Last year, The Daily Mail republished a rumor from Slovenian tabloid Suzy that insinuated that Melania Trump may have rented her vagine out to men while trying to make it as a model. The modeling agency that Melania was signed to in the 1990s was allegedly also a leased cooch emporium. Suzy’s article claimed that some of the models also worked as call girls. Well, when they go low, Melania goes to her lawyers and gets money.
Melania’s lawyers originally filed a $150 million lawsuit against The Daily Mail in Maryland, but that lawsuit was thrown out because the judge couldn’t find a connection between the state and The Daily Mail. So Melania’s lawyers refiled the lawsuit in New York a couple of months ago. Melania won’t have to furiously search for the perfect Michelle Obama speech to repeat on the stand while testifying in front of a jury, because the lawsuit was settled. The Daily Mail admitted they were in the wrong and spit up an apology to Melania and that apology didn’t end with: “We’re sorry for calling you a hooker, because everyone knows you’re more of a gold digger!” I thought I knew you, Daily Mail.
In her lawsuit, Melania’s lawyers used vague language to basically say that The Daily Mail is fucking with her chance to milk the role of FLOTUS of as many millions as possibly. The lawsuit originally stated that the escort allegations were hurting her chance to build “multimillion dollar business relationships” while being “one of the most photographed women in the world.” That part was later taken out by her lawyers.
Reuters reports that Melania settled with The Daily Mail for around $3 million, including legal fees. Others are saying she settled for $2.9 million. The Daily Mail pulled the article and gave this apology on their site:
The Mail Online website and the Daily Mail newspaper published an article on 20th August 2016 about Melania Trump which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model, and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling. The article included statements that Mrs. Trump denied the allegations and Paulo Zampolli, who ran the modelling agency, also denied the allegations, and the article also stated that there was no evidence to support the allegations. The article also claimed that Mr and Mrs Trump may have met three years before they actually met, and “staged” their actual meeting as a “ruse.”
We accept that these allegations about Mrs Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them. We apologise to Mrs Trump for any distress that our publication caused her. To settle Mrs Trump’s two lawsuits against us, we have agreed to pay her damages and costs.
Melania also settled a similar lawsuit with a blogger in Maryland who wrote in a post that she was afraid that johns from her pussy peddling days were going to tell-all to the media. They settled in February for an “undisclosed sum.”
I do love The Daily Mail’s apology. They pulled the story, but then pretty much repeated the rumors in their apology. It’s as if they said, “We are sorry for insinuating that Melania Trump fucked several men for money,” before pulling their mouth away from the mic and whispering to the audience, “We’re so not sorry and we’re so not sorry that we’re repeating it again.”
