IRNA – The lawyer representing the porn actress Stormy Daniels has said he now represents three other women who he claims had relationships with Donald Trump and were paid “hush money” before the 2016 US presidential election, AFP reported.
Michael Avenatti first revealed the information at a community forum in West Hollywood, California, and later tweeted the accusation.
“Three additional women. All paid hush money through various means,” he wrote.
At the community forum on Thursday, Mr Avenatti was asked if he had evidence the woman had relationships with Mr Trump and said: “Yes.”
He said he was “not at liberty to share” the evidence because he did not have permission from his clients to disclose specifics.
He called on the US president and his former longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to come forward and disclose information about the women and their supposed relationships with Mr Trump.
But Mr Avenatti said the women, who contacted him months ago, were “paid hush money prior to the 2016 election.”
Days before the 2016 presidential election, Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 (£100,000) to stay silent in a deal handled by Mr Cohen. She is suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement.
