The second season of Ryan Murphy's anthology series, which premieres January 17, examines the death of the famed Italian fashion designer - but his family wants viewers to know that the series "should only be considered a work of fiction", adding that much of the story has been sensationalized and is based on "second-hand hearsay".

The series features an ensemble cast, including Ricky Martin as Gianni's boyfriend Antonio D'Amico, and Penelope Cruz playing the designer's sister Donatella Versace, as well as Darren Criss, Max Greenfield and Dascha Polanco.

USA channel FX, which airs the series, responded to the Versace family's first statement. "Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction". The Versace family let the audience know that the upcoming series was not made or even conceived with their input and that it may even be in direct opposition to the real-life facts of the case.

Penelope Cruz would not have taken on her new role as Donatella Versace without the fashion mogul's consent. They also added that they did not have any involvement in the Orth book which the series is based on so by default, the family states that both the book and the series are works of fiction. "Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions", the family claims.

In the book, Orth claims to have information on a medical condition that Gianni was afflicted with, which she found out about from a person who allegedly reviewed his post-mortem test results.

The over the authenticity of " intensified Wednesday with dueling statements from the show's executive producer, and the Versace fashion house.

FX and those behind the show used Maureen Orth's Vulgar Favors as the base of the series, and also stood by its production in a statement. Maureen Orth is an impeccable reporter and we stand by her reporting.

Following Monday's premiere, the Versace family released a statement confirming members had no input in the project. "Of all the possible portrayals of his life and legacy, it is sad and reprehensible that the producers have chosen to present the distorted and bogus version created by Maureen Orth".

"Versace is based on a non-fiction book by Maureen Orth that has been discussed and dissected and vetted for close to 20 years", he explained.
