Michael Avenatti’s world just got significantly more complicated.
Actress Mareli Miniutti, who has been reportedly dating Avenatti, 47, for months, has been identified as the woman who filed the complaint against him.
According to her declaration, Avenatti allegedly “forcefully” hit her in the face with pillows and engaged in abusive language, among other allegations.
Miniutti is a 24-year-old actress, originally from Estonia, who recently made a brief appearance in “Ocean’s 8.”
Pictures Tell the Story
According to court documents, the couple got into an argument over money. She says Avenatti called her an “ungrateful f—— b—-.”
“He then said words to the effect of, ‘Do not disrespect me. You don’t get to sleep in my house tonight,” she wrote.
He allegedly grabbed her by the wrist, dragged her out of the apartment and tossed her into the hallway.
There, Miniutti tried ringing a neighbor’s bell, but was then taken back into the apartment, forcefully, by Avenatti, she wrote.
She then put her clothes on and fled the building, all the while Avenatti was telling her not to get authorities involved.
Miniutti first reported the incident to building security, then to police when she noticed the scratches on her body.
She included photos of apparent bruises left on her body along with a request for a restraining order, writing that she was afraid that Avenatti might “harass” or “cause harm” to her.
On Monday, a judge granted Miniutti’s request for a temporary restraining order until a Dec. 10 hearing.
It will be very interesting to see how the liberal horde reacts to this report.
Specifically, the ladies on The View that have said they will disavow Avenatti if there is proof he actually did assault a woman.
For his part, Avenatti is aggressively defending himself, and tweeted that he has “NEVER abused a woman or committed domestic violence against anyone.” He claims there is video evidence that will back up his side of the story.
He also claims the alleged victim made posts on her private Instagram account which contradict her claims of domestic violence.
However, Miniutti’s attorney says she “stands by the accuracy of her statements to the LAPD.”
Right now, things do not look good for Avenatti, but we will withhold judgment until all of the evidence has been presented.
It is just a shame liberals did not grant Kavanaugh the same courtesy.
