Adult film star Stormy Daniels sues Trump, says ‘hush agreement’ is invalid because he didn’t sign it


Washington: Adult film star Stormy Daniels sued President Trump on Tuesday, claiming the nondisclosure agreement she signed isn’t valid because it lacks Trump’s signature.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court. The complaint, which was posted online by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, alleges the “Hush Agreement” — as it’s referred to in the lawsuit — Daniels signed regarding her relationship with Trump is invalid because he never signed it himself.

Daniels and Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed the non-disclosure agreement on Oct. 28, 2016, the suit said. Trump was elected president less than two weeks later.

The lawsuit claims the two had an “intimate relationship” during the summer of 2006 in Lake Tahoe, and it continued “well into the year 2007.” Daniels and Trump reportedly met at least once “in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel” during this time.

Cohen admitted last month that he paid Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket in October 2016 to keep mum about her relationship with Trump. He said the payment was lawful and not a campaign contribution or campaign expenditure “by anyone.”
