Adult film star Stormy Daniels mentioned Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during an interview with In Touch Weekly that detailed an alleged affair with now-President Donald Trump in 2006.
Daniels discussed a hotel party she attended with Trump and said that Roethlisberger was also there. Daniels said Trump told Roethlisberger to take care of her and walk her to her room at the end of the night.
Here’s the excerpt:
IT: Was that before or after?
Stormy: After. We were still in the bedroom. We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, “I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on.” I ended up leaving and the next night I saw him again at a party. It was in the downstairs of the hotel I was in and he was hanging out with Ben Roethlisberger. When I got there, he was already with him. He had Keith, his bodyguard, call me and ask me if I was coming. When I got there, I called Keith and he told me where he was sitting and he brought me over. And he was hanging out with Ben for a long time. A couple other people around, nobody famous. Mostly people trying to hang on to them. Ben had just won the Super Bowl that year. Donald excused himself. He had to leave, I don’t remember why, and he made Ben 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. Yeah, he walked me all the way to my hotel room.
Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, reportedly paid Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to keep the alleged affair private. The alleged affair took place four months after Trump’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Baron. Cohen has denied the affair occurred.
In her account, Daniels mentioned Roethlisberger had just won the Super Bowl when they interacted. The Steelers won in 2006 and again in 2009. The interview was originally conducted by Jordi Lippe-McGraw in 2011.
