Stormy Daniels Says She Was 'Threatened' and Is Not 'Greedy,' Amid Donald Trump Affair Rumors

Porn star Stormy Daniels received threats and hired private security in the weeks following reports of her alleged extramarital affair with Donald Trump, she claimed in a newly released interview.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was tight-lipped when questioned by Inside Edition about having sex with Trump after the pair met at a 2006 golf tournament hosted by the billionaire’s hotel and golf resort at Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

"Suddenly, like, I'm actually having to make phone calls to hire security," she said on the program, which aired Thursday night. "I have been threatened."

Clifford, 38, also did not respond when asked about an account from porn star Alana Evans that Clifford told her Trump had chased her around his hotel suite in his “tighty-whities” underwear.

Evans also told People that she believed Trump angled to have a threesome with her and Clifford, but said she did not respond to the overtures because she felt Trump was not attractive enough, compared with movie stars Brad Pitt and Mark Wahlberg.

Clifford did not respond when asked if she was paid $130,000 not to speak about the affair, which allegedly took place a few months after Trump’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron.

The alleged payment and claims of a nondisclosure agreement that hindered Clifford from speaking about Trump came to light when The Wall Street Journal reported that a Trump lawyer paid Clifford’s lawyer the hefty sum in October 2016, shortly before the presidential election.

Trump and his lawyer have said no affair took place, and a statement the lawyer sent to the Journal that was signed by “Stormy Daniels” denied she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Trump.

“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.

Clifford admitted, however, that she had met Trump. "I think it's common [knowledge] from looking at photos that I met him," she said.

The payment allegedly came while Trump was steadying his campaign after the release of the infamous 2005 Access Hollywood tape, in which he is heard to say that he can “grab women by the pussy.” This was just weeks before Trump faced off against Democrat Hillary Clinton on Election Day.

Clifford also addressed allegations that the story has recently blown up because she is “greedy.”

“The big misconception is I’m stupid or that I’m greedy or an opportunist,” she said.

The frenzy did lead Clifford to launch a “Making America Horny Again” tour, which started last weekend in Greenville, South Carolina, on the anniversary of Trump’s inauguration.
