The former Playboy model Karen McDougal has reached an agreement on Wednesday with tabloid publisher American Media Inc that will allow her to speak freely about an affair she alleges she had with President Donald Trump. McDougal filed suit in California last month seeking to be released from a deal reached in 2016 with AMI, publisher of the National Enquirer, that gave the company exclusive rights to her story in exchange for $150,000.
“AMI is pleased that we reached an amicable resolution with Ms McDougal today that provides both sides what they wanted as a result,” the company said in a statement. Representatives for McDougal did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Under the deal, AMI said it would have the right to receive up to $75,000 of any future profits from the sale of her story about the alleged 10-month affair, which she says started in 2006.
McDougal would also appear on the September 2018 cover of Men’s Journal magazine, which would include a feature-length article about her, the company said. In an interview with CNN that aired last month, McDougal said she had been in love with Trump and the affair started not long after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron.
