Ex-Playboy Model Reaches Settlement to Discuss Alleged Affair With Trump

When news got out that McDougal was going to share the story of her alleged affair with Trump, the publisher acquired the rights to the story.

In August 2016, AMI - a company that owns The National Enquirer - paid for the rights to McDougal's story about her alleged affair with Trump. The Trump-allied tabloid then buried the story as part of several hush agreements over allegations against Trump.

In an interview with CNN that aired last month, McDougal said she was in love with Trump and the affair started not long after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron.

McDougal's settlement with AMI says that while she releases all claims against the tabloid company, she does not release any claims that she "has or may have" against Cohen and Davidson.

McDougal's attorney Peter Stris also issued a statement Wednesday: "We are glad that AMI has agreed to a settlement that restores Karen's life rights to her, and makes right the wrongs that had been perpetrated against her. She got out of the contract, gets the life rights back and owes A.M.I. nothing more".

Saudi Arabia to open first cinema in 35 years
Many Saudis have rejoiced at the end of the cinema ban, sharing praise and pictures of Prince Mohammed on social media. Information Minister Awwad al-Awwad told Reuters on Wednesday that they would be similar to cinemas around the world.

Under the settlement agreement, McDougal can keep the $150,000 she was paid and AMI has the rights to up to $75,000 for any future profits from her story about the relationship. "Today, I'm doing my victory dance". The details of how Cohen may have influenced McDougal is now unknown, but the ongoing federal investigation into his business may shed light on the issue in the future.

AMI ended up settling with McDougal, allowing her to spill the beans publicly and to keep her $150,000. However, it states that neither Davidson nor Cohen have been all released, also this McDougal may opt to file actions. Both McDougal and AMI consent to pay for their own attorney fees as well as expenses. A spokesman for Mr. Davidson has said the lawyer "fulfilled his obligations and zealously advocated for Ms. McDougal". Prior to the raid, McDougal's attorney answered the motion to dismiss the case with a request to begin pretrial discovery which would have compelled AMI to turn over records, emails, and other materials pertaining to the agreement with McDougal.

AMI has said McDougal was permitted to speak about her relationship with Trump in response to "legitimate press inquiries".

That's in addition to whatever may come up in the FBI's investigation of Michael Cohen.

Meanwhile, as reported by The Washington Post, Men's Journal, another publication owned by the American Media Inc., is set to feature the Karen McDougal on its September 2018 cover.
