Michael Avenatti is threatening to take legal action against TMZ, following his arrest on domestic violence charges.
Avenatti, in a Tweet Friday, said the TMZ reporter responsible for breaking the story on his arrest “better get their checkbook ready,” claiming the story was malicious and false.
He went on to say the allegations were “designed to harm him” and his estranged wife Lisa, and he fully plans to “expose” the outlet for defending “garbage like that.”
Avenatti also blames Gateway Pundit blogger Jacob Whol, suggesting he was somehow behind his arrest, and threatened to go after him.
In response, Wohl said Avenatti’s criminal threats against him are being reported to law enforcement.
Avenatti was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday on suspicion of domestic violence, after an allegedly physical altercation with his estranged wife.
