While their love story has had its ups and downs, it is heartening to see that they are still together. So, let’s take a closer look at who Evanka Franjko is and how she’s related to Joey.
Evanka Franjko’s Relationship with Joey Buttafuoco, a TV Star
Everyone is familiar with actor Joey Buttafuoco’s acting career and success. He was, however, fortunate enough to experience similar good fortune in his personal life.
Evanka Franjko, a Croatian diva, married the showbiz star on March 5, 2005, in front of close friends and family. The ‘False Reality’ actor pulled off a lavish wedding ceremony on the big day, as expected.
Evanka Franjko met her husband in Joey’s auto body shop, according to their love story. The diva went into the shop to have her car fixed, but she struck up a special friendship with Buttafuoco. They eventually began dating for a period of time before marrying in 2005.
Ex-husband of Evanka Franjko is a rapist?
With Joey’s shady past, everyone thought Evanka Franjko had a strong personality when she married him. Initially, her husband was married to Mary Jo Buttafuoco, his first wife. However, while still married, he broke all the rules by having an extramarital affair with Amy Fisher, a 17-year-old girl.
When Amy, a minor, rushed into Joey’s house and revealed her infidelity dating back to 1991, things took a dramatic turn. She then shot Mary in the face on the right side. Joey was charged with statutory rape, sodomy, and endangering the welfare of life as a result of the investigations. Franjko’s beau later admitted to the allegations, despite initially denying them. As a result, he was sentenced to four months in prison.
Joey’s ex-wife Mary Buttafuoco filed divorce papers on February 3, 2003, following the bailout. As a result, they parted ways, and he met Franjko after a few years. Mary wrote a book describing Joey as a sociopath 16 years after the tragic incident.
