Daily Mail Agrees To Pay Damages To Melania Trump Over Defaming Article
The publishers of the Daily Mail and MailOnline have agreed to pay damages to US First Lady Melania Trump over false claims about her work as a professional model.
The newspaper and website have agreed to publish a retraction and apology to the First Lady.
Independent UK reports the agreed statement was read out at the Royal Courts of Justice on behalf of both parties.
The statement said the article published in a double page spread last summer included “false and defamatory claims about [Mrs Trump] which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model and republished allegations that she provides services beyond simply modelling”.
