WEST HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, who has earned international headlines for her legal battle with President Donald Trump over an alleged affair she claims the pair had a decade ago, will receive a key to the city today in West Hollywood.
West Hollywood Mayor John Duran and members of the City Council are expected to attend the 4 p.m. ceremony at Chi Chi LaRue's proclaiming ``Stormy Daniels Day'' in the city. West Hollywood officials said Daniels -- whose real name is Stephanie Clifford -- is being honored for ``her leadership in the #RESIST movement.''
``In these politically tumultuous times, Daniels has proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation,'' according to a statement from the city.
Daniels is also scheduled to hold a meet-and-greet and autograph- signing session at 7 p.m. at the store in an event promoting her #TeamStormy apparel line. She also has a 10 p.m. meet-and-greet planned at the Abbey nightclub.
Daniels is suing the president and his attorney, Michael Cohen, in federal court in Los Angeles in hopes of invalidating a non-disclosure agreement she signed before the 2016 presidential election preventing her from discussing details of her alleged 2006-07 affair with Trump. She claims the document is invalid because Trump never signed it.
Through White House officials, Trump has denied the affair. Cohen has admitted paying Daniels $130,000 as part of the non-disclosure agreement. He initially said he used his own money to pay Daniels and was not reimbursed by Trump. However, Trump -- who initially publicly denied knowledge of the payment -- recently conceded that Cohen was reimbursed.
Daniels' lawsuit has been put on hold by a judge for 90 days while Cohen faces a federal criminal investigation in New York.
