WASHINGTON: The porn actress alleging a sexual affair with President Donald Trump released a composite sketch Tuesday of the man she says threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot to stay quiet about the relationship.

unveiled the image on ABC's "The View." She said she was threatened to keep quiet about her 2006 tryst with Trump by an unidentified man in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 and didn't report the alleged threat at the time because she was scared.

Daniels said if she had reported the threat at the time, she would have had to reveal the affair and she "didn't want my life to turn upside down."

The adult film star, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, says she had sex once with Trump in 2006 and that Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 days before the 2016 election for her silence.

Showing a talent for remaining in the headlines as she seeks to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement, Daniels and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, have slowly offered more information about the alleged threat. More than a week ago, Avenatti tweeted a photo that he said showed Daniels sitting with a forensic sketch artist.

Avenatti says they are now offering $100,000 for information leading to the man's identification.

After Daniels first alleged she was threatened, a lawyer for Cohen demanded that Daniels publicly apologize to his client for suggesting Cohen was involved in her intimidation. Daniels responded by filing a revised federal lawsuit accusing Cohen of defamation.

The release of the sketch comes as Cohen is threatened by a federal investigation that could reveal the inner dealings of Trump's longtime fixer and image protector. A U.S. District judge on Monday heard debate over what should happen to records, including multiple electronic records, seized from Cohen in a series of FBI raids.

Daniels made an appearance at the hearing, getting swarmed by photographers and nearly falling as she was hustled into the courthouse, a scene that captured the sensational atmosphere around the case.

The proceedings took another unexpected twist when Cohen was forced to reveal that Fox News host Sean Hannity was his client. Cohen's lawyers did not detail the type of legal work he did for Hannity. On his radio show, Hannity said Cohen was never involved in any matter between him and any third party.

Trump answered questions about Daniels for the first time recently, saying he had no knowledge of the payment made by Cohen and adding that he didn't know where Cohen had gotten the money. The White House has consistently said Trump denies the affair.
