Gucci Wars: How I Survived Murder and Intrigue at the Heart of the World's Biggest Fashion House

Front Cover
John Blake, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 287 pages
For a decade, Jenny Gucci lived a life that most women can only dream of. Married to Paolo Gucci, one of the wealthiest men in the world, she stayed at the world's most exclusive locations and kept company with celebrities and royalty. But such privilege came at a price and the darker side of Paolo's personality began to take over. Desperate to break away from the influence of the family, Jenny instigated a divorce from Paolo--a move that left her homeless, penniless, hungry, and facing weekly court confrontations that would last for 10 years. She suffered threats and intimidation from him and feared for her safety and for that of their daughter Gemma, who he also refused to support. Even a spell in jail for contempt of court failed to move him. Then in a final act of defiance that shocked the world, he starved his racehorses in a sick attempt to plead poverty. Jenny has survived countless struggles and unbelievable trauma--yet has come through them all to become a stronger, more independent woman. This intriguing book gives an insider's view of what it was really like to be at the heart of a force so powerful and, at times, so unscrupulous.
