Trump's victory

The adult film star, who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump in the early years of his marriage to Melania, sued him for defamation.

After months of warring with Donald Trump, a federal court threw out Stormy's case, stating that the instances cited by Stormy and her lawyer Avenatti were baseless, as Trump was free to express an opinion on Twitter.

Stormy sacks her lawyer

The court ordered Stormy Daniels to pay Trump's legal fees and now, she claims that the lawsuit had been filed against her wishes by Avernatti. The lawyer also reportedly started crowdfunding campaigns against her desire, without telling her how the money was spent.

She shared details of her grievances against him in a statement released to the Daily Beast:

I’m tremendously grateful to him for aggressively representing me in my fight to regain my voice. But in other ways, Michael has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client. He has spoken on my behalf without my approval. He filed a defamation case against Donald Trump against my wishes. He repeatedly refused to tell me how my legal defense fund was being spent.

Domestic abuse charges

Avernatti has been embroiled in a messy domestic abuse charge brought against him by his estranged wife. The embattled lawyer was arrested days ago and Stormy Daniels made it clear that she would not continue with him as a client.

Now she is making good with her promise, but she's also thankful to him for representing her passionately.
