Adult film star Stormy Daniels failed to make two anticipated appearances on British TV in the space of 24 hours.
She had been widely expected to go into Celebrity Big Brother on Thursday, but didn’t end up in the Channel 5 house.
She was then due to appear on Friday’s Loose Women on ITV to explain her absence. Co-host Jane Moore spoke to her off camera and said both absences were due to a “custody development”.
Daniels is known for her claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump.
That’s something the US president strongly denies. She claims she was paid $130,000 (£96,000) by Mr Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen in a “hush agreement” before the 2016 election.
Moore told viewers: “There was a custody development with her daughter late last night, she suddenly thought, I can’t commit because being a mother comes first.
“She wanted to go on the [Celebrity Big Brother] live show and explain [what had happened] and that was all agreed, she says, and then suddenly they said, ‘We don’t want you to do any of it.’
“It has now become a legal situation and she says she has been told she can’t come and talk. She says she is furious and wants to be sat here.”
