Another woman has filed suit hoping to tell Anderson Cooper her story about an alleged relationship with Donald Trump.
Former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal has agreed to an interview on CNN Thursday to talk about the 10-month affair in 2006-07.
But McDougal is bound by a 2016 legal agreement in which she received $150,000 to, among other things, sell her story to National Enquirer publisher AMI, which had no intention of printing her story, her lawyer claims.
McDougal filed suit Tuesday seeking to be released from that agreement. AMI CEO David Pecker has described President Trump as “a personal friend.”
McDougal’s attorney Peter Stris was on CBS This Morning arguing that his client isn’t looking for publicity, which elicited a chuckle from Gayle King. “Here’s how I say that,” said Stris. “She’s going to do this interview. She’s going to tell her truth. And then, you’re not going to see her again. And that’s what someone does who does not want publicity. And you can hold me to that.”
Cooper also sat down with porn star Stormy Daniels who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006. That interview is scheduled for Sunday’s 60 Minutes, despite a legal challenge from Trump’s attorneys.
