Gianni Versace's Partner Comments on Ricky Martin's Bloody Set Photos: It's 'Ridiculous'

Antonio D’Amico, Gianni Versace‘s partner for 15 years before he was shot outside of his home in Miami Beach, Florida in 1997, is speaking out about American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

“The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous. Maybe it’s the director’s poetic license, but that is not how I reacted,” Antonio told The Observer. Ricky is playing Antonio in the new show, and Gianni is being played by Edgar Ramirez.

“I felt as if my blood had turned to ice,” Antonio said of what really happened that tragic day. “The house had stained glass windows so we couldn’t see what had happened from inside, so we had to open the gate. I saw Gianni lying on the steps, with blood around him. At that point, everything went dark. I was pulled away, I didn’t see any more.”

Antonio said he would speak to Ricky about playing him.

“It’s getting to know the small things about a relationship,” he added. “For example, Gianni was so ordered and focused at work but in his private life everything was disorganized. He’d leave the bathroom in a mess. At a certain point I said ‘enough’! And when it came to cooking, he didn’t even know how to [boil] an egg.”
