Pissed off is still a bit of an understatement. The Gucci family has even threatened legal action against the film “House of Gucci” by British director Ridley Scott. Particularly disturbing for the Gucci clan is the fact that the convicted murderer Patrizia Reggiani (72), ex-wife of Gucci heir Maurizio Gucci († 46), played by Lady Gaga (35) – is portrayed as “a victim” will. In addition, according to the allegation, the late Aldo Gucci, played by Al Pacino (81), and the other members of the Gucci family are portrayed as “rioters, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them”.
Patrizia Reggiani, known in Italy as the “Black Widow”, is said to have had Maurizio Gucci murdered by a hit man in 1995 because he had left her for a younger woman after twelve years of marriage. In October 2016, she was released from prison after 18 years in prison. An exciting story that has now been packed into “House of Gucci” in three hours. But not in the sense of the Gucci family. The film is “far from the truth”. In addition, neither the actors nor the filmmakers bothered to speak to the family before filming. “It hurts us tremendously from a purely human point of view, and it’s an insult to the legacy on which the Gucci brand is built.” And the “Black Widow”? She is also angry – because Lady Gaga never contacted her.
