Sometimes you just can’t escape your family’s past.
Michael Sam’s boyfriend Vito Cammisano has been in the spotlight ever since the couple shared a kiss on national television, and now we know even more about him!
In addition to liking Wild Berry Skittles, the University of Missouri swimmer also hails from a line of midwestern mobsters.
Willie ‘the Rat’ Cammisano is Vito’s grandpa, and his father Gerlarmo ‘Jerry’ Cammisano spent 14 months in prison for gambling! They were both involved with the Civella crime family in Kansas City, reportedly.
In fact, they were so brutal that Willie got his name by leaving dead bodies in the sewers for the rats to eat.
The good news is that by all accounts, Vito stayed very far away from his family’s past. Cathy Nigro, Vito’s aunt, added:
“He’s been a pleasant, pleasant boy all his life.”
And Sam should feel pretty secure in his choice of partner because when asked for a comment about the situation, Vito wrote back, “Have a great week and Go Rams!” and told them to talk to Sam’s agent.
We’re so glad this seems to be a non-issue because this couple is just so perfect together!
