Melania Trump accepts damages after Daily Mail slur

By Cathy Gordon

Donald Trump's wife Melania has accepted damages and an apology at the High Court in London over allegations about her work as a professional model.

The action was against Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Mail.

Mr Justice Nicol was told that an article published in the newspaper in August last year "included false and defamatory claims" about her "which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model, and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modelling". The total payment of damages and costs is believed to come to less than £2.4m.
