Daniels was arrested in Columbus, Ohio, this month and charged with three misdemeanors. Local police accused her of pressing customers’ faces into her chest during her performance at a local strip club, fondling their breasts and grabbing the buttocks of one the officers. Police ultimately dropped the charges against her. Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs issued a statement on Twitter last week, calling Daniels’ arrest a mistake and saying the arresting officers’ actions would be reviewed.
Dennis Williams, the Pink Pony’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, said he learned from Daniels’ representatives late Friday that she had cancelled all of her public appearances for the next two months. Avenatti said it is “completely false” that Daniels is canceling her appearances for the next two months. Further, Williams called the short notice of her cancellation at his club Friday “extremely unprofessional.”
“On behalf of myself, the staff and the entertainers at the Pink Pony, we are just greatly disappointed and hurt by this news,” Williams said, adding the club had spent money promoting the event and must now refund some sales. “It will be business as usual Sunday night without Stormy Daniels appearing.”
One of Daniels’ booking agents, Danny Capozzi, said he was about to board a flight Friday and could not immediately comment about the cancellation at the Pink Pony.
