McDougal, who was judged runner-up for "Playmate of the '90s", allegedly met Trump in 2006 at the Playboy mansion after Trump had been married to Slovenian model Melania Trump for less than two years.
The New Yorker reported that on Aug 5, 2016, McDougall agreed to give the company which owns the National Inquirer tabloid exclusive rights over "any romantic, personal, or physical relationship she has ever had with any 'then-married man'". McDougal now says she regrets the deal: "It took my rights away", she told the New Yorker. McDougal confirmed it was her handwriting but did not talk about details with the magazine.
She said the president "immediately took a liking to me, kept talking to me - telling me how attractive I was etc". McDougal wrote they soon met at the Beverly Hills Hotel for dinner in a private bungalow. It also contracted her to write a fitness column.
The story comes as Trump continues to face questions about an alleged affair with Stephanie Clifford, a porn star who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels, during that same period.

The piece claims the tabloid also contracted Ms McDougal to write a fitness column, and approached Ms McDougal about extending her agreement after news broke that Stormy Daniels had been paid not to discuss her own alleged affair with the USA president.

First lady Melania Trump eschewed the traditional South Lawn couple's walk to Marine One on Friday amid another adultery allegation scandal, opting instead to drive separately ahead of President Donald Trump. American Media Inc. who own's the National Enquirer claims that they have "not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump". He "said she liked her space", Ms McDougal wrote, "to read or be alone". While he admitted that her contract with A.M.I. supposedly now allows her to respond to journalistic inquires, she and her lawyers still don't 100 percent believe the letter of the contract and are still afraid to speak out. "In fact, every time I flew to meet him, I booked/paid for flight + hotel + he reimbursed me".
They corroborate the details and methods of the Stormy Daniels affair, so, in theory, the story should be a double whammy.
In a January post featuring an OK magazine article about her, McDougal is cited as a model and lifestyle expert and weighs in on hostess gifts for partygoers.
