Donald Trump’s marriage to Melania is facing a fresh crisis as porn star Stormy Daniels sues him over their alleged affair.Stormy Daniels, 38, (real name Stephanie Clifford) issued court proceedings against Trump, saying their non-disclosure agreement is null and void because he did not sign it.
Daniels was paid $130,000 days before the 2016 election by attorney Michael Cohen to ensure she would not speak about her sexual relationship with the US President. Ms. Daniels’ lawyer, says Trump was aware of this at the time. The porn star has accused Mr. Cohen in court papers of continuing to bully her to keep quiet about the 2006 affair that is said to have begun shortly after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.
The allegations have left the Donald Trump sleeping alone in the White House as ex-model Melania, 47, is said to be contemplating leaving him after 13 years of marriage. White House sources say the lawsuit has left the Melania Trump “incandescent with anger” after Ms Daniels’ lawyer confirmed today that the relationship between his client and Donald Trump was sexual.
When asked whether his client had a sexual relationship with then-businessman Mr Trump, her attorney Michael Avenatti responded “yes”.
A source told the Mirror: “Melania is no fool. She is a highly intelligent woman who makes up her own mind. The mounting accusations are taking their toll.”
In recent weeks, the First Lady has declined to travel in the same car as the President and refuses to hold his hand when he tries to take hers in public.
Ms Daniels – star of 150 porn films, including Dirty Deeds and Good Will Humping – filed her lawsuit in Los Angeles in her real name, Stephanie Clifford.
