This post has been updated.

Melania Trump’s professional website has disappeared from the Internet following questions about whether Trump actually earned a college degree, according to the Huffington Post.

Her website, MelaniaTrump.com, was no longer accessible as of Wednesday afternoon, the Huffington Post reported. The URL now redirects to the website for the Trump Organization.

The website’s removal comes after questions about whether Trump earned a “a degree in design and architecture at University in Slovenia,” as her official biography claimed.

As the Huffington Post noted last week, that may not be accurate. She dropped out of the University of Ljubljana after a year, according to a biography on Trump written by Slovenian journalists Bojan Pozar and Igor Omerza. And as Julia Ioffe reported in GQ, “Melania decamped to Milan after her first year of college, effectively dropping out.”

Melania Trump offered a brief statement on Twitter Thursday afternoon explaining that the website was removed because it no longer aligns with her “business and professional interests.”
