Former porn star Stormy Daniels was ordered by a federal court to pay Donald Trump $300,000 in attorney fees after it rejected her appeal to another’s court ruling in her defamation case against the former president.

In a statement issued on Monday, Trump celebrated the news and said that ‘all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.’

‘The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have started, or allowed to happen, and I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal,’ Trump said, according to CNBC.

The ruling by the the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit followed an earlier ruling by a lower court that rejected Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump after he refuted her claims that they had sex in 2006.

The lengthy legal battle has set a chain reaction of appeals, with attorneys for both parties being convicted of felonies.

Last month, US celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti was found guilty  of stealing $300,000 from Daniels, who was due the money for writing a book about her alleged tryst with Trump.
