Porn star Stormy Daniels (real name: Stephanie Clifford), who claims to have had an affair with President Trump, filed a suit against him on Monday, NBC News reports.

The details: The suit reportedly claims the non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election is invalid because, while it included a line for Trump's signature, he never signed it. It claims that Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, has attempted to "intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and 'shut her up' in order to 'protect Mr. Trump.'"

  • The suit claims Clifford and Trump had an intimate relationship that lasted from summer 2006 "well into the year 2007."
  • Cohen has admitted to paying Clifford $130,000 as part of the deal, but says Trump wasn't aware of the payment. The suit claims he was, in fact, aware.
  • Clifford wants the court to rule the agreements "were never formed, and therefore do not exist, because, among other things, Mr. Trump never signed the agreements."
