Meanwhile, it's not clear who accused him of domestic violence.
More recently, Avenatti and Daniels unsuccessfully attempted to sue the president for defamation.
"If it proves to be true, I'll disavow him".
Avenatti was arrested Wednesday "on suspicion of domestic violence", the LAPD confirmed, accusations he later denied vehemently. "We're told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, 'I can't believe you did this to me".
When asked about whether she would support Avenatti's potential candidacy, Daniels said, "I'm sure Michael's not going to like hearing this, but until I know all of the candidates and their platforms, I will not endorse anyone, but I'm open-minded".
"Surefire Intelligence strikes again, ' read the tweet, which was replying to a headline that read: 'Michael Avenatti has been arrested for felony domestic violence and is now in LAPD custody".
Avenatti is now the attorney for Stormy Daniels also known as Stephanie Clifford, a pornographic actress who has accused President Donald Trump of paying her off to remain silent about having extramarital sexual relations with her-allegations the president denies.
Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.
He is due in court on December 5.
"I have never struck a woman, I never will strike a woman", Avenatti told reporters Wednesday after being booked and posting $50,000 bail.
He said that he never in his lifetime had struck a woman and he will never be doing this act. But as other news outlets scrambled to confirm the story - politically explosive given Avenatti's posture as the savior of women harmed by Donald Trump and Donald Trump-adjacent men - TMZ was forced to correct itself: A source had been mistaken, they said, and the woman Avenatti allegedly harmed was someone else entirely.
Avenatti-Carlin is the mother of his two daughters.
"Michael "She Hit Me First" Avenatti is now blaming ME for the fact that he was arrested for brutally beating a woman - This guy is a SICKO!" wrote Wohl. I am looking forward to a full investigation at which point I am confident I will be fully exonerated. Avenatti represents Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in an ongoing lawsuit against President Trump and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, regarding a non-disclosure agreement about the alleged affair. For months, he has publicly flirted with a potential bid for the Democratic presidential nomination to challenge Trump in 2020.
The Avenattis were married in 2011, but Mr. Avenatti filed for divorce in 2017.
