Stormy Daniels has claimed she was ‘terrified’ by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s clumsy demands for a goodnight kiss.
Daniels met Roethlisberger in July 2006 at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe the night after she claims she had sex with Donald Trump, she wrote in her upcoming book obtained by CNN.
The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Cliffords, says that Trump introduced her to Roethlisberger, who was fresh off of a win in Super Bowl XL.
Roethlisberger and Trump were chatting in the VIP section of a club at the resort hotel, and Daniels says that Trump had to leave and asked the quarterback to walk her back to her hotel room.

Daniels says he asked her for a ‘goodnight kiss’, but she refused. She says he pushed lightly on her door as they stood outside her hotel room.
‘I was terrified. I am rarely terrified,’ Daniels wrote, saying Roethlisberger pleaded with her saying, ‘Come on.’
After she closed the door, Roethlisberger ‘stood outside, not leaving’ while knocking at her door for several minutes but eventually left, Daniels says.
Daniels previously described Rothlisberger walking her to her room in a 2011 interview with InTouch Weekly, but did not mention the demand for a kiss.
Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said in a statement on Tuesday: ‘We have no further comment at this time regarding the details relating to Ben Roethlisberger in the book.’
Roethlisberger has not publicly commented on Daniels’ claims about the encounter.

Roethlisberger joined the Steelers in 2004. In 2010, he was accused in a civil suit of sexually assaulting a woman at the same celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe two years after the alleged encounter with Daniels.
Andrea McNulty was working as a casino host when she claims that Roethlisberger called her to his hotel room and sexually assaulted her during the tournament in 2008.
A coworker of McNulty said in an affidavit that she had bragged about consensual sex with the football star, though.
The suit was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount, and no criminal charges were filed.
However, Roethlisberger was suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season under the NFL player conduct policy.
