. This revelation, according to sources, was the tipping point for Melania. "Melania was poised to leave, and Donald had to act swiftly if he wanted another presidential run," a source confides.

According to insiders, Trump, known for his negotiating skills, has renegotiated prenuptial contracts in the past, including multiple times with his first wife, Ivana. Melania, too, has allegedly leveraged her support for her husband's political ambitions to secure better terms, most notably during Trump's transition to the White House in 2016. "She has always used her position to her advantage, and this time was no exception," the insider adds.
