The ex-husband of RHONJ‘s Dina Manzo allegedly hired a ‘crime family’ member to assault her boyfriend in 2015

The ex-husband of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo was arrested on Tuesday and stands accused of paying an alleged member of the Lucchese crime family to “assault the Bravo star’s current husband in exchange for a lavish wedding reception” back in 2015, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey. Dina’s ex, Thomas Manzo, supposedly promised John Perna, the alleged member of the crime family, “a discounted reception at The Brownstone restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, which Thomas owns,” if the crime was carried out, Us Weekly reports. The assault supposedly took place in July 2015, after Perna allegedly followed Dina’s then-boyfriend David Cantin into a local strip mall. Dina and Manzo split in 2012, and Dina married Cantin in 2017. [Justice.gov, Us Weekly]
