A former porn star, who reportedly received a $130,000 payment from United States President Donald Trump's lawyer shortly before the election, has quashed the allegations of receiving hush money.

As per a report in the Wall Street Journal, Trump organisation attorney Michael Cohen arranged the payment of $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016.

In a letter, obtained and reviewed by Fox News, Clifford denied claims of any sexual encounter with Trump.

"I recently became aware that certain news outlets are alleging that I had a sexual and/or romantic affair with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago. I am stating with complete clarity that this is absolutely false", she said. "My involvement with Donald Trump was limited to a few public appearances and nothing more."

Clifford wrote in the letter that when she met Trump, he was "gracious, professional and a complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence."

"Rumours that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", the letter further read. "If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn't be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book. But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true."

Meanwhile, Cohen also denied the reports, saying, "These rumours have circulated time and again since 2011". "President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms.Daniels".

Clifford, who has appeared in more than 150 adult films, was 27 when she met Trump in 2006.

A photo of the two together was also uploaded that year by Clifford on her MySpace account. (ANI)
