The former doorman at Trump World Tower who was paid $30,000 by the National Enquirer for his story about President Donald Trump fathering a child with a former employee released a statement Thursday acknowledging the rumor.
“Today I awoke to learn that a confidential agreement that I had with AMI (The National Enquirer) with regard to a story about President Trump was leaked to the press,” [Dino] Sajudin said in the statement Thursday.
“I can confirm that while working at Trump World Tower I was instructed not to criticize President Trump’s former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump which produced a child.”
But according to The Hill, the story remains unverified.
The Enquirer reportedly determined that Sajudin's story wasn’t true and released him from the contract after the 2016 presidential election.
Sajudin's ex-wife of 14 years cast doubt on his story as well, telling the New York Daily News that her former husband is a "pathological liar" and "infamous for making up stories."
“He’s seen the chupacabra. He’s seen bigfoot," Nikki Benfatto told the newspaper. "One of our friends who passed away, he saw him too, walking down the street.”
