Mareli Miniutti filed her petition Monday at the Santa Monica branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court, online court records show.

"No, I wish him the best of luck", said the president.

Although Avenatti has denied ever striking a woman or abusing anyone, Miniutti claimed in court documents that after she and Avenatti argued over money on November 13, he called her an "ungrateful f**king bitch", hit her in the face with pillows, grabbed her by the wrist, and pulled her off of a bed.

Mareli Miniutti wrote in a sworn statement that during the argument, Avenatti shouted expletives at her and told her she was "ungrateful" before he hit her in the face with pillows. "You don't get to sleep in my house tonight".

I look forward to a full clearing of my name and disclosure of all of the facts.

She alleges Avenatti grabbed her phone, which she was using to text a friend, and dragged her into "the public hallway" while she was wearing only a t-shirt and underwear. He then allegedly blocked the door with his body to prevent her from leaving.

Avenatti issued a statement on Twitter soon after news of the court filing broke. She eventually left and claims Avenatti begged her not to involve building security.

The next day, Miniutti said, she returned to the building to retrieve her belongings from the apartment.

NBC News does not identify alleged victims of domestic violence.

President Trump's reaction to Avenatti's arrest might ring familiar.

Andrew Blankstein is an investigative reporter for NBC News. She claims he said, "Do not disrespect me". The letter was provided to the AP by a person familiar with the investigation who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Now, TMZ is reporting that Miniutti was granted a restraining order against Avenatti. "The suggestions contained in Mr. Avenatti's counsel's letter to the LAPD are vindictive, contrary to the evidence, and unworthy of further reply".

Miniutti wrote in her filing that she is afraid that Avenatti may "harass" and "cause harm" to her as a result of the events that allegedly occurred on November 13.

She was given a follow-up hearing date of December 10.

At one point during the evening, Mr. Avenatti reportedly commented that Ms. Miniutti had been acting differently since taking medication, and Ms. Miniutti told the security guard, "It's Accutane, I've been taking it for acne for the last three days".

The order instructed Avenatti to refrain from harassing, threatening, striking or stalking Miniutti. The famed lawyer must remain at least 100 yards away from Miniutti at all times and is not allowed to contact her in any way.

Avenatti, who was arrested last week on a felony domestic violence charge, called the allegations "completely false". He has not been formally charged with a crime, and the Los Angeles Police Department had not sent the case over to prosecutors for a determination on whether to file formal charges as of Tuesday morning.

Shortly after the Blast story was published, Avenatti tweeted to maintain his innocence, calling any claims of domestic violence committed by him "bogus and fabricated".

"If the allegations turn out to be true, then I will definitely be seeking new representation because I can not condone or support someone who is abusive", Ms. Clifford said last week. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. The truth about the alleged incident on Tues night/Wed am, as well as the truth about TMZ's completely false reporting about last Wednesday afternoon.

Miniutti, a Los-Angeles based actress, is originally from Estonia, records showed.

Asked about the alleged incident, Miniutti said: "A man should never raise a hand to a woman". I have never struck a woman. "She's a very calm, well-mannered, respectful individual".

Christine Avenatti-Carlin, Avenatti's first wife and mother of his two daughters, said, "Michael has always been a loving, kind father to our two daughters and husband". I never will strike a woman.
