Porn actor Stormy Daniels said she is “far more angrier” with her former lawyer Michael Avenatti than with ex-President Donald Trump, with whom she said she had an affair that she was paid to keep secret.
Last week, Avenatti was found guilty of cheating Daniels out of nearly $300,000 that she’d been advanced to write a book about her alleged affair with Trump.
Daniels tore into Avenatti in an interview Tuesday with NewsNation’s Dan Abrams, mocking her former lawyer with a reference to her relationship with Trump.
“He doesn’t scare me. I’ve seen Donald Trump naked. Nothing Michael Avenatti can say will scare me,” Daniels cracked.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said Avenatti ― who put her on the stand for several hours during his trial ― had personally betrayed her.
“I only met Trump a handful of times, not even. I didn’t consider him to be a friend,” she said. “I didn’t have private conversations, I didn’t trust him, and he certainly didn’t steal from me.”
“Michael Avenatti betrayed my trust in every way possible. He lied to my face. He lied about me,” she added.
