After a court rejected her appeal in a defamation case, p*rn star Stormy Daniels was forced to pay Trump $300,000 in legal fees.

Stormy Daniels, a pornstar, has been ordered by a federal court to pay $300,000 in attorney fees to Donald Trump, the former president of the United States, after her appeal of another court’s verdict in her defamation case against Trump was denied.

The verdict by the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit came after a lower court dismissed Daniels’ defamation complaint against Trump in 2006 after he contradicted her claims that they had sex.

Daniels alleged Trump had cheated on Melania Trump with her in 2006 and then paid her off to help him win the 2016 election.

In 2018, Cohen, Trump’s ten-year personal lawyer, was sentenced to three years in jail for, among other things, paying Daniels $130,000.

The payment to keep Daniels quiet was made shortly before the 2016 president election, and it violated campaign finance laws.

In a statement issued on Monday night, March 21, Trump said that ‘all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.’

‘The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have started, or allowed to happen, and I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal,’ Trump said, according to CNBC.

The Ninth Circuit US court of appeals ruled on Monday that it had no jurisdiction over Daniel’s appeal as she missed a 30-day deadline to appeal after a lower court first ordered her to pay the attorney fees to Trump.

Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, has since written a book about Trump and embarked on nationwide stripping tours.
