First Lady Melania Trump has won a “substantial” amount of money in a lawsuit settlement against a blogger that wrote an article claiming she had worked as a prostitute.
nypost.com reports: Melania Trump has won a “substantial” amount of money in a settlement with Maryland blogger who wrote about claims that she had once worked as a prostitute.
“The First Lady of the United States has settled her lawsuit against Webster Griffin Tarpley of Maryland,” said Matthew Blackett, one of Mrs. Trump’s attorneys.
“Mr. Tarpley has issued the attached retraction and apology to Mrs. Trump and her family, and agreed to pay her a substantial sum as a settlement,”
Blackett said in a statement. Blackett also provided The Post with a copy of the 71-year-old Gaithersburg, MD, resident’s apology.
“I posted an article on August 2, 2016 about Melania Trump that was replete with false and defamatory statements about her. I had no legitimate factual basis to make these false statements and I fully retract them,” it reads.
Tarpley did not return messages about the settlement, but his attorney confirmed the agreement. The mea culpa continues, “I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements.”
