Ex-Playboy Model Sues for Right to Speak About Alleged Trump Affair

In papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court on March 20 and EXCLUSIVELY obtained by HollywoodLife.com, her legal team alleges that the tycoon and his campaign worked with AMI, the parent company of The National Enquirer, to keep her story from becoming public. Farrow relayed how McDougal had sold her account of an alleged 9-month affair with Trump to American Media, Inc.

McDougal also said she's been asked by BuzzFeed Inc.to preserve documents for a defamation lawsuit filed by Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen against the news website. She claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 after she met him while he was filming an episode of "The Apprentice" at the Playboy Mansion.

American Media publishes The National Enquirer. McDougal says Trump did not want to leave a paper trail of their meet ups. It seemed more plausible that Trump would not have known about the $150,000 deal between McDougal and American Media, but now the charge that Cohen was involved in that nondisclosure agreement, too, makes it even harder to imagine that the president had no idea what was being done on his behalf.

But when she began talking to ABC News, AMI returned to her with the $150,000 payment for the goal of buying her story, "but it would not publish the story" because of Pecker's relationship with Trump, according to the lawsuit.

McDougal, who grew up in Sawyer, MI and lived in the state until the late 1990s when her modeling career took off. In exchange, she thought A.M.I. would be publishing a monthly column for her as well as other monthly pieces in their various publications.


McDougal realized that she's been duped just before election day in 2016, when the Wall Street Journal wrote about her AMI contract. But several days later, the media company declined to buy it, the complaint reads, and "Mr. Davidson revealed that, in fact, there was no money in escrow". Though the agreement explicitly mentioned "a monthly column" on aging and fitness for OK! and Star, and "four posts each month" on Radar Online, it only gave American Media "the right" to print them.

Emails sent to the Trump Organization and Cohen seeking comment received no response by press time.

The news of McDougal's suit came as NY judge allowed a defamation case brought by Summer Zervos, who has accused Trump of sexual assault, to move forward by denying a defense motion to dismiss the case. Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, sued to break away from a $130,000 "hush" agreement with Trump's lawyer and a third-party limited liability company created to broker that deal, according to a lawsuit also filed in Los Angeles.

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