It seems one letter is not enough to stop the comparisons between Kylie Jenner‘s daughter Stormi Webster and porn star Stormy Daniels — and the KUWTK star is over it. The timing couldn’t have been worse for Kylie when it comes to her baby name choice, which just happens to be the same as Donald Trump‘s ex-mistress, who is back in the spotlight.
“Though the spelling is different and in no way was her daughter named after Stormy Daniels, Kylie is hoping that Stormy will be out of the news soon because she hates people tweeting and talking about her daughter having a porn star name,” a source told Hollywood Life. “It’s bothering Kylie that people would even dare connect the two.”
Shortly after her birth on Feb. 1, Kylie revealed the weather-inspired name, and the Internet exploded with jokes about the similarities to Stephanie Clifford’s stage name. “I like the name Stormi but considering 45’s prostitute’s name is Stormy Daniels, I would have stayed away from it,” one fan tweeted. Another added, “Cannot get Stormy Daniels stigma off that name. Ewww.”
Even Stormy noticed the coincidence— and gave the newborn some advice. “I think it’s a coincidence, I’m not pretentious enough to think she named her after me,” she told The Blast. “But I will say congratulations and I wish her all the best and hang onto your heart because little girls named Stormy are known to cause trouble!”
She continued, “It’s a tough name to live up to, so I hope you’re fierce!” And while Kylie is hoping for Stormy to disappear soon, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Shortly after the 39-year-old adult film star sat down for a 60 Minutes interview, she sued the POTUS’ attorney Michael Cohen for defamation.
“It was reasonably understood Mr. Cohen meant to convey that Ms. Clifford is a liar,” her lawyer Michael Avenetti said in an amendment to their original lawsuit against him, as reported by TMZ. “Someone who should not be trusted, and that her claims about her relationship with Mr. Trump are ‘something [that] isn’t true.'”
