Slimeball Attorney Michael Avenatti Arrested: Wire Fraud and Extortion

Looks like the creepy porn lawyer got himself tossed in the hoosegow for trying to extort $20 million from NIKE…… Avenatti allegedly threatened to release damaging info on the company.


“I’m not f—ing around with this, and I’m not continuing to play games……..You guys know enough now to know you’ve got a serious problem. And it’s worth more in exposure to me to just blow the lid on this thing. A few million dollars doesn’t move the needle for me. I’m just being really frank with you…….. I’ll go and I’ll go take $10 billion off your client’s market cap. But I’m not f—ing around…….. If [Nike] wants to have one confidential settlement and we’re done, they can buy that for $22.5 million and we’re done……….Full confidentiality, we ride off into the sunset.”
