Attorney Michael Avenatti is now accused of embezzling $1.5 million from NBA star Hassan Whiteside.
Sunday reports detailed records, which revealed the Miami Heat center wired Avenatti $2.7 million.
Most of the funds were intended for his ex-girlfriend Alexis Gardner.
As part of the original deal, Avenatti was entitled to a little over one million dollars in fees of the total amount.
Instead, prosecutors said he kept the entire amount and put it toward a private jet.
This comes as Avenatti faces separate charges of allegedly trying to extort $20 million from sportswear giant Nike.
