The Crazy Case of Patrizia Reggiani

In the 1970s, Patricia Reggiani married Maurizio Gucci, head of the Gucci fashion house and grandson of founder Guccio Gucci. After 12 years of marriage Maurizio left Patricia for a younger woman. They were divorced in 1992 with Patrizia receiving $500,000 annually in alimony. In 1995, Patrizia hired a hit man who assassinated Maurizio. 

After 18 years in prison, Patrizia was released. She was awarded back-payment of £16 million plus an annuity of £900,000 from the Gucci estate. As her two daughters are administering the estate of their father, she is in court proceedings against them. 

Wow - Italian courts are as messed up as they are here in the States. 

Ridley Scott is making a movie about the murder. Playing Patrizia will be...Lady Gaga!
