Porn star Stormy Daniels plans to strip Thursday in same area where cops busted her earlier in day

Daniels is suing President Donald Trump to avoid a nondisclosure agreement that barred her from talking about the alleged affair.


Porn star Stormy Daniels plans to do a striptease performance Thursday night in the Columbus, Ohio, area, where she was arrested by police earlier the same day on charges that were later quickly dropped by prosecutors , her lawyer said.

But despite initially saying she would reprise her nude act at the same Sirens strip club where cops busted her for touching undercover officers, Daniels "is looking for another club in the area," her lawyer Michael Avenatti said on Twitter.

Daniels, 39, also announced on Twitter that all of her tips from her stage show will go toward the legal fees of two other dancers who were arrested along with her early Thursday on charges of illegally touching someone else in the club.

Both of those women still face pending charges.

Daniels earlier Thursday had canceled her planned second show at Sirens on the heels of her arrest there after her first performance.

Cops said they had seen her forcing the faces of several undercover vice officers, male and female, between her breasts and smacking their faces with her breasts.

But Daniels changed her mind after the city attorney of Columbus dismissed the charges hours after that arrest.

It was not clear why she is not doing her second show in the Columbus area at Sirens.

Head prosecutor, Zach Klein said the charges against her were not justified because the law that police used to arrest Daniels bars a person who "regularly appears nude or seminude" at a strip club from touching a patron of that club.

"There has been no evidence ... that Defendant appears or has regularly appeared at Sirens," Klein said.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been on a nationwide tour of strip clubs since she began her legal challenge to a nondisclosure agreement that barred her from talking publicly about an alleged sexual encounter she had with President Donald Trump in 2006.

Daniels received a $130,000 payment from Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen in October 2016, right before the presidential election, in exchange for her silence about the purported tryst.

The White House denies that Trump had sex with Daniels. But Trump admits having reimbursed Cohen for the hush-money payout.
