We love to share bad news about celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti with you, especially knowing that he’s already met with some influential Democrats to see what kind of money he could scrape together for a 2020 Democratic run.
And speaking of scraping together money, Avenatti’s not only on the hook for $4.85 million in back pay; a judge has also ordered his firm, Eagan Avenatti, evicted from its Newport Beach offices for nonpayment of rent.
Michael Finnegan reports for the Los Angeles Times:
Breaking: Eagan Avenatti to be evicted from its Newport Beach offices for nonpayment of 4 months rent. Landlord wins judgment at trial in Orange County.

But but … he has millions in settlements and verdicts!

It went to court? Avenatti's law firm took the position that they had a right to occupy the space for free?

This went to trial? And his firm lost? That’s not winning.
That pos used to live right across the water from us. The people of Newport Beach fully rejoiced when he was thrown out of that pad I can assure you.

Is that where he shot his selfie-cam “horseface” video, in the big empty room with no furniture? That would explain a lot.
Awwww poor guy. Well, bad things happen to bad people.

I understand there's a nail salon in Albuquerque with a small office in the back for rent.

Three things that are real:
Michael Avenatti's financial problems
— Rick Wilson's Black Grandson (@AdolphusSteel) October 22, 2018
That takes his total debt to 30 million, IRS, lawsuits, state taxes, payroll taxes, business debt, and everyone of his active legal cases he is counsel for has been monetary garnished by a judge.

But he’s a winner! Just ask him!
