Stormy Daniels reserves judgment on ‘troubling’ domestic violence claims against jackass attorney Michael Avenatti
Aging porn star Stormy Daniels on Thursday said she is holding off on making judgments about the “serious and very troubling” domestic violence allegations that led to the arrest of her controversial attorney Michael Avenatti, and urged the rest of the public to likewise not rush to conclusions.
But Daniels also warned that she will drop Avenatti as her lawyer if these allegations “prove true.”
Daniels’ comments to NBC News came a day after Avenatti was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge by Los Angeles police.
Avenatti, who became nationally famous for handling Daniels’ legal issues related to her purported ex-lover Donald Trump, on Thursday strongly denied he had ever been violent toward a woman as his first and second wives rallied to his defense.
“I want to be clear: I DID NOT commit domestic violence nor have I ever committed domestic violence,” Avenatti said in a tweet Thursday.
“I did not strike any woman, nor have I ever.”
Avenatti’s first and second wives said he had never been violent to either of them — or to anyone else.
Daniels, in a statement, said, “These are serious and obviously very troubling allegations, but right now that is all they are: allegations.”
“We should all reserve judgment until the investigation — an investigation Michael has said he welcomes — is complete, and that’s what I’m going to do,” Daniels said.

“But of course I do not condone violence against women and if these allegations prove true I will be seeking new representation.”
