Who is Stormy Daniels?
Born Stephanie A. Gregory Clifford under the sign of Pisces on the 17th of March 1979, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana USA, as Stormy Daniels she is a 39-year-old pornographic actress, stripper, director and screenwriter of Cherokee Indian and Irish descent. However, she is perhaps best known to the world for her alleged involvement in a public scandal with UD President Donald Trump which came to light in January 2018. She has had a number of roles across various adult films throughout her sometimes lucrative pornographic acting career since the late 1990s.
Early Life: Growing up in Baton RougeStormy was raised apparently an only child in her birthplace, initially by both of her parents, Irish father Bill Gregory Clifford and her Cherokee Indian mother Sheila Clifford, of unknown professions. However, her parents divorced when she was four years old, and her mother was awarded full custody, who raised her from then on. In an interview, Stormy said: ‘I came from an average, lower-income household…there were days without electricity.’, adding that she comes from a ‘really bad neighborhood’. As for her education, Stormy went to Scotlandville Magnet High School in her birthplace, from where she matriculated in 1997, and started considering a career in journalism. However, she dropped this fantasy due to the fact that she was already employed stripping a year prior to finishing school, and she wanted to get better at the business and earn a significant income, so she never got a college education.
Career: From Phone Answering to Adult Stardom
Stormy was employed back in her high school days, during which time her job was to answer phones at a riding stable. Her first encounter with the adult entertainment world happened when she was 17 years old, during her visit to a friend who was at a strip club. She was persuaded by the staff to give a ‘guest performance’, which apparently went very well, as that soon became her profession. She soon began stripping professionally at the Gold Club in Baton Rouge, and eventually registered as an entertainer with the Continental Theatrical Agency in September 2000. At that point, she had to choose a professional name, and ‘Stormy Daniels’ was created – Motley Crew was her favorite band, and Nikki Sixx, the band’s bassist, named his daughter Storm, and the Jack Daniels alcoholic drink was advertised as ‘a Southern favorite’ (and she is from Louisiana). While working as an entertainer, she met Devon Michaels, who was doing lesbian scenes at the time and introduced her to the industry, and invited her to co-star in a film. Her first scene was in 2002, while she in 2004 won the Best New Starlet Award. She has since remained employed at Wicked Pictures and Digital Playground as both an actress and director.
The Trump ScandalIn early January this year, The Wall Street Journal published that there was an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) signed between Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, apparently prior to the presidential election in 2016 in order to cover up Donald’s affair with Stormy. Once this went viral, Daniels sued Michael Cohen, arguing that the agreement wasn’t valid. In October 2017, allegations about the affair between Daniels and Trump were published in the blog “The Dirty” and in the magazine “Life & Style.” Daniels also gave an interview for “In Touch Weekly” magazine, which didn’t publish it because Cohen threatened them with a lawsuit. In January 2018, The Wall Street Journal stated that Cohen gave Daniels the sum of $130,000 in October 2016 to keep her from mentioning her affiliations with Trump, specifically the alleged relationship that they had in 2006. On the 9th of April, Cohen’s office was raided by the FBI, at which point many files were discovered, including the Stormy Daniels payment. Trump later admitted to knowing that the payment was made, in spite of the fact that he earlier denied any knowledge about Cohen’s dealings with Daniels, or about Daniels herself. According to Daniels, they had sex once.
Love Life: Married to Brendon Miller
Over the course of her career, Daniels has had a total of 26 relationships. Some of her first boyfriends include pornographic actors and actresses such as Barrett Blade, Tyler Faith, Allysin Chaynes and Mary Carey. Some of her longer relationships were with actors such as Brad Armstrong and Randy Spears in 2003, and Ashton Moore in 2002. She has married three times, firstly to Pat Myne (2003-2005), then to Mike Moz (2007-2009), and has been married to Brendon Miller since 2010, with whom she has a daughter.
Stormy has been a member of the Republican party since 2010. She appeared in “60 Minutes: Stormy Daniels/The Greek Freak”, which is the name of her episode in a show that has been running since 1968. This documentary episode attracted over 22 million viewers, which according to Nielsen is the biggest CBS audience rating since 2008. Lastly, she is the holder of a total of 28 awards for her numerous contributions to adult cinematography.
