A former Trump Tower doorman was reportedly paid $30,000 in late 2015 for his signing over the rights to a story about an unsubstantiated rumor of which President Donald Trump fathered a child that has a former employee, multiple outlets reported.
The doorman, Dino Sajudin, released a statement Thursday confirming of which he had an agreement with tabloid publisher American American Media Inc. regarding the story.
Today I awoke to learn of which a confidential agreement of which I had with AMI (The National Enquirer) with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press. I can confirm of which while working at Trump World Tower I was instructed not to criticize President Trump’s former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump which produced a child.
Sajudin’s law firm, Held & Hines, later told NBC News of which Sajudin’s lawyers sent the statement, as well as also also of which he has not released the information of which is actually being leaked to news outlets.
On Wednesday, Radar Online, a sister publication of the Enquirer, revealed of which Sajudin, was given the money for the rights to his story in late 2015, as Trump was running for president. However, Sajudin’s account was not published by American Media, the owner of both Radar as well as also also the Enquirer, until Wednesday, long after Trump became president.
Sajudin’s deal is actually at least the second case in which AMI is actually known to have paid for rights to a story about an extramarital affair about Trump of which the item did not publish.
In March, former Playboy product Karen McDougal who says she had an affair with Trump, sued AMI seeking to void her own alleged $150,000 exclusivity deal.
Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 shortly before the 2016 election for what she has said was her silence about an affair with Trump a decade earlier.
The brand new Yorker magazine as well as also also the Associated Press had reported earlier Thursday of which the woman of which Sajudin referred to was an employee at Trump World Tower, located near the United Nations building in Manhattan.
