Kirsters Baish| The Daily Beast released a brand new report Monday, outlining the allegations made by porn star Tasha Reign. Reign claims that Stormy Daniels did not take action when she was sexually assaulted by one of Daniels’ crew members. The interview’s context was in relation to an ABC network’s “The View” interview with Stormy Daniels in April.
The Daily Beast reports:
During the interview, Daniels claimed that, shortly after she first told her story to In Touch magazine back in 2011, a man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot and threatened her life, urging her to “leave Trump alone” and “forget the story.” The duo then released a composite sketch of the purported parking-lot assailant, with Daniels explaining that she didn’t go to the authorities seven years ago because she both feared for her safety and, as a newly-minted mother, didn’t want her husband at the time to learn about the supposed Trump tryst. She did, however, concede that, “I always feel like you should stand up for yourself and you should report it.”
The interview with Daniels was Reign’s breaking point. She knew that she had to tell her story.
She explained, “It’s very upsetting to see her speak like that and then I think, but I know the real you. I was there. I saw what you did. It’s tricky because I don’t even like Stormy. I don’t like her at all.”
Reign explains that the incident took place on November 15, 2017, which was roughly a month after Hollywood hotshot Harvey Weinstein’s own sex scandal broke. The internet #MeToo movement was taking down whoever they could.
Reign explained, “[Daniels was] basically making fun of the Me Too movement, in so many words. claiming that Daniels told the crew, “Oh, I could be seen as Harvey Weinstein because I’m flirtatious with my crew members and I can be inappropriate.”
It was after this that Reign gave her account of the alleged assault.
Reign explained of the situation, “I’m fully clothed in my outfit, I’m standing and signing my paperwork, and all of a sudden I feel two hands from behind me grab my ass and make sexual moaning noises. I felt a pit in my stomach and thought, shit, my scene partner, Michael Vegas, is in the other room… who is this?”
The porn star went on, “So I turn around and it’s a crewmember from set. I look him directly in the eye and go, ‘What the f*** are you doing?’ and I look so upset. So I thought, OK, I can either ruin my makeup, which took an hour and a half to do, or I can go do my scene as quickly as it’s going to take and then as soon as it’s over, I can go and confront Stormy, the director who has all the power that day on set, and the man that did this to me.”
It was reported that the allegations were made public on January 14 of this year during a feud via Twitter.
I was innapropriately groped and sexually harassed by one of the men on your crew November 15th right before my BG scene. Which you were then made aware of that day. You continued to allow him to stay on the set with no reprocussion. I never questioned your directorial skills.

Reign maintains that she had went right to Daniels with the allegation. She also stated that she went to the man who allegedly assaulted her as well as the owner of Wicked Pictures. She explained that she documented with incident, but nothing came of it.
The porn star told the Daily Beast, “Now I have to decide on my next steps. I have to speak up, because this is unacceptable. And I’m not after money. I’ll sue you for a dollar, I don’t care about the money. What I want is for you to recognize, a) This occurred, and b) Here are the new protocols that people have to follow on set, because on a porn set things happen just like every other job, and they’re not being treated the same as every other job. And it’s not OK.”
