A previously censored demand by Playboy, the bunny Shera Bechard against Elliot Broidy, a fundraiser for President Donald Trump and other Republicans, reveals embarrassing details of their sexual relationship and says he feared for their safety.
A lawsuit by the former Playboy model against a fundraiser for President Donald Trump and other Republicans revealed shameful details of their sexual relationship and said he feared for his safety after he impregnated her, according to previously censored accusations revealed on Friday. .
Shera Bechard said she went to a lawyer after Elliott Broidy became violent, behaved in a "deeply disturbing" manner and demanded that she abort.
The details came to light in the Superior Court of Los Angeles after The Associated Press and other news organizations struggled to unlock Bechard's claim alleging that Broidy did not pay a fee of $ 200,000 for a payment of $ 1.6 million.
Broidy's attorneys said the payments were halted because Bechard's former lawyer discussed the confidential settlement with lawyer Michael Avenatti, who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
The matter was made public in part because Cohen represented Broidy in the agreement. Cohen pleaded guilty last month to paying Daniels & # 39; in the & # 39; of Trump to influence the elections.
Broidy resigned in April as vice president of finance for the Republican National Committee after the matter was reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Broidy had struggled to keep secret the salacious details of Bechard's costume because he said they were fake, slandered his reputation, invaded his right to privacy and were irrelevant to the case.
Judge Elizabeth Allen White agreed to reject the allegations that were irrelevant to the dispute for breach of contract in the future, but not to seal the complaint.
In the recently uncensored sections of the lawsuit, Bechard, a Playboy double, said he met Broidy in a restaurant in 2013 and had an extramarital affair for years, exposing intimate details of his sex life.

She said that she and Broidy were referring to each other as & # 39; mom & # 39; and & # 39; daddy & # 39; and he shared personal information about his children with her, told her that he loved her and that he would support her financially. But in 2016 she became increasingly violent and also told her that she was "fat and needed to fix it" with liposuction, the lawsuit said.
Bechard said Broidy, who refused to use a condom, did not reveal for years that he had genital herpes. She said that he pushed her to drink a lot so that she was more obedient and that eventually led her to lower her guard and get pregnant.
She said Broidy initially helped her keep the baby, but then demanded that she abort and insisted that "no one can know."
She said she feared Broidy because she had a gun and told him she could make people disappear, the lawsuit said.
Broidy, who acknowledged the romance, said in a statement that he would defend himself against false and defamatory accusations.
"This person tried to extract money from me by fabricating false, malicious and unpleasant accusations," he said. "I honored my agreement until her lawyer raped him, and then, when I did not comply with her demands, she did what the blackmailers do and went public with her lies."
Bechard is also suing his former lawyer, Keith Davidson, who once represented Daniels, and Avenatti.
A judge issued two charges against Avenatti on Friday and said he would appeal the final count.
