A New York State Appellate Court ruling may cost Victoria Gotti her Long Island mansion – the five-bedroom, 5½-bath white brick residence familiar to viewers of her 2004 Growing Up Gotti reality show
A lower court decision in 2007 called a foreclosure on the property by JPMorgan Chase premature, and a Brooklyn appeals court reversed that ruling last week – as well as approved a plan to appoint a referee to coordinate the sale of the nearly $4.2 million residence.
Gotti, 46, owes $650,000 to her lender, reports the New York Post. As the so-called Mafia princess tells the paper, “This should finally put to rest all the government lies and rumors that I have $200 million buried in my backyard.”
