In the American pornography industry, Stormy Daniels has over the years since her debut at the age of 17, seen her share of highs and lows. She has reached an enviable height in her career, although it has not been without some scandals that almost cost a president (Donald Trump) his seat. She has appeared in movies and music videos including Maroon 5’s video for their song Wake up Calls, Sin City, 40-Year-Old Virgin, and others. All these have made Stormy Daniels’ net worth something to appreciate.
In January 2018, The Wall Street Journal revealed that very close to the United States presidential elections in 2016, she received the sum of 130,000 US Dollars in payment for what was supposed to be a nondisclosure agreement for an alleged affair she had with Donald Trump way back in 2006. Of course, she did not keep her part of the bargain, drawing in Donald Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen into a long legal battle. This scandal earned her more attention, giving her more professional exposure and hence adding to her fortune.
Away from the scandal, Stormy is an award-winning adult film actress, a stripper, writer, and a director. She wrote a book in 2018 titled Full Disclosure, a personal memoir co-written with Kevin Carr O’Leary which was published by St. Martin’s Press on the 2nd of October 2018. She is a member of 3 Halls of fame; having being inducted into XRCO and AVN in 2014, and then Nightmoves.
