Posted in News on Dec 11th, 2018
Hollywood is a crazy place, and sometimes the stuff that goes on in real life is even stranger than in movies. The mafia seems to have had a pretty strong foothold in Tinsel Town since it began, and whether they were enemies or friends of these stars, there are some celebs that are known for their mafia connections.
10. Sammy Davis Jr.
Sammy Davis Jr. was no stranger to the darker side of Hollywood, but things got scary for him as the black singer announced plans to marry white actress Kim Novak. The story goes that Novak had been linked to someone with serious mob ties, and a contract was placed on him if he ended up marrying her in one of the first public interracial couplings of that era. He was told to break off the engagement and instead marry a black woman, so that’s exactly what he did, and the contract was then called off.
