DAYTON — Stormy Daniels — the adult entertainment actress who alleged an affair with then-TV star Donald Trump and a payoff from his lawyer days before the 2016 election — will come to the Dayton area for performances at Diamonds Cabaret.
Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, will perform August 3-4 at the Centerville nude revue, according to the venue’s website and an electronic billboard on Interstate 75.
EARLIER REPORT: Stormy Daniels plans visit to Miami Valley club
Anderson Cooper interviewed Daniels for a “60 Minutes” special that aired Sunday.
In her interview, Daniels said she is speaking out to defend herself, and hinted that she is now getting paid more for her performances.
“Yes, I’m getting more job offers now, but tell me one person who would turn down a job offer making more than they’ve been making, doing the same thing that they’ve always done?” she said.
This newsroom left a message with Diamonds Cabaret management seeking more details Monday morning.
In Cooper’s interview, Daniels says she was threatened to keep silent about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, well before his presidency. She said an unidentified man in Las Vegas threatened her to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump. She said in the interview that she had one encounter of consensual sex with the future president.
Daniels received a $130,000 payment days before the 2016 presidential election for her silence and has sought to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, said he paid the $130,000 out of his pocket, but has also said Trump never had an affair with Daniels.
The White House did not immediately comment Sunday on the interview. Trump, through his representatives, has denied the allegations. Daniels’ attorney received a cease-and-desist letter after the CBS program aired, demanding the porn star offer Cohen a public apology, according to the New York Times.

DAYTON — UPDATE@4:38 p.m.:
Dayton police on Monday afternoon declined to comment on the relations between the victim and the suspect. However, officers acknowledged that both men lived at the address where the shooting occurred.
“They’re working on the motivation, putting the case together to present for the consideration of change,” Lt. Jason Hall said of investigators.
Residents at the apartment complex expressed shock at Lawrence’s death, saying the 70-year-old worked around the complex.
“He was a neighborhood maintenance man, he spoke to the kids, if you needed help, he was there to help, really sad and unfortunate,” said one woman who asked not to be identified.
Most residents at the complex seem to think Lawrence was killed while sitting on a couch, something police did not confirm Monday. They’re not sure why Simpson would shoot him but say, if he did, it just doesn’t make any sense.
UPDATE @ 11:25 a.m.:
A woman, who identified herself as the mother of a 19-year-old arrested on a murder charge, called police after receiving a call from her son, according to a 911 call obtained by this news outlet.
“I just left work. He called me and said ‘come home,’” the woman said.
“And he said he shot someone, my roommate.”
The call ends with the woman saying she arrived at home followed by “Oh my God,” before the line disconnects.
We’ll continue to update this page as we learn more.
