Michael Avenatti told his aspiring ex-girlfriend, 25, about his dreams of becoming president


In Part 2 of DailyMailTV's two-part exclusive interview, Mareli Miniutti describes how lawyer Michael Avenatti was obsessed with fame and his dreams of becoming President of the United States.

Michael Avenatti laughed in the face of girlfriend Mareli Miniutti when she told him that she was looking for a waiter job.

In a patronizing tone, the 48-year-old high-profile lawyer asked his much younger partner: "Mareli, do you know who you are meeting with?"

The aspiring actress Miniutti, 25, from Estonia, looked at her friend in confusion – "You," she said.

"No, no, no, no," he replied. "You do not understand. How can the next United States First Lady work as a waitress? & # 39;

Avenatti's burgeoning ambition and outright arrogance was so great that the lawyer and democratic activist, deep down, believed that he would one day become president.

And besides, the man who had made himself the arch-enemy of President Trump through the representation of pornstar Stormy Daniels did not want to be "humiliated" by his girl with such a low-qualified position.

In a statement to DailyMailTV, Avenatti said: "These fancy claims are unfounded and completely wrong."

He added, "Is she a waitress now?"

25-year-old Mareli Miniutti spoke exclusively with DailyMailTV about her relationship with the disgraced prominent lawyer Michael Avenatti. The aspiring actress said Avenatti had taken control and laughed in her face when she said she could take a job as a waitress because it would "humiliate" herself

The couple met for the first time in October 2017 at the upscale Italian restaurant Cecconi & # 39; s in West Hollywood. Avenatti apparently had the full package - successful work, nice apartment, nice cars, access to a private jet and expensive hobbies. The lawyer wooed Miniutti with a trip to Europe that paid all the costs

Miniutti said: “We had a great time, but there were certain things that worried me - there were times when I caught a glimpse of his controlling personality. For example, he was crazy about the airport staff who left for Europe because the line was so long. Pictured: The couple on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

On the second day of her exclusive interview with DailyMailTV, Miniutti reveals how Avenatti was obsessed with making it to the White House and set out to overthrow President Trump.

Miniutti said she was shocked when Avenatti laughed in her face at the waitress job.

"After all," she says. "What's wrong with being a waitress? I was happy to do any job, it's not something to be ashamed of. But he just didn't let me do it, he wasn't happy, it was too important for his image to keep me away from the idea. & # 39;

He loved the attention and thought in his thoughts that one day he might become president – I told him he was mad.

She claims that the persistent California litigator told her that it was his childhood dream to become president and that he had therefore studied law.

And now that a whirlwind of national and international public was surrounding him and his client Stormy Daniels, Avenatti felt he was one step closer to the Oval Office.

"At first I was excited and very proud, but I noticed that he was obsessed," Miniutti recalls. “He wanted to do every interview he could. He went to CNN 20 times and kept saying the same thing.

"He took calls from journalists all day and night, and I went with him to dinner with journalists, for example, we met Anderson Cooper for dinner in New York.

"He loved the attention and thought in his thoughts that one day he might become president – I told him he was mad."

Miniutti says when you & # 39; narcissistic & # 39; Friend showed up on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards last August without telling her it was the beginning of the end.

She suggested that he had gone too far on his press tour and was enjoying the attention a little too much.

Miniutti lived with Avenatti in his $ 22,000 luxury apartment in Century City, Los Angeles, and he paid their expenses and drove them around in his brand new Range Rover. But she says that she was always late in paying the rent for an apartment to keep, and that her credit cards were at their limits (pictured together in Paris)

“We had only been together about four weeks and he said,“ Let's go to Europe for a month. "" He said he would pay my rent and help divorce my husband in New York

He said take some time off and travel with me, so I did it. We went to London, Paris, Florence. We flew in Norwegian business class and stayed in nice hotels and apartments.

The actress added: "In Florence I said I wanted to stop for Gelato and he said no as if I was a child. He always told me how to behave, what to do. & # 39;

"It didn't go down well at all," she recalls. “He said if I ever said anything like that again, we'd be done. I had obviously hit a nerve, it was really defensive and angry.

"Then he said he was doing the red carpets for political reasons."

The obsessive behavior continued and Avenatti leafed through videos of his interviews so that his girlfriend kept looking at them.

"He kept rewinding her to show me what he said, and he was also obsessed with Twitter and read every comment. We would be at dinner and he would not hang up his phone or a reporter would call and he would take it.

“It quickly became clear to me that Michael was more interested in the fame of being a prominent lawyer than in having a voice forever. And he was certainly more interested in attention than in me. & # 39;

Miniutti also remembers Avenatti, who dreamed of buying a mega-mansion in Beverly Hills, and showed her photos of the $ 10 million seven-bedroom property he liked.

“We didn't visit her in person, but he almost made appointments.

"He convinced me:" Oh my god, can you believe that you will be the star of my TV show and the next first lady? "

"He would say," can you imagine that I will have my 50th birthday in the White House? … we would be the first couple to get married in a white house. Imagine that. & # 39;

Avenatti did not keep his efforts in the White House secret.

He made his intentions very clear in the last six months of 2018, performed at dozens of democratic events across the country, and consulted with political strategists.

Miniutti, a stunning, tall, blonde beauty from Voru, Estonia - a small town of 14,000 - described her sex life as average. "It was like eating salted crackers," she said crisply. "You don't long for them, but you eat when the doctor says you should"

His chances of achieving the Democratic nomination always seemed unlikely, but he set up as a Trump-type wildcard, which seemed to appeal to some voters.

In December 2018, he made a statement that he would not run for president in 2020 after consulting his family.

But this time, a series of personal and professional problems meant that probably few would have taken his political endeavors seriously.

The actress, who played Met Gala star Cassandra in the film Ocean's 8, says Avenatti's behavior has deteriorated over the course of their relationship.

He was aggressive, outgoing, controlling and manipulative of her, she claims.

Not only did he not want his girlfriend to be waiting at tables, he also liked the idea of ​​having her by his side and calling when he flew back from work to New York.

She lived with him in his $ 22,000 luxury apartment in Century City, Los Angeles, and he paid her expenses and let her drive around in his brand new Range Rover.

But she says she was always late to pay the rent for an apartment he told her, and her credit cards were at their limits.

After the Stormy Daniels scandal broke out, Miniutti saw less and less of her boyfriend. He was distanced and they started to fight more.

"He enjoyed every minute of that fame, that attention, and that success," she says. "And I was really, really happy for him and supportive, but it felt like nothing else was going on in the relationship very soon."

Of course it wasn't always like that.

The couple met for the first time in October 2017 at the upscale Italian restaurant Cecconi & # 39; s in West Hollywood.

Miniutti remembers having dinner with a friend at the bar when a man starts talking to her.

I turned around for a split second and when I turned the man was gone. "Michael was standing there, literally pushing the guy out of the way to speak to me."

Attracted by his confident self-confidence and high-spirited demeanor, the actress got on with Avenatti and they soon started dating.

I think the problem is that Michael doesn't understand how delusional he is, and at this point he believes his own lies.

"He sparked my interest, everything was unexpected for him," she recalls.

& # 39; He was also full from the start. The day after our meeting we had lunch, the day after we had dinner and the day after we had dinner again.

"I remember he showed me pictures on the first date and said we should go on vacation together, we should go to Iceland, we should go to Italy."

Three weeks after they met, Miniutti went to a bachelor party in Las Vegas and stayed there for a film shoot.

& # 39; Michael sent his private jet to pick me up, it was completely empty just for me. I kind of liked that, you can blame me, I was a 23 year old girl. I was very flattered, especially because he always treated me specially.

"I liked his mood, he was also a racing car, I remember we drove to a car race in Monterey and he raced, I was super excited, I was like a cheerleader for him."

The lawyer wooed Miniutti with a trip to Europe that paid all the costs.

He said he would pay my rent and help me manage my divorce from my husband in New York. He said take some time off and travel with me, so I did it.

We went to London, Paris, Florence. We flew in Norwegian business class and stayed in beautiful hotels and apartments. & # 39;

Miniutti also tells of trips to Cabo in Mexico, Miami Beach and Park City, Utah.

"We had a great time, but there were certain things that worried me – there were times when I caught a glimpse of his controlling personality.

“For example, he was totally crazy about the airport staff leaving for Europe because the queue was so long, and then in Florence I said I wanted to stop for Gelato and he said no like I was a child. He always told me how to behave, what to do.

"At some point I started beating myself up, and that affected my self-esteem because he controlled everything very much."

Miniutti from Voru in Estonia – a small town with 14,000 inhabitants – described their sex life as average.

"It was like eating salted crackers," she said crisply. "You don't long for them, but you eat when the doctor says you should."

According to Miniutti, Avenatti's bizarre behavior deteriorated over the course of their relationship. He was aggressive, outgoing, controlling and manipulative towards her. Not only did he not want his girlfriend to be waiting at tables, he also liked the idea of ​​having her by his side and calling when he flew back from work to New York

She also claims that much older Avenatti often had difficulty performing in the bedroom, citing stress as the reason.

"He would say" "It's me, not you baby." "He had a stressful life, so I hid my disappointment. & # 39;

She added: “The relationship was much nicer in the beginning, I think all the glory has taken over.

"I think the problem is that Michael doesn't understand how delusional he is, and at this point he believes his own lies."

After they broke up last November after Avenatti forcibly kicked her out of his apartment in underwear, Miniutti began to recognize some of the lies she had been told.

The lawyer had told her he was divorced and had two daughters, but he did not mention that he had a baby son with the second wife Lisa Storie, with whom he was still married.

"He even told me that Lisa remarried and had twins," she said. Why are you telling me this? I wouldn't have cared about it. I met his daughters, so why lie about his son? It's crazy.

"He promised many things while we were together, but they were empty promises."
