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

The developments increased legal pressure on Trump who during and after the 2016 presidential campaign was accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women allegations he denied

Former Playboy Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal, 46, has outright claimed in new court papers that she had a 10 month affair with President Donald Trump, 71, from 2006 through 2007, while he was married to current wife Melania, 47.

"The lawsuit filed today aims to restore [McDougal's] right to her own voice", McDougal's new lawyer, Peter K. Stris, said in a statement to the New York Times.

A corporate spokesman for American Media Inc. provided a statement to CNN in response to the suit, saying McDougal "has been free to respond to press inquiries about her relationship with President Trump since 2016" and that the company had not "silenced" her. "The lawsuit is alleging that Miss McDougal's prior lawyer was not acting in her best interest and conspired or colluded with the Trump team, so to speak", ABC News legal analyst Dana Cole said. The fitness model claims that AMI then turned around and wanted to purchase her story about her alleged affair with Trump after all.

Porn star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, said in a lawsuit filed March 6 that her "hush agreement" with Trump is invalid.

Actor Jim Carrey Blasted Over Painting that Resembles Huckabee Sanders
He was one of the top actors of the 1990s, headlining hits like " Liar, Liar ", " The Mask ", " Dumb and Dumber ", and much more. Many other Twitter uses responded to Carrey's post by defending Sanders, and criticizing Carrey for personally attacking her.

Karen McDougal believes she was part of a "catch and kill" practice when she negotiated terms of her agreement with A.M.I.in 2016.

Zervos accuses him of sexual harassment, and the go-ahead to proceed in the case raises the possibility of Trump being forced to answer questions by her lawyers about his behavior toward her and other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

McDougal became the second woman this month to challenge efforts by associates of Trump's to block them during the presidential campaign from talking about alleged past extramarital relationships with the real estate developer-turned-president.

On Tuesday, Karen McDougal (above) filed a lawsuit against American Media Inc.

Bermuda-Missing US Student,4th Ld-Writethru, US
A Philadelphia college freshman went missing in Bermuda last weekend while traveling with his school rugby team. Head rugby coach Dan Yarusso told FOX29 he would stay in Bermuda to continue the search for Dombroski.

McDougal realized that she's been duped just before election day in 2016, when the Wall Street Journal wrote about her AMI contract. McDougal now claims that AMI is contacting her, citing breach of contract and damages, if any more information is released. The pair even once hired the same Los Angeles lawyer, Keith Davidson, who's known to take on clients who sell their stories to tabloids.

"AMI entered into the agreement with Ms. McDougal in coordination with Michael Cohen, an agent of the Trump campaign, and for the objective of influencing the 2016 presidential election", the suit alleges.

McDougal's lawsuit follows a similar legal fight from Daniels, whose highly anticipated interview on 60 Minutes about her supposed affair with the president will air this weekend. They promised instead to run columns, articles and at least two covers featuring McDougal and pushed her to sign the deal without delay.

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.

Stormy Daniels threatened with $20m in damages by Trump attorney
Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen , are trying to get the lawsuit by Daniels transferred to federal court. Clifford quiet during the presidential campaign, which culminated in the deal for her silence in October 2016.
