Former Playboy Playmate 'used gun from Polanski in attempted murder'.

London, Dec 14 (ANI): A former Playboy Playmate of the Year who allegedly attempted to kill her husband apparently used a gun given to her decades ago by the filmmaker Roman Polanski.

66 years-old Angela Dorian, who was Playmate of the Year in 1968, was arrested in October following a shooting at her Hollywood home. She has pleaded not guilty.

Dorian appeared as a recovering heroin addict in Polanski's 1968 horror movie 'Rosemary's Baby' and was friends with the director's then wife Sharon Tate.

In August 1969 followers of cult leader Charles Manson murdered Tate, who was then eight months pregnant.

Following the horrific killing, Polanski is said to have given his own gun, a Walther PPK, to Dorian for self-protection.

She is alleged to have used it following a row with her husband four decades later.

Dorian, also known as Victoria Vetri, faces a potential life sentence if convicted.

"I loved her for nearly 25 years. A divorce would have been sufficient, not a bullet," the Telegraph quoted her husband Bruce Rathgeb, who survived the alleged attack, as telling TMZ. (ANI)
