Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti can’t seem to keep his name out of the news.  The latest on the attorney is he is accused of embezzling $2.5 million from Miami Heat player Hassan Whiteside to allegedly pay for a private jet.

The money was part of a $3 million payment that supposed to be paid to Whiteside’s ex-girlfriend Alexis Gardner.  

Via Deadspin:

On Jan. 7, 2017, Gardner and Whiteside agreed to a settlement of $3 million after they broke up to reflect, in their words, “[Gardner’s] investment of time and support over a number of years as Hassan pursued a career in the NBA.” The plan was for Whiteside to pay $2.75 million later that month, and for the final $250,000 to come in 2020. Avenatti was supposed to only take a little over $1 million of the first payment with fees and costs factored in. In reality, he ended up taking all of Whiteside’s payment and sending $2.5 million of it to an associate to transfer it to Honda Aircraft Company, LLC for a private jet, according to the indictment.

That’s terrible if true, but more importantly, what does Gardner have on Whiteside to require a $3 million payday?  We’d love for that to come out as a part of this investigation.  She must have some sort of dirt on Hassan.
