The New York Times is reporting that former Playboy model Karen McDougal has reached a settlement agreement with American Media Inc. to let her out of a contract that silenced her from telling her story about an alleged affair she had with President Trump.

The details: The settlement gives American Media "the right to up to $75,000 of any future profits" her story generates, per the Times, adding that McDougal is allowed to keep the $150,000 payment she received. Her lawyer, Peter Stris, told the Times the settlement is a "total win."
