Former Playboy sues after her alleged affair with Trump wasn't published

Karen Mc Dougal and Donald Trump

The White House has declined to say whether Trump knew about Cohen's $130,000 arrangement with Daniels, though the notion that Trump would have been unaware strains credulity.

The lawsuit goes on to say that Davidson himself "had a close working relationship with Donald Trump's personal attorney and "fixer", Michael Cohen", who was secretly involved in the negotiations.

"A quarter billion dollar company posing as a media organization systematically intimidated and silenced Karen McDougal in order to achieve its political and financial ends, and she will no longer be quiet", Peter Stris, Founding Partner Stris & Maher, said.

A former Playboy Playmate of the Year said the owner of the National Enquirer tricked her into signing a contract that forced her to be silent about an alleged affair she had with Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007.

The lawsuit claims McDougal was not told AMI had no obligation to run articles she had written or that they were simultaneously negotiating deals to kill other negative stories about Mr. Trump, and that his representatives received constant updates throughout the negotiations past year.

Zervos accuses him of sexual harassment, and the go-ahead to proceed in the case raises the possibility of Trump being forced to answer questions by her lawyers about his behavior toward her and other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. Trump's wife Melania Trump gave birth to the president's youngest son Barron in 2006.

Howard spent several hours pressing McDougal on the details of her story. Trump is counter-suing Daniels for $20 million - the amount his lawyers say is the number of times she broke the agreement. Instead, she claims her story was buried. and she didn't get the publicity she was promised.

American Media has since published McDougal's picture on one cover and featured her in about two dozen columns, the Times reported. McDougal then hired entertainment lawyer Davidson to represent her interests. Unknown to Ms. McDougal, Mr. Davidson was working closely with representatives for Mr. Trump while pretending to advocate on her behalf.

David Hoffman, a contract-law specialist at the University of Pennsylvania Law School who reviewed Daniels's nondisclosure agreement at The Fix's request, said that "when you read this contract, it's pretty clear that this isn't the first time they've [Trump's team] had an agreement, which is why there are so many weird clauses in there about paternity and about videotape". But, the company did not run any stories on the story - a tactic The New Yorker notes media outlets commonly use to kill a story.

McDougal claims to have flown from Arizona to LA where she was interviewed for hours by AMI CEO Dylan Howard about the alleged affair.
