She claims she slept with Donald Trump in 2006

An adult film actress is suing the US president over an alleged affair.

Stormy Daniels claims she slept with Donald Trump in 2006.

The Wall Street Journal says the president's lawyer Michael Cohen paid her US$130,000 (€104,613), to stop her discussing that during the presidential campaign.

But Ms Daniels says the agreement is invalid as Mr Trump never signed it.

The papers, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claim that the two began an "intimate relationship" in the summer of 2006 in Lake Tahoe and this continued "well into the year 2007".

Mr Trump has denied having an affair with Ms Daniels.
