NEW YORK (Reuters) – Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who has claimed she had a sexual encounter with U.S. President Donald Trump a decade ago, said on Wednesday that she’s written a no holds barred memoir about her running legal battles with Trump and her life as a stripper.

Daniels, 39, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said on ABC’s “The View” that her book, “Full Disclosure,” would be published by St. Martin’s Press, a subsidiary of MacMillan Publishers, on Oct. 2.
Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels.
Daniels said she wrote about her work as well as suing Trump. Her lawsuit seeks to void a non-disclosure agreement she signed before the 2016 presidential election to remain silent about what she’s called an “romantic ” connection with Trump.
She claimed in the lawsuit, filed in March in Los Angeles, that the non-disclosure agreement was invalid and she was free to publicly talk about her relationship with Trump because he never signed it.
Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to violating federal election law by paying Daniels $130,000 to not disclose information that would be detrimental to Trump.
“You didn’t really think I’d hold anything back?
St. Martin’s Press said in a statement that Daniels’ book would describe “the events that led to the nondisclosure agreement and behind the scenes efforts to intimidate her. ”
In April, Daniels filed a defamation lawsuit against Trump in a Manhattan court asserting that he had falsely attacked her truthfulness.
Earlier this year, Daniels said that in 2011 she had been assailed by a guy in a Las Vegas Parking Lot who threatened her when she discussed her alleged sexual encounter with Trump. In a tweet Trump described her claim as a “complete con job. ”
