A cause of death has not been announced, however an Italian report has claimed Rossano: “had been ill for a year” ahead of his death.

Ivana and Rossano had dated for six years before they tied-the-knot in 2008 – when he was 36 and she was 59.

Their marriage came 16 years after Ivana divorced President Donald Trump – who she was in a marriage with from 1977 to 1992.

While Ivana and Rossano’s marriage was short lived – the pair divorced in 2009 after just one year – it was not the end of their romance.

They continued to enjoy an on-off relationship until 2019 – at which point Ivana declared they had: “called it quits”.

However, the couple were spotted together in New York last November.

Their wedding cost a reported $3 million (£2.2 million) and was hosted by Donald with 400 guests and with Ivana and Donald’s daughter, Ivanka, acting as maid of honor.

He worked as a model and also enjoyed success as an actor – featuring in productions including the TV show Professione Fantasma and the film Natale a Beverly Hills.

His last film credit was the 2018 project Head Full Of Honey which featured Nick Nolte, Matt Dillon and Emily Mortimer in the cast.
