To believe she didn't get paid is crazy. Not that she said anything that counted

You stated she was paid. All you were asked is to provide a reliable source to back up what you said. It might have been better to state "I believe she was paid because.... " to make it your own personal opinion (which of course is just as valid as any one else's opinion around here).

Its all in the wording.

The thing people react to is that you are stating it as a fact. Stating non-facts like facts is almost a death sin in forum-etiquette. If you had written "I really think that she was paid off" would not have gotten the same response. You would have people telling you why they think different, but most people don't respond as "aggressively" if you state it as an opinion (which it is)

Even if she was paid--and we have no evidence that she was--that doesn't mean that her account of her time with Prince Andrew isn't true.

I'm not saying what she has said is a lie but it has no bearing about what Andrew is being accused of now.
But we now all know that she bumped heads with Charles wow can't believe she kept that to herself for 30 years!!!!!!!! IMO

I agree with you that the anecdotes really didn't serve any purpose but, to me, it enhanced her personal involvement at the time with not only Andrew, but members of his family on various occasions. It made the article even more personal and stressed the fact that in fact, she did know Andrew quite well at the time. IIRC, in the article, there was also a picture of Koo with Andrew long after they'd broken up as a romantic couple. (I think the photo was in 2000 something. I'd have to go back and check.)

Perhaps she did get paid for the article and I really doubt that we'll ever get to know the details of that transaction but my guess would be that the payment would be insisted on by the Daily Mail as then the article and its contents would then be under sole ownership of the Mail. I also think that if Koo had wanted to profit from her romance and friendship with Andrew, she would have sold off memoirs years ago.

I would say her memoirs are worth a lot more now with what's happening than years ago.
And she could be more in need of money now.
So it's a win/ win
She tells a nice tale about Andrew, makes him happy she gets paid makes her happy. IMO

I do know people who met Andy on an elevator in the mid-80's and they thought he was a nice guy.

I am very willing to report this to the DM for a small fee.

Do write to the Duke of York - he is free to bring suit if he so choses.

One question - if you thought that the allegations against Andy are true - what would be more vile to you, his actions or the suggestion that Koo got paid to remember some nice things?

He goes for a certain type ?
Needy? not wealthy? Or he's a soft touch ?

With my luck, if I had any kind of a story, they'd only pay me a pittance to make everything above board and fair and square legally.

My money is on Andrew being a nice guy and a "soft touch".

Paid a handsome sum you would be, too.

To be honest, I don't think there is any money in what Koo did. Money is unlikely imo.

I don't think anyone would think that there would be any reason to pay Koo. She isn't that big a 'seller' anymore. To my mind this is an old friend sticking up for a friend and nothing else.

As I understand it, tabloids tend to pay for scandalous stories. This one wasn't. If anything, it was endearing.
