Mafia Boss' Son Tells Nick Cannon to Change Reality Show's Title


Nick Cannon


Johnny Fratto claims he came up with a reality show entitled 'Son of a Gun' before the actor/singer makes a similar program with the same name.

The son of infamous American mafia boss Louis 'Cock-Eyed' Fratto has fired off a cease-and-desist letter to MTV, insisting Nick Cannon's upcoming reality show "Son of a Gun" is based on his original idea.

Johnny Fratto, who is a regular guest on Howard Stern's U.S. radio show, claims he came up with a reality program with the same name, centered around the daily life of a post-mafia family, in 2004. He alleges he came "very close" to landing a deal with a number of networks after producing two pilot episodes.

Cannon has now signed a deal with MTV to air "Son of a Gun", about up-and-coming rapper Cory Gunz, and Fratto has accused the TV presenter of stealing his idea as the show also has a mafia theme. According to TMZ.com, Fratto has sent MTV bosses a letter ordering them to pull the program from their schedules unless they change the title.
