A former Trump World Tower doorman said Friday he’s been released from a contract that kept his story — claiming Donald Trump had a love child with a housekeeper — under wraps at the National Enquirer.
Pecker is famous for “catch and kill” stories – paying people for the rights to their potentially embarrassing tales about Trump and keeping the sordid accusations locked away.
“Mr. Sajudin has been unable to discuss the circumstances regarding his deal with American Media Inc. and the story that he sold to them, due to a significant financial penalty,” Sajudin’s lawyer Marc Held told CNN.
“Just recently, AMI released Mr. Sajudin from the terms of his agreement and he is now able to speak about his personal experience with them, as well as his story, which is now known to be one of the ‘catch and kill’ pieces. Mr. Sajudin hopes the truth will come out in the very near future.”
The cable news network reported that it had obtained the “source agreement” contract between AMI and Sajudin.
The deal was dated on Nov. 15, 2015 and said AMI had full rights to Sajudin’s story.
“Source shall provide AMI with information regarding Donald Trump’s illegitimate child,” according to the contract.
Pecker’s treasure trove of “catch and kill” stories could be flooding out soon after prosecutors gave Pecker immunity in the ongoing investigation of illegal campaign donations.
Trump’s former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to charges this week, telling prosecutors that his then-candidate boss ordered him to make illegal payments to cover up embarrassing stories.
