Claudia Haro was on the rise to stardom, gaining fame for her appearances in high-profile Hollywood films. Her career was cut short when she landed on the wrong side of the law, though that didn't dissipate the fame attached to her name. Instead, she grew infamous for conspiring to murder her second husband.

Claudia remained close to her first spouse, who supported her as she faced her charges. She reportedly had two children, though only one has been confirmed to be her offspring. Following the result of her trial, which also involved her younger brother, Claudia couldn't be present in her daughter's life until late into the 2010s.

Though it's unknown when their romance began, Joe and Claudia tied the knot on September 7, 1988. But, after about four years, they divorced in 1992. According to some reports, the couple welcomed a daughter, Tiffany Pesci, into their union. However, another report said Joe had a 25-year-old daughter by the same name in 1992.

Two years after he and Claudia ended their marriage, he revealed during an interview that they'd rekindled their relationship and lived a quiet and modest lifestyle on the Jersey Shore. Whenever he traveled to Los Angeles for work, Joe said he would rent a car and a place to stay.

Garrett Warren is a former professional stuntman who later ventured into writing and directing. He's best known for his work in world-renowned films, including "Avatar" and the sequels, "Alice In Wonderland," "Divergent," and "Alita Battle Angel."

With his experience as a former World Champion Martial Artist, he has also trained actors such as Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba, and Hugh Jackman for their fight scenes. Garrett married Claudia in March 1998, later welcoming a daughter with the former actress that December.

He filed for divorce in July 1999, and it was finalized with joint custody of their child the following year; however, that wasn't the end of their relationship. In May 2000, Garrett was enjoying a quiet night with his daughter when he was attacked at gunpoint in his home. He sustained four bullet wounds but miraculously survived.

As police investigated, they uncovered a plot involving his ex-wife, Claudia. They found that she had conspired to murder him and had contacted her brother, Manny, to help her hire a hitman. Speaking about the experience, Garrett said his suspicions began the moment he was hauled out to the hospital that evening.

Claudia tried to have him assassinated once more, but the attempt never came to pass. She was tried for her part in the crime, pleading no contest to two counts of attempted murder. She was sentenced to twelve years and four months in prison in April 2012 but received an early release in August 2019.

Joe Pesci Hired a Private Investigator

He did so to support Claudia, as he believed in her innocence. The two had remained close and walked several red carpets together, even after Garrett filed for divorce.

However, the gesture turned sour, as the private investigator sued Joe for alleged breach of contract in 2007, claiming the actor owed over $100K for the services delivered. The PI later dropped the charges that year.
