Versace's Murder Highlighted in Season Two of American Crime Story

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story airs in the USA on 19 January with a United Kingdom air date expected to follow soon after on BBC Two.

The Versace family issued a statement about the program on Monday, disowning the show and labelling it a "work of fiction" they did not authorize, but Penelope says she did her due diligence before committing to the project by seeking out Donatella's personal blessing.

Versace was gunned down in 1997 at the entrance gate of his Miami beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. In the summer of 1997, he attracted a high-profile manhunt as one of the FBI's 10 most-wanted fugitives before, eight days after Versace's death, he killed himself.

The series stars Venezuelan heartthrob Edgar Ramirez as Versace, as well as Penelope Cruz and singer Ricky Martin. Maureen Orth is an impeccable reporter and we stand by her reporting.

How does Fox 21 Television, FX Productions, and Ryan Murphy feel about the family's statement?

In a statement, his family said it has neither authorized nor been involved in the series.

The family challenges in particular Orth's claim that Versace was HIV-positive.

Today, the brand delved deeper into what that first statement meant, by releasing a catty follow-up statement that just might be the written equivalent to Mariah Carey's "I don't know her" comment. "Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions", the family claims.

"Since Versace did not authorise the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction". "Gianni Versace was a courageous and honest man, who engaged in humanitarian work for the benefit of others. It's based on a very acclaimed nonfiction book called Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth that has been vetted for nearly two decades". "Of all the possible portrayals of his life and legacy, it is sad and reprehensible that the producers have chosen to present the distorted and bogus version created by Maureen Orth". We had known that Penelope Cruz had reached out to Donatella Versace once she received the part.

The statement concludes by praising the fashion designer while further insisting that American Crime Story does not have the family's blessing.
