Daniels was arrested in Sirens, the venue where she was performing.

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, shared a court document saying the case was dismissed on Thursday.

Daniels alleges she slept with President Donald Trump in 2006, which he denies.

Mr Avenatti had earlier called the arrest “a setup” and “politically motivated”.

Mr Avenatti tweeted that Ms Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, had been performing “the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly 100 strip clubs”.

Mr Avenatti posted a statement from Daniels saying she would not be able to go ahead with Friday night’s show.
