Marriage and Divorce
Although there is no record of a current relationship for Lisa-Story Avenatti, she is the ex-wife of US-based lawyer Michael Avenatti – the lawyer who represented adult porn star Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump. The duo reportedly met in first class on an airline when they were sitting close together. There is also no record of the time they met, but they reportedly met for a time before exchanging vows in a secret wedding in 2011.
Their union lasted for six whole years and is blessed with the birth of their son, who came in 2014. Before 2017, they began to put a heavy strain on their relationship, largely due to Michael’s violent nature and a drinking problem. According to Lisa, who filed for divorce in 2017, her husband would come home to verbally and emotionally abuse her after drinking. She also revealed that Michael has a hot temper and is too eager to do things his way, he even threatened her with physical harm in the past.
Although the case of Lisa-Storie Avenatti, which she filed in December 2017, was dismissed for the sole reason that Michael was busy with many cases. The story was not the same for her ex-spouse, who filed for divorce in 2018 on the grounds that she threw him out of her conjugal home and changed the locks. Michael’s divorce papers were processed immediately and completed in a very short time.
Michael was supposed to pay $80,000 monthly alimony for 2018, but the famous lawyer gave his son a couple of checks for $40,000 each as child support and paid Lisa with really expensive assets, including a 2017 Ferrari 488 GT Spider worth about $270,000, five watches worth $50,000 each, his share of his law firm’s private jet, and other luxury items such as some expensive artifacts.
While her ex-husband’s net worth is estimated at $10 million, Lisa has set her fortune at $1 million, in addition to the expensive luxury, she received for her divorce settlement. In addition, she currently lives in a $17 million home in Newport Beach, California.
