Actor, Vinny Vella, who starred in “Casino” and many other gangster movies has died at the age of 72 after battling cancer.

Vella’s people posted a message late Wednesday night, saying, “We are saddened to report that Vinny Vella has passed and I’m sure that no one is more saddened than himself.

Vinny loved life from his family to his friends and fans he was easily one of the funniest, endearing actors to have ever graced the screen.”

“Arguably the fastest on the draw, king of the comebacks. His verbal jousting was legendary but many know Vinny for his favorite saying – ‘Who’s better than you?’ Well Vinny, I think we all can agree on the answer to that, it was you, it always was you! We miss you my boy.”

Vinny’s son, Vinny Vella Jr., tells us his father had liver cancer.

Vinny, who has 74 acting credits to his name, memorably played deli owner/mobster Artie Piscano alongside Robert De Niro in “Casino.” He also acted with De Niro in “Analyze That.”

His son also commented, “RIP to my father. I love you so much and I’m so heart broken. You are no longer in pain- no more suffering pops. I love you.”

He was survived by his son and his wife, Margaret.

R. Kelly’s Attorney demands for copies of his sex tape as RnB star appears in court Friday

Published

R.Kelly and his legal team on Friday during his pretrial hearing demanded to get their hands and eyes on the alleged sex tapes that prompted the 10 counts of sexual abuse.

Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ there’s no guarantee what they will get right off the bat, could be police reports, case material from Kelly’s 2008 trial but, obviously, the items they’re most anxious to see are the 2 tapes Michael Avenatti turned over to Cook County prosecutors.

Greenberg says he hasn’t seen the tapes,  which Avenatti claims show Kelly engaged in various sex acts with a 14-year-old girl, so he can’t really begin to mount a defense strategy. Once he does get them, a couple different things could happen.

Kelly also asked the judge to let him travel to Dubai for work. Recall he had to surrender his passport when he got arrested.

However, the judge did not rule on whether Kelly’s team will get copies just yet. Greenberg added the sex tapes should be protected from public viewing.
