Ricky Martin de­fends Ver­sace mur­der drama

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Ricky Martin says he re­as­sured Gianni Ver­sace’s long­time part­ner that their re­la­tion­ship is treated re­spect­fully in a TV drama about Ver­sace’s 1997 mur­der. The pop star plays An­to­nio D’Amico in FX’s “The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace: Amer­i­can Crime Story,” de­but­ing in Jan­uary. Martin spoke by phone to D’Amico af­ter he had pub­licly crit­i­cized the un­fin­ished se­ries for what he called in­ac­cu­ra­cies. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Ryan Murphy said D’Amico may have been judg­ing the drama based on a pa­parazzi photo taken dur­ing film­ing out­side Ver­sace’s Mi­ami Beach man­sion, where the famed de­signer was killed. Martin said Wed­nes­day he told D’Amico that he will make peo­ple fall in love with his re­la­tion­ship with Ver­sace. Edgar Ramirez plays Ver­sace, with Dar­ren Criss as se­rial killer An­drew Cu­nanan, who shot him­self af­ter Ver­sace’s mur­der.
