Donald Trump may have had a sexual encounter with porn star Stormy Daniels. A friend of the adult film actress said that Trump and Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, met during a 2006 golf tournament and partied at his hotel afterwards. At one point in the night, Trump allegedly chased Daniels around in his hotel room wearing only his tighty whities.
Alana Evans broke the Daniels story on Megyn Kelly Today. Evans is an old friend of Daniels and claimed that the porn star told her all about the tryst in 2006, a little over a year after Trump tied the knot with First Lady Melania Trump.
Evans says that Daniel tried to get her to come along to the party at Trump’s hotel, because she didn’t like the idea of hanging out with Trump by herself. The following morning Evans asked Daniels how things went and hasn’t been able to shake the visual ever since.
“Having her tell me the next day when I asked how did it go, and she says, ‘Well, picture this: Donald Trump chasing me around the bedroom in his tighty whities,’ isn’t something you ever forget.” Evans told Kelly.
Evans was so shocked by the statement that she didn’t know how to react at the time. Evans, who is Democrat and supported both Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton, said that she never talked about that night with Daniels again. The two women remain friends to this day.
Shortly before the 2016 presidential election, Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen settled with Daniels and reportedly dished out $130,000 to keep her silent.
Trump has continued to deny that the encounter with Daniels ever happened. Cohen also disputes the claims and says that Trump and Daniels met at the golf tournament but nothing happened afterwards.
Daniels allegedly released a statement through Cohen saying that she did not received any money from Trump and that the allegations about the affair were completely fabricated.
Daniels has worked in the adult film industry ever since she was a teenager. In 2002, Daniels got her first big break when she signed a major contract with the porn studio, Wicked Pictures.

In addition to her porn movies, Daniels has had cameos in a few mainstream films, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Finding Bliss and Knocked Up. She also tried her hand in politics in 2009 and openly challenged David Vitter, the Senator from Louisiana. Daniels has not addressed the rumors surrounding her alleged encounter with Trump.
Trump’s reported affair with Daniels comes amid multiple rumors about his troubled marriage with Melania.
So far, Donald Trump has denied all of the reports of his infidelity and claims that his marriage to Melania is doing just fine.
