Melania Trump Threatens People Magazine With Lawsuit

Melania Trump threatened People Magazine and a former staff reporter with legal action late Thursday over “false and completely fictionalized” statements in the writer’s account of Donald Trump forcing himself on her during a 2005 interview.

The Republican presidential candidate’s wife denied that she encountered or conversed with writer Natasha Stoynoff in New York, tweeting a letter from her lawyer demanding a “prominent retraction and apology” of certain statements in the article, and threatening that Melania would otherwise “consider her legal options.”

“The true facts are these: Mrs. Trump did not encounter Ms. Stoynoff on the street, nor have any conversation with her,” lawyer Charles Harder wrote. “The two are not friends and were never friends or even friendly.”

His law firm requested that People and Stoynoff confirm within 24 hours that the demands were being met, saying “failure to do so will require Mrs. Trump to consider her legal options.”

The letter did not dispute Stoynoff’s allegations that Donald Trump forcibly kissed her during an interview for an article to mark his wedding anniversary with his then-pregnant third wife Melania in 2005.

“I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat,” Stoynoff wrote, an account the Republican White House hopeful vehemently denied.

“These vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false,” he told a rally in West Palm Beach Thursday.

At least six women have accused the New York mogul of making unwanted physical advances in accounts reported by The New York Times, NBC, People Magazine and others, most of them after he asserted during Sunday’s presidential debate with his democratic rival Hillary Clinton that he had never sexually assaulted a woman.

He said his lawyers were preparing a lawsuit against The New York Times — which published the accounts of two women who accused him of groping and kissing them — unless the paper retracts its article.

In her People story, Stoynoff said she asked to be taken off the “Trump beat,” but later ran into the real estate magnate’s wife in New York.

“That winter, I actually bumped into Melania on Fifth Avenue, in front of Trump Tower as she walked into the building, carrying baby Barron,” Stoynoff said. “‘Natasha, why don’t we see you anymore?’ (Melania Trump) asked, giving me a hug. I was quiet and smiled, telling her I’d missed her, and I squeezed little Barron’s foot.”

The potential first lady’s lawyer Charles Harder also represented former wrestler Hulk Hogan in his successful lawsuit against Gawker Media, which resulted in a $140 million jury award against the entertainment website for releasing a sex tape featuring Hogan and a friend’s wife

Kendall & Kylie Jenner Face Lawsuit

 Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been slapped with a lawsuit alongside clothing brand PacSun.

The sisters are accused of stealing resort lifestyle retailer Island Company’s trademarked logo according to Page Six. The company, based in West Palm Beach, Florida, claim the siblings and PacSun stole its phrase: “Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in love. Never return”

The accusation comes after PacSun designed a shirt for the girls’ clothing line with the similar mantra: “Run away. Fall in love. Never return.”

Island Company states in its legal documents that Kendall and Kylie’s version “is likely to cause confusion, mistake and deception among consumers, the public and the trade as to whether defendants’ products or services are affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by plaintiff,” the outlet reports.

The brand has used its trademark phrase since 2005 and its garments have been seen on celebrities including Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt.

It demands that the words are removed from the teenagers’ clothing.

A rep for Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 18 has yet to respond to the lawsuit or Page Six.

Woman Gets $18 Million From Boss After Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

After a bombshell sexual harassment lawsuit that rocked the tabloids, a former Wall Street worker has won a whopping $18 million from her former boss.

Hanna Bouveng, 25, from Sweden, sued Benjamin Wey, 43, owner of the New York Global Group, claiming he pressured her into a sexual relationship and retaliated by firing and harassing her after she broke it off.

According to Bouveng, Wey, who is married, began pursuing her after he hired her in 2013, but she rejected him. Eventually, after renting her an apartment, gifting her with the likes of Prada bags, and plying her with alcohol, he wore her down — and she was apparently traumatized. “She was debased. She was degraded. She was defiled. He was delighted … He thought he owned her,” attorney David Ratner reportedly told jurors.

Hanna ended the relationship, refusing to have sex with him again, but “he said if I didn’t show him tangible love, he was kicking me out by August 1,” Bouveng told the court of the events that led to her firing.

And this is where the retaliation comes in: Wey began publishing nasty stories about Bouveng on his blog, and, jealous of her new boyfriend, he emailed racist comments to her father. The harassment escalated to the point where Bouveng felt the need to leave the country and go back to Sweden — but Wey found her in the café where she was working, an allegedly threatening gesture that “felt like an intent to destroy whatever I would do,” Bouveng said.

Lil’ Wayne’s $51 Million Lawsuit Exposes Cash Money’s Dirty Business

Lil Wayne’s $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money Records and its head Birdman was a shock to many. What we didn’t know is how far the label’s shady dealings with Weezy, his Young Money Entertainment and artist Drake ran.

According to 21-page suit, posted Mark H. Jaffe, the f***ery and betrayal goes deep, as seen in the following points via Reason4Rhymes.com:

1. Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment is technically not owned by Lil Wayne because his “Pa”, Birdman, owns 51% interest in the label while Weezy owns 49%.

2. Cash Money Records failed to provide Weezy and/or Young Money with accounting statements and payments of net profits for years.

3. Since early 2012, Cash Money has failed to provide monthly accounting statements and/or failed to pay Young Money its share of receipts with regard to Drake’s recordings, who is signed to Young Money.
