  • We now know what porn star Stormy Daniels says in her
    upcoming book “Full Disclosure” about
    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
  • She says she was “terrified” of the quarterback in 2006 after
    future President Donald Trump had him take her back to her hotel
    room.
  • Michael Avenatti, Daniels’s attorney, said they would issue
    no further comment regarding the passage on Roethlisberger.

Porn star Stormy Daniels says in her upcoming book “Full Disclosure” that she was
“terrified” of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger
during a 2006 incident that took place after her alleged sexual
encounter with future President Donald Trump at a Lake Tahoe
celebrity golf tournament.

Daniels rose to prominence in 2018 after it was revealed that
Trump’s former longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000
just before the 2016 presidential election to stay silent about
her allegations of a 2006 affair. Cohen last month pleaded guilty
to eight felony counts in federal court, including two related to
campaign-finance violations. One of those was in connection with
the Daniels payment.

CNN reported after reviewing a
copy of “Full Disclosure,” in which she dives into her account of
the alleged 2006 affair with Trump, Daniels said she met up with
Trump the day after their encounter. It was during that meet-up
that Trump introduced her to Roethlisberger.

At the end of the night, Daniels said Trump asked Roethlisberger
to escort her back to her hotel. Daniels wrote in her book that
Roethlisberger asked her for a “good night kiss,” which she
refused. She added that Roethlisberger pushed lightly on her
hotel room door as they stood outside it.

“I was terrified,” she wrote. “I am rarely terrified.”

After her initial rejection, Daniels wrote that Roethlisberger
responded, “Come on.”

After she got inside her hotel room, she said Roethlisberger
remained outside for several minutes and knocked at her door
before leaving.

A representative for Roethlisberger did not immediately return a
request for comment from CNN. Roethlisberger had previously
declined to comment about Daniels’s previous mention of him
regarding her alleged affair with Trump.

In January, when Daniels’ allegation of an affair with Trump was
made public, it was revealed that she told the celebrity gossip
magazine In Touch in a 2011 interview
, published this year,
that Trump
had Roethlisberger walk her back to her hotel
room
 a day after she and Trump slept
together.

Daniels told the magazine she caught the Manhattan billionaire at
a party with the Steelers quarterback, who had won his first
Super Bowl earlier that year. Trump, she said, made
Roethlisberger “promise to take care of me.”

“I stayed another 15-20 minutes, and Ben Roethlisberger actually
walked me up to my room that night because Donald told him to,”
she continued. “Yeah, he walked me all the way to my hotel room.”

Roethlisberger has twice faced allegations of rape. A civil suit
was settled in 2012 over an accusation that he raped a woman in
his hotel room in 2008 at the same Lake Tahoe celebrity golf
tournament. Meanwhile, Trump has promoted his
relationship
 with Roethlisberger.

Before anything was published on Daniels’s latest allegations,
her attorney, Michael Avenatti, hinted that
Roethlisberger
 would be featured in his
client’s upcoming book. Avenatti tweeted on Tuesday that the pair
had “no further comment at this time regarding the details
relating to” Roethlisberger.

Avenatti did not respond to a request for comment from Business
Insider.
