Former Playboy model Karen McDougal has been freed up to tell her story about an alleged affair she had with Donald Trump, after settling a lawsuit with publisher American Media, McDougal said in a statement provided to TheWrap on Wednesday.
Under the settlement agreement, McDougal will appear on the September 2018 cover of Men’s Journal, with the issue also containing a feature-length article on her.
AMI will also publish five additional health and fitness columns written by McDougal, and retain the right to publish articles about her “in the normal course of its journalism.”
The agreement also says that AMI is maintaining a financial interest in any re-sale of an exclusive on McDougal’s personal story
According to the New York Times, National Enquirer parent company American Media bought McDougal’s story in August 2016, but never ran the story.
In a March interview with Anderson Cooper, McDougal, who says she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and 2007, apologized to Trump’s wife Melania.
“What can you say except I’m sorry,” she said. “I’m sorry. I wouldn’t want it done to me. I’m sorry.”
Trump has denied having an affair with McDougal from the wrap.
