HarperCollins sues a Gotti

June 07, 2008|From Bloomberg News

Victoria Gotti, daughter of the late convicted mob boss John Gotti, has been sued by HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide for failing to complete a memoir about her life or return a $70,000 advance.

Gotti, 45, a former columnist for the New York Post and sister of accused gangster John A. "Junior" Gotti, starred in the reality television show "Growing Up Gotti," about her life with her three sons, which was broadcast on the A&E Television Network.

HarperCollins said in its complaint filed this week in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan that Gotti promised to deliver a completed memoir to the publishers by Nov. 1, 2005. She did not produce the book, and two outlines she submitted were "unacceptable," according to the complaint.

Gotti could not be reached for comment.
