Michael Avenatti, who drew a lot of attention as the former attorney for porn-start Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Trump, has been charged for trying to extort $20 million dollars from Nike.

According to CNBC, Avenatti tried to set up a scheme that would steal the company’s communication and use anything damaging as a way to leverage payment from the company.

Avenatti apparently threatened to use his ability to get the media’s attention to sink Nike’s reputation.

Avenatti has hit back saying his work has uncovered a major ‘pay for play’ scandal.


Recently, Adidas was targeted by federal investigators for funneling money to college athletes through coaches so they could then sign them to multi-million dollar shoe deals once they turn pro. That is prohibited by the NCAA.

Along with Stormy Daniels, Avenatti has also represented victims in the R. Kelly case.
