Avenatti Hit With Devastating Claim and Records Undermine His Denials
Left-wing attorney and potential 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti is again facing accusations of unpaid debts, this time from the owner of the Washington state-based company Dillanos Coffee.
Avenatti owes Dillanos $110,000 and has refused to pay up, according to Dillanos founder and CEO David Morris.
Avenatti has repeatedly denied owing Dillanos anything, but bank records and other related documents Dillanos’ attorney provided to The Daily Caller News Foundation appear to undermine what Avenatti previously said about the dispute.
Morris first said on May 9 that Avenatti owed him $160,000 for unpaid debts related to Avenatti’s ownership and management of Tully’s Coffee, a financially insecure Seattle coffee chain that shuttered all of its locations earlier this year.
Several high-profile individuals, including actor Patrick Dempsey, have accused Avenatti of owning them substantial amounts of money. Recently, a California judge ordered him to pay $4.85 million to his former law partner.
