Melania Trump Has Accepted Libel Damages From the Daily Mail for $2.9 Million
The Daily Mail settled with Trump for $2.9 million
The newspaper had reported allegations that Trump once worked as an escort, but later retracted its article.
Trump had filed suit in the U.K.’s High Court seeking damages of $150 million, but Reuters reported that the final settlement was worth less than $3 million — CNN has the number at $2.9 million.
The Mail published an apology on its web site admitting that it had republished allegations that she “provided services beyond simply modeling.”
“We accept that these allegations about Mrs Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them. We apologize to Mrs Trump for any distress that our publication caused her.”
