NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A pair of President Donald Trump's most infamous foes have split: Attorney Michael Avenatti and his porn star client Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had sexual relations with the president, have parted ways.

"On February 19, we informed Stormy Daniels in writing that we were terminating our legal representation of  her for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to the attorney-client priviledge," Avenatti said in a statement Tuesday. "This was not a decidion we made lightly and it came only after lengthy discussion, thought and deliberation, as well as consultation with other professionals."

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, followed suit by releasing her own statement and announcing that she has new legal reprsentation. 

"I have retained Clark Brewster as my personal lawyer and have asked him and his firm to review all legal matters involving me," she said. "Upon completion of Mr. Brewster's review and further consultation with me, I anticipate Mr. Brewster will serve as my primary counsel on all legal issues."
