Just when you thought there couldn’t be anything more on sleazeball lawyer-to-the-(porn)-stars, michael avenatti…
…we have this, from Bradford Betz’s article at foxnews.com:
On Wednesday, the 47-year-old lawyer reached a divorce settlement with his estranged wife that will require him to hand over thousands of dollars and other assets for liquidation, according to court filings.
The court filings in Orange County, Calif., as reported by TMZ, indicate a judge has ordered Avenatti to pay his wife Lisa Storie-Avenatti $162,295 per month in child and spousal support retroactive to Jan. 1, 2018. The combined total amounts to more than $1.9 million upfront.
In addition, the judge ordered Avenatti to fork over his assets for liquidation including five luxury wristwatches – some worth $50,000 – a Frank Gehry sculpture, several pricey works of art, and a 2017 Ferrari 488 GT Spider worth about $300,000, according to the report. The judge also mandated that Avenatti’s law firm, Avenatti & Associates, transfer its interest in a 2016 Honda private jet.
Oooohhh, the horror. Gone are five luxury wristwatches, the Gehry sculpture, the private jet and the Ferrari.
I’d say losing the Ferrari reminds me of Bette Midler’s husband (played to the hilt by Dan Hedaya) losing his Ferrari in The First Wives Club…except this is avenatti’s second wife. God only knows what the first one got.
Oh well, at least he can go home to his new live-in girlfriend Mareli Miniutti…oh, wait, she left, and accused him of physical abuse.
But then there’s that aged-out former porn star who now strips for a living, stormy danie…oh, wait again. She claims he mishandled her case, screwed around with the money it generated, and says she’s thinking of dumping him too.
Y’know, maybe avenatti should reconsider dropping out of the race to become the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020. It may be the only thing left that he has a shot at.
