'Trump's lawyer Cohen paid hush money to porn actor'

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen had arranged for $130,000 in hush money to be sent to porn star Stormy Daniels a month before the 2016 election.

Gossip about the Trump-Daniels relationship first surfaced on a website called TheDirty.com in October 2011, with a post entitled:"World Exclusive: Donald Trump Cheats on His Wife Melania Trump While She Was Pregnant".

Cohen pushed back forcefully on the report, presenting a letter - signed by "Stormy Daniels", real name Stephanie Clifford - that claimed she never had sex with Trump. "Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities.' I was like, 'Oh I really didn't need to hear that!' Then she said he offered her keys to his condos in Florida, and I was like, 'Wow guess you had a good night, ' and that was the last we ever spoke of it".

When they got talking, Daniels reportedly invited Evans to join her in the evening, during which she was supposed to "hang out" with Trump.

But Evans said she wasn't intrigued and told her friend she had other plans. "Stormy said Donald knew exactly who she was and wanted to meet her".

After she returned to her room, Drake said, Trump called her asking her to return to his suite and invited her to a party.

"'Let's have some fun!"

"President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels", Cohen wrote the publication in a statement. "Come to the party, we're waiting for you, '" the Daily Beast quoted Evans as saying. "So I bailed on them and turned my phone off".

Trump has also been linked with Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal, who, according to the Wall Street Journal, received $150,000 from the National Enquirer for a tell-all expose on her alleged ten-month affair with Trump from 2006 to 2007.

"My involvement with Donald Trump was limited to a few public appearances and nothing more", she wrote in a statement, dated January 10, according to CNN "When I met Donald Trump, he was gracious, professional and a complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence". "If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn't be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book".

Nonetheless, Daniels posed with Trump for a photo at the celebrity golf event that she ended up posting to her MySpace page.

Daniels is not the only porn star Trump supposedly tried to bed during the golf tournament.
