Here’s more from the New York Post:
Gucci married Reggiani in 1972 when they were both 24. They quickly became one of the most powerful couples in all of Italy and were famous for their jet-setting lifestyle, which included lavish homes in New York, Milan and Acapulco, Mexico, a ski chalet in the Swiss Alps, a farm in Connecticut, as well as their 200-foot yacht.
In 1985, Gucci told Reggiani he was going on a short business trip. He never returned home. Instead, he moved in with a younger woman.
At the time of his death, Gucci was reportedly worth nearly $100 million.

The film is based on the novel “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed” by Sara Gay Forden.
Meanwhile, members of the Gucci family appear to not be in support of the film.
“They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system,” Patrizia Gucci, one of Maurizio’s second cousins, told the Associated Press. “Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
“House of Gucci” hits theaters on Nov. 24 and will stream on Paramount+.
