Karen McDougal, the former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Donald Trump, is taking a page straight out of the Stormy Daniels playbook.
According to a The New York Times report, McDougal filed a lawsuit on Tuesday to get out of her 2016 non-disclosure agreement, becoming the second woman in two weeks to file a lawsuit accusing the president or his allies of trying to bury news about a Trump extramarital affair.
McDougal is suing American Media Inc., The National Enquirer's parent company, which, according to the Wall Street Journal, paid her $150,000 to buy her story — but never ran it. The Enquirer's chief executive, David Pecker, is a friend of Trump's.
Porn star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, said in a lawsuit filed March 6 that her "hush agreement" with Trump is invalid. Trump attorney Michael Cohen agreed in October 2016 to pay her $130,000 to keep her from talking about an extramarital affair she said she had with Trump just over a decade ago.
