Daily Mail settles Melania Trump lawsuit

Evan Vucci / AP

The Daily Mail newspaper is paying Melania Trump $2.9 million for damages after it published a story in August with the recycled allegation that she "provided services beyond simply modeling" in the 1990s. In a statement, The Daily Mail wrote that they "accept that these allegations about Mrs Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them," adding:

QuoteWe apologise to Mrs Trump for any distress that our publication caused her.

Melania pursued two lawsuits against the paper, one in the U.S. and one in the U.K.
