Donald Trump's wife Melania is suing the Daily Mail after allegations she was a sex worker during the 1990s.

The article, entitled Racy photos, and troubling questions about his wife's past that could derail Trump, was published in August.

The newspaper has published a retraction, but the lawsuit could cost the paper $150 million.

But this isn't the first time the publisher has been in the spotlight for controversial articles. Indeed it has been at the heart of some of the biggest controversies ever to engulf the British media.
