Michael Avenatti and his former girlfriend, Mareli Miniutti, were not exactly keeping their relationship a secret and unearthed photos even show the couple posed for pictures together at swanky events.
Stormy Daniels' attorney and the Estonian actress, who recently claimed Avenatti dragged her across his apartment, were seen together back in September attending a private event at the Sony Hall in NYC.
According to the declaration Miniutti filed with her restraining order, she began dating Avenatti in October 2017, and moved in with him in January 2018.
She says they separated the night of November 13 after the alleged domestic violence incident. Some people online have called into question the relationship between Avenatti and Miniutti, but the photo of them two months before his arrest appears to show they were a legitimate couple.
The Blast broke the story, Miniutti claims they got into an argument over money on November 13 which ended when Avenatti dragging her around the apartment floor while calling her an “ungrateful f*cking bitch."
Avenatti has vehemently denied he assaulted the actress, who recently scored a cameo in "Ocean's 8," and hinted that video surveillance footage will totally clear his name.
