Supporting magazine paid $30000 to doorman over rumour he fathered love child

President Donald Trump in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington

Sajudin got $30,000 in exchange for signing over the rights, "in perpetuity", to a rumor he'd heard about Trump's sex life - that the president had fathered a child with an employee at Trump World Tower, a skyscraper he owns near the United Nations.

Sajudin had told the Enquirer about a rumor he heard that Trump may have fathered a child in the 1980s with an employee at Trump World Tower, a NY building his company developed near the United Nations, the AP reported.

Dylan Howard, chief content officer of AMI, said in the statement: "Paying for information has always been a practice of the National Enquirer, and to suggest that it has only paid for, and not run, stories about any particular person is absurd". The contract subjected Sajudin to a $1 million penalty if he disclosed either the rumor or the terms of the deal to anyone.

The ex-doorman, the AP discovered, was privy to rumor of a relationship between Trump and another woman who lived at Trump World Tower.

"When we realized we would be unable to publish ... we released Sajudin from the exclusivity clause that had accompanies his $30,000 payment", he added.

It is of course possible that Trump knew nothing - even in the abstract - of this pattern of payments.

In Monday's raids on the office, home, and hotel room of Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney and self-proclaimed "fix-it guy," investigators were looking for records of communication between Cohen and Pecker, the Times reported. Ultimately, he said the information "lacked any credibility", so he spiked the story on those merits.

"Unfortunately ... Dino Sajudin is one fish that swam away", he told sister publication RadarOnline, which wrote Wednesday about a "disaffected former Trump staffer who is peddling" the allegation to other media outlets.

But four longtime Enquirer staffers directly familiar with the episode challenged Howard's version of events. They said that the investigation led them to "potentially promising reporting threads" but that they were told to end their research anyway. The deal also reportedly included a deal to publish regular columns by McDougal on aging and fitness.

"He's infamous for making up stories", Nikki Benfatto said of her former husband Dino Sajudin.

AMI said in its statement that it "categorically denies that Donald Trump or Michael Cohen had anything to do with its decision not to pursue a story about a "love child" that it determined was not credible". The media company later said it paid McDougal for a series of "fitness columns and magazine covers".

Still, A.M.I. paid Sajudin tens of thousands of dollars in exchange for silence, in a manner that mirrors McDougal's experience.

New York City police officers stand guard outside the entrance to Trump Tower.

For his part, Sajudin confirmed he'd been paid to be the tabloid's anonymous source but insisted he would sue the Enquirer if his name appeared in print.

"It seems like the writing is on the wall about that, it's pretty clear", Sajudin said before referring more questions to his lawyer.
