American Nancy Shevell and Macca have been snapped kissing and enjoying each other’s company in the recent weeks.

However, her family’s trucking company New England Motor Freight was accused by the US government in 1988 of having links with one of the most feared Mafia bosses in the country, and of making Mob pay-offs.

According to US reports a lawsuit was filed by the FBI in 1988 against Nancy’s father Myron “Mike” Shevell.

The lawsuit accused Myron of having “corrupt relationship” with reputed Mob killer and extortionist Tony Provenzano.

The US labour department also claimed that Vincent Gigante, of the feared Genovese crime family, was involved in a conspiracy with Mr Shevell’s company to take control of a Teamsters Union branch, and that Myron made a “sweetheart’ deal with the Mob which meant making pay-offs to them in return for the company operating outside union rules.

However, Mr Shevell insists the lawsuit was settled without him admitting wrongdoing. (ANI)
