Daniels revealed in the interview that she was threatened years after the affair to stay quiet.

Cohen said he used a limited liability company to pay Daniels $130,000 days before the 2016 election. Daniels has alleged Trump never signed the non-disclosure agreement about their affair.

Cohen has refuted Daniels’ allegations, although he confessed to paying her. Daniels is also claiming that the attorney’s denial of some of her claims constitutes s a defamatory statement.

“It was reasonably understood Mr. Cohen meant to convey that Ms. (Stephanie) Clifford is a liar,” the complaint reads, referencing Daniels’ real name.

Avenatti added, “Mr. Cohen made the statement knowing it was false or had serious doubts about the truth of the statements.”
