Last season on the VH1 hit show, Mob Wives, Renee Graziano, the lovely daughter of convicted mafia member, Anthony TG Graziano, decided she needed a whole bucket load of work done at once and ran off to see Dr. Andrew Klapper. She says that she “went in beautiful and came out ugly” (ok so that’s half right) and has bashed Klapper every chance she has had. Apparently the doc has had enough because he has filed a $77 million defamation lawsuit in Brooklyn Supreme Court
“She has been on a media campaign to destroy this man’s professional reputation and she has succeeded,” mob lawyer Barry Levin, who is representing Klapper, said Monday. “His practice has diminished considerably in the last year.”
Levin says that Renee’s vendetta against his client included the filing of a false report with the state board that licenses doctors last March. According to him she falsely claimed Klapper never informed her of the risks and says she lost six pints of blood and almost died during the procedure. She also claims that Klapper’s bad business was responsible for another woman’s death. If course his attorney denies this but, court papers in Manhattan Supreme Court show that Klapper and an anesthesiologist are defendants in a medical malpractice lawsuit that seeks damages over the death of a woman in 2007 after a tummy tuck. The lawsuit is still pending.
I understand that Klapper doesn’t want his name smeared but really, have you looked at the after pics of Renee? She looks like a drag queen with a frozen face and no belly button. Who wouldn’t be ruining his name and dragging him through the mud?
Do you think that Klapper has any valid claims here or is Renee right to complain about how he so obviously hacked up her body? Tell us in the comments below!
