City of Columbus Reaches Settlement With Stormy Daniels


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The city of Columbus has agreed to a settlement of $450-thousand dollars with Stormy Daniels, following her arrest at a city strip club in 2018.

City Council approved the settlement on Monday, with the City Attorney's Office recommending it.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested at Sirens in July 2018, for allegedly touching customers.

The charges against her were later dismissed. Daniels later filed a lawsuit against the city, claiming her civil rights were violated.

Daniels garnered worldwide attention for claiming to have an affair with Donald Trump.

The money will be paid out of the city's general fund. Daniels had originally sought over $2-million for the incident.
