Former porn star Stormy Daniels threw shade at Trump-hating lawyer Michael Avenatti and at former Trump attorney Michael Cohen during a March 12 speech at a private social club in Washington, D.C.
Daniels responded to Avenatti’s claims that he had fired her as a client by saying, “He knew that I was unhappy and looking for new counsel.”
Stormy has already hired a new lawyer, Clark Brewster, and suggested that she was planning to file more lawsuits (whether they’re against President Trump or Avenatti remains to be seen).
“Sit tight ladies, it’s about to get real f—ing good,” she told the group.
In a Twitter statement, Avenatti said he had terminated his representation of Stormy Daniels “for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to the attorney-client privilege.”

Daniels: Avenatti Was a Sleazeball Who Used Me
Daniels suggested that their relationship soured because Avenatti was an opportunist who was trying to use her to get famous and attack President Trump.
Specifically, Daniels said that Avenatti wanted to nullify her non-disclosure agreement (over her alleged 2006 one-night stand with Trump) so he could depose the president. “That was his agenda,” Daniels said.
Separately, Daniels also took aim at former Trump attorney, Michael Cohen. Cohen has stated that he interceded to pay Daniels $130,000 in “hush money” to not go public about her 2006 one-night stand with Trump.
Daniels suggested that Cohen was a stupid parasite. “I can’t escape this guy,” she said. “He’s like herpes, actually dumber — dumber than herpes…We know what a rocket scientist he is.”
Porn Star Says Billionaire Trump Is Dumb
Daniels, who has starred in more than 275 porn films, also slammed President Trump during her speech.
“I’ve slept with a lot of famous people, and if I was going to leak a story myself it would be about one of the hot ones — not that one [Trump],” Daniels said. “I would have gone with a much better choice.”
“He formed complete sentences and didn’t make up words. Maybe it’s some of degenerative something.”
Court Orders Daniels to Pay Trump’s Legal Fees
Stormy Daniels’ professional breakup with Michael Avenatti has been months in the making.
In October 2018, a California federal court dismissed her defamation lawsuit against President Trump and ordered her to pay Trump’s legal fees (totaling $293,052) — in a humiliating defeat for Avenatti.

Then, in November 2018, Daniels accused Avenatti of filing the defamation lawsuit against her wishes — a serious ethical violation and legal malpractice.
Stormy also claimed that Avenatti raised a lot of money through a crowdfunding account that he launched using her name without her permission.
She further claimed that her opportunistic “Creepy Porn Lawyer” refused to tell her how the money was spent, before launching a second crowdfund account without her knowledge.
All this reaffirms what Fox News host Tucker Carlson said when he trashed Avenatti during an explosive on-air interview in September 2018. Tucker said he felt sorry for Daniels, an aging porn star and single mom who merely wanted more money for her alleged 2006 one-night stand with Trump.
Rather than help her, Tucker said Avenatti shamelessly exploited her: “You have profited from Stormy Daniels. Tens of millions of dollars of free media, and she is working in strip clubs. You are exploiting her.”
