Ivana Trump has reunited with her ex-husband-turned-ex-boyfriend Rossano Rubicondi — five months after she announced they had ended their relationship because she wanted to be a ‘free woman.’
The Czech businesswoman and her on-again, off-again beau were seen walking together in New York after enjoying a dinner date at the Italian restaurant Cipriani on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
Ivana, 70, and Rossano, 47, were both dressed in head-to-toe black as they walked arm in arm before hopping into a taxi together and returning to her townhouse.

The former model kept warm in a black winter coat with a luxe fur collar and cuffs, which she wore over black straight-leg dress pants.
She topped off her look with stylish patent-leather ankle booties and her beloved Lady Dior mini bag.
Ivana’s platinum blonde hair was pulled back in her signature beehive with her bangs framing her face, which was perfectly made up.
She sported thick black liner around her eyes and rosy-pink lipstick, her preferred beauty look in recent years.
The socialite was seen walking by herself before meeting up with her old flame at the restaurant, where they spent about an hour eating.

Thanksgivings past! A few hours before her lunch date with Rossano, Ivana’s daughter Ivanka shared a sweet throwback snap from a past holiday
They walked out together, with Rossano matching Ivana in a black wool coat that he wore over a black knit top and pants.
Ivana held onto her designer bag with one hand and her former beau’s arm with the other, while he carried their takeout bag from the restaurant.
The dinner may have simply been a friendly catch-up between the former couple, but they looked quite cozy as he helped her get into the back of their cab.
It’s unclear if they will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday together.
Ivana announced their split back in June before escaping to Saint-Tropez for the summer.

The mother-of-three admitted that the time she spends in Saint-Tropez was part of the reason why she and her longtime beau couldn’t make their relationship work.
‘The relationship just ran its course,’ she told Page Six. ‘Rossano spends a lot of time in Italy and I spend a lot of time in New York, Miami, and Saint-Tropez, and he has to work.’
‘The long-distance relationship really doesn’t work,’ she added. ‘We had a good time and are friends. The split was amicable.’
Rossano, meanwhile, asserted that he has ‘good respect’ for the businesswoman following their breakup, but he later made it clear that her children were a source of ire in their romance.
Ivana’s ex slammed the children she shares with the current president in July, calling them ‘disgusting’ and ‘stupid’ while claiming they had been ‘rude’ to him.

Rossano emphasized that he wasn’t after the matriarch’s fortune and suggested that money was often something he quarreled with her children about.
The former couple dated for six years before they tied the knot in 2008 during a lavish $3 million ceremony at Mar-A-Lago, the Palm Beach estate owned by none other than Ivana’s second ex-husband, Donald Trump.
But just eight months after their Midsummer Night’s Dream-themed nuptials, Ivana and Rossano announced their upcoming divorce.
Ivana said she had actually filed for separation three months prior and blamed the split on her and Rossano’s different preferences for their cities of residence.
The couple had faced rumors that Rossano had been unfaithful to her while filming the TV show Survivor in Honduras, which Ivana denied in her Page Six column just a month before announcing their split.

Rossano was Ivana’s fourth husband after Alfred Winklmayr, Donald, and Riccardo Mazzucchelli, but the two didn’t stay apart for long.
They reunited shortly after their divorce and spend a great deal of time together until Ivana announced in June that she had broken up with him.
The Raising Trump author’s kids — Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — are all grown up now with children of their own, and Ivana stressed that she has no desire to get married again nor does she really have an interest in dating.
‘I don’t want to get married again,’ she told Page Six. ‘I’m done. You get married because you want a family. I have three kids and grandkids. I just want to be free and go where I want to go with whoever I want. I want to be a free woman.’
The socialite went on to say that while she doesn’t want a boyfriend, she does ‘like to have companions’ to spend time with.
‘I have plenty of men who take me for lunches and dinners and balls or charity events,’ she explained. ‘I don’t want to be attached.’
