TAMPA, Fla.—Wicked Pictures contract star Stormy Daniels' life got a little less stormy late last week as the State Attorney for Hillsborough County decided to drop domestic battery charges that were pending against the performer/director.
According to the Tampa Tribune, the incident began when, police said, Daniels was "upset by the way her father-in-law did their laundry. She also learned her husband, [Mike Moz], hadn't paid some bills. She allegedly threw a potted plant at a kitchen sink, knocked over candles and hit [Moz] several times with her hands."
But one adult industry insider has told AVN that the problems go deeper than what has previously been reported.
"She doesn't want to be in the marriage," the source said. "He isn't ready to give up on it, and therein lies the problem. She's sort of seeing someone else, and he's not very happy about it, and so she's moved out here now."
"The bottom line is, she doesn't feel like she wants to be in the relationship anymore and wanted out, and he kind of was putting pressure on her a little bit," the source continued. "If you hear the story from him, she was freaking out, overreacted and started beating the shit out of him. If you hear it from her, he called her abusive names, she slapped him in the face and then she stormed out. Then, when she came home, the police were there and promptly arrested her and took her into custody."
Pam Bondi, a spokeswoman with the State Attorney's office in Hillsborough County, said prosecutors could not determine who had been the aggressor during the altercation. There were reportedly no visible injuries to Moz, and "He did not want to prosecute," Bondi said.
At least one source has claimed that the arresting officer was a personal friend of Moz's, and that the two had attended school together in Florida.
Daniels' marriage to Moz is her third, and its longevity is in question, especially since Daniels has now moved back to the San Fernando Valley in order to be closer to work... and reportedly further from Moz, who also served as her publicist.
Unclear are the star's plans on whether to continue her possible run for Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) seat in the 2010 election.
