Born into poverty, raped at age fourteen, pregnant and married at sixteen and subjected to brutal beatings by her husband, world middleweight champion Jake LaMotta. Eventually Vikki left Jake, worked as a chorus girl to support three young children, was pursued by Frank Sinatra, and became romantically involved with mob boss Sam Giancana. At one time or another, she crossed paths with the likes of Babe Ruth, Johnny Carson, and Robert DiNiro. At age 51, she posed nude for Playboy. The issue sold more copies to women than any issue of Playboy ever."@en ;
