Stormy Daniels's lawyer said that the adult film star will not return to the Ohio club where she was arrested early Thursday morning, after initially planning to do so.

Michael Avenatti first tweeted Thursday that Daniels would perform at Sirens Gentlemen's Club in Columbus as scheduled, following her arrest after what he called a "sting operation," but soon said Daniels is searching “for another club in the area.”


Daniels was arrested at the club early Thursday and charged with three counts of illegally touching a patron. The charges were dismissed hours later.

Avenatti slammed the arrest as “a setup & politically motivated.”

Two other dancers were arrested with Daniels, but the performer said their charges weren’t dismissed and promised to donate her tips from Thursday night’s performance toward their legal fees. 

On Monday, Daniels brought her strip-tease performance to Washington, D.C., at the newly reopened Cloakroom Gentleman's Club.
