Earlier this month, Stormy Daniels was arrested at an Ohio strip club for allegedly violating state laws governing the interactions between adult entertainers and their audiences.
The charges were eventually dropped, but the story remained an item of interest for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that police records listed Daniels as single.
Daniels has been married to fellow adult film vet Glendon Crain since 2010.
Not surprisingly, the media immediately siezed on Daniels' decision to list herself as single.
Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, initially denied that Daniels and Crain had separated.
Now, he's confirmed via Twitter that divorce proceedings are already underway:
“My client Stormy Daniels and her husband Glen have decided to end their marriage. A petition for divorce was filed last week, the accuracy of which is vehemently disputed,” Avenatti tweeted.
“Stormy’s daughter remains her number one priority. She kindly asks for privacy for the sake of her family.”
Crain reportedly filed for divorce last week in Kaufman County, Texas.
In his petition, Crain accused his estranged wife of attempting to place the couple's daughter in an unsafe environment by having the 7-year-old travel with Daniels on her current tour of US strip clubs.
“She has purchased a ticket for my child ... to fly out on July 20, 2018 and join Respondent on tour," Crain stated in the filing.
"This will involve the child being on her tour bus with other adult performers and producers."
"This will place my child in eminent threat of serious and immediate physical or emotional harm."
According to legal records, Crain has also requested a temporary restraining order against Daniels.
Though she's declined to comment on the specifics of the situation, Daniels hinted at her recent troubles on Twitter, writing:
"I don't need or want privacy. I want truth. And it will come out. I'm not afraid."
Daniels, of course, is currently suing Donald Trump over a non-disclosure agreement that she says she signed following a sexual encounter with the president.
Trump denies ever engaging in sexual relations with Daniels.
