Ethnicity and Background
Speaking about Victoria’s ethnicity, she is Caucasian and has dark hair and brown eyes, which suits her complexion. Judging from the photos available on the internet, in her youth Victoria had a fit figure. She was born in a family of mixed ancestry, Italian and Russian, to be precise. She reportedly met her late husband John in 1958 at a bar, and things moved fast as they fell in love, and having spent four years dating, Victoria married John in March 1962 in a private ceremony. Unfortunately, DiGiorgio hasn’t talked much about her early life and formative years. She’s not active on social media either, which makes it harder for her fans to communicate with her.
Husband John Gotti
John Gotti was born on 27 October 1940 in The Bronx, New York City, USA, however, he died in June 2002, at the age of 62. He was best known as an Italian-American gangster, the boss of the Gambino crime family. Early on in his criminal career, Gotti sold drugs, and reportedly feared that he and his brothers would be killed by Paul Castellano for doing so. As a result, he went on to organize the murder of Paul in late 1985, and in the hindsight of that event, he took over the family. Their business mostly consisted of hijacking, drug trafficking, prostitution and loan sharking, and they made hundreds of millions of dollars doing so.
Gotti naturally gained huge amounts of money, and was known as “The Dapper Don” for his taste in expensive clothes. After that, he was nicknamed “The Teflon Don”, as no-one seemed able to touch him, legally or any other way. However, John ended up behind bars in 1992 and there, he had a feud with one of his inmates, who punched him, leaving him bruised and bleeding. Many suspected that the event occurred because of Gotti’s use of aracial slur towards his inmate. In 1998, John was diagnosed with throat cancer and was transferred to the US Medical Center for Federal Prisoners, located in Springfield, Missouri. Unfortunately, his cancer returned two years afterwards, and he died in 2002, aged 61. The church of Brooklyn didn’t allow the family to have a Requiem Mass, but permitted them to have a memorial Mass.
Daughter Victoria Gotti
From her marriage with Gotti, Victoria had five children, Victoria – named after her – John, Frank, Peter and Angel, of whom we will mention two. Her daughter Victoria was born on 27 November 1962 in Brooklyn, which means that she is 55 years old and her zodiac sign is Scorpio, and is best known as a writer, and in that field, she worked on “Women and Mitral Valve Prolapse”, the book inspired by her own experience with illness. After that, she wrote “The Senator’s Daughter”, “I’ll Be Watching You”, “Superstar”, and “This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti”, with the latter being her memoir.
Victoria’s daughter is also a TV star, appearing in “Growing Up Gotti” alongside her three sons. The series made its debut in 2004 and had three seasons, but didn’t receive critical acclaim. Nonetheless, on its tenth anniversary, the special entitled “Growing Up Gotti: Ten Years Later” was released. One of her latest projects includes a lifetime movie “Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter”, which premiered on 9 February 2019.
Son John A. Gotti
Another widely known member of the Gotti family is John Angelo Gotti, born on 14 February 1964. Also known as “Junior”, John A. Gotti was the acting boss of the Gambino crime family from 1992 to 1999, following the arrest and jailing of his father.
Starting in 2004 and ending in 2009, John was a defendant in four racketeering trials, all ending in mistrials; ultimately, it was announced that he would no longer be prosecuted for the mentioned charges. As of today, he lives alongside his wife and six children. The Gotti family caught the attention of the media, and were subjects of a biographical movie, entitled “Gotti” in 2018, featuring actors such as Spencer Lofranco, Kelly Preston, Pruitt Taylor Vince, William DeMeo, with Gotti portrayed by John Travolta. Unfortunately, the movie didn’t live up to expectations, and received a mostly negative response from critics and the audience.
