Porn Star: Trump's Lawyer Trying To Unfairly Silence Me. Lawyer: There's One Problem.

Porn star Stormy Daniels is back in the news about her alleged "intimate" relationship with Donald Trump years ago after filing a lawsuit on Tuesday that in part accuses Trump's attorney Michael Cohen of attempting to "intimidate" and "shut her up" through a "bogus" arbitration hearing. But Trump's legal team says that it's simply enforcing what's there in black and white in the NDA Daniels signed.

Daniels has been in and out of headlines over the last year teasing her big reveal of juicy details about the alleged affair, but has repeatedly stopped short, citing legal restrictions due to an NDA agreement worth a reported $130,000. Trump, meanwhile, has consistently denied all of her allegations.

On Tuesday, Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles court alleging that the NDA is invalid because Trump never signed it and accusing Team Trump of unfairly trying to "intimidate" her through "surreptitiously" filing a restraining order against her on February 27.

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and 'shut her up' in order to 'protect Mr. Trump' continue unabated," Daniels suit states. "On or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump's attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles."

"On that day, Cohen obtained a temporary restraining order against Clifford from the private arbitrator, a retired judge, which bars her from disclosing 'confidential information' related to the nondisclosure agreement signed in October 2016," NBC News reports.

Cohen sent the restraining order to Daniels' attorney the next day and specified in an email that the judge ordered that the order must remain confidential per the NDA. But Daniels' team released the order to the media anyhow.

Asked for comment, Cohen's attorney, Lawrence Rosen, told NBC that his client was simply enforcing the NDA that Daniels signed, which includes filing exactly the kind of injunction he filed on February 27. "The designated judge from the arbitration tribunal found that Ms. Clifford had violated the agreement and enjoined her from, among other things, filing this lawsuit," Rosen said in the statement to NBC.

Daniels has been making the media rounds over the last year, including an infamous appearance with Jimmy Kimmel before which she suggested that she would reveal some tantalizing information but ended up throwing cold water on the appearance just hours before by again reiterating her public denial that anything happened between her and Trump.

"Over the past few weeks I have been asked countless times to comment on reports of an alleged sexual relationship I had with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago," Daniels said in a statement. "The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 2011, 2016, 2017 and now again in 2018. I am not denying the affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened."
