Breaking: Michael Avenatti ARRESTED on Federal Charges in NY

Remember when Michael Avenatti was taken seriously by the mainstream media? They told us that he was the guy who was going to bring down Trump and he was even talking about running for president at one point. Boy how things have changed.

From CNBC:

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested on charges related to an alleged $20 million extortion of the athletic apparel company Nike, federal authorities in New York City said Monday.

Avenatti also is charged in a separate federal case out of Los Angeles, where he is accused of embezzling a client’s money “in order to pay his own expense and debts,” and of “defrauding a bank in Mississippi,” prosecutors said.

A press conference is scheduled to discuss the charges against Avenatti in Los Angeles on Monday afternoon. Avenatti is due to be presented in federal court on Monday.

Yikes.

Everyone who was paying attention knew this guy was shady and yet CNN and MSNBC had him on basically every day back when they thought he could hurt Trump.

Pretty embarrassing.

Things have been rough for Avenatti lately. We recently heard from his estranged wife that he’s not exactly stepping up to the plate when it comes to his family responsibilities.

From The Daily Mail:

The estranged wife of Michael Avenatti claims he owes more than $2 million in unpaid spousal and child support and says the ‘callous’ attorney has even stopped payments for their four-year-old son’s healthcare plan, a claim echoed in court papers she has filed, DailyMailTV can reveal.

In an exclusive interview, Lisa Storie breaks her silence about her husband of seven years, with whom she is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce after they separated in 2017.

The fashion entrepreneur brands the high profile lawyer ‘narcissistic’ and a ‘dead beat dad’ who only cares for himself.

She told DailyMailTV: ‘Michael was partying with Bill Clinton last week, he regularly hob-knobs with celebrities and the wealthy and jets all over the country, but he still refuses to pay to support his four-year-old son. He’s nothing but a dead beat dad. He’s a fraud and a liar.

What a guy.
