UK's Daily Mail to pay Melania Trump damages over modelling claims

LONDON, April 12 (Reuters) - Britain's Daily Mail agreed on Wednesday to pay Melania Trump an undisclosed sum and issue an apology after the news group published an article about her previous professional work as a model.

She had filed a $150 million (120 million pound) lawsuit against the Daily Mail's owner in New York claiming the article had cost her millions of dollars in potential business.

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail apologised for the article and said it would issue a retraction.

"We have agreed to pay her damages and costs," it said.

A person familiar with the situation said the settlement was worth less than $3 million, including legal costs and damages. (Reporting by Costas Pitas and Michael Holden; editing by Stephen Addison)
