Pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels said Wednesday that her celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti sued President Donald Trump for defamation against her wishes and started a fundraiser in her name from which he refuses to share "accounting information."

Bret Baier reported that Daniels gave a statement to the Daily Beast detailing the allegations, but that she did not say whether she would or would not continue to retain Avenatti under the circumstances.

Daniels said she repeatedly asked Avenatti to give "accounting information about the fund my supporters so generously donated to for my safety and legal defense" but has "repeatedly ignored" her on that issue.

She went on to say that after her most recent request for information, Avenatti instead launched another fundraising effort for her, which she learned about through Twitter.

But, she praised Avenatti as a "great advocate" for her, while cautioning that he "has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client."

Daniels said Avenatti filed a defamation suit against her wishes.

She said her goal remains to stand up for herself against "intimidation by President Trump and his minions."

Avenatti responded to the news by maintaining that he has "always been Stormy's biggest champion" and has made personal financial sacrifices to defend her name.

"The most recent [fundraising] campaign was simply a refresh of the prior campaign," which he said was meant to cover the actress' expenses.
