Adult Film Star Stormy Daniels' Husband Files For Divorce

FORNEY (CBSDFW.COM) - The woman at the center of a political scandal - Stormy Daniels - will soon join the single life.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford lives in Forney.

Her husband, Glendon Crain filed the petition for divorce on July 18 in district court in Kaufman County, located just southeast of Dallas. In his 13-page divorce petition filed July 18, Crain alleged adultery as grounds for the divorce and seeks sole custody of the couple's 7-year-old daughter and child support from Clifford, as well as a disproportionate share of the couple's community property.

The adult film star tweeted late Monday that she doesn't "need or want privacy," but that she wants "truth. And it will come out. I'm not afraid."

Monday morning, Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti tweeted that the performer is vehemently disputing the accuracy of the filing.

Contrary to Clifford's tweet, Avenatti also said Clifford is asking for privacy.

"My client Stormy Daniels and her husband Glen have decided to end their marriage," Avenatti began in his tweet. "A petition for divorce was filed last week, the accuracy of which is vehemently disputed," He continued. "Stormy's daughter remains her number one priority. She kindly asks for privacy for the sake of her family," the tweet concluded.

Although Clifford was a well-known porn actress before, she has sold out clubs across the country due to her notoriety as a former, alleged fling of Trump.

She has said she had sex with President Trump in 2006 during his marriage to First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump has denied it.

Before the election, Daniels was paid $130,000 to stay silent in a deal handled by Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen. She is suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement.

No stranger to the metroplex, Daniels performed at Bucks Wild strip clubs in Dallas and Fort Worth in April.

"We want to see what made the President, President Donald Trump, pick her," one patron told CBS 11 News after happily paying $40 to see the show.

Daniels will perform at the 'Dreams' nightclub in Killeen on August 17-18.
