Daily Mail Pays Melania Trump $2.9 Million To Settle Lawsuit Over Modeling Claims

Britain's Daily Mail said Wednesday it agreed to pay First Lady Melania Trump $2.9 million in damages (according to the WSJ) and issue an apology after it published an article saying the U.S. First Lady had offered "services beyond simply modeling" when working as a model in the 1990s. The Daily Mail and its Mail Online website said in a statement that it accepts the allegations it published in a 2016 article are “not true” and apologized for the distress the article caused.

Trump's wife had sued the publisher of the Daily Mail in Britain and also filed a $150 million (120 million pound) lawsuit against it in New York, claiming the article had cost her millions of dollars in potential business.  The Daily Mail, which runs what it calls the world's largest English-language newspaper website, apologized for the article on Wednesday and issued a retraction on its home page.

"An article on 20th August 2016 about Melania Trump... questioned the nature of her work as a professional model, and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modeling," publisher Associated Newspapers said.

"We accept that these allegations about Mrs Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them .... we have agreed to pay her damages and costs."

According to Reuters, at the High Court in London, Trump's lawyer said the article, headlined "Racy photos and troubling questions about his wife's past that could derail Trump", was published as a two-page spread and accompanied by an old photo of Melania Trump standing naked with her front against a wall but looking back at the camera. "Readers of the newspaper that day could not fail to miss the article", John Kelly told the court. "The article included false and defamatory claims about the claimant which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model.

"The suggestion that such allegations even merit investigation is deeply offensive and has caused a great deal of upset and distress to the claimant," he said.

Trump probably found Melania on one of those eastern European buy-a-wife sites. There’s no way she’d settle down with that orange freak of her own accord.

You have the best job there is. Spewing shit at different web sites.

your artistic rendition of a lobotomized (US-D) here went a bit too far, imho

Melania Trump was already working as a model (for "Elite", note) in NY before she met Donald Trump

I still love looking at Donald's harem of gorgeous ladies. Dems only have thick lesbos and cotton pickers.

Too bad they're all trannies and you'll feel like cutting your dick off when that becomes common knowledge...

They're Ukropistani Right Sector savages, that did PropOrNot, aren't they? Well that's what everyone was told ....

Unlike you, you girly little fucktard faggot, Trump is an Alpha male.  He''s rich, generous, powerful, and has a really keen sense of humor. 

As soon as she met him,  she knew he would be a great father to any children they might have. She looks after her own child without nannies. I think they are a great couple. 

Stop looking at buy a wife sites. Surely you're not that obnoxious you've  gotta go looking online for a victim.

"one of thise Eastern European buy a *slave* sites"

Well that's pretty similar to how they found you and the other operatives here isn't it? ;)

The fact that the Daily Mail has readership is a sign we may be past the point of no return.

She either continues the plastic surgery or starts lookin' like the man she really is.

Lol ... y'all g'head and downhate me for touching yourself while looking at 'her' when you shoulda known better. You know it's a man.

LOL. Don't worry - you're not gay ... you were just deceived.

You all know damn well she probably escorted UTR (under the radar) as what was said online.

It's not what you think you know... It's what you can prove. 

And we all know damn well that you probably couldn't scratch enough dough together to be in a position to share proof of your claim. (Your Kleenex fantasies don't count). 

And just because your mum was a whore doesn't mean every woman is.

"It's not what you think you know... It's what you can prove."

Right there. Anything else and they call it "libel."

She was kind to "settle." The faster she settles it, the faster the damage can heal. They clearly did not have shit or they would not settle. If they could prove it the lawsuit would have been great press for them, they would sell rags left and right.

I hate to say this Possum but we don't know what are mothers where when they where younger.  Most women can and may have been whores, but in our society we are told to ignore and glorify our women and think of them as queens and not even our mom could be a whore.  You know the same way women are supposed to prop up men and show that they are kings when in reality most are afraid of any man being around their woman and are jealous and believe that they have bought the pussy and in reality they didn't buy anything.

Do your own research on the UTR lifestyle and you will see that it's not that far a possibility with her.  I've known some girls that where doing this under the radar and the stories they told.  Hell one girl always flew out on the weekends twice a month and she  had 2 guys she saw and she was making major bank.  She wouldn't tell me all the way how much but you could tell from what she had and where she lived.

Not the first, just the first in eight years. That wookie was hung too well for the title.

To the MSM it is worth 3 million to get to infer the first lady is a whore. Bastards.

Burr and Hamilton said worse of each others concubines, they settled it out of court with Hamilton admitting he "should have aimed lower" right before he expired.

Can you imagine the "outrage" if any paper had published anything even partially (and truthfully) negative about the wookie?

The daily mail could have written some news on the size of the wookies dick or something like that, and make millions in sales...

but hey, they are all on the tribe side.

Stan522's picture

Actually, they wrote articles and published them about obama and the dem's that no US paper would ever dream of doing. Granted, they made shit up too......

wmbz's picture

Chump change, I am sure it was worth it to the snaggle toothed bastards. Whatever it takes to get some attention.

Now if it were Obozo's bitch that would be horrible, and rayciss.

Obozo was the Wookies bitch. That is basic biology.

The presstitutes accusing Melania of being prostitute...irony much?

Ghordius's picture

yes. except that the people "working" at the British Daily Mail can't be called presstitutes

you see, that rag is not part of "the press". they really don't do... journalism. just sensationalism... and lurid lies

my favourites are when they whip up "news" about killer germs on all EUR coins and notes

or their newest theories about Brexit. nope, the typical Daily Mail reader seems not to care, so far

Ha ha ha!!!
Fuck you Daily Mail! What goddamned business is it of yours anyway, you pasty, bloated, English codfish.
To put it in your own vernacular, BUGGER OFF!!!

Stan522's picture

Could you imagine if that paper wrote disparaging articles like this about any democrat woman like.... Michele....?

Never mind..... that's an absurd question.....

UndertheDRADIS's picture

The easiest way to know that Michele Obama was nothing special in the looks department was that no one heard black men going on and on about how hot/beautiful/smoking she was. Lots of white leftists claiming she was so wonderful and classy and gorgeous. The answer to your question would involve endless accusations of Be All Rayciss an' Sheeeeeit.

Her name is Melania .... (not melancholy melanoma) .... she's pure honey .... actually, I think that's what her name means .... miel, melody, melifluous, mellow ?

Good job by these libtard news outlets when shit like this happens. Such morons.

chimchim's picture

Really scary that those first few posters trashed Melanie.
A "man", wtf?
She is without a doubt the hottest FL ever. Icing on the cake for us red blooded types.
SMOOOOOKIN HOT!

Jack Offelday's picture

Liberals are butthurt because the 1st lady is actually a woman again.

UndertheDRADIS's picture

I wonder what the reaction from the commies would have been if anyone had implied that the former First Wookie had been a whore.

bardot63's picture

Everyone I know implied she is a whore.  she'd have to sue the whole world, and she'd lose.

When is the first White House ball?  Invite the Obamas!

Savvy's picture

They called her a whore for no other reason than she's Trump's wife. Now she should give that money to a legal fund that defends people who don't have the resources she has.

Calculus99's picture

The Daily Mail is such a spiteful rag.

50% fake news and the other 50% hypocritical. 

Ghordius's picture

but... but... they support the hardest of all Brexits

not that they really know what they mean with that, but hey, they are patriots, in pure red, white and blue
