Stormy Daniels Calls Michael Avenatti a 'Monster'

("Inside Edition")

By    |   Wednesday, 19 February 2020 04:49 PM EST

Celebrating the conviction of her former lawyer Michael Avenatti, porn star Stormy Daniels said he is a poor lawyer, deceitful, and a "monster."

"I definitely had figured out what a monster he was," Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford, told "Inside Edition."

Avenatti was convicted in New York last Friday on charges of attempting to extort Nike.

"My initial reaction was high five, 'yes!'" Daniels told the program. "Then honestly, a couple days later, I just felt really sad because deep down some part of me didn't want to believe all those terrible things about him."

Avenatti is also being sued for allegedly stealing $300,000 from Daniels' book deal, leading Daniels to conclude "he's actually not a good lawyer," although she stopped short of calling him a con man.

"I mean, he conned me – I don't know if he's a con man," she told "Inside Edition."

"It's not even that much money in the grand scheme of things," she added. "But it's more of the betrayal than the money. Somebody that I trusted looked me in the face every single day for a year and lied to me."
