The new book written by Stormy Daniels indicates she was terrified the night she was escorted back to her room by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to her hotel room at Donald Trump’s request.

Daniels claimed in a book excerpt reported by CNN that she was afraid when the Steelers quarterback asked her for a good night kiss.

From the CNN excerpt:

“Daniels says she saw Trump the next day after they had sex when he invited her to a club in the VIP section of a golf course (it was in a club at her hotel). That is where she met Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

He was chatting with Trump, and at the end of the night Trump asked Roethlisberger to walk her up to her hotel room. She says he (Roethlisberger) asked her for a “good night kiss.” She refused. She says he pushed lightly on her door as they stood outside her hotel room.

“I was terrified. And I am rarely terrified,” Daniels wrote, saying Roethlisberger responded, saying “Come on.”

She closed the door. She claims the Steelers quarterback “stood outside, not leaving” while knocking on her door for several minutes. Eventually, he left.

Roethlisberger has been twice accused of sexual assault during his NFL career — in 2009 and 2010.

After the latter incident was dropped, Roethlisberger was suspended six games for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. The suspension later was reduced to four games during the 2011 season. The Steelers went to the Super Bowl during that season, eventually losing to the Green Bay Packers.

Roethlisberger has earned $187.29 million over his 15 seasons with the Steelers, according to Hero Sports.
