Adult film star Stormy Daniels has reportedly filed a lawsuit against President Trump — alleging he never signed a “hush agreement” to keep quiet about their rumored affair.
Daniels, who real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Tuesday that claims the nondisclosure agreement is invalid and she is free to publicly discuss the alleged Trump tryst, according to the suit.
Both Daniels and Trump lawyer Michael Cohen signed the agreement three days before then 2016 presidential election.
In the agreement, Trump is identified as David Dennison and Daniels is referred to as Peggy Peterson.
The agreement mentions the existence of certain “still images and/or text messages” that were authored by or relate to Trump.
It was not clear what type of images or texts Trump may have sent to Daniels. The documents, which the lawsuit refers to as a “hush agreement,” includes a blank where Trump is supposed to sign — but he allegedly did not give his signature.
The lawsuit claims that Trump did not sign the agreement in case he needed to deny its existence at a future date.
Daniels received $130,000 in accordance with the agreement — despite the fact that it wasn’t signed by Trump, the suit says.
She claims that Cohen has breached the agreement by talking about the payment publicly.
Daniels, 38, also says he bullied her into keeping quiet and now she’s fighting back.
“To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and ‘shut her up’ in order to ‘protect Mr. Trump’ continue unabated,” the suit says. “On or about Feb. 27, 2018, Mr. Trump’s attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles.”
In a 2011 interview published earlier this year by In Touch Weekly, Daniels said she met Trump at a 2006 celebrity golf tournament. Daniels’ alleged trysts with Trump took place in at locations such as the Beverly Hills Hotel and at Lake Tahoe.
Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, could not be reached for comment.
