Melania Trump is suing the publisher of the Daily Mail for $150 million for running a “tremendously damaging” article that alleged she once worked at an escort service in the 1990s.
The former model and businesswoman who is married to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump filed a lawsuit on Thursday in a Maryland court. According to the suit, the articles about Trump “sull[ied] her good name and accus[ed] her of criminal, immoral conduct.” Trump is also suing a Maryland blogger, Webster Tarpley.
The Daily Mail removed the article from its website, Mail Online, late on Thursday, and published a retraction.
