Michael Avenatti—lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels and discredited Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick—was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman last week, but no additional details were released.
But now, Avenatti’s girlfriend Mareli Miniutti has gone public with the story… and told chilling details about what actually happened, in an interview with The Blast.
The Blast reports:
Michael Avenatti is accused of attacking his girlfriend and dragging her around the apartment floor while calling her an “Ungrateful f*cking bitch,” this according to the declaration submitted by Mareli Miniutti.
Miniutti claims she had been living with Stormy Daniels’ attorney since January, and on November 13, they got into an argument over money. She claims Avenatti called her an “Ungrateful f*cking bitch” and began forcefully hitting her in the face with pillows from the bed.
She says Avenatti exclaimed, “Do not disrespect me,” and then told her she could not sleep in his house that night. She says he grabbed the “wrist of my right arm,” and “attempted to pull me out of bed.”
Miniutti claims she tried texting a friend for help, but claims Avenatti grabbed the cell phone. The actress says he remained very close to her and she was afraid for her safety.
Avenatti has denied the charges and is free on bail.
