Michael Avenatti, the attorney for a porn actress who claims she was paid hush money to keep silent about an alleged affair with Donald Trump, has reportedly been arrested for domestic violence.

Avenatti’s estranged wife, Lisa Storie, filed a criminal complaint against the lawyer with authorities in Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Storie’s face was ‘swollen and bruised’ when she submitted her complaint to authorities.

The alleged incident took place on Tuesday at an apartment in the Century City section of Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting.

Sources told TMZ that the couple had another confrontation on Wednesday.

Storie was seen Wednesday running out of the apartment and screaming into her cell phone while wearing sunglasses to conceal the alleged bruises on her face.

‘I can’t believe you did this to me,’ she reportedly yelled into the phone.

Security guards then led Storie back inside the building, according to TMZ.

Five minutes later, Avenatti showed up and ran into the building, chasing after her.

‘She hit me first,’ Avenatti is reported to have said repeatedly.

‘This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***,’ he angrily said.

Investigators told TMZ that Avenatti kicked Storie out of his apartment on Tuesday, which was when the alleged incident took place.

Storie then returned to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her things and asked police to wait nearby in case things escalated.

The couple married in 2011. Avenatti filed for divorced last year.

He is reported to be in police custody.

Storie called her estranged husband ’emotionally abusive’, ‘hot-tempered’ and ‘angry and vindictive’ in court documents last year.

The pair began proceedings in November, when Storie filed in Los Angeles before having her petition dismissed.

It was later moved to a court in Orange County and Avenatti was the one who filed the papers.

In one document which was obtained by Fox News, Storie described an incident at their $17million home where she said her ex-husband became ‘verbally aggressive’.

She has since retracted her description of him and said the pair are trying to divorce civilly and in private.

She said there had never been any form of abuse – physical, emotional or verbal – between them and described him as a ‘good man’ of whom she has never been afraid.

Avenatti has also told DailyMail.com that he never abused his wife, the mother of his son, in any way.

The court document reads: ‘[Avenatti] is hot tempered and used to having his way – when he doesn’t he gets extremely loud and verbally aggressive. ‘

It goes on to describe an incident on December 17 when he arrived at their home to find Storie had changed the locks on their home.

‘I offered for him to be with [their son] for 9am to 7pm with a nanny present. He took umbrage with the request, showed up with his 15-year-old daughter and demanded access to the house…he immediately started yelling at me,’ she said in the documents.

In her statement in May – after telling Fox News that she was frustrated that their divorce had not yet been finalized – Storie painted her estranged husband differently.

‘Michael has in the past been a loving and caring husband and is a loving and caring father. I never called the police because I was never threatened with harm. I never sought to have him excluded from our home because I felt threatened or feared for my safety or that of my son.

‘Further, he has paid all child support and spousal support. He is a good man.

Storie added that journalists were trying to ‘harm him’ with a ‘defamatory story that has no basis in reality’.

Avenatti told DailyMail.com in May: ‘There was never any abuse, alleged or otherwise, by me in my relationship with my wife.’

‘There are a host of things that I could disclose relating to Lisa, her habits and the circumstances around her filing but I will decline to do so at this time as she is the mother to my son and I do not think it is appropriate to malign her,’ he added.

In May, Storie told Fox News: ‘I need to be divorced and if [Michael Avenatti] continues to paint the narrative, he can ignore our case! Everyone reports we are divorced. That does not help my goal to get a divorce.

Don Lemon’s boyfriend implied ‘liberal’ CNN star went easy on pal Avenatti!!

CNN host Don Lemon has been dating Tim Malone since 2017, according to published reports. (Sipa USA)

Don Lemon’s boyfriend told a reporter the CNN star gave Stormy Daniels’ attorney the kid-glove treatment in a Monday interview that followed a blistering expose, and referred to the news network as “liberal media” in a baffling exchange.

Tim Malone, a media ad sales executive, made the shocking disclosures in a Twitter direct message conversation with Daily Caller reporter Joe Simonson. It came after Michael Avenatti appeared on “CNN Tonight” on the heels of a Daily Caller report on Avenatti’s shady past dealings. Lemon served up softballs, and Malone had a ready explanation.

“Malone also appears to believe that Avenatti has befriended the liberal media, but that his time as journalists’ golden boy may be running out,” Simonson wrote in an exclusive story about the strange colloquy initiated by Malone.

Prior to the appearance, Avenatti, who represents the porn star who claims to have had a fling with President Trump, had accused The Daily Caller of publishing “hit pieces.” He told Simonson’s colleague, Peter Hasson, in an email that he would sue his colleagues and the publication for defamation if they didn’t stop writing “lies and defamatory statements.”

In the Monday night interview, Lemon gently broached the issue, asking Avenatti about his threats against the conservative news site. Avenatti replied cryptically that “there is (sic) good journalists, and there is (sic) bad journalists,” during a long-winded answer in which he did not elaborate on his grievance. Lemon didn’t push back about why Avenatti felt the Daily Caller wronged him in its expose.

In the Twitter exchange that followed the interview, Simonson asked Malone if he thought Lemon erred by not pressing Avenatti.

“I guess, yeah,” Malone told Simonson, according to the reporter. “Ha, he won’t [sue]. I think it’s all a game. Who knows?”

Malone initially declined to elaborate, but then offered an explanation as to why Lemon tossed softballs to Avenatti.

“You don’t think Avenatti is smart enough to try and befriend the liberal media?” he said, according to Simonson, implying that Lemon and the attorney are friends.

Simonson says he then asked Malone how his boyfriend could be friends with Avenatti “considering his intimidation tactics against other journalists.”

According to Simonson, Malone said the media is going “way too easy” on the porn lawyer, and feels the Daily Caller has been “fair.”

“Honestly, I think it’s all a game, everyone is profiting, and doing what rates for their audience,” Malone said, according to Simonson. “People need to dig more. But they are starting.”

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As for Simonson, when reached for comment about the bewildering interview with Malone, he issued the following statement: “I was and remain confused.”

Obama’s “Gay Lover” Breaks His Silence!

A gay man’s feelings have been hurt.

Larry Sinclair says he had a drug-induced sexual affair with a married Barack Obama, and no one seems to care, while Stormy Daniels has become a household name for allegedly having sex with Donald Trump.

Sinclair revealed that he and Obama hooked up for a steamy two-day love affair back in 1999, when Obama was a member of the Illinois State Senate.

He doesn’t understand why the media is all but ignoring his affair with Obama, while at the same time focusing so much attention on Daniels, the porn star who claims she got down and dirty with Trump in 2006, not long after he had married Melania.

“Stormy Daniels is being pimped and pimping the media now and it’s lining her pockets,” Sinclair told The Washington Examiner. “I believe she had sex with him. Do I believe she’s trying to twist and add to it to benefit her interests? You’re damn right I do.”

So, why all the attention on Daniels, while all but ignoring Obama’s alleged GAY affair and drug use?

Sinclair was wondering the same:

“I find this whole double standard sickening, and no I am not a bigger supporter of Trump, but I am a supporter of fair and unbiased media coverage.”

What’s in those seized records? Trump’s biggest new worry!

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and his allies have hit a new level of anxiety after the raid on his personal attorney’s office, fearful of deeper exposure for Trump, his inner circle and his adult children — and more than concerned that they don’t know exactly what is in those records and electronic devices seized last week.

There is also some worry that Michael Cohen, the self-described legal fixer who helped make bad stories go away and took a leading role in Trump Organization projects in foreign outposts, may strike a deal with prosecutors out of concern about his own prospects.

“I think it’s a huge minefield for Donald Trump and the Trump Organization,” said trial attorney Joseph Cammarata, who represented Paula Jones in her sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton. “I think this is on its own track and this train is coming down the track with brute force.”

The wild legal show continued to play out Monday, at a court hearing in New York before a federal judge who is considering what to do with the material that the FBI seized from Cohen. The scene was punctuated by dramatic entrances and revelations. Stormy Daniels — the porn actress who alleged she had a sexual affair with the president — made an appearance, stumbling on her high heels as she was swarmed by press. Cohen was forced to reveal that another one of his clients is Fox News host Sean Hannity, a high-profile confidant of the president.

Trump left the White House for Florida, for a two-day summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the president’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Advisers are hoping the meeting will draw attention from the legal tempest in Washington and New York.

On the trip south, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to put distance between Trump and Cohen, saying: “I believe they’ve still got some ongoing things, but the president has a large number of attorneys, as you know.”

The federal raid, carried out a week ago in New York City, sought bank records, information on Cohen’s dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen’s communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments he made in 2016 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and to Daniels, both of whom allege relationships with Trump. The court proceedings Monday dealt with who gets to look at Cohen’s seized documents and devices before they are turned over to prosecutors.

Though Cohen once said he “would take a bullet” for Trump, he is aware of the possible outcome — including potential prison time — and has expressed worry about his family, said a person who has spoken to the lawyer in recent days but is not authorized to discuss private conversations. Cohen has not been charged with anything.

Trump’s moods have grown darker in recent days, as he lashes out at the “overreach” of the raid. Further angering the president is that the raid was triggered in part by a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The raid was authorized by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

On Twitter Sunday, Trump said that all lawyers are now “deflated and concerned” by the FBI raid on Cohen, adding that “Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past.” Trump has also taken to downplaying Cohen’s role.

The president also inveighed further against former FBI Director James Comey, who said Monday morning that Trump was morally unfit to be president. That was a few hours after Comey said the same and worse in a highly promoted ABC interview.

Many in the White House view the aftershocks of the Cohen raid as potentially more threatening than Mueller’s Russia probe, fearful of what skeletons may be in the lawyer’s closets, according to five officials and outside allies who all spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

“I agree with the consensus forming that it’s very dangerous for the president, probably the most serious thing yet,” said Sol Wisenberg, a defense attorney who was a deputy independent counsel during the Starr special counsel investigation into Clinton. “Even if you shut Mueller down some way, how do you shut down the Southern District (federal court)?”

Trump’s anger at the probe has intensified, with him musing publicly about firing Mueller and the man who authorized the probe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Those around Trump have hoped that this week’s visit to Mar-a-Lago, where he is generally happier, along with the tightly scheduled summit with Abe, would somewhat distract him from Cohen and from Comey’s ongoing publicity tour.

But White House aides have also expressed worry that they can control Trump less at his palatial Florida estate, where he is known to seek out counsel from club members and get revved up by their at-times provocative advice. One recent presidential dinner guest was Hannity, a longtime Trump ally whose connection to Cohen shed more light on the attorney who was more than just a lawyer for Trump.

Cohen has long been a key power center in the Trump Organization and a fixture along the edges of Trump’s nascent political life. In Cohen’s own estimation, he is Trump’s Ray Donovan, the bruising television character who takes whatever steps are needed to fix problems for the tycoon he serves.

He has regularly threatened lawsuits against those who pose a challenge to Trump. He has berated reporters for writing unflattering words about his boss. He has worked with tabloids, including the National Enquirer, to kill unfavorable stories about Trump. He has said he used a home-equity loan to finance a $130,000 payment to Daniels in the final days of the 2016 campaign and did so without Trump’s knowledge.

The president has consistently denied a relationship with Daniels, who claims the two had sex not long after first lady Melania Trump gave birth to the couple’s son Barron. He has also pushed back against other claims from women.

A recent Trump fundraising email praised Mrs. Trump, with the president calling her “my rock and foundation.”

SHOCK PICS: Stormy Daniels Appears To Have A HERPES-TYPE SORE On Her Privates . . . Did She Give TRUMP . . . THE BIG H!!!

stormy

Just when you thought the Stormy Daniels drama with the White House couldn’t get any CRAZIER – a new image is circulating of Stormy – and she has an unusual BUMP in her private area.

Some people online are wondering whether the bump could be HERPES, a disease that is RAMPANT in the adult film industry. Others are asking if it is HERPES, could she have passed it onto the PRESIDENT?

Stormy told 60 minutes that she and the president had unprotected s*x.

Stormy Daniels has filed a lawsuit against the POTUS, but yesterday her legal case hit a roadblock. A federal judge denied a motion from Stormy seeking to depose President Donald Trump as well as his lawyer Michael Cohen who admitted to paying her hush money. Her attorney Michael Avenatti requested permission to question the president for two hours.

Stormy also filed another lawsuit this week, this time directed at Michael Cohen for defamation. The suit alleges that he lied about her and even though he was aware of the affair and that he defamed her back in February when e said, “Just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean that it can’t cause you harm or damage.”

Here is the uncensored close up
