First lady Melania Trump will not travel with President Trump to the G7 Summit later this week or the meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12.

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, told ABC News that Melania Trump would not join the president for either event. She attended last year's G7 Summit in Italy.

The Hill has reached out to the first lady's office for comment.

The first lady has been absent from the public eye since May 19, when she returned to the White House five days after undergoing a procedure for a benign kidney condition.

The first lady and President Trump have at various times called the procedure a success and indicated she is feeling well. However, she has not been seen in public since a few days before the procedure and did not join the president on his weekend trip to Camp David.

The White House and first lady's office have not offered an explanation for her absence, but Melania Trump criticized the media last week for speculating on her whereabouts.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing," she tweeted. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

Leaders from the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan and the European Union will convene in Quebec on Friday and Saturday for the G7 Summit.

President Trump will then travel to Singapore for a June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The anticipated summit -- which Trump initially canceled before reversing course -- comes as the U.S. pushes for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
