ATLANTIC BEACH, SC (AP/WMBF) - The porn star who has said she an affair with President Donald Trump is appearing at a Grand Strand strip club Wednesday, one day after she filed a lawsuit to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she said she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

Stormy Daniels is performing at Thee Dollhouse for two shows nightly on March 7 and 8, and will be available for photos and a meet and greet, according to a Facebook event listing from the Atlantic Beach strip club, near North Myrtle Beach.

The club's staff were forewarned to be ready for her to be in the spotlight regarding her alleged affair with the president.

"She actually gave me a heads up that it (was) probably going to be crazy because of a news release that would be coming out, but she didn't say what it was going to be, so now I know," said Jenny McCauley, director of marketing for Thee Dollhouse. "So she's prepared for it, but we are just trying to keep her on the path to get her show done."

McCauley added the national headline comes at good timing for the club and said it definitely lets people know where Thee Dollhouse is.

“It is huge for the nation and you never know what anyone is thinking or what anyone did or did not do," she said. "We’re not here to pick a side; we’re just here to have a show.”

The show has been booked for over a month, according to McCauley. 

"She has been touring all over and then we had her coming here. I mean, it's golf season so it’s our busy time of year and it’s a novelty show, and we like to give our customers what we think they will like," she said.

The appearance is part of Daniels' “Make America Horny Again” tour, which kicked off in Greenville on January 20, one year after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017, WYFF reports.

The Associated Press reports Daniels filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election, which prevented her from discussing the alleged sexual encounters.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleges that the agreement is "null and void and of no consequence" because Trump didn't personally sign it.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she wanted to go public with the details of her alleged sexual relationship with Trump in the weeks leading up to the election, according to the lawsuit. Clifford and Trump's attorney Michael Cohen signed the nondisclosure agreement on Oct. 28, 2016.

Clifford alleges that she began an "intimate relationship" with Trump in 2006 and that it continued "well into the year 2007," according to the lawsuit. She said the relationship included encounters in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and Beverly Hills, California.

Trump married his current wife, Melania Trump, in 2005.

Clifford has claimed she had sex with Trump once and then carried on a subsequent yearslong platonic relationship. She has also, through a lawyer, denied the two had an affair. Cohen has denied there was ever an affair.

Cohen has said he paid the porn actress $130,000 out of his own pocket as part of the agreement. He has also said that "neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly."

The lawsuit charges that the "hush agreement" is legally invalid because it was only signed by Clifford and Cohen. The agreement refers to Trump as David Dennison and Clifford as Peggy Peterson, but an attached exhibit details their true identities.

Clifford's lawsuit also alleges that Trump and Cohen "aggressively sought to silence Ms. Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the Presidential Election."

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and 'shut her up' in order to 'protect Mr. Trump' continue unabated," the lawsuit said. Clifford alleges that as recently as last week, Trump's attorney tried to initiate an arbitration proceeding against her.

Neither Cohen nor the White House immediately responded to requests for comment Tuesday evening.

NBC News first reported the existence of the lawsuit.
