Michael Avenatti's estranged wife is becoming increasingly frustrated with his Stormy Daniels case because it is holding up their divorce, it has been revealed.
On Friday, Avenatti's resortwear entrepreneur wife Lisa Storie told of her frustrations.
'I need to be divorced and if [Michael Avenatti] continues to paint the narrative, he can ignore our case! Everyone reports we are divorced. That does not help my goal to get a divorce.
'Can you imagine divorcing him?' she told Fox News.
The narrative she was referring to was her ex's ongoing pursuit of President Trump and Michael Cohen on behalf of Daniels who says she slept with Trump in 2006 and who took $130,000 from his attorney to keep quiet about it before the election.

Avenatti has led a media campaign on her behalf and is dogged about keeping his case in the headlines.
It has cast a long shadow over his ongoing divorce from Storie, 47, who lives Newport Beach, California. Avenatti filed for divorce himself in December in Orange County.
Their next court date is in July. So far, she has changed lawyers once.
On Friday, he told DailyMail.com his wife's claims were 'ridiculous', saying: 'Nothing has been delayed.'
His wife previously filed in Los Angeles but the case was dismissed in November.
Both happened after she kicked him out of their home and changed the locks.
Her reasons are unknown but on Friday she demanded: 'Tell me where our money and his time has been spent.'
Storie said she would be 'happy' for her husband to move on with a 'nice woman' like Christie Brinkley, who he was tangibly linked to, but threw shade on his famous, Trump-bashing client.
