Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford, an adult film actress, who previously claimed that she had an affair with Donald Trump, has filed a lawsuit against the president alleging that a nondisclosure agreement she signed is invalid, multiple sources have confirmed.

The 38-year-old porn star says the contract, which was drawn up before the 2016 election, is "void" as he didn't sign it.

Last month, Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, confirmed to media that he had privately paid her $130,000 (£95,000). The lawsuit alleges that Michael tried to "intimidate her into silence."

Michael has said Trump "vehemently denies" any sexual involvement with Stormy.

 

The civil lawsuit, which she filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday, March 6, says that only days before the election, Stormy and Michael signed the "hush agreement" but the president did not, "thus rendering it legally null and void and of no consequence".

It adds,

To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms Clifford into silence and 'shut her up' in order to 'protect Mr Trump' continue unabated.

Although Michael confirmed that he paid the money the actress, he didn't say what it was exactly for. Last month, he said last that neither Trump nor the Trump Organization was a party to the transaction.

He said,

The payment to Ms Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone,
