THE Trump family is heading to Manhattan where Ivana's funeral is set to take place at a historic Catholic church on the Upper East Side.
While the matriarch's three children Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric are set to attend, it is unclear whether ex-husband and former president Donald Trump will show, sources say.
Despite his appearance being up in the air, Donald, who got his nickname the Don from Ivana, is reportedly "very upset."
"Donald talked to her regularly and sent flowers on every birthday and other occasions," a source told the New York Post.
The source continued to say that if he does show, it will be without wife Melania who had a tense relationship with Ivana.
The 73-year-old Ivana died after suffering blunt force trauma to the torso from a tragic fall last Thursday, the New York City Medical Examiner's Office said.

"In lieu of flowers. It's requested that donations go to the big dog rescue," a source said.
This comes as a private security guard gave the Sun heartbreaking details about the day of Ivana's tragic death.
The 73-year-old Trump family matriarch has lived at 10 East 64th St. where she was found dead for more than three decades.
Photos uncovered by The Sun show the 1924 home's extravagant luxurious interior, which featured her signature leopard room and spiral staircase draped by a red carpet.
But the beauty inside the home was a stark contrast to the reality unfolding outside Thursday afternoon, when 5th and Madison avenues were shut down while officials removed Ms Trump's body.
Angelo Colavito, who works as a private security guard in the building across the street, was one of the few people who saw the gloomy scene.
“I was saddened seeing the truck back up into her building," Colavito said Friday morning.
"The police did their jobs and covered up with the umbrellas and everything, but it was tough. I’ll never see or talk to her again.”
Colavito got to know Ms Trump over the last eight years while he was working security.
"When l first learned who that was, the last name Trump is a little intimidating. You want to leave her alone, but she was very pleasant and always talked to me," he said.

"Small talk kind of stuff. I walked her across the street. I helped her get over this puddle," said Colavito, pointing the creek flowing down the street from road work.
"If she didn’t have the last name, you would never know it. She was a sweet, wonderful woman. If she was having a bad day, you would never know it.”
