Former Playboy model ready to sell affair with Trump

Por MRod

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal announced on Wednesday that she has reached a legal agreement to break the confidentiality contract that prevented her from telling the media about a supposed affair with Donald Trump. The agreement means McDougal can now sell her story. Therefore, the name of the president of the United States will continue to make headlines.

The publishing group American Media Inc.(AMI) paid McDougal $ 150,000 that summer to take the exclusivity of publishing a sexual affair that the model says she had with Trump in 2007. AMI is the editor of The National Enquirer, a gossip tabloid. The president of AMI is David Pecker, friend of Donald Trump and fervent supporter of the president. As you may guess, the story was never published.

The agreement gave AMI the exclusivity of the story, so McDougal would be legally exposed if she told her issue elsewhere. In addition, other parts of the agreement, such as the publication of a column of advice by McDougal and her presence on a cover, were also not met. McDougal is convinced that this was an operation to hunt and kill, according to the journalistic slang of the United States, that is, to buy a story to bury it.

Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, participated in the negotiations for the exclusivity agreement, according to McDougal. McDougal denounced the exclusivity agreement in a court in Los Angeles following another similar complaint, filed by porn actress Stormy Daniels, to break a confidentiality agreement that prevents her from talking about another sexual adventure with Trump.

Both complaints served for the public to see for the first time what are the confidentiality contracts with which powerful men are protected from the publicity of their sexual affairs. The friendly settlement announced on Wednesday puts an end to McDougal's lawsuit. According to the signed terms, AMI will receive 10% of the profits obtained by McDougal for selling her history, with a limit of $ 75,000. The model will be the cover of Men's Journal, a magazine of the group, and will also publish the columns of fitness tips that they promised in their day. McDougal does not have to return the $ 150,000. The case sets a precedent in the face of Stormy Daniels' claim. The main danger of these two demands was that the judges want to clarify the facts (the president denies the extramarital affairs, which happened when he had been married to Melania Trump for one year and his son was just months old) and called to testify Trump.

AMI's decision to reach an agreement, apparently very favorable to McDougal, comes a week after the FBI searched the offices and home of Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer and the person allegedly behind the negotiation to silence the model. In that registry, according to sources of the investigation cited by the American media, the agents were looking for documentation regarding the payments to these two women for their silence. Those payments are under suspicion because, having the intention of favoring Trump's image as a candidate, they can be considered illegal donations to the electoral campaign.
