By The Daily Caller. Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, threatened and emotionally abused his wife after they separated, she declared under oath in court filings The Daily Caller News Foundation reviewed.
In a sworn court declaration TheDCNF reviewed, Lisa Storie-Avenatti asked a California court to grant her exclusive use of their marital home after she said her husband threatened and emotionally abused her. Both parties now dispute this account, as they finalize their divorce.
Despite these recent denials, Storie-Avenatti alleged her husband threatened to call the police and get them both arrested, which would cause her to lose custody of their son and put him into the hands of the state’s child protective services.
Two days before that incident, Avenatti had called the police to demand entry into the home the couple used to share, court documents show. Avenatti called the police during that incident but challenged other details in Storie-Avenatti’s story, he confirmed to TheDCNF. . .
In court documents, however, Avenatti’s wife described him as emotionally abusive and lacking control over his anger — sharply contrasting the image of himself he has presented to the public while representing Daniels in her legal battles against President Donald Trump.

Rudy Giuliani and Michael Avenatti are going to war over the latest attempt to jumpstart the Stormy Daniels case
By Business Insider. Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels is seeking to revive her civil suit against President Donald Trump and his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, filing a motion with a federal judge in California on Thursday.
The filing claims the president and his outside attorney, Rudy Giuliani, have made public comments that allow her case against Trump to proceed without Cohen.
Last month, US District Judge S. James Otero put a 90-day stay on Daniels’ case against Trump and Cohen, who vowed to plead the Fifth Amendment. Cohen requested a stay because of his other legal troubles, which centered on the FBI raids of his home, office, and hotel. Cohen is currently under criminal investigation in the Southern District of New York for possible campaign-finance violations and bank fraud. He has not been charged.
In court papers filed by Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, the actress is asking Otero to modify the 90-day stay in the case because she argues that Trump and Giuliani have introduced “new facts” in the case . . .
In a brief phone interview with Business Insider on Thursday, Giuliani said Avenatti’s filing made “no sense” and insisted that he could not be deposed in the case because he’s “a lawyer.” (Read more from “Rudy Giuliani and Michael Avenatti are going to war over the latest attempt to jumpstart the Stormy Daniels case” HERE)
