The Gucci family has threatened to sue the producers of an American Movie, ‘House of Gucci’ over the ‘insulting portrayal of the family’ in the movie.
It was reported that the heirs of Aldo Gucci alleged that the producers of the newly released film did not seek their consent before portraying members of the family as “thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them.”
“This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today,” reads a statement published by Italian wire service ANSA on Monday 29th November, 2021.
The statement revealed that family was not happy at the portrayal of Patrizia Reggiani as a victim, despite the fact that the Italian socialite was convicted of instigating the murder of her husband, Maurizio Gucci.
‘House of Gucci’ is a murder drama based on the story of Italian socialite Patrizia Reggiani who spent 16 years in prison for plotting the murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci, who was the head of the iconic fashion company.
The movie stars American singer Lady Gaga as Reggiani, Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, and Salma Hayek.
‘House of Gucci’ was directed by Riley Scot.
