Stormy Daniels is denying an alleged affair between herself and President Trump, according to a new statement from the adult film star confirmed by The Associated Press.
"The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 20011, 2016, 2017, and now again in 2018. I am not denying this affair because I was paid 'hush money' as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened," the adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, wrote in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed reporter on Tuesday.
The AP later confirmed with Clifford's lawyer that the statement was authentic.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that President Trump's personal lawyer paid the actress $130,000 in October 2016 to stay quiet about the alleged affair, one month before the presidential election.
