Trump doorman 'unstable,' 'infamous for making up stories,' ex-wife says

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen said he was aware of the story but denied knowledge of the tipster's $30,000 payday

Per The New Yorker, American Media Inc., which owns The National Enquirer and other tabloids, reportedly paid Dino Sajudin, a former doorman at Trump Tower, $30,000 around the start of Trump's presidential campaign.

Dino Sajudin, who worked at one of Trump's NY establishments, is understood to have approached AMI's National Enquirer with information he'd been told about Trump's sex life in late 2015, after the real-estate mogul announced he was running for president.

President Donald Trump had a relationship with a former housekeeper and fathered a child with her, a former Trump World Tower doorman claimed in a statement released Thursday afternoon. The penalty for revealing the rumor to anyone else would subject Sajudin to a $1 million payment to the National Enquirer.

As the alleged love child rumors continue to make rounds in the media world, the Trump family continues to draw headlines. The Associated Press reports that embattled Trump attorney Michael Cohen was involved in the deal with Sajudin. He claimed the tabloid later made a decision to spike the story because it could not verify Sajudin's account, and released the ex-doorman from his contract - just after the 2016 election.

Nevertheless, that the media company spent $30,000 to buy exclusive rights to Sajudin's story - and subsequently sit on it - raises serious questions about their motivations.

The publication ultimately spiked the story, according to The Associated Press.

Benfatto said Sajudin never mentioned anything to her about a possible Trump love child.

"AMI doesn't go around cutting checks for $30,000 and then not using the information", said Jerry George, a reporter and senior editor for almost three decades at AMI before his layoff in 2013.

Enquirer staffers, however, told The New Yorker and the Associated Press that reporters were pulled off the story, which claimed Trump had fathered a love-child nearly three decades ago. However, this adds another person to the list of those allegedly paid off by AMI, whose CEO has publicly confirmed a friendship with Trump, to try and bury secrets about the 70-year-old.

He is now under investigation over McDougal's case and a $130,000 payment in 2016 to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, who also alleges she had an affair with the president.

The story wasn't broken by the New Yorker and the AP but, rather, by Radar Online, a sister publication of the Enquirer, on Wednesday. He declined to speak with the New Yorker after Farrow told him the publication does not pay its sources.

The National Enquirer made a habit of paying for juicy Donald Trump stories just so it could shut those stories down and protect his campaign, according to a new report by Ronan Farrow.

"Once she's part of the company, then on the outside she can't be bashing Trump and American Media", Pecker said. Daniels had signed a non-disclosure agreement but has since sued to claim the agreement was void because Trump had not signed it.

The story about the Sajudin deal draws parallels with previous reports saying the Enquirer tried to "catch and kill" the story about Trump's alleged liaison with Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Trump's personal attorney, Cohen, has separately said he paid $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, a porn actress who performs under the name Stormy Daniels, to remain silent about her alleged affair with Trump. Cohen has insisted he used his own money to make the payment - taking out a home equity line of credit to do so - and that he did so without any promise or expectation that the president or anyone in his orbit would pay him back.
