Breaking! MORE accusations against Democratic presidential front-runner Michael Avenatti!!!

He’s not a presidential candidate, it’s a joke. But he wanted to be. And now there’s a new report of accusations of embezzlement from an NBA player?!

From the Hill:

Attorney Michael Avenatti in 2017 embezzled $1.5 million from NBA player Hassan Whiteside, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

The Times, citing bank rounds and an indictment brought against Avenatti, reported that in 2017 Whiteside — who plays for the Miami Heat — wired Avenatti $2.75 million and intended for his former girlfriend, Alexis Gardner, to get most of the money.



SO what happened was:

Avenatti was entitled to slightly more than $1 million in fees as part of the deal, according to the Times. But prosecutors say he instead hid the money from Garnder, took $2.5 million and put it toward a private jet, the Times reported.

“We entered into a mutually agreed upon settlement more than two years ago following the end of our relationship; a settlement that reflected Alexis’ investment of time and support over a number of years as Hassan pursued a career in the NBA,” Whiteside and Gardner told the Times in a statement.

“It is unfortunate that something that was meant to be kept private between us is now being publicly reported,” they continued. “We have both moved on amicably and wish nothing but the best for each other.”

Avenatti told The Hill in an email that “there was never any embezzlement of any monies.”

I mean, look, even if I were inclined to believe Avenatti, which I’m certainly NOT, WHY would you believe him after ALL the other shady crap in his life? He’s a crook and a shyster and will likely spend decades in prison.

Let’s hope he wins the presidential nomination.

  1. Dude is scummier than a Motel 6 bathtub in BFE, New Mexico that hasn’t been cleaned in 20 years.

  2. Scrolling down, I see that a lot of people characterize Avenatti as a scumbag. The word has evolved to mean sleazy lowlife, but originally it was police slang for a used condom.

  3. Not surprised. Boy, he really has lived up to the word SCUMBAG! When you look up Scumbag in the dictionary, it just says, “creepy porn lawyer”

  4. HA!!! You got me Soop. I was like….what the…..????

    I have no inclination to believe Avenatti, but prosecutors can be wrong. In this case…probably not. Avenatti is a crooked scumbag.

  5. I’d have liked these things to come after he won the nomination… oh well. The guy has dirtbag writ all over him

  6. He’s certainly qualified for the democratic nomination! :silly:

    I won’t be voting for him though. And hopefully, he’ll be locked up soon and I’ll never have to hear about, see or even think about him again.

  7. Why should he even get one million out of 2.7? That’s outrageous, what a crook.

    How did this creep get so many high profile clients?

  8. This guy is a real piece of work. The deep hole he’s in right now should be a cautionary tale for every lawyer in the country. I hope he goes to jail and feels the wrath of every prisoner who ever got screwed by their attorney.

  9. Avenatti’s probably running since it would be his best hope of staying out of jail. I just hope that Stormy Daniels has the decency to grant him conjugal visits in the very, very unlikely event that he is not elected president.

  10. There is no doubt that there was a time in Avenatti’s adult life when an enraged client told him that he wished to see the day he rots in prison. That person’s wish has come to fruition.

  16. { Forget about Avenatti for a hot minute here }
    This has stupid written all over it in a couple ways. If NBA player Hassan Whiteside wanted his ex-hoochie mama Alexis Gardner to have $2.75 million, why didn’t he just send her the money directly? Secondly, who is stupid enough to pay a lawyer $1 Million dollar “handling fee”?
    A lot of these high paid jocks seem to get taken by con artist and end up broke. Mike Tyson comes to mind…….

    1. @landscaper Hassan is a stereotype. The vast majority of professional athletes can’t even read at an eighth grade level, yet they miraculously pass college entrance exams. It’s a fact that 70% of NFL players end up flat broke within five years after they retire. Stupid is as stupid does. You just can’t fix stupid.

    1. @muckjumper There are currently eighteen democrat presidential candidates. If the Serial Groper submits his name to that list this week that makes nineteen people that collectively are so seriously flawed and vastly unqualified that watching them jockey for the democratic nomination will be no different than watching the cast of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” fighting for the nomination.
