Avenatti Makes His Twitter Private Again, Complains People Are Mean
Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti locked his Twitter account yet again, complaining that users were being mean to him and his supporters after his arrest earlier this week.
After he was arrested and charged with four counts of extortion and other related crimes, with prosecutors claiming he tried to extort $20 million from Nike, Avenatti began a desperate attempt to prove his innocence by further smearing the Nike brand on Twitter. He claims the athletic fashion giant is embroiled in a college and high school basketball scam, and seems to think posting leaked text message and email exchanges will clear his name in the court of public opinion.
When Twitter users refused to agree with Avenatti’s view, and according to the lawyer, “resorted to attacking people on my feed that follow and support” him, he decided to lock his Twitter account yet again.
Avenatti had most recently locked his Twitter account in September of 2018, when he claimed to have a client who would provide explosive accounts of sexual assault at the hands of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Eventually, Avenatti began backtracking on his claims, and eventually locked the account to prevent more criticism.
The former lawyer to pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels became the point of further derision after he admitted he is “scared” of going to prison after the charges were filed.
For her part, Daniels says she is “not shocked” about the charges against Avenatti, and asked the media to note that she parted ways with him last month, and would not provide further comment on her former attorney’s criminal charges.
Avenatti was previously arrested only four months ago in November, after a woman pressed domestic violence charges against him due to an alleged beating she suffered at his hands.
Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.
We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”
We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.
Only a month prior to this previous arrest, Avenatti told Big League Politics’ Laura Loomer that he planned to run for president in 2020, and that he would “kick Trump’s ass.”
