Lawyer denies report that Travolta met Gotti widow
NEW YORK (AP) - A lawyer for John Gotti’s son is denying a report that actor John Travolta met with the mob boss’ widow to seek her blessing for his upcoming movie role as the mafia kingkin.
The New York Post reported that Travolta went to the family’s New York City home on Sept. 22 to meet with widow Victoria Gotti and son John “Junior” Gotti.
But Junior Gotti’s lawyer, Charles Carnesi, tells The Associated Press that Victoria wasn’t home when Travolta visited.
A Post spokeswoman said Friday the newspaper stands by its story. A Travolta spokesman says the actor has no comment.
The Post story was first challenged by former Post reporter Jerry Capeci in his newsletter ganglandnews.com.
“Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father” is set to start shooting in January.
