Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who filed a defamation lawsuit back in April against President Trump, has canceled a scheduled appearance in Western New York.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, was scheduled to make appearances at Scores Gentlemen's Club in Tonawanda August 10th and 11th. It was set to be one of dozens of stops she is making across the country into the summer. 

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, previously filed a lawsuit claiming Trump attempted to tarnish her reputation by dismissing her account and description of a man she claims threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 as she was ready to go public about an alleged affair with Trump.

In a tweet, the President called the composite sketch released by Daniels' attorney "a total con job."

In a separate suit, Daniels is suing the personal attorney of Trump, Michael Cohen, over the legality of a 2016 hush agreement in which she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about the alleged affair. 

The President has denied ever having an affair with Daniels.
