Rag Trade: Allegra Versace 'Not' In Rehab; Mom Donatella Still In Denial

  • Although Donatella Versace and Paul Beck admit that their daughter Allegra suffers from anorexia, the two are ready to sue over reports that the 20-year-old has been hospitalized for treatment of the eating disorder, saying that "remarks...in certain publications in relation to Allegra's state of health do not in any way correspond to the truth." Oh really? The girl is as sickly a young woman as we've seen in a while. We think a hospitalization might be the most prudent course of action. [WWD]
