Stormy Daniels says she's 'far more' angry with her former lawyer, Michael Avenatti, than she is with Donald Trump, as she revealed that her alleged encounters with the former president meant 'nothing' could scare her.

Avenatti was recently found guilty of stealing $300,000 from Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, after she was advanced the money to write a book about her claimed affair with Trump.

After being questioned on the stand by Avenatti, who represented himself during the trial, Daniels mocked her former lawyer in an interview, before revealing she considered his actions far worse than any treatment she experienced from Trump.

'He doesn’t scare me. I’ve seen Donald Trump naked. Nothing Michael Avenatti can say will scare me,' Daniels said during an appearance on Mediaite.

'I only met Trump a handful of times, not even. I didn’t consider him to be a friend. I didn’t have private conversations, I didn’t trust him, and he certainly didn’t steal from me,' she explained. 'Michael Avenatti betrayed my trust in every way possible. He lied to my face. He lied about me.'

Avenatti was convicted of defrauding his former client by a federal jury in New York earlier this week. Prosecutors said he had forged Daniels' signature on publishing contracts and directed almost $300,000 in advances to his own bank account, BBC News reports.

Avenatti, 50, faces a maximum of 22 years in prison. He is due to be sentenced in May.

Last year the high profile lawyer was sentenced to 30 months in prison after having been found guilty of attempting to extort Nike for $25 million dollars.

During the trial Daniels testified that Avenatti 'stole from me and lied to me', telling a jury 'he lied to me almost every day for five months'.

Daniels, an adult film star and director, rose to international fame in 2018 after claiming she had had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and had been paid $130,000 in hush money by his personal lawyer Michael Cohen shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

As part of an August 2018 plea deal with prosecutors, Cohen said he had paid the money 'at the direction of' Trump, 'for the principal purpose of influencing the election,' Vox reported at the time.
