Melania Trump charged media for saying she was an escort
Melania Trump, the wife of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, on Thursday sued two media outlets daily mail and US blogger that alleged she was an escort in the 1990s. Melania Trump, an ex-model of Slovenian origin, was seeking damages to the tune of $150 million. “These defendants made several statements about Mrs Trump that are 100% false and tremendously damaging to her personal and professional reputation,” said her attorney Charles Harder.
Melania Trump is 24 years younger than her billionaire husband. She is Donald Trump’s third wife and the mother of their young son Barron. Harder specializes in cases that involve privacy protection and defamation. The decision caused Gawker to shutter its flagship website, after the court order drove the company to bankruptcy.
