Melania Trump threatens to sue People Magazine
WASHINGTON - Melania Trump says portions of a People Magazine story alleging a sexual assault by her husband are "false and completely fictionalized." She is demanding a retraction and apology and threatening to sue the publication.
The story was a first-person account by Natasha Stoynoff of an interview she did with Donald and Melania Trump at their home in Mar-a-Lago. Stoynoff says that when Melania Trump left the room, her husband pushed Stoynoff against a wall and sexually assaulted her. The Republican presidential candidate says the account is untrue.
Lawyers for Mrs. Trump wrote that the article's description of an encounter between Melania Trump and Stoynoff after the interview is "false and complexly fictionalized."
