Former Playboy Model Sues Company That Didn't Publish Affair With Donald Trump

Stormy was also held into a non-disclosure agreement but has seemingly gotten ahead of Karen in her legal battle as she's set to tell her side of the story on 60 Minutes this Sunday.

Karen McDougal launched the suit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against American Media Inc., owner of The National Enquirer, saying A.M.I. shelled out $150,000 to keep her quiet, The New York Times reported.

Zervos claims Trump kissed her twice on the lips during a lunch meeting in his NY office in 2007 and, while in Beverly Hills, she alleges he kissed her aggressively and touched her breast. The details are quite startling, so here are the biggest bombshells in the complaint.

The New Yorker published an article last month that referenced an eight-page document McDougal wrote about the alleged affair, which a friend provided to the magazine and McDougal confirmed. She was told "the rights to publish her story were worth millions", according to the lawsuit.

Many of us have had similar experiences when involved in motor vehicle accidents, the feeling that "it all happened so quickly". Biesty said his agency is waiting for a federal investigation by safety regulators to conclude before drawing any conclusions.

McDougal claims in her lawsuit that Cohen was more involved in contract negotiations than Pecker and American Media have let on. When Mr. Trump became the presumptive nominee in 2016, McDougal's name surfaced online, leading her to hire Davidson as her attorney. This would be the story of former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, who was recently the subject of a Ronan Farrow investigative report in the New Yorker. According to the lawsuit, AMI made the deal with McDougal to squash the story, a practice known as "catch and kill". The final amount ended up being just $150,000.

The Times reported last month that Davidson sent Cohen an email on August 5, 2016, asking him to call. She additionally accused her own lawyer at the time of joining their efforts to mislead her about the nature of the deal.

She seeks a declaration voiding her agreement with American Media. The 2016 agreement did not require the Enquirer to run the story but effectively muted McDougal on the matter. McDougal alleges that they talked about this over dinner, where they shared "multiple bottles of wine" and he "falsely told her this was standard in the industry".

Lawyers are restricted by ethics laws when it comes to how big of a percentage they can take from their clients' settlements, but it's unclear who those other parties were. She is trying to raise money via a crowdfunded website to pay for her legal expenses as she tries to speak out, even offering to return the money she was originally paid.

Through efforts including the collusion of her own lawyer, AMI has consistently deceived and manipulated Ms. McDougal through an illegitimate contract.

McDougal is arguing that the contract is invalid and wants to move forward with her life, the email states.

Representatives of American Media didn't immediately respond to requests for comment on the lawsuit.
