‘Creepy porn lawyer’ must pay child and spousal support, but keeps his ‘life rights’ which he could use to make movies based on himself
California Judge Nathan Vu confirmed the whopping debt last week and, besides some minor adjustments of the interest, dismissed Avenatti’s legal arguments
A California court has smacked down attorney/carnival barker Michael Avenatti’s attempts to dodge his debts of more than $2 million in unpaid child and spousal support to estranged wife Lisa Storie-Avenatti.
The ‘dead beat dad’ and former lawyer for aging porn star Stormy Daniels had been embroiled in a bitter legal battle with Storie, who obtained a judgment against him last year for millions of dollars as part of their divorce.
Avenatti, 48, denied the claims, saying he owes nothing to his wife and child, and filed motions in March asking an Orange County, calif. judge to toss the $2,053,332 suit.
He also took to Twitter to claim he had disproved her claims, writing that the ‘cavalry’ came with receipts.
But in a judgment handed down last week, Judge Nathan Vu confirmed the multi-million debt and, besides some minor adjustments of the interest stacked on top of his debt, dismissed Avenatti’s legal arguments.
And speaking of dismissals, as we reported earlier, Stormy Daniels is no longer a client of Mr. Avenatti. In a statement released on Twitter after his arrest in new York on Extortion and conspiracy charges, Daniels stated, “Knowing what I know now about Michael, I’m saddened but not shocked regarding his arrest. I made the decision weeks ago to terminate Michael’s services after discovering that he had dealt with me extremely dishonestly, and I will have my own announcement coming soon.”
But Avenatti tells a different tale:
“On February 19, we informed Stormy Daniels in writing that we were terminating our legal representation of her for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to the attorney-client privilege,” Avenatti tweeted on Tuesday.
“This was not a decision we made lightly and it came only after lengthy discussion, thought, and deliberation, as well as consultation with other professionals.”
I always find it humorous when crooks can’t get their stories straight.
I never felt more satisfied or optimistic than when I rode the river in my youth.
