Porn Star Jessica Drake’s Lawyer Reveals Legal Agreement Barring Her From Speaking About Trump

The Daily Beast reports:

The Daily Beast was informed late Friday that porn star Jessica Drake is not allowed to discuss President Donald J. Trump on account of a non-disclosure agreement she signed barring her from any such talk. NDAs are often deployed as part of settlements to silence accusers.

“Jessica’s NDA blankets any and every mention of Trump, so she’s legally unable to comment,” her publicist informed The Daily Beast. “Jessica signed a non-disclosure agreement after her allegations of misconduct, and she can’t do as much as peep his name publicly.” In late October 2016, Drake became the 14th woman to accuse then-candidate Trump of sexual misconduct.

Drake claims Trump offered her $10,000 for sex. Hit the link for much more.

    Surprise an attention whore, seeking her 15 minutes.

    • safari

      Getting paid by the president’s lawyers to not discuss an affair is a pretty big deal under usual times.

    • Herald

      But enough about Trump.

  • bkmn
  • safari

    Donald Trump. Jerking it to porn.

  • Tawreos

    I think the NDA is enough proof. I doubt people go to that length for people they didn’t sleep with.

    • safari

      One day I hope to learn what Bill O’Reilly did that cost him $32,000,000.

      • William

        It probably involved a live chicken.

      • Bambino

        If they can find the bodies.

      • justmeeeee

        I think during the rapture all the NDA’S are supposed to be revealed to us good x-ians.

      • JP

        There was a commentator on CNN once saying that she was fired and barred from ever working with FOX or any affiliates because she complained that someone “really big” at FOX forced her to suck his junk in his office. She said she couldn’t say who because she signed an NDA and received a settlement. Seems like a contender.

      • FAEN

        He took his clothes off?

        ”One day I hope to learn what Bill O’Reilly did that cost
        him $32,000,000”
        .Whatever it was, you know that it somehow involved
        mayonnaise, carpet burns and some nylon rope tied to
        the handle of a one gallon milk jug filled with kitty litter.

  • Xaca

    Do Omarosa has an NDA?

    • safari

      They all do.

      • Reality.Bites

        But Drake never did any of her work in the White House, where they’re invalid.

        I’m sure Drake could find someone to indemnify her in the unbelievable scenario where she breaks it and he has the nerve to sue.

      • Chucktech

        Not if they’re a government employee they don’t.

    • Bambino

      It seems the only one who escape the clause is Tony Schwartz who wrote the shit hole first book.

  • Michael R

    She should honor her agreement the way Trump shows us his taxes .

    • TampaDink

      And the way he pays his bills.

  • William

    Has Drake provided a copy of the NDA as evidence? What Trump lawyer signed for his side?

  • safari

    I’m waiting for Donald to break his part of the NDA.

    • TampaDink

      I’m sure that will come by morning but possibly as soon as he’s done with his next round of golf.

    • JWC

      Donny’s treatments of NDS’s is much like his loyalty… a one way street

  • Nax

    Trump’s people are certainly masters of the NDA.

  • bkmn

    As an aside, I have seen legal scholars state that NDA’s signed for Trump’s time in office are most likely not legal since he is officially a public employee.

    • TampaDink

      I hope that this is true. If so, it won’t stop him & his lawyers from threatening people.

    • CPT_Doom

      Even this one, signed by private citizens, seems illegally broad. She can’t utter his name? He’s the freaking President.

    • Chucktech

      This would have been before he was elected, but yeah, once he’s in office, he can’t make anyone around him sign anything like an NDA. Of course, he’s clueless on this fact.

  • bkmn

    If he really was such a ladies man why did he have to pay her for sex?

    • William

      The payment was for not laughing.

      • Bambino

        It’s probably true. The shit hole is paying to protect his ego.

    • safari

      Hazard pay.

    • Ben in Oakland

      Because she’s no lady, and he’s no man?

    • JWC

      consider who said he was a ladies man???

    • gaycuckhubby

      Lots of people pay for sex. Especially celebrities. Usually for discretion

    • Sporkfighter

      Perhaps the hush money was him paying for no sex.

    • another_steve

      The Judeo-Christian god is a trickster. The ultimate trickster. This is a common element in almost all of theistic belief, regardless of which religion you’re talking about.

      For some meshugana reason, their gods create all manner of horror with the understanding that it’s all a joke.

      Provided we believe in them. In the gods.

  • gaycuckhubby

    I think this is a dangerous path for gay men to go down.
    I guess we can go after the hypocrisy of Evangelical anti-gay supporters of his that continue to support him after this. But that’s about it

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Maybe cheating on his wife, too? Of course, we don’t know what kind of arrangement he has with his wife.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Exactly could be monogamish

    • Friday

      I have no problem going after hypocrisy, especially from one pandering to the Christian Right that claims it’s ‘moral’ to oppress us all.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Right. But cant really attack Trump on this. He’s never pretended to be moral

        • Friday

          The Christians have, though.

  • Halou

    If you can blackmail Trump like this for nothing more than having sex with a prostitute, just imagine what you can do if you have a tape of him hiring prostitutes and telling them to wet the bed that Obama had previously slept in in order to play out some sort of revenge fantasy.

    Oh, but of course, that would never happen. Trump is too smart to fall for that.. /s

    • gaycuckhubby

      Where’s the black male? Nda’s are common with celebrities

    • Sporkfighter

      “If you can blackmail Trump like this for nothing more than having sex with a prostitute…”

      I think it’s more likely he’s been blackmailed for failing to have sex with a prostitute.

  • boobert

    Isn’t announcing that you have a nda and can’t talk about it, talking about it ? lol Keep um coming girls !

    • Natty Enquirer

      Maybe. A really good NDA prohibits confirming or denying the existence of the NDA.

    • Halou

      I don’t think so, no.
      So long as they don’t say what it is they can’t talk about then they’re not talking about it. People can of course infer the facts of the matter.

      It’s like the warrant canaries that some websites have on them telling users that “We have not been subpoenaed”, and the moment a subpoena is issued the message disappears. Technically nobody is being told anything about what is going on or why.

      • boobert

        I don’t know, the moron has an awful lot of them. Admitting one exists may violate the terms.

  • JAKvirginia

    He paid for sex. She’s a porn star. She might kiss-and-tell. He’s a lousy fuck. That’s why you pay people to be quiet. Moving on…..

  • sadoldguy

    Once again “Fake News” that turns out to be true.

  • Lazycrockett
    • DaddyRay

      Maybe it is referring to the news that Trump paid a Porn Star

      • Bambino

        Unless the intention is to cause the shit hole to burst a vein, politically all these porn stars hook up will do nothing to shame the congress into action. They survive backing pedophilia candidate and racist president so far.

    • Bambino

      This kind of tweet is going to kill a lot of people someday. Oh wait! We already have someone doing that on a daily basis. Never mind then. Carry on.

        I actually really enjoyed it. There was one disturbing (NON-sexual) scene though. Going spoiler font: Cat lovers beware: our Amazonian fish-dude does eat a cat. He’s then taught, however, that cats are pets, not food, and is shown making friends w/ other cats.

    “I never had sex with Jabba the Trump on on July 4, 2010. Anyone who says I did have sex with Jabba the Trump on July4, 2010 is lying. I have instructed my lawyer to sue anyone who says I took a room at Trump Tower mordor on that date.”

  • Dramphooey

    If he paid her for sex it was consensual and I don’t give a rat’s ass. This was leaked by Trump to distract from his latest racist scandal.

    • TampaDink

      This sounds like something he’d do.

    • Michael R

      Everything makes him a hero to the base .

    • Friday

      Interesting he needed to pay that much to cover it up, ….also he’d just married Melania, so the Christian Righties again are being hypocrites about the scumbag.

    • safari

      Except this is like starting a small fire to distract from the fire burning down the city.

    • DreadPikathulhu

      Eh. He’s not that smart. The only thing he cares about is showing that no matter what he does or says there are no consequences.

      • TuuxKabin

        Maybe he’s not that smart, but he’s been manipulating media for some 40 years now. He’s gotten pretty good at it.

    • coram nobis

      Problem is not that he had a fling, or several, for pay. The Duke of Wellington survived such a scandal simply by saying “publish and be damned.” Donald’s problem is (a) he felt sufficiently blackmailed to offer a fistful of hush money and (b) that the money probably came from his trusts, his businesses, his charities or his political campaign funds. That is the scandal.

    • William

      This might cause the fundigelicals to lose faith in Trump.

  • JCF

    Yoikes! CNN reports that there was a FALSE ALARM to Hawaii of an incoming missile. :-O

    Just to clarify, this false alarm went out on social media, and CNN reported the incident. CNN did not report the alarm itself.

    • safari

      It might be their first test of the missile system. They were going to start going back to that.

    • BobSF_94117

      No one ever warns anyone about outgoing missiles…

      • gaycuckhubby

        I agree

      He’s hardly known for having any kind of taste in *anything,* never mind anybody. He only cares how ‘rich’ it makes him look. At least within his usually-misguided idea of what other people envy or something, anyway.

      I mean, for all I know she could be some really awesome lady, but you know Drumph wouldn’t find that unthreatening enough.

    • Zoey

      He wasn’t President at the time so I’m not sure what you mean by “obvious problems”.

      • Buford

        Interesting. So in your opinion, anything that Trump did which wasn’t technically illegal prior to the Nov election is perfectly fine, completely appropriate, and off-limits to criticism…?

        I ask because the ‘obvious’ part I’m referring to is that the overwhelming majority of Americans have a problem with the fact that just one month prior to the election Trump was paying hush money to hide his earlier adulterous liaisons with porn stars. That’s the type of behavior that decent Americans think should be a disqualifier for the dignity of this once-great office.

            Monday is my big drug pickup day… all the good stuff: Ambien, Xanax, buprenorphine, and tramadol. Next week I should be a pleasantly purring puss.

          • safari

            Why the trammies with the others?

          • vorpal

            It’s for Cronn’s Disease.

            The buprenorphine is for chronic pain, and comes in a weekly patch. The tramadol is in the form of pills and liquid drops and is for breakthrough pain.

            Tramadol barely works for me, since I am one of the 7% of caucasians that has a much less effective form of the liver enzyme, CYP-4502D6, that metabolizes tramadol into its active form, O-desmethyltramadol, so I need about 3-4x the normal dose to get much effect from it.

            Sucks because in Chile, only a couple of pain meds are allowed, and tramadol is the one they try to push. Getting on buprenorphine was not easy, but it has really made a difference. I was in a lot of pain beforehand, but now my pain days are less than once a week.

          • Paula Key

            In general, what’s the health care system like in Chile. I am thinking of retiring to Nicaragua

          • vorpal

            If you go through private insurance (I get US insurance), it is excellent. For example, in December, I fell and cracked open my head and had to be rushed to emergency. Within a couple hours, I was stitched up (eight stitches), they had given me a CT scan, and I was sent home.

            You don’t need consults here to see specialists, which is nice, and most medications with a few exceptions (antibiotics, narcotics, tranquilizers, and stimulants) are over-the-counter in pharmacies.

            If you are in the public system, it can be very slow, unfortunately. One of my Chilean coworkers (the guy in charge of maintenance) is on the public system for some reason I don’t understand, and he recently had heart issues and needs serious surgery. He has been waiting several weeks already, when with private insurance, he probably would have had it done in less than two days.

          • Paula Key

            Thank you Vorpal for taking the time to answer my question. Would you reply ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to – would you recommend retiring to Chile. I am Canadian.

          • vorpal

            Short answer: yes, but depends on what type of lifestyle you enjoy. For example, do you enjoy big cities or smaller towns?

            I really like it here, for the most part, although there was definitely some culture shock at first.

            The climate varies across Chile a lot since it is such a long country. Where I live is considered one of the nicer parts of Chile: it’s in a city called La Serena, which has about 400k people. We are subtropical, right on the ocean, and have the Andes visible to the east of us. It is really beautiful to be up on the hill where I live and to be able to see the ocean stretching out across the horizon and the mountains at the same time.

            This area is also fantastic because we are near many of the Chilean vineyards in the Elqui Valley. Going to the Elqui Valley is really fantastic: there are great restaurants and touring the vineyards and pisco distilleries is a lot of fun. (BTW, if you like good wine, you will be spoiled here. The wine is amazing and you can buy a very high quality bottle of Chilean wine for about $8 that would probably sell for around $40 in Canada.)

            The climate here is, in my opinion, as close to perfect as you can get. The skies are almost always blue and there is so little rainfall: less than an inch in a year, usually.

            In the “winter”, the temperature during the day is usually around 15C, and it drops to about 10C at night. In the summer, the temperature during the day may get to 24C. After living in Canada for so long and having to experience the brutal -30C to 30C difference in Ottawa, I am really happy to be here.

            The people are generally quite friendly, too, but not as laid back as some other Latin American countries. Outside of Santiago, few people speak English, and the Spanish here is very difficult to understand, as Chileans have quite a unique way of speaking, often meshing words together, dropping the letter “s” from the end of words, etc. I’d compare it to, say, a really thick Scottish accent: even Spanish speaking people from other countries struggle to understand when they first get here.

            That being said, my Spanish still sucks, but I’m able to get most things done without hassle. A lot of that is on me because I should be investing more time in learning and practicing my Spanish.

            If you like big cities and enjoy getting out and participating in events and what not, Santiago is the place to live: over a third of the country’s population lives there. I’m about a six hour drive / one hour flight north of Santiago. Also, if you need a lot of specialized medical care, you basically have to go to Santiago to find good specialists, but they are excellent for the most part, and cheap: a visit to my gastroenterologist costs about $80 USD (and my insurance reimburses that).

            So overall, I’d be very happy to retire here and we plan on staying here for quite some time. We originally wanted to move back to Hawaii, which is my favourite place in the world, but with the current US political situation, we decided Chile was looking better and better. This is easily my second favourite place to have lived.

            I’m not sure how easy it is to come here and stay if you don’t have citizenship… that’s something to look into. I’m here on a working visa and my husband on a spousal visa (which is nice of the government to do, given that same-sex marriage is not yet recognized). Oh… also: despite the fact that Chile is considered a Catholic country, most people here are not practicing and are quite accepting of LGBT people. I’ve had taxi drivers, for example, go off on rants about how it is well overdue for the Chilean government to legalize same-sex marriage.

            If you ever want to come visit to see if you think you’d like it here, I’d be happy to host you or meet up with you, show you around Santiago and La Serena, and tell you more.

            (Sorry for that being so long! I’m a chatty kitty.)

          • vorpal

            Oh, also, the cost of living is great: for example, for a good sized four bedroom house, a car rental, gas, water, electric, internet, phone, and insurance, we pay about $1250 / month.

            The beef here is top-notch and very affordable. There are a lot of farmers’ markets, so the accessibility to fresh produce is great, and it is so cheap. We spend $15 at the market and come back with an insane amount of fruit, vegetables, eggs, etc.

            The only thing I miss about Canada is that there is much less cultural and racial diversity here. You can find some of that in Santiago, but much less of it outside of there.

          • Paula Key

            really, really last question. Without giving away your identity location – can you give me three or four place names that would represent what you have described. I take it that you speak Spanish. And is that Canadian dollars?

          • vorpal

            I think I gave you my location’s name. =grins=
            I’m not shy about that, really. I live in La Serena, which is here:

            https://www.google.cl/maps/place/La+Serena,+Coquimbo+Region/@-29.9077089,-89.1742211,4z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x9691ca649389f3c9:0x8a1787b3d1d84ccb!8m2!3d-29.9026691!4d-71.2519374?hl=en

            As for speaking Spanish, I am terrible at it. I live on a private diplomatic compound, though, for work, and pretty much everybody here speaks English, so I don’t get out and practice nearly as much as I should. Even then, just a hours per week of Spanish classes for a few weeks gave me a level functional enough that I can understand simple questions and communicate enough to get done what I need to get done.

            One of the nice things about living here is that there are a lot of expats in La Serena from English speaking countries like Canada, the US, Australia, NZ, the UK, etc, since many of the copper mining and astronomy workers from abroad live in this area.

            The numbers I gave – apart from wine prices – are in USD (I’m Canadian and American, but paid in USD), so prices would be about 25% higher in CAD.

            As for place names, what sort of thing are you looking for specifically? Towns / cities or something more specific?

            OH! One thing I forgot to mention but meant to: we do have earthquakes… probably usually around 12 fairly small ones a year, but in Sept 2015, we had a massive one that was 8.4 on the Richter scale. That was a WILD ride! Some people are terrified of earthquakes, so I thought I should bring it up.

            It’s actually very safe, though: because of the history of Chile and earthquakes, buildings must – by law – be built to withstand up to 9.4 on the Richter scale, and if they fail to do so, the chief architect and engineer in charge of the building can actually be arrested, so people take this very seriously. The 2015 earthquake, as far as I know, didn’t actually damage any buildings significantly, but the resultant tsunami did do some damage to properties along the beachfront.

        • David Walker

          I have complete sympathy for every resident of that state. I lived my own version of it way back. I was alone at a radio station, doing my Saturday morning shift. Around 9:30am I heard the UPI teletype bell ring 10 times, their usual weekly test of the emergency broadcast system. We had to log receipt of the test, so I went to the newsroom and ripped the copy off the teletype and noticed that it looked different. In fact, it was not a test, the president (Nixon) authorized the emergency notification. I looked at the authenticator words and they were the right ones. The record I was playing was about to end. Stations like mine were supposed to sign off immediately, but I didn’t have the right license to turn off the transmitter. Fortunately, I had the next record ready, so I played a jingle and went right to it. I don’t know how calm I could have sounded. Ultimately, I monitored our news network…they were up and running with no mention about a Russian attack. I decided not to turn off the transmitter and not to say anything was going on. After the news, around 10:10, UPI sent a five bell alert saying we should disregard the emergency, that the guy at NORAD ran the wrong tape through the teletype system. But, you know…what do you do? Turns out that all the stations were polled by the FCC and most did not go off the air, but an alarming number didn’t even receive the notice, no matter what wire service they used. Many of the announcers and news guys had no idea what they were supposed to do (our news guy walked me through the procedure shortly after I started). I was very ready for a cigarette after that. There was no liquor at the station, at least none that I knew of. Cigarettes worked.

          I remember that little event back in 1971. But it was a screw-up where the tech fed the wrong tape into the teletype. It was supposed to be the usual “this is a test of the ” but instead it was the tape announcing the real thing. They knew almost right away but not before all the radio stations started signing off with an announcement. It was 8 or so in the morning, I think on a Sunday if I remember correctly. I was working in a shopping center and on my way to work. it was pretty scary when it happened.

            I follow all the studies and it seems a growing consensus among medical experts is that sugar – rather than fat and cholesterol – is the real culprit. Too much fat and cholesterol is obviously not good for us, but excess sugar might be worse. Responsible for more disease and early death.

            Whatever.

            Our intake of cholesterol has very little to do with the levels of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol in our bodies.

            Too, there are good and bad fats. Fruit oils (olive, coconut, etc) and animal fats (organic, grass fed, etc), generally, are good. Vegetable oils are horrible. Yes, even the marketing department’s beloved canola oil.

          He lost me at Venus and global warming; except for one very tiny period near Venus’ aphelion, it’s definitely too close to the Sun to be a water- and life-world. It’s not global warming in the Earthly sense, it’s just a matter of being too close to your star.

Venus’s surface is hotter than Mercury’s, if it was still covered in super reflective clouds but didn’t retain infrared emissions so well the surface could be cooler than Earth average. Of course being just a little too close is presumably a big part of the reason why it developed a runaway greenhouse effect and the global cloud cover.

          • Treant

            Point more being, it’s not comparable to Earth’s greenhouse effect. We’re currently in little danger of suddenly experiencing 30 atmospheres of pressure and temperatures in the 400 degree range (Earth not being able to sustain quite what Venus does as far as we are from the Sun).

            Eventually, sure, as the Sun warms, but not today.

          • -M-

            I get it. Venus is hellishly hot because of the greenhouse effect from its super dense CO2 atmosphere, but being twice as close to the sun probably pushed it over a line that caused the runaway greenhouse effect that resulted in that atmosphere.

            Direct versus indirect causation. Venus wasn’t chugging along fine until something went wrong. Given where it is, it was bound to end up like this in less than 4 billion years.

    Well, if the Harvey Weinstein crimes have taught us anything, it’s that NDA’s need to go as a legal concept or, at the very least, amended to allow for the revelation of inappropriate or criminal endeavors. NDA’s are, as article points out, merely a legal run around the truth.

    • sadoldguy

      I have done bunches of NDAs (from both sides), none involved sex.
      Just a part of business.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        A business agreement is one thing. The drumpf-Drake NDA seems more like an attempt to put the force of law behind a blackmail agreement.

        • sadoldguy

          Agree, just saying not all are evil.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Still suspicious. They’re used mostly to protect impropriety, nothing more.

  • Cuberly Deux

    Gee, ya think it was the least he could do.

    “Power of Shame: Mark Wahlberg Donates $1.5 Million Salary to Time’s Up in Michelle Williams’ Name”

    “The donation came after mass outrage over the reveal that the actor earned 1500x the salary of Williams for a film reshoot. A step in the right direction or too little, too late?”

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/power-of-shame-mark-wahlberg-donates-dollar15-million-salary-to-times-up-in-michelle-williams-name?ref=home

    • Lazycrockett

      He had the studio over a barrel and made money off of it. So I don’t get the outrage blaming him.

      • Treant

        I’m with you on this one. It’s not Wahlberg’s fault that his agent can bargain and Williams’ cannot.

        There’s so many reasons to dislike Wahlberg. Being good at bargaining is not one of them.

        • Lazycrockett

          Go after the studio for not offering Williams a comparable wage oh and hiring Kevin Spacey to begin with.

        • Ninja0980

          They have the same agent.
          Williams should be mad at him, not at Wahlberg.

          • Lazycrockett

            I haven’t heard a peep from Williams on this. Its all social media outrage.

          • Natty Enquirer

            “I said I’d be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort.”

            So she got $80 a day, which I assume is a union requirement. Meanwhile, Wahlberg had costar approval in his contract and wouldn’t approve Plummer until he got paid off.

            https://www.thedailybeast.com/power-of-shame-mark-wahlberg-donates-dollar15-million-salary-to-times-up-in-michelle-williams-name?ref=home

          • Treant

            Or Williams did not direct her agent to pursue payment. We just don’t know.

            Regardless, the person to be pissed off at is not Wahlberg. It may not be anybody. This isn’t an example of unequal pay but unequal decisions at some level.

          • Xaca

            Same agent? Or same agency. There’s a difference.

          • Ninja0980

            Same agent.

      • Natty Enquirer

        In fact, Williams offered to do the reshoots for free. This was a case of sharp (or dumb) negotiating, not sex discrimination.

      • Cuberly Deux

        It’s pretty smarmy to hold an entire production hostage this way. It’s not just about the exorbitant salary it’s about naked opportunism at an entire production’s expense.

        Lots of people’s work was being impacted.

    • OdieDenCO

      good for him. now will he fire the agent that negotiated both contracts?

      What does “10k per occupancy” mean in this context?

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      I would be opposed to her running, but not because of who she is or even what she’s done; the fact remains that one of the biggest problems with U.S. politics is the number of people now in power who have virtually zero experience in governance. Best she start smaller, at the local level to gain the experience and then move up. As it is, like Oprah, she’s a name but not much more than that. Cue the accusations of whatever in ….3….2…

        The Kinsey Scale has never been “updated.” You’re just way, way off the scale. 😀

        • JAKvirginia

          Actually, no. The original went from 1 to 6. Kinsey did not recognize bi-sexuality because of a lack of data. It was updated eventually to include bi-sexuals with that becoming Level 3 and previous levels shifting down one number putting “Exclusively heterosexual” to the “0” position (which is kinda funny…). Other scales do go up to 10 but are not as widely accepted. And a scale beyond 10 can be constructed depending on how one chooses to classify the data. Kinsey’s original is my frame of reference.

    Why is there no reporting on nuclear alarm for attack in Hawaii? The fact that we in Hawaii even had to think it could have been real, scares the fucking pants off me.

Never thought I would EVER feel this way, especially after having been in NYC for 9/11. Fuck Turmp.

    It might be the gay in me, but why do all female pornstars look like typical street whores?

    Well, two thoughts:

    First, did Trump actually pay her, as agreed? Doubtful.

    Second, why doesn’t the media ask her the obvious question? Yes. That one.
