Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, banned people from her book signing because she feared people might hurt her.

Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, told TMZ that Daniels that the ban was enacted because of safety concerns.

The ban was in place as Daniels signed copies of her book, “Full Disclosure” at a Barnes & Noble in LA on Thursday night. The book outlines her alleged affair with Trump, sometimes in lurid detail.

For those who really wanted a photo with Daniels, Barnes & Noble staff were willing to take one on the condition that there was a table between them and Stormy, according to TMZ.

Daniels wrote in her book that she received so many death threats after her first in-depth TV interview about the alleged affair – on CBS’s “60 Minutes” this March – that it prompted her to make a will.

“I had lived alone with the fear of being murdered to ensure my silence for so long that now that the world was discussing the death threats against me, I felt like I finally had some company in my concern,” she wrote.

Daniels is currently on a publicity tour for the book, and earlier this week appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” where she spoke again in depth about her claim to have had sex with Trump.
