Stormy Daniels has become a household name. But unlike most other adult stars, she’s involved in a bitter legal feud with the president of the United States. Aside from her name being splashed across the headlines, few know about the woman behind the tabloid drama.
Keep reading about Stormy Daniels, the person who might put a dink in President Donald Trump’s net worth.
Stormy Daniels Net Worth: $2M
Stephanie Gregory Clifford (aka “Stormy Daniels”) grew up in the Baton Rouge region of Louisiana, being raised primarily by her mother after her parents divorced in the early ’80s. Daniels began her career in the adult industry at the age of 17, beginning to work as a stripper at a local club in Baton Rouge. She chose her performance name for two reasons:
1. “Stormy” reflects her love of the hair-metal act Motley Crue, due to bassist Nikki Sixx naming his own daughter Storm.
2. “Daniels” is an homage to the whiskey brand Jack Daniel’s.
She has led a markedly successful career in the adult film industry, having been inducted into both the AVN Hall of Fame and XRCO Hall of Fame in 2014, and has received numerous nominations for her directorial work in the field. Daniels’ net worth is $2 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
Stormy Daniels’ Personal Life
Daniels has been married three times, to men linked to the pornography industry. She was previously married to actors Pat Myne and Mike Moz. Her current husband Brendon Miller is the father of her 7-year-old daughter, according to The New York Times.
Daniels has dabbled in the world of politics for nearly a decade, toying with the idea of running for Senate after a group of fans attempted to recruit her to topple incumbent David Vitter. Daniels embarked on what she dubbed a “listening tour” and focused on the statewide issue of economic troubles, but on April 15, 2010, she announced that she would end her attempt to become a Louisiana senator.
Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump
The scandal that brought attention to Daniels involves current President Donald Trump. The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid the actress over $130,000 to keep an alleged affair with Trump quiet.
Daniels filed a lawsuit against Trump three months later, citing that the nondisclosure agreement she had signed was invalid, because Trump’s personal signature wasn’t on the document. Daniels then took to the media, appearing on “60 Minutes” to outline details of the alleged affair. She asserted she had been intimately involved with the president once and felt pressured to sign the nondisclosure agreement after being threatened in front of her infant daughter.
These allegations are still under investigation by the FBI.
