According to recent reports, First lady Melania Trump has reached a court settlement with a Slovenian magazine regarding the infamous release of photos of Melania back from her modeling days.
In 2016, as then-candidate Donald Trump was running for president, ‘The Suzy’ released a piece on Melania, saying she worked for a modeling agency which also provided “elite escort” services.
Melania’s attorney, Natasa Pirc Musar said the magazine settled with the First lady, in what seems to be an agreement involving both an apology and a cash payout.
As a matter of fact, the magazine said in their apology that their goal was not to “hurt and offend” Trump.
The modeling agency wanted to paint a picture of Melania Trump “ as if she conducted the escort job,” the statement explained.
The magazine finally wrote in their apology they had no knowledge or proof that Melania actually worked as an escort.
ALong with the public apology, the Trumps received a cash compensation as well, reports suggest.
Musar noted the settlement works well in Melania’s favor.
“The fact that the case is closed is proof that even in the future Mrs. Trump will not allow insults and lies on her account and will always react to protect her rights and interests,” the attorney said.
Another lawsuit of the same background was also filed, in which Trump’s attorneys went after a U.K. newspaper questioned Melania’s modeling days as such.
Melania Trump, who worked as a model in 1996, was born in Slovenia.
Just two years after arriving in the U.S., Melania met Donald at a VIP party in New York.
Melania’s background seemed to be a thorn in everyone’s eyes, especially when it came to her modeling career. For this, she faced constant scrutiny on social media and otherwise.
“Melania was one of the most successful models and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines,” his campaign said at the time.
The statement then continued explaining how “pictures like this are very fashionable and common” in European culture.
