NEW YORK – Stephanie Clifford built a successful career by screwing on camera under the stage name Stormy Daniels.

Between her legal battle with Trump and news that her former attorney Michael Avenatti bilked her out of money from her book deal, seems getting screwed is costing her instead of financing her.

New York City prosecutors formally charged Avenatti on Wednesday with using a doctored legal instrument to direct $300,000 in funds meant for Daniels into his own accounts. The money was used to fund other business interests and to spend as he saw fit, according to court documents.

Although Daniels was not named specifically in documents, her book release date and other identifying information clearly point to Daniels as the victim of fraud.

According to Avenatti, Daniels only paid $100 for legal services in exchange for a percentage of her book sales. She received “millions in legal services”, including the suit against Trump which eventually backfired, according to the embattled attorney.

The legal instrument, identified as an unauthorized letter to Daniels’ literary agent, demanded payments meant for Daniels be diverted to Avenatti.

The attorney openly denied all allegations on Twitter. He also faces charges in California that he failed to pay taxes, bilked clients out of millions, and lied during bankruptcy proceedings. His other New York case alleges he tried to “shake down” Nike to the tune of $25 million.

In a text message sent to an Associate Press employee, Avenatti “looks forward to a jury hearing all of the evidence and passing judgment on his conduct”.

Daniels’ book, “Full Disclosure”, was released in October. On several occasions she questioned if the publisher had her money, or when they planned to “cough it up”. Avenatti indicated he was “working on it” and went as far as threatening litigation – all while failing to tell Daniels he had her money.
