Stormy Daniel’s husband sues for Divorce and Seeks Restraining Order
Stormy Daniel, the adult film performer’s husband has filed for divorce in Texas. Her husband, Glendon Crain has been asking for sole custody of their 7-year-old child. Glendon has filed for divorce accusing her of marital infidelity, according to court records showed on Monday. Stormy Daniels whose real name is Clifford has revealed that she had sex with Donald Trump before he became US president. Daniel has become a familiar name for her allegation of a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
The divorce petition, as well as restraining order, both dated July 18, were obtained by Reuters from the district court in Kaufman County, located just southeast of Dallas. In the 13-page divorce petition, Crain alleged adultery as grounds for the divorce and seeks custody of their daughter and child support from Clifford.
In addition, Crain seeks a financial award and a disproportionate share of the couple’s community property. Daniel’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said in a tweet that both of the party decided mutually to quit their marriage.
“My client Stormy Daniels and her husband Glen have decided to end their marriage. A petition for divorce was filed last week, the accuracy of which is vehemently disputed. Stormy’s daughter remains her number one priority. She kindly asks for privacy for the sake of her family.
The adult film star tweeted last Monday, she doesn’t “need or want privacy,” but she wants “truth. And it will come out. I’m not afraid.
A woman answering the phone in the Terrell, Texas, office of Crain’s attorney, Rothwell Pool said he had no comment since the case is in litigation. Daniels and Crain married in 2015. They were living together until early July 2018, as per petition.
Trumps’s lawyer Michael Cohen has been examining the payment
Daniels opened up she had sex with Mr. Trump in 2006 when he was married. As part of the investigation to Trump’s lawyer Cohen, prosecutors have been examining the $130,000 payment which was made to Daniels as a portion of confidentiality agreement days prior to the 2016 presidential election.
In April, FBI agents raided Cohen’s home, office and hotel room for the sake of probe into his business dealings and investigators were seeking records about the nondisclosure agreement Daniels has signed. In May, Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s next attorney said the president had repaid Cohen for the $10,000 payment to Daniels, contradicting Trump’s previous claims that he didn’t know the source of the money.
Transparency groups and Democrats came to a decision that the secret efforts to silence Trump accusers, including the payment to her should be further investigated by the Federal Election Commission as potential violations of campaign finance laws.
In June, Stormy Daniel and two other women were caught at a strip club where they were performing. Misdemeanor charges were dropped against her after she was arrested over the performance at Sirens during which some patrons touched her in a “non-sexual” way.
