Melania Trump Missing From Public for 22 Days but Is 'Doing Great,' Her Spokeswoman Says

First lady Melania Trump has been absent from the public eye for 22 days after her decision not to go with her husband on Friday to a presidential retreat at Camp David, in Maryland, over the weekend.

The first lady, who underwent an embolization procedure on May 14 for a benign kidney condition, will instead stay in the White House. "She is not going. She's doing great," her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told Newsweek in an email Friday.

Melania Trump was last seen May 10 at Andrews Air Force Base, where she joined her husband in welcoming home three Americans who had been detained in North Korea. Four days later she was hospitalized and stayed at Walter Reed Medical Center for five days. It was a "successful procedure," President Donald Trump tweeted on her first day at the hospital.

Melania Trump's more than three-week absence spurred conspiracy theories, one being that she has moved back to New York.

The first lady posted a tweet two days ago addressing speculations: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing. Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

Many social media users were skeptical that Melania Trump herself wrote that tweet.

A former model from Slovenia, Melania is the mother of Trump's third and youngest son, 12-year-old Barron Trump.

Reports in January of an affair Donald Trump allegedly had with adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, exacerbated speculation that Melania Trump was unhappy serving as the first lady and with the spotlight that comes with it.

However, she has taken on more responsibilities since her husband was inaugurated, and on May 7 unveiled her "Be Best" initiative, aimed at helping children with their social media presence and fighting opioid abuse, among other issues.
