Stormy Daniels is planning a trip Down Under
ADULT film star Stormy Daniels has confirmed she is planning a trip to Australia after she was snapped reading an Australian travel guide.
The 39-year-old was pictured walking alone along the beach in Long Island, New York, with the travel guide in hand.
The pictures of her pouting while looking longingly at the book were shopped around to media outlets and, while she might be trying to look candid, it was clear she was purposefully hinting at a trip.
The porn star was overheard telling one of her bodyguards that she "always wanted to go to Australia".
She added that "when she can get away" from the controversy surrounding her and US President Donald Trump, she wanted to visit Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef.
The married mum of one, currently touring strip clubs around the US as well as making regular TV appearances, was also overheard joking: "I feel like the American version of Vegemite. People either love me or hate me."
Ms Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been dominating the headlines over her alleged affair with Mr Trump.
"Hush money" totalling $US130,000 Ms Daniels received shortly before the November 2016 presidential election from Mr Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been the subject of much speculation.
Mr Trump previously denied any knowledge of this payment but admitted last week on Twitter that Mr Cohen was reimbursed for the money.
In his Tweet, the president wrote that Mr Cohen "received a monthly retainer … from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a nondisclosure agreement".
"The agreement was used to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair despite already having signed a detailed letter admitting that there was no affair," Mr Trump wrote.
"Prior to its violation by Ms Clifford and her lawyer, this was a private agreement. Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll [sic] in this transaction."
The latest revelation forced White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to explain her contradictory statements to the media about Ms Daniels.
When asked about Mr Trump's admission, Ms Sanders said: "This was information that the President didn't know at the time but eventually learned.
"We give the very best information that we have at the time."
The President's admission caused Ms Sanders to come under fire, with a top Republican Trump critic attacking her for "misleading" the country.
Charlie Dent told CNN he believed it was time to ask: "How does Sarah Huckabee Sanders go to work every day if she was sent out there to mislead the American people?"
Ms Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti called the admission "a stunning revelation".
"Mr Trump evidently has participated in a felony and there must be serious consequences for his conduct and his lies and deception to the American people," Mr Avenatti said in a statement.
