The daughter who long stood by her father’s side amid his scandal-filled presidency has largely kept a low profile since his term ended with a violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, but Ivanka Trump was on Wednesday pulled back into her father’s orbit as she walked into a New York City courthouse to testify in his business fraud trial—one of the few times she’s been seen in public since the start of 2021.
The social and professional futures of Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, were the talk of political commentators and society reporters as the Trump presidency ended in 2021 and the couple was left with damaged reputations and proximity to scandal.
Despite distancing herself from the Trump political machine by announcing she wouldn’t rejoin the 2024 campaign, Ivanka has largely been shunned by her former socialite friends, the New York Times reported, and has not been re-invited to high-society events like the Met Gala or Vanity Fair’s Tribeca Film Festival party since her father left the White House.
The couple did not return to New York at the end of the Trump administration and instead moved to a $30 million home in a gated community near Miami dubbed “billionaire bunker,” where they live near Tom Brady, Julio Iglesias and billionaires Carl Icahn and Norman Braman.
Representatives for Ivanka Trump did not immediately respond to Forbes’ request for comment Wednesday.
Life in what the Times called “no man’s land” has left Ivanka largely out of the public eye, but she has made rare appearances in the last few years:

Ivanka Trump, 42, is the daughter of Donald and Ivana Trump. She married her husband, Kushner, in 2009 and they have three children. Trump was the executive vice president of the Trump Organization before she and her husband became senior advisers to her father’s presidential administration. Ivanka served as head of the Office of Economic Initiatives and Entrepreneurship, which was established under her father, and frequently spoke about women’s rights and their place in the economy. She led the United States presidential delegation to the PyeongChang Olympics, attended the 2019 G20 Osaka summit, organized a Human Trafficking Summit in 2020 and introduced her father at the 2020 Republican National Convention, where he accepted the party’s nomination to run against Joe Biden. She was criticized for retaining ownership of Ivanka-branded fashion gear amid her time in the White House.
