Adult film star Stormy Daniels will not be on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother. Veuer’s Sam Berman has the full story.
Adult film star and President Trump nemesis Stormy Daniels pulled out of a British reality-TV show at the last minute after a dispute with producers – and now the show is speaking out about what happened.
Daniels was due to take part in “Celebrity Big Brother,” which locks contestants in a house under constant surveillance. But she failed to join housemates including actress Kirstie Alley and psychic Sally Morgan for Thursday’s first episode.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti said Friday that Daniels argued with producers who attempted to “control her and produce a certain result.”
Broadcaster Channel 5 said Daniels told producers hours before airtime that she no longer wanted to participate.
English presenter Rylan Clark-Neal told viewers Friday night that “Big Brother” was “thrilled and excited” by Daniels’s potential for the house, but was unable to reach a compromise with her.
“Five hours before the live show, Stormy informed us that she wished to simply appear on launch night and then leave,” he explained. “‘Big Brother’ tried to work out a fair compromise with her, but in the end, for ‘Big Brother,’ launch night is about housemates moving into the house, not about celebrities pulling out.”
Clark-Neal also denied that Daniels asked for more money or that the show sought to control her for a specific outcome, calling such reports “completely false.”
Daniels alleges she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, and was later paid $130,000 to stay silent about it. The president denies the encounter.
Adult-film star Stormy Daniels is promoting her online store with products mocking president Trump. Veuer’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has more.
