Gucci heiress who had her husband murdered criticises Lady Gaga for not meeting her as film is shot in Italy – The Telegraph

The film, House of Gucci, is being shot in Milan and also stars Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons
An Italian heiress who had her husband, a scion of the Gucci family, murdered by a hitman and is being played by Lady Gaga in a forthcoming Hollywood film has criticised the actress for not meeting her.
Patrizia Reggiani served 17 years of a 26-year prison sentence for ordering the 1995 killing of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, who had run off with another woman. 
Known in Italy as the ‘Black Widow’, she is being portrayed by Gaga in a film about the murder called House of Gucci.
Having shot scenes in Rome, the film has now moved to the Italian Alps and Milan, where Gaga was seen playfully feeding a slice of pizza to her co-star Adam Driver.
Best known for portraying the villain Kylo Ren in the Star Wars films, he will portray Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of Gucci’s founder, who was gunned down on the steps of his office in Milan.
“I'm annoyed by the fact that Lady Gaga is portraying me in the new Ridley Scott film without even having the courtesy or the good sense to come and meet me,” Ms Reggiani, 72, said.
“It's nothing to do with money because I won't be taking a single cent from the film. It’s  about common sense and respect,” she told Ansa, Italy’s national news agency.
“I believe that any good actor should first get to know the person that they are meant to be playing. I think it is not right that I wasn't contacted. And I say this with all the sympathy and appreciation that I have for her.”
The film is due to be released in November, with the cast including Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino, Jack Huston and Jared Leto.
Lady Gaga was in Italy when her two French bulldogs were stolen at gunpoint in Los Angeles last month.
They were found after the singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, offered a $500,000 (£360,000) reward.
Ms Reggiani revealed in January that she was so desperate to murder her former husband that she approached many people, even the local grocer, to ask if they would carry out the hit.
She was furious that after 13 years of marriage he had abandoned her for another woman, leaving her to bring up their two young daughters.
She was also angry over his management of the $170 million fortune he had accrued after selling the family business in 1993 to an investment group.
“I was furious with Maurizio. I went around asking everyone, even the local grocer, ‘is there someone who has the courage to murder my husband?’” she said in a documentary.
Eventually she found someone willing to carry out the murder – a debt-ridden pizzeria owner. On the day her ex-husband was gunned down, she wrote in her diary the word – paradeisos, Greek for paradise.
