Adult movie star, Stormy Daniels has filed a law against Trump, suit seeking to invalidate a ‘hush agreement’ she signed days before the 2016 presidential election on her alleged sexual relationship with Donald Trump.

Stormy Daniels stated that the nondisclosure agreement,  which stopped her from speaking about the alleged sexual relationship, is ‘null and void’ because the president did not sign it.

The adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, affirmed that  she wanted to go public with the details of the alleged affair in the weeks leading up to the election, according to the lawsuit.

But Trump and Cohen ‘aggressively’ tried to silence her as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, ‘to ensure he won the Presidential Election’, she argues.

‘To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms Clifford into silence and “shut her up” in order to “protect Mr Trump” continue unabated,’ the lawsuit said.

The president has refuted the allegations, but Clifford alleges that she began an ‘intimate relationship’ with him in 2006 and that it continued ‘well into the year 2007’ – two years after he married Melania Trump in 2005.

She said the relationship included encounters in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and Beverly Hills, California, the lawsuit claims.

Clifford has claimed she had sex with Trump once and they carried on a platonic relationship for several years.

She has also, through a lawyer, denied the two had an ‘affair’.

Trump’s attorney said he paid the porn actress $130,000 (£94,000) out of his own pocket as part of the agreement.

He has also said that ‘neither the Trump Organisation nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly’.

The lawsuit over the ‘hush agreement’ refers to Trump as David Dennison and Clifford as Peggy Peterson, but attached evidence revealed their true identities.

Clifford alleges that as recently as last week, Trump’s attorney tried to initiate an arbitration proceeding against her.

The White House is yet to comment  on the lawsuit.
