Avenatti was arrested Wednesday afternoon on the 10000 block of Santa Monica Boulevard
and police say he was booked on suspicion of domestic violence.
Prosecutors will ultimately determine whether formal charges will be filed against Avenatti
but they have not yet received his case for review, a Los Angeles District Attorney’s office
spokesman said Thursday. Avenatti is due in court on Dec. 5, police said.
After his arrest, Avenatti’s ex-wife and his second wife, Lisa Storie-Avenatti,
with whom he is in the midst of a divorce, released statements defending Avenatti,
saying he had never demonstrated evidence of violence. Upon his release from jail,
Avenatti told reporters he had never struck a woman and welcomed a full investigation,
which he predicted would clear him.
Also Thursday, Avenatti’s most prominent client, Stephanie Clifford, better known by her porn name Stormy Daniels,
released a statement saying that if the allegations against Avenatti were true she would seek other representation.
But she urged that “we should all reserve judgment” until an investigation is completed.
My outrage is firmly aimed at the OP, so what, big deal.
"So we're just done with phrasing, right, that's not a thing anymore?."
