Shelter From the Stormy

Some helpful sleuthing from TPM Reader JD. “Michael Moshey” appears to be Michael Mosney, Stormy’s ex-husband.

Michael Mosny appears to be Stephanie Clifford’s ex-husband (I’m assuming there was a transcription error by whoever drafted the agreement). They appear to have a tumultuous history.

An October 2016 investigation by The Smoking Gun into the allegations surrounding Clifford included quotations from her former husband, Michael Mosny. He said that he remembered bringing her to Trump-related events in 2007, such as the launch of Trump Vodka and the Miss USA Pageant, and he recalled meetings she’d had with Trump in Beverly Hills and New York. He said he was “not under the impression” she was carrying on an affair with Trump. By his estimation, she thought that the time she spent with Trump would lead to a spot on The Apprentice.–52082182.html

Daniels’ husband, Michael Mosny, told Tampa police that the 30-year-old porn star had hit him several times, claiming that she’d starting throwing items all over the couple’s home after she became upset “about the way the clothes had been done” and then “got more upset about some bills that had not been paid.”

Stormy — real name Stephanie Clifford — obtained a temporary restraining order this week in L.A. against her ex Michael Mosny, claiming Mosny also got her new fiance fired from his job … after threatening the man’s employer. Stormy claims Mosny even tried to have a friend steal her car.

Mosny and Daniels have a history of domestic violence — back in 2009, when they still lived together, the porn star was arrested for battery … after allegedly attacking Mosny over the way he did the laundry.

A hearing is set for December 22 to decide if the restraining order will be made permanent. Mosny had no comment.
