Shera Bechard said in court papers unsealed Friday that she feared for her safety after Elliot Broidy impregnated her.
Coverage of hush money on Globalnews.ca:
She said he became violent and demanded she get an abortion, which she did.
Bechard sued Broidy after he paid only a portion of a $1.6 million confidentiality agreement.
Broidy’s lawyers say payments stopped because Bechard’s lawyer discussed the agreement with attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a suit against Trump.
Broidy resigned as deputy finance chairman for the Republican National Committee after the affair and payoff to Bechard were disclosed in April.
Broidy says in a statement that the allegations are false and defamatory.
