Mob Wives star Renne Graziano is being sued for $77m by her plastic surgeon after he claims she lied about botching her full body makeover.

Dr. Andrew Klapper claims his business has been drastically hit after Graziano went on TV to talk about how she almost died on the operating table. He also says she has failed to pay the $30,000 fee he charges for the multiple cosmetic surgeries.

The 43-year-old told The View that she lost six pints of blood due while undergoing a butt lift and tummy tuck. The operation was filmed as part of the reality show Mob Wives.

Graziano, daughter of Bonanno family consigliere Anthony Graziano, went to Klapper’s clinic in 2011. Soon after she gave several interviews where she described how the surgery almost killed her.

But Dr Klapper,43, claims in legal papers that Graziano had falsely claimed he almost killed her during a botched operation. His lawyer Barry Levin said Graziano has waged a vendetta against his client including the filing of a false report with the state board that licenses doctors last March.

He also said Graziano falsely claimed Klapper never informed her of the risks involved in the surgery. The lawsuit, filed by Levin in Brooklyn Supreme Court, points out that no action was ever taken against Klapper. It also says Graziano never paid the surgeon, even though she claimed in interviews that the procedure cost her $30,000.

The suit also seeks damages from the production company of Graziano’s sister Jennifer, who created Mob Wives, and from VH1 and The Weinstein Co., which produces the show.

Graziano’s father Anthony was sentenced to 19 months in jail over an extortion charge.

The reality star was in court to see her 71-year-old father jailed. He will serve 11 months having already been locked up for eight months.
