Michael Avenatti: We Broke Up With Stormy And Won't Represent Her Anymore

Michael "Creepy Porn Lawyer" Avenatti on Tuesday announced that his law firm, Eagan Avenatti, LLC, would no longer represent Stormy Daniels. 

The pair came together when Daniels, a porn star, sued President Donald Trump. She wanted to invalidate a $130,000 nondisclosure agreement she signed with then-candidate Trump before the 2016 election to stay quiet about an alleged affair they had more than a decade ago.

“On February 19, we informed Stormy Daniels in writing that we were terminating our legal representation of her for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to the attorney-client privilege,” Avenatti said in a statement. “This was not a decision we made lightly and it came only after lengthy discussion, thought and deliberation, as well as consultation with other professionals. We wish Stormy all the best.”

According to Daniels, she's retained Clark Brewster to represent her.

The two seem to have been at odds with one another for some time now. Back in November, Daniels told The Daily Beast Avenatti had not been respecting her wishes.

“I haven’t decided yet what to do about legal representation moving forward. Michael has been a great advocate in many ways. I’m tremendously grateful to him for aggressively representing me in my fight to regain my voice," Daniels said. "But in other ways Michael has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client. He has spoken on my behalf without my approval. He filed a defamation case against Donald Trump against my wishes. He repeatedly refused to tell me how my legal defense fund was being spent. Now he has launched a new crowdfunding campaign using my face and name without my permission and attributing words to me that I never wrote or said."
