Mafia legend John Gotti's widow Victoria has been hospitalised, according to a U.S. report.
The late crime boss' wife, who will be played by Kelly Preston in her husband John Travolta's upcoming biopic of the mob chief, suffered a stroke last week (begs13May13) and her children are currently asking for privacy as they cope with their mother's condition.
Marc Fiore, the producer behind the much-delayed film Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, has also declined to comment on her alleged health woes, telling the New York Daily News, "This is a personal family crisis."
Gotti has suffered two strokes in the last eight years and she underwent surgery in 2007 to treat a blockage in her brain.
Preston is set to portray the 70 year old in the movie, while the actress' real-life partner Travolta will play the convicted Gambino family boss, who died behind bars in 2002.
The former president was believed by some to have been suffering from dementia during his second term in office from 1984 to 1988.
