President Trump is suing his ex-attorney and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen for over $500 million, according to FOX News.

The lawsuit states, “This is an action arising from multiple breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, conversion, and breaches of contract by virtue of past service as employee and attorney.”

The 32-page federal lawsuit was filed by Trump’s legal team Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

The lawsuit alleges Cohen breached his attorney-client relationship by “spreading falsehoods” about Trump that were “likely to be embarrassing or detrimental, and partook in other misconduct,” while also breaching contractual terms of a confidentiality agreement he signed as a condition of employment with Trump.

The lawsuit alleges Cohen spread falsehoods about Trump “with malicious intent and to wholly self-serving ends.” 

The lawsuit details Cohen’s “myriad of public statements, including the publication of two books, a podcast series, and innumerable mainstream media appearances,” while ignoring “cease and desist” orders.

It claims Cohen has, in recent months, “increased the frequency and hostility of the illicit acts” and “appears to have become emboldened and repeatedly continues to make wrongful and false statements” about Trump through various platforms.

“Such continuous and escalating improper conduct by [Cohen] has reached a proverbial crescendo and has left [Trump] with no alternative but to seek legal redress through this action,” the lawsuit states, adding that Trump has “suffered vast reputational harm as a direct result of [Cohen’s] breaches.”

Trump is seeking damages from Michael Cohen in a trial for compensatory, incidental, actual, and punitive losses.

From the lawsuit:

Wherefore, Plaintiff requests that this Court enter judgment in its favor grating the following relief:

(a) For actual, compensatory, incidental, and punitive damages in an amount to be determined at trial, but expected to substantially exceed Five Hundred Million Dollars ($500,000,000);

(b) For restitution and disgorgement of any profits, payments, compensation, advances, royalties, and/or other monetary proceeds received by Defendant as a direct or indirect result of the publication of the Books, the Podcast, and other ancillary products;

(c) For the $74,000 that was subject to unlawful conversion and made via fraudulent misrepresentation by Defendant, plus interest and other costs and expenses;

(d) For interest, costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees pursuant to statute; and

(e) For such other relief as this Court may deem fair, equitable and just.
