Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model claimed that she was having an affair with the American president Donald Trump, in a lawsuit started so that her story can do. She drags the company to the court that the rights to her story had been bought, but there is no word about published. That message, the newspaper New York Times.
McDougal continues, the parent company of the newspaper National Enquirer, that her $ 150,000 paid for the exclusive rights to her story. That was, however, never published, which would fit within the practice of “catch and kill”. With this technique, buried tabloids stories to the person about whom they are going to as a favor to grant. David Pecker, the chairman of the publisher of the Enquirer, AMI, described Trump earlier as a “personal friend”.
The “playmate” declared in February in The New Yorker that they Trump met at a party in the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in June 2006, and shortly afterwards an affair with him began, that nine months. They also stated that they, in 2016, was agreed upon for the exclusive rights to her story to sell, but that they regretted.
The disclosures followed just days after the Wall Street Journal reported that the lawyer of Trump 130.000 dollar paid to porn star Stephanie Clifford (“Stormy Daniels”) to keep quiet about an alleged sexual adventures with the president in July 2006. They also started earlier this month in a lawsuit.
Trump denied the affairs. Both women say that the relationship with mutual consent.
