Disgraced progressive provocateur Michael Avenatti is being accused of pocketing more than $2 million in settlement money intended for an NBA player’s ex-girlfriend.

The reports represent the latest accusations of criminal activity on the part of the pugnacious attorney, who is currently being charged with extortion for an alleged shakedown of Nike.

The reports of embezzlement first surfaced in the grand jury indictment of the California lawyer.

Alexis Gardner, a waitress and barista, is claiming that Avenatti stole around $2 million that she was awarded through a legal settlement with her ex-boyfriend, the Miami Heat’s Hasan Whiteside. Whiteside is said to have wired a payment of $2.75 million to Avenatti intended for his ex immediately. But Avenatti told her she’d be receiving a series of 96 monthly payments, only 11 of which he made. The showboat attorney, who was entitled to no more than $1 million in legal fees, is accused of spending the rest of the money on a deposit for a private plane.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Avenatti’s scam of Gardner was repeated with some of his other clients. Prosecutors say that Avenatti also embezzled money from Geoffrey Ernest Johnson, a mentally disabled paraplegic man, and Michelle Phan, a makeup YouTuber.

If the charges of embezzling money from clients are accurate, Avenatti would predictably face disbarment by the State of California as a practicing lawyer. But he could be facing even more serious punishment related to white collar criminal activity.

The showboat is currently facing a load of 36 criminal charges in connection to his supposed extortion of Nike, with a hefty maximum penalty of 333 years in prison if found guilty. That would be a long way to fall for the former cable news regular touted by some in mainstream media just a few months ago as the future Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party.

VIDEO: Dana White Devastates New York Times Hack After Successful UFC Pay-Per-View

White put the fake news in their place.

Published

UFC promoter Dana White has been dogged by fake news reporters for pushing to continue his fights during the coronavirus panic, as they have worked at every turn to stop him from giving his fans what they want.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said last month. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

The push back from fake news hacks and Democrat Party officials eventually forced White to cancel several shows, but he held the ultra successful UFC 249 pay-per-view on May 9. They drew a massive 700,000 buys for the event as the public grows more disgusted with the unprecedented shutdown of society.

“We absolutely destroyed it,” White said to Yahoo Sports via the telephone on Monday. “It was a home run by every measure. The early trends were good and they continued.”

The fake news media is very angry that White was able to hold a successful show despite their complaining. There have been prominent hit pieces published about the organization in the days following the event.

White’s response is classic and shows exactly how an individual or an entity should deal with the fake news vultures when under attack.

“F**k that guy… F**k that guy,” White said of the New York Times reporter who wrote an article critical of the UFC.

“You know what happened with that guy? That guy, who has never covered the sport ever before, was writing a story about [UFC parent corporation] Endeavor… and what do you think happened when this guy who and this paper covered the UFC when they never covered it before? What do you think happened? F**kin’ story was huge. They did killer traffic,” White explained.

White explained how the popularity of his organization was propping up the failing rag that is hemorrhaging money and going bankrupt rapidly.

“Now they’re writing stories three a week, and they’re posting live results. I don’t give a s**t what that guy thinks, what he has to say, or what he writes. Good for him, he’s pulling good traffic,” he added.

“I don’t give a f**k. Don’t give a f**k,” White said to conclude his rant.

White’s legendary rant against the fake news can be seen here:

White has set a great example to anyone who must deal with journalistic parasites. His defiance has put them in their place and humiliated them on a grand scale.
