Former Playboy Model Will Be Allowed to Speak About Her Alleged Affair with Trump: NYT
Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model who says she had an affair with President Donald Trump, will now be allowed to speak publicly about her story, the New York Times reported Wednesday.
Reporter Jim Rutenberg said that American Media Inc., which owns the National Enquirer, will let McDougal out of the contract she signed that required her to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with the president.
McDougal had sued the company over the agreement. She initially sold her story to AMI for $150,000, but it never published her claims. As part of a settlement, the company is entitled to as much as $75,000 of any profit she makes off her story.
Trump has denied McDougal's accusations.
The former Playboy model is not the only one who has made such claims about the president. Stephanie Clifford, better known as porn actor and director Stormy Daniels, is currently suing over a hush money agreement drafted by president's attorney Michael Cohen. Clifford also says she had an affair with the president.
Some argue that "hush money" payments could violate campaign finance laws if they were made to boost Trump's electoral chances.
