Melania Trump is reportedly taking legal action against the Daily Mail and other outlets for allegedly making “false and defamatory” claims about her past. According to Politico, Trump is represented by Charles Harder, the attorney financed by tech billionaire Peter Thiel in the Hulk Hogan case thatultimately bankrupted Gawker.

“Mrs. Trump has placed several news organizations on notice of her legal claims against them, including Daily Mail among others, for making false and defamatory statements about her supposedly having been an ‘escort’ in the 1990s,” Harder said in a statement. “All such statements are 100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful. She understands that news media have certain leeway in a presidential campaign, but outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency.”

The article in question was published by Daily Mail on Friday and picked up a story from a Slovenian magazine that questioned Trump’s history as a model and exactly when she arrived in the U.S. from Slovenia.

Outlets such as Inquisitir and Bipartisan Report have already printed retractions after picking up the Daily Mail story.

“Yesterday, Aug. 21, 2016, we published a story sourced from multiple outlets about Melania Trump’s past employment,” wrote Bipartisan Report. “After publishing, it was brought to our attention that many of the statements made by sources were not fully confirmed by audio or video tape and are therefore heresay.”
