Melania Trump has settled her defamation lawsuit against a Maryland blogger, according to multiple reports.
Webster Griffin Tarpley agreed to pay a "substantial sum" and has issued an apology to Trump, the first lady's attorneys said, according to a Washington Post report.
“I posted an article on August 2, 2016 about Melania Trump that was replete with false and defamatory statements about her,” Tarpley’s statement says.
“I had no legitimate factual basis to make these false statements and I fully retract them. I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements.”
