Melania Trump is defending her name!
On Monday, the 46-year-old’s lawyer announced she’s suing multiple media outlets for citing a story that claims her former modeling agency secretly doubled as an escort service!
Daily Mail, Politico, and other sites recently referenced an article that ran in Slovenia’s Suzy magazine, that alleged:
“On the one hand they [the girls] pretended to be models, but they principally earned money as elite escorts. They even had two composite cards (presentation cards held by each model) ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ with two photos and basic information such as measurements, eye and hair colour, and agency details. One composite card was for the modelling business, and the other one for the sex business, as it stated whether they prefer the older men and described their abilities in the bedroom.”
And now, the Slovenia native is firing back at the websites that ran the story. Her attorney, Charles Harder, revealed Donald Trump‘s wife is threatening to sue in a statement, saying:
“Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an ‘escort’ in the 1990s.”
“All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency.”
Charles told CNN that notices have been sent to Daily Mail, The Week, Politico, Inquisitr, Tarpley, Before It’s News, Liberal America, LawNewz, Winning Democrats, and Bipartisan Report.
Since the lawsuits haven’t yet been filed, putting the sites “on notice” gives them the chance to retract their stories in order to avoid legal consequences.
