The Versace Family Continues to Distance Itself From American Crime Story

Apparently, the family of Gianni Versace had no involvement in how The Assassination of Gianni Versace is going to unfold on FX, and so the series should be regarded as fiction by viewers. The Versace family let the audience know that the upcoming series was not made or even conceived with their input and that it may even be in direct opposition to the real-life facts of the case. "So that's how that all started".

On January 8, the fashion house released the following statement, just hours before the red carpet premiere of The Assassination of Gianni Versace in Los Angeles "The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace". The Versace family is where FX dishes up a The People v. O.J. Simpson-worthy dose of star power, with Penélope Cruz as Gianni's devastated sister, Donatella Versace, and Ricky Martin playing Antonio D'Amico, a model, designer, and Gianni's longtime partner.

Is there a trailer for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story? The phrase "medical condition" is a reference to Orth's claim in Vulgar Favors that Gianni Versace was HIV positive at the time of his death. In Episode 2 of the podcast, Orth details the genesis of her book and the challenges of getting inside the disturbed mind of a killer. The Versace family has long denied a number of the points covered in Orth's book, including both the notion that Cunanan and Versace were previously acquainted and that Versace, before he died, was sick with HIV/AIDS.

It was produced by 21st Century Fox and drew inspiration from Maureen Orth's 1999 book "Vulgar Favors". "Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions".

On Tuesday, Murphy told EW, "The Versace family has said it's a work of fiction - it is not a work of fiction".

Outrage over racist remarks by Trump
Senator Dick Durbin told reporters in a video that he personally heard that Trump used "those words advisedly". Trump and Congress are trying to resolve it after Trump ended the program.

Who is in the cast of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story? The trailer hints at the disturbed and complex personality of murderer Cunanan. "The most important thing for me was to find her voice, because she speaks in a very special, particular way".

'She is a friend, she said she will treat me with respect - yes but I don't know what will be from a book that says incredible falsehoods, ' she said, speaking about the book which the series was partially based on.

This isn't the first time Orth's book has bumped up against criticism and scrutiny.

Yes, not everything can be as exactly as it happened and the family states that they see where the production and Murphy used their artistic license in their depiction of events. His reaction and others like it "surprised" her.

'I felt as if my blood had turned to ice, ' he said. "I am reflecting the life Andrew lived".
