'Mob Wives' Star

Sues Nightclub Over Stabbing

They Boozed Up Attacker

1/15/2015 12:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0115-natalie-guercio-output-tmz-01"Mob Wives" star London Rene --- Natalie Guercio's bf -- is killing two birds with one stone ... filing a civil lawsuit against the guy who allegedly stabbed him AND the club he claims let it happen.

According to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Brooklyn, Rene says Output Club fueled the vicious attack by serving Rodolfy Lopez (his alleged attacker) alcohol even after he was visibly drunk ... a clear violation of New York law.

In the suit, Rene also blames the club (and it all its owners) for its terribly lax security team ... which he says allowed the incident to occur.

As far as his alleged attacker goes ... Rene is suing Lopez for assault and battery and says he suffered terrible injuries -- both mental and physical.  

Rene is seeking unspecified damages. We reached out to Output Club for comment ... so far, no word back.

After Stabbing Incident

EXCLUSIVE

011415_natalie_guerico_london_launchLondon Rene is healing on both the inside and outside following the stabbing/slashing attack last month ... but he refuses to even look in the mirror to see how his scars are healing. 

Rene and his "Mob Wives" star girlfriend Natalie Guercio were out in New York City Tuesday night, where he explained to our photog he still has a long road of recovery ahead of him.  

Rene says he has yet to return to work or exercise and says he has never (and will never) look at the photos of his gruesome injuries. In fact, Rene says he even avoids mirrors now because he doesn't want to see how he looks.  

But above all else, Rene wants to heal up so he can go back to enjoying one particular activity. Considering he's a male ... we think you can guess what it is.

BF Plans to Sue ...

Nightclub Let My Attacker Escape

EXCLUSIVE

0101-london-rene-natalie-guercio-instagram-tmz-02The boyfriend of "Mob Wives" star Natalie Guercio wants to know how a guy with a boxcutter could slash him in a crowded nightclub, and then walk away clean ... and he's ready to sue to get answers.

London Rene tells TMZ he's already talked to his lawyer about taking Output Nightclub to court -- because he has two big problems with the Brooklyn hot spot's security team.

His first issue -- how alleged attacker, Rudy Lopez, got into Output armed with a weapon like a boxcutter. London says his attorney's requested security cam footage for a closer look at what happened when Lopez entered -- but he claims the club doesn't typically frisk guests.

Secondly, Rene says he subdued Lopez after the stabbing, took him to club security guards and asked them to hold him until police arrived. He claims security simply let him go.  

We contacted Output ... so far, no word back.

Mob Wives Stabbing"Mob Wives" star Natalie Guercio says she knows why her boyfriend got knifed -- and she wants to show how brutal the nightclub attack was ... by revealing his horrific wounds.

TMZ broke the story ... London Rene was repeatedly sliced in the face, abdomen and arm in a Brooklyn nightclub. Rodolfy "Rudy" Lopez was arrested Tuesday for the crime.

Natalie tells us she and London met Lopez through mutual friends, but things went south about 8 months ago. She claims Lopez began threatening London and accusing him of spreading rumors that Lopez was a FBI snitch. Clearly a no-no in the mob world.

London's wounds are extremely graphic, but it's easy to see -- just a few inches lower and he could be dead.

Lopez was booked for felony assault and possession of a deadly weapon.

"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano got worked over HARD by a plastic surgeon -- while wide awake -- all in the pursuit of the perfect butt, and the video is a total train wreck ... centered on the caboose, of course. 

Graziano tells TMZ she sought out fat-sucking lipo doc Ayman Shahine to harvest gobs of fat from her butt and lower back to re-shape her ass. As we told you ... GG from "Shahs of Sunsetalso got a butt lift recently.

According to Doc Shahine, Renee's fat transfer took under 2 hours ... and he recorded it for a possible reality TV show.

Two highlights: Renee's groggy testimonial -- and the giant Italian moon that's about to hit your eye like a big pizza pie. 

It won't be Amore.

Too Fat To Sue

EXCLUSIVE

The makers of "Grand Theft Auto V" say they can prove "Mob Wives" star Karen Gravano was NOT the inspiration for one of their characters -- because Karen's way fatter.

Gravano has sued Rockstar Games for $40 million ... claiming a character in the video game -- "Antonia Bottino" -- is a ringer for her.

Rockstar fired back with its own legal docs ... saying Gravano's case is BS.   The company seems to concede there's some resemblance, but the weight of the evidence is in its favor.

Rockstar even tries to drive a wedge between Gravano and her friends, quoting one buddy who says Bottino looks like Gravano, but skinnier.

The company's case is clearly thin.

Here's a shocker ... there was a huge fight at the "Mob Wives" premiere party in NYC last night -- with flying bottles, police and broken bones, TMZ has learned.

Sources involved with the situation tell TMZ ... it all started when the BF of new cast member Natalie Guercio (pictured below) got into a verbal argument with another partygoer ... and things quickly escalated.

1206-natalie-and-boyfriend-facebook
We're told more than ten people started fighting in the middle of the venue ... and multiple sources tell us glass bottles were fired across the party.

One source tells us one of the partygoers suffered a broken ankle in the melee ... but we haven't been able to confirm that.  We do know one person was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Law enforcement tells us ... someone called police around 10:48 PM ... but by the time cops arrived, the fight was over.

FYI -- the whole thing went down at Greenhouse ... which is located in the same building where the Chris Brown vs. Drake bottle-smashing brawl broke out back in 2012.

Teresa and Joe Giudice have a serious heavy hitter in their corner -- Big Ang from "Mob Wives" -- who tells TMZ she's convinced the alleged bank scammers are COMPLETELY INNOCENT.

"I feel like she's innocent and so is he," says Ang -- who knows a little something about the criminal justice system. 

In fact, Ang is not only connected to the Genovese crime family -- but was once arrested in an undercover cocaine sting and pled guilty to an intent to distribute charge.

So, given her background, Ang believes she's the perfect person to give the Giudices some advice on how to handle their situation.
