Karen McDougal is suing Fox News for slander after Tucker Carlson invoked her situation in an effort to play down President Donald Trump's Ukraine troubles. McDougal is the former Playboy model who infamously received money from the National Enquirer to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

McDougal denies she participated in extortion to receive the $150,000 payment and said in the lawsuit that Carlson misled his viewers by saying that he was reporting "undisputed facts." The suit alleges Carlson's comments were "intentionally false and made with reckless disregard for the truth."

"Had Carlson done any investigation or responsible reporting or journalism, he would have easily discovered that what he and FOX NEWS published about MCDOUGAL was and is demonstrably false," the lawsuit said.

McDougal said in the suit that the people she negotiated with "never once mentioned, implied or otherwise indicated that MCDOUGAL extorted Trump."
