DRESSED FOR THE PART in fur and diamonds, the reputed grand goumada of Mafia molls emerged yesterday to deny that her granddaughter is John Gotti’s love child.
Eighty year old Rosemarie Connelly, alleged to be the longtime lover of the late Gambino crime family underboss Aniello (Neil) Dellacroce, tried to nail a stake through the mob lore that her granddaughter Meagan Grillo, 19, was the Dapper Don’s illegitimate offspring.
Connelly emerged from her Staten Island house wearing a full length sable coat,
trendy Ugg boots and a glittery assortment of bling on her fingers.
“Nothing is true and please leave my family alone,” the grandmother told reporters.
Looking like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in black sunglasses and a pearl necklace as gleaming as her smile, Shannon Connelly, 49, glibly said “not today” when asked for a fresh comment.
She has denied being the late mob boss’ secret squeeze and has insisted Meagan and two sisters all have the same father, convicted Gambino soldier Ernest Grillo, 49.
Meagan Grillo has yet to speak on her possible Gotti connection, and has remained secluded in her house too tearful to show her face.
But her uncle Sean Connelly stuck up for the former Catholic school girl now studying to be a dental hygienist at New York City College of Technology.
The love child chase started last week when mob rat Michael (Mikey Scars) DiLeonardo, testifying against John A. (Junior) Gotti,
said the Dapper Don “has a secret second family and a daughter he fathered out of wedlock.
