Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is being sued by the plastic surgeon she claims nearly killed her last year when she had a full body makeover.
Those of you who watch Mob Wives heard about it all last season. Renee claimed to have nearly died while on the operating table of Dr. Andrew Klapper, saying she lost six pints of blood. She has yet to proceed with any actions against the doctor but she has talked about the botched plastic surgery, which included a butt lift and a tummy tuck, on talk shows, in interviews and on Mob Wives.
A quote taken from one of her interviews:
“I lost 6.3 pints of blood and the priest told my son to say goodbye to his mother. I didn’t want to take blood but my body was an ice cube so I had three pints transfused, my family made the decision for me because I was incoherent and they were told I had 10 minutes to live.”
Dr. Klapper disputes these claims and believes Graziano, 43, has destroyed his reputation and has cost him thousands of dollars in business. He also claims Renee Graziano never paid her bill, which came to a total of more than $30,000. He is suing her for a whopping $77 million for defamation and is seeking damages from Jennifer Graziano, Renee’s sister and creator of the Mob Wives series, as well as VH1.
