Michael Avenatti’s trouble went bad to worse because of this bombshell
Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is in trouble.
His presidential aspirations are reeling after being arrested for domestic violence.
And his troubles just went from bad to worse because of this bombshell.
Stormy Daniels – the adult film star who claimed a one night affair with Donald Trump in 2006 – claims Michael Avenatti filed a defamation of character lawsuit against the President on her behalf without her permission.
A Judge tossed that frivolous lawsuit out of court earlier this month.
In addition, she said Avenatti refused to tell her how her legal defense fund was being spent.
The Daily Caller reports:
“I haven’t decided yet what to do about legal representation moving forward. Michael has been a great advocate in many ways. I’m tremendously grateful to him for aggressively representing me in my fight to regain my voice. But in other ways Michael has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client,” she said to them. “He has spoken on my behalf without my approval. He filed a defamation case against Donald Trump against my wishes.”
The federal judge presiding over Daniel’s defamation lawsuit against Trump dismissed the case earlier this month. The lawsuit centered on a tweet from the president where he claimed that the man Daniels alleges threatened her to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump was “nonexistent.” The judge ruled the president’s tweet was not defamation, but “rhetorical hyperbole.”
Daniels continued, “He repeatedly refused to tell me how my legal defense fund was being spent. Now he has launched a new crowdfunding campaign using my face and name without my permission and attributing words to me that I never wrote or said. I’m deeply grateful to my supporters and they deserve to know their money is being spent responsibly.”
Avenatti’s unethical behavior is the second time in recent weeks he has been accused of mistreating women.
The celebrity porn lawyer still plans to run for president in 2020.
But critics are claiming he should lose his law license for this underhanded behavior.
