Daily Mail pays Melania Trump $2.9 million to settle lawsuit

The settlement was announced in a joint statement from the Daily Mail and Trump's lawyers.

"We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true and we retract and withdraw them. We apologize to Mrs. Trump for any distress that our publication caused her," the Daily Mail and Mail Online said in the statement.

Trump will be paid about $2.9 million in damages and costs, according to a source familiar with the settlement.

Not that shoes had anything to do with it, given that the photo was taken at a meeting between the two leaders to discuss Britain's strategy for leaving the European Union and how that might affect the relationship between Scotland and the rest of the UK.

But for the Mail, these weighty matters were of far less concern than how the two leaders looked. "Never mind Brexit, who won Legs-it!" shouted the headline on the British tabloid's print edition.
