Ex-Playboy Model Sues to Break Silence on Alleged Trump Affair

Ex-Playboy Model Sues to Break Silence on Alleged Trump Affair

President Trump is at the center of two more lawsuits related to allegations of relationships with women before he entered politics.

'She wrote articles and collected money for them, ' the source said of the fitness columns she authored for American Media.

A NY state judge on Tuesday denied a bid by Trump to toss out a defamation lawsuit by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on NBC's "The Apprentice", raising the prospect that he might have to answer questions about his behaviour in court.

The complaint from McDougal said the agreement permits her to "respond to "legitimate press inquiries" about her relationship with Mr. Trump", but alleges the company warns her to say nothing when contacted by the media and has threatened her with "financial ruin".

A former Playboy model who said she had an affair with US President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit in California to release her from a legal agreement requiring her to stay silent. "AMI lied to me, made me empty promises, and repeatedly intimidated and manipulated me", she said in a statement. "I want Mr. Trump to know that I will still be willing to dismiss my case against him - immediately - for no monetary compensation if he would simply retract his false and defamatory statements about me and acknowledge that I told the truth about him", Zervos said during a press conference previous year.

A month ago, a watchdog group asked the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission to investigate the alleged six-figure payment to McDougal.




In a company statement provided to USA TODAY, AMI contends that McDougal has been allowed to speak about her relationship with Trump since 2016. But the company and her own attorney failed to tell her that the contract didn't oblige AMI to run any of her columns.

The company said it was "proud of Karen McDougal and our work with her".

A source close to Davidson said the lawyer was interested in speaking out on McDougal's filing, adding that his previous stint as her lawyer limits him in doing so. "Her lawsuit is the first time AMI has learned of her desire to go a different direction".

McDougal is asking the court to declare the agreement null and void.

Also on Tuesday, a NY court ruled that Zervos, the former Apprentice contestant, would be allowed to move forward with a defamation suit against the president. Zevros accused Trump of defaming her by describing her claims as "total lies".

McDougal apparently was paid $150,000 while Clifford was given $130,000 to shut up about Trump's extramarital affairs. Judge Jennifer Schecter of the Manhattan Supreme Court dismissed the argument made by Trump's counsel that a state court has no jurisdiction over a sitting president. She argued that the non-disclosure agreement she signed was invalid because it was never signed by Trump himself. Cohen has acknowledged arranging to pay to silence another woman, porn star Stormy Daniels.
