Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci married in 1972 and rapidly established themselves as an Italian celebrity power couple.
Gucci was the CEO of the global company after expelling the rest of his relatives from the family firm — the Gucci fashion empire — and Reggiani was his gorgeous, globe-trotting wife.
The couple's whirlwind marriage began to unravel after only 10 years, following the birth of their two daughters, Alessandra and Allegra, as well as charges of infidelity against Maurizio.
Reggiani despised her ex-husband and believed that the Gucci family had lost its high position among Milan's elite as a result of Gucci's allegedly fanatical control of the Gucci company and his final buyout arrangement with Bahrain-based Investcorp for over $150 million in 1993.
"The family enterprise is in jeopardy. It was a bad idea. It was a colossal flop. My stomach churned with hatred..." Lady Gucci, Reggiani, told The Guardian in 2016. "He shouldn't have hurt me like that."
This hatred culminated in a conspiracy to assassinate Maurizio Gucci.
Reggiani and four others, including a paid hitman, were charged with the murder of the ex-head of the luxury house in the lobby of his office building in 1995, but it wasn't until 1997 that he and four others, including a hired hitman, were accused.
Reggiani was sentenced to 29 years in jail, but following an appeal, his sentence was reduced to 26 years, and he was freed in October 2016 after 18 years for good behavior.
But where does Reggiani obtain her money after her prison sentence? What is the net worth of the socialite?
While the precise amount of Patrizia Reggiani's net worth is unknown, it's very easy to determine the value of Italy's "Black Widow."
Reggiani, who had never worked a day in her life before her 18 years in San Vittore jail, became a consultant for jewelry maker Bozart to supplement her state-mandated salary.
Despite scheming to murder her ex-husband, there was a silver lining for Lady Gucci: she was still entitled to her divorce settlement, which paid her with an estimated 1 million per year, totaling over 16 million in backpay post-jail term.
She also still owns a multimillion-dollar yacht known as "The Creole," which she acquired before to her incarceration.
Reggiani has stated that she is nullatenente - the Italian word for bankrupt, which means "a person who has nothing," according to The Guardian – despite her divorce money.
Reggiani claims to be having financial difficulties, but with not one but two films about her coming out, things may be looking up.
In March 2021, the Discovery+ documentary Lady Gucci will broadcast, with Reggiani sharing her side of the heinous murder story.
The biopic The House of Gucci, starring Lady Gaga as Lady Gucci and Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci, will be released in November 2021.
Despite the fact that Reggiani has no connection to the Ridley Scott-directed film, it's likely that she will cut a check in the end.
Patrizia Reggiani's net worth is currently estimated at $16 million.
