Shortly before the charges came to light, Avenatti tweeted that he planned to hold another news conference regarding Nike on Tuesday morning.
NY prosecutors said Mr Avenatti and an unnamed co-conspirator met with Nike's attorneys on March 19 and said they had a client, a former amateur athletic coach, who had evidence that Nike employees had paid bribes to top high school players to convince them to play for Nike-sponsored teams.
In the Los Angeles case, Avenatti is accused of negotiating a $1.6 million settlement for a client in a civil case, but then giving the client "a bogus settlement agreement with a false payment date of March 10, 2018", according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles.
In the NY case, Avenatti was charged with conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, conspiracy to commit extortion, transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort and extortion.

Ms Daniels, who recently sacked Mr Avenatti as her attorney, said she was "saddened but not shocked" by the news.
Now Avenatti stands accused of trying to extort $25 million from Nike over a conference call, according to court documents filed on Monday by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY. Geragos did not respond to a request for comment. Federal prosecutors contend he threatened to release embarrassing information about Nike unless the athletic company paid him and a client at least $22.5 million. He also allegedly fraudulently obtained $4 million in loans by submitting false tax returns to a MS bank misrepresenting his income from 2011 to 2013.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, released a statement about the matter.

Update: Just a reminder that CNN and MSNBC made Avenatti a household name by having him on the air constantly a year ago. But it wasn't only in that case that Avenatti sought to cause problems for the president.
