Stormy Daniels denounces U.K. 'Celebrity Big Brother' bosses for 'deportation threat'
Stormy Daniels has accused "Celebrity Big Brother" U.K. producers of threatening her with deportation in her first TV interview since quitting the show on the eve of its launch.
The adult actress, who hit the headlines when she claimed to have slept with U.S. President Donald Trump in 2006, agreed to appear on British daytime TV show "Loose Women" on Friday - but she was kept off the air for legal reasons. However, Stormy pre-recorded a chat with the show's panelists, and the explosive contents were edited and aired on Monday's edition.
In her delayed appearance, Stormy accused CBB bosses of threatening her with deportation if she did not follow her original agreement to star on the show - as she only wanted to make short guest appearances due to a "custody development" involving her seven-year-old daughter Caiden. A joint custody arrangement was agreed with her estranged husband Glendon Crain in August, but she did not reveal any details of the new development.
The 39-year-old explained: "The live show started, I stayed at the hotel and they came back a couple of hours later and they said, 'You're either going to go on, stay in the house, follow the contract to a tee or we're deporting you in the morning.'"
Daniels claimed to have left her hotel in disguise as she was determined not to leave the country without telling her side of the story.
Stating that she was "stressed and extremely irritated" with the situation, the former porn star claimed she first offered to appear on the launch show to explain her reasons for not starring in this year's series and then believed she had agreed a deal to go enter the house on Friday for a day, with a view to making other appearances. However, this was then allegedly reneged upon, and plane tickets and a driver to take her to the airport were booked for her.
Her lawyer, Michael J. Avenatti told WENN that producers asked her to "conducted herself in a certain way" and accused them of "attempting to control her" in a way she did not feel "comfortable" with.
Daniels also denied reports she rowed with producers over money - claiming her plan had always been to give her fee to charity.
In a statement to WENN, a Channel 5 spokesperson disputed the allegations, saying: "Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree any acceptable conditions for her entering the house."
During her "Loose Women" interview, Daniels touched on her alleged fling with America's president - revealing she thought he was "in over his head" in his new job as a politician.
