The husband of porn actress Stormy Daniels appeared before a judge in Kaufman County Friday.

Glendon Crain has filed for divorce from Daniels and is seeking full custody and child support for their 7-year-old daughter. The judge on Friday extended his temporary restraining order that prevents Daniels from seeing the little girl.

In the 13-page divorce petition filed July 18, Crain accused Daniels of cheating. He also said she wanted their daughter to travel with her on tour to strip clubs across the country.

Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti said in a tweet that she and Crain decided mutually to end their marriage. He challenged the accuracy of the divorce petition and said “the truth will come out.”

Crain and Daniels married in 2015 and were living together until about two weeks ago, according to the petition.

“We just need to get her here and have the court make rulings to where we can go home and they can co-parent as they need to be doing,” said Rothwell Pool, Crain’s attorney.

“That’s all I wanted in this matter. That’s it really,” Crain added. He admitted it does bother him a little that she did not appear in court on Friday.

Daniels has not yet been served divorce papers. Crain’s attorney said they have traveled to three states to try and server the papers but they have not been able to locate her. There will be another hearing in August.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married, which Trump has denied. As part of their investigation into Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, prosecutors have been examining the $130,000 payment that was made to Daniels as part of a confidentiality agreement days before the 2016 presidential election.

In April, FBI agents raided Cohen's home, office and hotel room as part of a probe into his business dealings and investigators were seeking records about the nondisclosure agreement that Daniels had signed, among other things.

In May, Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's attorneys, said the president had repaid Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Daniels, contradicting Trump's prior claims that he didn't know the source of the money.

Transparency groups and Democrats have argued that the secret efforts to silence Trump accusers, including the payment to Daniels, should be investigated by the Federal Election Commission as potential violations of campaign finance laws, which require disclosure of campaign expenditures. Trump's attorneys have argued that any payments to accusers would have been made regardless of his presidential candidacy, and that no violation occurred.
