Allegra Versace is the daughter of designer Donatella Versace and Paul Beck and the niece of the late Gianni Versace.
Allegra was 11 when her uncle Gianni was shot and killed on the steps of his home in Miami Beach.
In his will, Gianni Versace left 50 percent of his fashion empire to Allegra, 30 percent to his older brother, Santo, and 20 percent to his younger sister, Donatella. Allegra inherited approximately half a billion dollars from the Versace fashion empire when she turned 18 in 2004. She has the last say of the sale and other important details in the Versace clothing line.
Allegra was educated at a British school in Milan, and attended Brown University in Rhode Island.
Allegra has appeared emaciated for several years, speculating rumors of an eating disorder. In March 2007, her parents released a joint statement that Allegra was in treatment for anorexia.
