Ex-Playmate Sues GOP Fundraiser Elliott Broidy for Stopping Hush-Money Payments

Former Playboy centerfold model Shera Bechard has sued Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy, her former lawyer Keith Davidson, and Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, for the “breakdown” of her $1.6 million “hush-money agreement,” The Wall Street Journal reports. The agreement between Broidy and Bechard was made late last year to conceal their affair, according to the newspaper. Broidy reportedly stopped making payments after Davidson allegedly shared information about the affair with Avenatti, who then alluded on Twitter to a prominent GOP donor and “an L.A. woman” having an agreement. The story was then reported by the Journal the next day.
