5:00 PM PT -- Stormy won't be skipping out on a strip club appearance tonight after all ... she just said she's taking her talents to Vanity Gentlemen's Club in Columbus. She added that the owners of Sirens were "too fearful" to have her back.
Stormy Daniels just bailed from night 2 at the Columbus strip club where she was arrested Wednesday night, and her lawyer says there are various reasons why ... including "security concerns."
Michael Avenatti tells TMZ there were a variety of reasons why his client will not return to Sirens. He would not say if Stormy received death threats, but acknowledged there were safety issues.
Avenatti says Stormy wants to perform tonight and is looking for another venue in Columbus.
As we reported, the Columbus Police Chief has fallen on the sword, saying the arrest was improper ... because Stormy didn't violate the law that got her busted. The Chief also says she's reviewing the "motives" of the vice cops who made the arrest.
