20 Celebrities with (Alleged) Ties to the Mafia

You'll be surprised by some of the celebrities with alleged ties to the mafia, the crime bosses, mafiosos, mobsters, and gangsters. Of course, there are the obvious actors who've played mafiosos, people like Al Pacino and James Caan. They're the kind of actors who may have gotten deep into their characters by hanging out with actual mobsters... "Method Acting." 
But this list also includes people who you wouldn't expect, like English bombshell Elizabeth Hurley. What has she been doing with mobsters? Does the mafia really like the 2000 film Bedazzled? Was their relationship the inspiration for Mickey Blue Eyes
And, furthermore, what was the mafia doing with Tito Puente? Did they just really need someone to play the vibraphone at a mob function? 
It's important to remember these relationships haven't been confirmed, these are just celebrities who have been rumored to have mafia connections. Perhaps they got connected because they went to the same birthday party. Or maybe it's something more sinister. Maybe Wayne Newton's success in Las Vegas will require him to pay a few favors out to the mob? 
Let your imagination run wild with this list!
