Listen to the audio of Michael Avenatti attempting to shakedown Nike below.
“Look, Scott, listen. I’m not f–king around with this,” Avenatti’s says on the March 2019 call to Nike attorney, Scott Wilson. “I’m not continuing to play games. This isn’t complicated.”
“You guys know enough now to know you got a serious problem. It’s worth more in exposure to me to just blow the lid on this. A few million dollars doesn’t move the needle for me, I’m just being really frank with you.”
Ouch. Guess he didn't realize Wilson was recording the call for the FBI?
