Stormy Daniels -- the adult film star who reportedly had sex with President Donald Trump before his election but after his marriage to first lady Melania Trump -- previously passed a polygraph test about the alleged tryst despite her current assertion that it never occurred.

Daniels, whose birth name is Stephanie Clifford, denied that she ever had relations with Donald Trump in a Jan. 10 letter released by his lawyer, Michael Cohen. According to The Cut, Daniels has not confirmed she made the statement in the letter.

After a Wall Street Journal article reported that Daniels appears to have been paid $130,000 by Cohen to keep quiet during the 2016 election campaign, In Touch Weekly resurfaced a 2011 interview in which she confirmed she slept with the president in 2006. The story was corroborated by two other people and Daniels took a polygraph to add credence.

"[The sex] was textbook generic," Daniels told In Touch at the time. "I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, 'Please, don’t try to pay me.'"

Daniels said she met Donald Trump at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006, four months after Melania Trump had given birth to Barron Trump, her son with Donald Trump.

"[Donald Trump] was introduced to everybody," Daniels remarked. "He kept looking at me and then we ended up riding to another hole on the same golf cart together."

She added that Donald Trump later came to her film company's gift lounge and asked her for her phone number. She says they posed for a photo.

According to the interview, Daniels reportedly agreed to have dinner with Donald Trump. The two allegedly ended up dining in his hotel room in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and later had sex after Daniels came out of the bathroom.

"When I came out, he was sitting on the bed and he was like, 'Come here,'" she said. "And I was like, 'Ugh, here we go.' And we started kissing."

Donald Trump reportedly saw Daniels multiple times after that night, including at his Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow in Los Angeles.

The Daily Mail reports that Daniels' telling of the story differs slightly from her friend, adult film actress Alana Evans. Evans told NBC's Megyn Kelly on Jan. 16 that Donald Trump had taken Daniels to a private party, at which point she gave her a call. The businessman eventually joined the phone call himself.

"Come hang out with us," he reportedly encouraged Evans. "Come have fun. Let's party."

Evans declined to meet but asked Daniels about the evening the next day.

"'Well, picture this, Donald Trump chasing me around the bedroom in his tighty-whities,'" she reportedly replied.

Slate's Jacob Weisberg also came out with another version of the story. He says Daniels told him that she and Donald Trump had been in a relationship between 2006 and 2007. She allegedly said that the sex was dull and that he made a lot of promises.

Weisberg says he spoke with Daniels in the lead-up to the 2016 election, but decided to drop the story after she stopped responding to his inquiries.
