The woman at the center of the story "emphatically" denied to the wire service that she had an affair with Trump.
President Donald Trump's favorite social media platform exploded on Thursday over a report claiming he had a love child with an unnamed mistress in the 1980s.
In 2015, Mr. Sajudin, a former Trump Tower doorman, approached the National Enquirer saying he had been told not to criticize a particular maid because of her illicit affair with Mr. Trump and the child that resulted. The deal included a $1 million penalty should Sajudin tell his story to anyone else without A.M.I. permission.
The parallel between the ex-Playmate's and the ex-doorman's dealings with the Enquirer raises new questions about the roles that the Enquirer and Cohen may have played in protecting Trump's image during a hard-fought presidential election.
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.

Federal investigators have sought communications between Cohen, American Media's chief executive and the Enquirer's top editor, the New York Times reported.
The tabloid's actions have raised suspicions that Sajudin was locked into the non-disclosure agreement not to secure exclusive rights to a potential bombshell report, but to "catch and kill" the story and prevent any potential ramifications to Trump's presidential campaign.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room on Monday, seeking information about the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.
For Weinstein, no longer a Boies Schiller client, David Boies was reported to have signed a July 2017 contract with an Israeli private intelligence agency called Black Cube, which was working to undercut a potential New York Times story on Weinstein's sexual misconduct.
