I knew some of the players. In the 1990s, I reported this founder, a waiter who went into the leather-based enterprise, had two sons. These sons had sons. With such cash at stake, they hated and despised each other. When Maurizio was shot lifeless in Milan, no person knew whodunnit. No one suffered from it both.
Heiress Patrizia Gucci, who’d sued for divorce, advised me: “I didn’t count on he’d be killed, however I’m not stunned — he had many enemies.” She was subsequently convicted of orchestrating his assassination.
Jenny Gucci, suing Maurizio’s cousin Paolo for divorce, added: “They’ve a glamorous title however are a hideous group. Do I believe it was an accident? No. Mistake? No. The Mafia? No. Somebody who knew him? Sure.”
Extra, as they unfolded it to me then: “Paolo, son of Aldo, who moved the Gucci title into America, despatched his late father to jail for earnings tax.”
Additionally, I reported, Paolo impregnated his stablehand, left Jenny and their youngster penniless, let his horses starve, and their Madison Avenue store go belly-up. Months again, cousin Maurizio was shot to loss of life on a avenue in Italy and estranged spouse Patrizia was suing for divorce. Paolo’s widow Jenny: “Legal professionals say he died from liver grievance. I solely know no person has but formally knowledgeable me, the spouse he’s nonetheless married to, that he’s lifeless. There’s a primary spouse and two grown youngsters — and he left no will.”
Now filming this battle for cash with Gaga and Adam Driver is Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek and Reeve Carney.
