Anthony Pellicano’s Mafia Ties

January 29. 2008

Anthony Pellicano, the disgraced and incarcerated private investigator to Madonna, Bert Fields, Tom Cruise, O.J. Simpson and Brad Grey, has ties to the Mafia.

For years he’d cultivated an image of a Sicilian, baseball bat carrying, knife wielding, Godfather watching thug, nicknamed “The Sin Eater,” but there is actually a reason for his conduct – according to numerous credible reports, he is mixed up with the mafia.

The harassment of Los Angeles Times writer Anita Busch by Anthony Pellicano has a mafia angle. Busch was investigating his client, actor Steven Seagal, and his ties to the mafia, which has since been widely written about in the press.

Last year Anthony Pellicano was also formally accused by the government of calling for a mob hit on one of his former employees, to stop him from testifying at the PI’s forthcoming Hollywood trial for illegal wiretapping, harassment and witness intimidation, in an ongoing case that’s already netted 12 arrests.

“Feds Say Anthony Pellicano Was Part of Joey “The Clown” Lombardo’s Crew”

The Chicago Sun-Times reports: Allegations of mob ties have long dogged Anthony Pellicano, once the private investigator of choice for Hollywood stars.

On Thursday, for the first time, the feds marked his place in Chicago mob history, saying he once belonged to the mob crew of Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo.

A former associate of Lombardo, Alva Johnson Rodgers, is cooperating with the feds and is expected to testify at trial that Pellicano asked him to torch two buildings in the mid-1970s.

Pellicano grew up in Cicero and worked in Chicago for years before heading to California. The Sun-Times first reported last month that Pellicano did the investigative work to provide Lombardo with an alibi for the 1974 murder of a key federal witness against Lombardo.

In one case, Pellicano allegedly paid Rodgers to shut down a restaurant. Rodgers got some neighborhood kids to break the restaurant’s windows, which hurt business, but Pellicano allegedly was looking for something a little more permanent, like burning the place down. Rodgers allegedly declined and refused to give Pellicano his money back.

In another instance, previously reported by the Sun-Times, Pellicano allegedly asked Rodgers to burn down a building in the northwest suburbs, and Rodgers complied. No word yet from Hollywood liberals who’ve hired Pellicano over the years.”
