Michael Avenatti — also known as “Creepy Porn Lawyer” — abruptly canceled a counter-rally he had planned to hold during President Trump’s October 22 rally in Houston, Texas. Trump’s rally, which is in support of Senator Ted Cruz’s re-election bid, is expected to draw up to 100,000 people.
An NBC News reporter tweeted that Avenatti canceled his anti-Trump protest due to a sudden scheduling conflict. We’re sure it had nothing to do with lackluster public response.
The media-thirsty Avenatti also disingenuously claimed that he didn’t want to steal the spotlight from Beto O’Rourke, who is Ted Cruz’s Democrat opponent.
“It’s Beto’s show because it’s his race,” Avenatti reportedly said.
NEW – What became of this resistance rally? @MichaelAvenatti tells me the Oct. 22 date announced by the Trump campaign, with only a week's notice, conflicted with his schedule and prevented him from holding the counter-rally. He adds, "It's Beto's show because it's his race." https://t.co/cQJynxv99T

Michael Avenatti is currently under fire amid revelations that he once owed millions of dollars in back taxes while living lavishly in debt.

Avenatti previously owed millions of dollars in back taxes while living lavishly in debt, the Daily Mail reported.
While he was living the high life with two private jets and several posh mansions, he personally owed at least $1.2 million in federal taxes while his law firm, Eagan Avenatti, owed $2.4 million in taxes.
Keep in mind that Avenatti wants to run for president of the United States. Meanwhile, he can’t even handle his own personal debts.
In his divorce proceedings, Avenatti’s ex-wife, Lisa Storie-Avenatti, said “the couple spent $20,000 a month on groceries, another $20,000 on clothes, $12,000 on nannies, and $27,000 for vacations, gifts, and entertainment.”
Lisa said at one point, Michael employed a full-time pilot who was paid $100,000 a year to fly his two private jets, which were worth $9 million.
“I had unfettered use of credit cards that were in my name,” said Lisa Storie-Avenatti. “My American Express bill was historically on average of $60,000 to $70,000 per month, and was paid in full each month.”
Avenatti is currently being sued by several former business partners, who say he owes them money.
Making matters worse, a federal court just dismissed porn star Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against Trump and ordered her to pay Trump’s legal fees — in a humiliating defeat for her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
Trump attorney Charles Harder slam-dunked Avenatti, who opportunistically rose to fame by attacking Trump, as BizPac Review has reported.
“No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Harder said.
