UPDATE 8:20 a.m. EST:
CNN Money reports the lawsuit was settled for about $2.9 million. The suit initially asked for at least $150 million in damages.
The amount of the damages was not disclosed.
Court documents reveal the Daily Mail published articles last summer alleging Trump "provides services beyond simply modeling." The articles included statements that there was no evidence to support the allegations against Trump.
We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them.
The original Daily Mail story ran under the headline "Racy photos and troubling questions about his wife's past that could derail Trump," referring to then-candidate Donald Trump. A statement released in September said the article did not "intend to state or suggest that these allegations are true," but that they could affect the election anyway.
The article cited a book that claimed Melania Trump worked at "something like a gentleman's club" and an article from a magazine that alleged Paolo Zampolli's modeling agency, where Melania worked, "operated as an escort agency."
Readers of the newspaper could not fail to miss the article.
Solicitor John Kelly said the article "prominently displayed" a naked photo of Melania.
