The Daily Mail will pay about $3 million to settle with Melania Trump, according to a source. Last August, the tabloid published a story that said U.S. First Lady worked as an escort. In response, she sued its publisher in Britain and filed a $150 million lawsuit in New York, saying the article cost her millions of dollars in potential business.

That lawsuit was settled in February for, what Trump's lawyer called, a "substantial sum."
