Ivanka Trump was spotted fighting back tears on Wednesday afternoon when she received an emotional phone call on her way to the gym.
The former senior White House adviser, 40, hid her eyes behind gold aviator sunglasses, but she appeared to be crying — or close to them — as she held her cell phone to her ear.
It’s probably been a rough few months for Ivanka, whose husband, Jared Kushner, had a second surgery late last week to treat an apparent recurrence of thyroid cancer, which was said to be a success.

The mother of three was dressed in a navy hooded sweatshirt with a white V design and cropped black leggings despite the balmy Florida weather. She completed her workout look with a pair of black New Balance sneakers.
Her blond hair was pulled back in a messy bun and her white earplugs hung around her neck. She also had a red cord bracelet on her wrist, which she has been wearing occasionally for years.
She hasn’t mentioned the purpose of the bracelet, but it does resemble the kind of red cord Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the “evil eye.”
Ivanka’s face was filled with emotion as she walked through the gym parking lot with her cell phone. It’s not clear who she spoke to, but she was visibly upset.
She had no bag and chose to carry her car keys in her free hand as she walked. She was still on her phone when she walked into the gym.

The same day Ivanka was seen almost in tears, Jared, 41, told about his surgery during a performance on The National Bureau.
“I had surgery last week. It was very successful. That’s why I’m a little higher than I normally am,’ he said, referring to how his shirt was buttoned to cover his neck.
Three weeks ago, Jared and Ivanka visited the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he was being treated for the disease.
His latest surgery comes after he first publicly revealed his treatment in his new book, “Breaking History: A White House Memoir.”
Jared wrote that in 2019 he had a similar surgery for thyroid cancer while serving as a senior White House adviser to President Donald Trump.

It’s probably been a rough few months for Ivanka, whose husband, Jared Kushner, 41, had a second surgery late last week to treat an apparent recurrence of thyroid cancer.
In addition to the stress of her husband’s treatment, Ivanka also mourns the loss of her mother.
Ivana Trump, 73, was found “unconscious and unresponsive” at the bottom of the stairs in her Upper East Side mansion around 12:30 p.m. on July 14. Her housekeeper found her when she arrived for work and called 911.
A coroner determined she died of blunt force injuries from a fall TMZ.
Ivanka’s father was saw her comforting at her mother’s funeral, the first time they’d been seen together in seven months since their public feuded over the 2020 presidential election.
Her younger brother Eric Trump, 38, returned to their mother’s mansion on Aug. 24 to oversee the removal of her belongings six weeks after her death.
Workers were seen removing furniture, including chairs, a bookcase and an ironing board. The items were thrown into a compactor for transport to the landfill.
On the same day Ivanka was seen nearly in tears, Jared spoke about the procedure during an appearance on The National Desk, saying it was “very successful.”

Meanwhile, her father, former President Donald Trump, faces a Justice Department investigation into the removal and storage of government documents at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

On Thursday, the day after Ivanka was seen upset at the gym, Carolyn Maloney, chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, announced it will obtain Donald Trump’s financial records after the former president agreed not to appeal an appeals court decision.
Maloney (DN.Y.) announced the breakthrough three years after her predecessor asked the committee chairperson for it, and weeks after she lost her own congressional primaries.
“After numerous judicial victories, I am pleased that my committee has now reached an agreement to obtain key financial documents that former President Trump spent years fighting to hide from Congress,” she said in a statement.
The legal saga is so long and intricate that Maloney has released a legal path timeline that will give lawmakers a glimpse into Trump’s accounting practices, which are also the subject of a civil investigation in New York.
The apparent agreement comes as Trump pools his legal resources on a new front as he faces a Justice Department investigation into the removal and storage of government documents at his Florida Mar-a-Lago club.
On Wednesday, the former president reprimanded the FBI for the way it photographed a collection of top-secret documents found in his office in Mar-a-Lago.
Trump has strengthened his legal team amid speculation that some of his lawyers may be witnessing the case, with one of them signing a document testifying to a “diligent search” for classified information in Mar-a-Lago.
