Controversies of Stormy Daniels
- In 2009, she was accused of beating up her husband, Crain; because she was upset over how he had done the laundry.
- In 2018, her alleged previous affair with Donald Trump started doing rounds in the media –
According to Stephanie Clifford, known by her stage name Stormy Daniels, she was invited to dinner in Donald Trump’s suite, where he welcomed her dressed in his pajamas.
She claimed that they had what “may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had.” However, Trump denied any sexual relations with her and accused her of extortion, calling her claims a “total con job.”
The $130,000 payment Daniels received just before the 2016 presidential election, which was a hush payment, is a known fact. It is reportedly at the center of the Manhattan district attorney’s indictment of Trump for the possible violation of campaign finance laws.
Once the hush payment was revealed in 2018, Daniels sought to nullify her nondisclosure agreement with Trump and spoke out publicly about their encounter. In a 60 Minutes interview, she stated that she saw their relationship as a potential career boost, but denied being a victim and maintained that the relationship was consensual.
