Renee Graziano Tells Us About AJ’s Arrest Saying “My Son Did Nothing Wrong”

|


Last week we heard that Mob Wives star Renee Graziano‘s son, AJ, had been arrested. Knowing what we know about AJ, who has said on-camera that he has no desire to be a part of “the life” and he’s always appeared to stay out of trouble, we wondered what the real story was, so we went right to the source. TMZ has reported that AJ and his girlfriend happened to drive past two girls a few weeks ago who were involved in a fight, and he pulled over to break them up. Last Wednesday, he was arrested for hitting one of the girls.

On Friday, we actually hung out for a bit with Renee to find out what the story was, and while she was fairly quiet on the subject, she was adamant that AJ will be proven innocent. “My son did nothing wrong, except try to do the right thing,” she told us, saying that any allegations against him are “untrue.” Similarly, AJ’s rep told TMZ that the arrest was just the result of the girl’s attempt to defame him. “Beyond engaging in violent behavior,” the rep said, “it speaks very poorly of this girl’s character that she would blatantly lie in an attempt to defame AJ’s name. The truth will come out and we feel justice will be served.”

    i love mob wives like renee im 11 year old in i watch mob wives i like you renee graziano

  7. jd says:

    they only arrested him because of who his parents and grandparents are. and because of his mother being on the show. if he were any one else they would have thanked him for helping until the police came and he would have been able to go on with his life knowing he did a good deed but instead they have to break his balls arrest him and everything else just so they have something to put into the tabloids. i couldnt agree with renee more that he did absolutely nothing wrong except try to help stop a fight and last time i checked thats called doing a good deed.

  8. Deb says:

    Seems like a perfectly reasonable explanation – give this kid a break! He and his mom have been thru enough. I think this girl is disgusting for trying to stir up trouble!

  9. ANNETTE CICCARELLI says:

    HOW MUCH MORE CAN THIS GIRL TAKE

  10. Renee L. says:

    Hey, I am so sorry about the news. AJ seems like a nice individual and probably was at the wrong place at the right time. Or something to the fact. Anyway, the truth will come out and then it will be better. Like they say the truth shall set you free! Great picture. Food looks tasty. Take Care and keep your head held up high. Reach for the stars!
    Renee’

  11. Barbara says:

    And you wonder why no one wants to get involved. No matter who you are!!!! You end up in the wrong and in trouble.

  12. DORIS says:

    LOVE RENEE BUT YOU WHEN I PROBLEM ARISES THEY JUST NEVER SEEM TO STOP, RENEE WILL BE FINE AND AJ

  13. Diana Rodriguez says:

    I really don’t believe that he became violent with anyone, I think the girl just figured out that AJ was in a reality show as is looking for 15 minutes of fame.
    Poor Rene, she is going through enough.

  14. Melissa Jo Perski says:

    My advice to AJ is to call the police the next time you happen to come across 2 girls fighting and keep on driving down the road.

  15. EILEEN says:

    I HAVE TWO YOUNG SONS MYSELF…THESE YOUNG GIRLS TODAY…PLAY VICTIM….WHAT YOUNG GIRL WHO IS IN A FIGHT WITH ANOTHER GIRL..AND THEN SOME GUY TRIES TO BREAK IT UP..BUT MAYBE..SHE WAS SWINGING HER HANDS..AND HIS HAND GOT CAUGHT…SO..THE FIRST THING YOU DO..IS CALL THE POLICE..WHAT IS IT TO SIT DOWN WITH THE FAMILIES..AND TRY TO RESOLVE…TODAY IS 911…SAD..WHEN IT IS MISUSED….

  16. Lisa Nelson says:

    Leave this lil big man alone gzz….he’s a great kid & people are HATERZZZZZ <3<3<3

  17. I don’t believe that AJ is that type of person. Praying for Renee and her family. The girl is probably trying to get her name in news due to Renee Family.

  18. Linda says:

    It’s bad enough he has to contend with a rotten piece of work like his rat Father, it’s made worse by some fame seeking witch. I think AJ tried to do the right thing and got the shaft for it.
    Geez, let the poor kid alone and let him go on with his life.

  19. springer says:

    SURE IS A HANDSON YOUN MAN…LOVE THE SHOW…

  20. Lisa Marie says:

    Leave this boy alone he has enough to deal with & is a great kid, A.J. just tell all your haters thanks for the love <3

  21. Meg Radley says:

    Renee , I have 4 sons and they were raised to respect women also so I know if one of mine saw a fight whether female or males they would try to help defuse the situation your son is being targeted by publicty seekers who otherwise would not ever be known Your a good mom and a strong person so please give him a hug for us here in East Nassau NY stay strong and GOD BLESS YOU & AJ the truth will come out

  22. cris says:

    I’m glad to see everyone in support of A.J.!! Pray A.J. this too shall pass!

  23. Cherina says:

    Renee, keep strong my family is praying for you and AJ. No one comes between a Mom and her son. That chick is just trying to cash in. He will be proven innocent.

  24. Leah says:

    Tell Drita to kick her ass!

  25. Megan Carmichael says:

    I dont think AJ would do something like that….If i would have seen girls are guys fighting like that I would try to break them up also…and I do believe that the girls would defame him thinking that would get a settlement thinking that renee is rich and all for having a show…people are scandalous in this crazy messed up world and would try anything to come up on a buck then get a job!!! im on your side renee..

  26. Vinniedm says:

    AJ, you seem like a no-drama kind of guy. I feel for you–between your dad and granddad it would seem that you don’t have snowball chance in hell to avoid the “life”. All I can say is be strong, stay true to your beliefs and prove everybody wrong. Stay away from bad influences. I wish you The best of luck.

  27. fran says:

    the video shows them jumping a girl.while her two friends were screaming to them sto hitting her she has a heart condition.but they continued.at the end of the video was aj pulling his girlfriend off of two 14 yr old girls she was also beating on,and the only reason he did was because a police car was driving down the block and they fled.if they were helping they would have flagged the police down,they did not because they are all guilty each and everyone of those animals some people call there children.and iam sick over what i have seen what a disgrace…justice will come

  28. Kathy Martino says:

    You and AJ hang in there. You’ve been through quite a lot lately and for someone to try to throw your son into the limelight in such a negative way is a shame. Prayers for you and your family.

  29. Mil says:

    Renee, Stay strong and don’t let them break you down. You are a good mother and AJ is a good kid. Too bad some people feel they can make up lies because of who he is related to. Hopefully the truth will come out.

  30. Teri Edge says:

    You are a good man AJ. Don’t worrry. And if all else fails, momma will take care of you no matter what!

  31. Marlene says:

    Sorry folks….but Renee said the same thing about Junior. AJ is in high school and out of control. Disrespectful to his mother and she has no control over him. I hope things turn around for him and he takes a different path; but attitude adjustment needs to come first.

  32. skyangl55 says:

    Renee,you’re right,A.J did nothing wrong and as a fact neither did you.We can’t help who we fall in love with and our children shouldn’t be punished for what we or their father has done.AJ seems like a strong kid who has a good head on his shoulders but all we can do is hope and pray and do our best to raise our children to be good honest loving individuals that do the right thing in life.Stay strong and God Bless you and your family.

  33. Personally, I feel that (1) AJ’s arrest may have been staged to bring him publicity for the Mob Wifes Show, or (2) AJ’s accuser knows of his fame and wants some money from him and his mother, Renee Graziano, and (3). Whatever happens AJ will come out smelling like a rose, after all his mother has connections don’t she???

  34. MARY HAMILTON says:

    HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BRING MOB WIVES BACK SOON!!! RENEE YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR SON BETTER! DON’T LET JR. TAKE YOUR SON DOWN TO. AND YOU NEED TO STAND BY DRITA, AND KICK KARENS DUMD ASS !!!! SHE’S SO FONNY,AND LIVING ON HER FATHERS NAME,TELL HER TO GROW UP SISTER!
