Adult film star Stormy Daniels pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother after a row with producers, her lawyer says. She had been expected to go into the British reality TV house on Thursday. Her lawyer Michael Avenatti said producers “insisted she conduct herself in a certain way”. Channel 5 said they couldn’t agree “any acceptable conditions” for her to enter.
Ms Daniels hit the headlines after alleging she had slept with President Donald Trump in 2006, which he denies. She was due to appear on Friday’s Loose Women to explain her absence from Celebrity Big Brother, but didn’t appear on that show either. Co-host Jane Moore spoke to her off camera and told viewers she had been told she couldn’t do an interview because of “a legal situation”.

Asked why Ms Daniels didn’t appear on Celebrity Big Brother, Mr Avenatti told the Press Association: “It was over a row with producers. “They insisted she conduct herself in a certain way – they attempted to control her and produce a certain result, which she did not feel comfortable with.” He also dismissed reports that she quit after demanding extra money. “They are spreading a false rumour,” he said. A statement from Channel 5 said: “Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.” A spokeswoman added: “Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree any acceptable conditions for her entering the house.”
Celebrity Big Brother: The line-up in full On ITV’s Loose Women, Moore told viewers: “There was a custody development with her daughter late last night. She suddenly thought, I can’t commit because being a mother comes first.” Daniels’ daughter is seven, and going into the Celebrity Big Brother could have isolated Daniels from the outside world for several weeks. Moore continued: “She wanted to go on the [Celebrity Big Brother] live show and explain [what had happened] and that was all agreed, she says, and then suddenly they said, ‘We don’t want you to do any of it.’ “It has now become a legal situation and she says she has been told she can’t come and talk. She says she is furious and wants to be sat here.”

Celebrity Big Brother bosses stopped Stormy Daniels from appearing on Loose Women, according to reports. The porn star was just seconds from going on the show this morning when she was told that appearing on the ITV programme could get her in trouble with Channel 5 bosses. Yesterday the 39-year-old allegedly refused to go into the Celebrity Big Brother house yesterday just minutes before she was due to enter. Despite this, she is still under contract with the show, which means she has to abide by the terms of the contract. A TV insider told The Sun: ‘Stormy has signed a contract for Celebrity Big Brother. ‘If she breaks the contract they could potentially take her to court. No one wants this to happen of course, but by going on Loose Women she was breaking one of the conditions. ‘Just before she went live on the show, Stormy was warned of the consequences and so pulled out of going on air.’ A CBB spokesman said: ‘Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed.’ Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, earlier claimed a US custody battle over her seven-year-old daughter forced her to quit Celebrity Big Brother – not an attempt to push her fee over $1million.
The porn star and stripper, 39, who claims to have had unprotected sex with Donald Trump after spanking him, was set to be the star of what producers promised would be its most-explosive series ever. But hours before last night’s launch show she quit sparking a war of words between her and Channel 5. CBB insiders claimed it was because the star demanded £100,000 ($125,000) on top of the £750,000 ($950,000) she had agreed for a week’s appearance on the show. Today Stormy was due to appear on ITV’s Loose Women – the UK’s most watched lunchtime show – but in yet more drama she sat backstage and never made it on screen. Panellist Jane Moore revealed the stripper claims there had been a ‘development’ in the custody battle for her daughter after her husband Glendon Crain filed for divorce. Jane Moore said: ‘She said she couldn’t be in there that long. She couldn’t now commit. She said being a mother is more important’. It is not clear what the new development in the US is, but DailyMail.com revealed eight days ago that Stormy had been awarded joint custody of Caiden, after initially being ordered to stay away from the child and her estranged husband.
