Antonio D'Amico, the longtime partner of the late Italian designer Gianni Versace, is not happy with FX's new series about Versace's life and death
He blasted the FX series, saying, “Significant parts of the [series] on Gianni Versace’s murder do not reflect the reality of the events that took place.” D’Amico, 59, also said, “I feel — together with those who know me well — that my character… is a misrepresentation of myself and what our relationship with was like. D’Amico is played by Ricky Martin in the series. Versace is played by Edgar Ramírez.
More specifically, D’Amico mentions a scene in which his Versace’s killer, Andrew Cunanan, meets him onstage in San Francisco. D’Amico told People, the scene, which is told from Cunanan’s perspective, “is pure fantasy as I was with Gianni — together with a number of people, like the ladies from the San Francisco Opera council — for the entire time he was at the theatre and then we went back to our hotel together.
