Donald Trump has dropped the $5 million lawsuit he lodged against Bill Maher for allegedly calling him part orangutan, reports TMZ.
Trump sued Maher in February, claiming Maher skipped out on a promise to donate $5 million to charity if Trump could prove he wasn’t related to an orangutan. Maher’s comments followed Trump’s offer to donate $5 million in a challenge to President Obama’s birth certificate.
Trump had replied to Maher by providing a copy of his birth certificate, and claimed that Maher should pay up.
Trump filed documents March 29 to dismiss the case, although Trump’s special counsel said the reason was to amend the lawsuit and refile it later, the story says.
