Liz Smith, who chronicled the gossip among New York City's rich and scandalous for 60 years and played a key role in the high-profile divorce between Donald and Ivana Trump, has died, the New York Post, her former employer, said.

Literary agent Joni Evans confirmed the news to the Associated Press on Sunday saying that her death was the result of "natural causes".

Smith told the New York Times in 2014 that her love of movies began when she was six or seven and that she never wanted to do anything else.

Her famed hit its stride when she joined New York Daily News. Even in the ruthless world of gossip, though, those who came after her paid their respects.
