Stormy Daniels claims Donald and Melania Trump divorce is inevitable, says former first lady’s silence ‘speaks louder than words’
Stormy Daniels, the porn star who could put former US President Donald Trump behind bars, says his wife Melania will inevitably divorce him.
The adult entertainer, 44, made the claim during an interview on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Wednesday morning.
When host Kyle Sandilands asked Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, if she had ever contacted the former first lady, 52, to discuss her alleged affair with Trump, 76, she said she hadn’t – but added provocatively: ‘She knows where to find me. Maybe she’ll ask me to testify at her divorce hearing.”
“Do you think they’ll get a divorce?” Sandilands asked, to which Daniels replied, “Oh, I think.” So.’
She backtracked a bit later, saying she didn’t want to “speak for another woman or know what she’s thinking,” but noted that Melania’s silence “speaks more than words.”

Daniels added that Melania’s absence from her husband’s April 4 arraignment in New York City – in which he pleaded not guilty to falsifying business records in connection with his alleged role in hush money payments to the former stripper during his presidential campaign of 2016 – was significant.
‘She didn’t say anything. Silence sometimes speaks louder than words and she wasn’t with him at his charge,” Daniels explained to hosts Sandilands and his co-host Jackie Henderson.
Melania and Trump married in 2005 after eight years of dating. They welcomed their son Barron a year later – months before his alleged sexual encounter with Daniels.

Daniels’ claim over the Trumps’ marriage comes just two weeks after the ex-president was indicted in Manhattan Criminal Court on 34 felony charges related to allegations that he orchestrated hush money to her.
He reportedly paid her $130,000 ahead of his 2016 US election campaign to suppress the publication of their alleged 2006 sexual encounter.
Former Playboy model Karen McDougal also allegedly received hush money to cover up her own alleged meeting with Trump.
Trump also faces a criminal investigation in Washington for attempting to reverse his 2020 election loss and mishandling classified documents, and a separate criminal investigation in Georgia for attempting to reverse his defeat in that state.

Prosecutors in Manhattan accused Trump, the first sitting or former US president to face criminal charges, of attempting to cover up a violation of election laws during his successful 2016 campaign.
Trump, the frontrunner in the race for the 2024 Republican nomination, denies having an affair with Daniels, but has acknowledged the payment.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for December 4.
Legal experts said a trial may not start for another year and that an indictment or even a conviction would not legally prevent Trump from running for president.
