Melania Trump files $150M suit over escort service report

The New York Post reports:
Melania Trump has filed a blockbuster $150 million lawsuit against the The Daily Mail and a US-based blog claiming they defamed her when they reported that she worked for an escort service, multiple reports said Thursday.

And the British newspaper blinked just hours later, retracting its story and apologizing to the wife of GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Charles Harder, Melania Trump’s lawyer, hammered the news outlets. “These defendants made several statements about Mrs. Trump that are 100 percent false and tremendously damaging to her personal and professional reputation,” he said in a statement.

The suit was filed against the paper and the blog Tarpley in state court in Montgomery County, Maryland, CNN reported.
Stay tuned for that court date.
