‘Long Island Lolita’ Amy Fisher who famously shot the wife of her 35-year-old lover when she was just 16 has returned to New York after her three children were ‘ostracized’ in Florida.
Fisher, 42, better known as the Long Island Lolita, became notorious for shooting her lover’s wife in the face in 1992.
She spent seven years in jail for assault after which she forged a brief career in the world of adult entertainment.
Fisher had moved to Florida in 2011 and worked at a West Palm Beach club but has now returned to New York to avoid ‘lunatics’ coming after her and her children.

Fisher was jailed for six years after pleading guilty to first-degree aggravated assault
Fisher became famous when she severely wounded Mary Jo Buttafuoco, the wife of her lover Joey Buttafuoco, after shooting her in the face.
Mary Jo survived the attack, and was later able to identify Fisher.
Fisher was jailed for six years after pleading guilty to first-degree aggravated assault.
Her lover also served six months for statutory rape of a minor.
In a previous interview Mary Jo said: ‘I never saw a gun. She didn’t threaten me with anything. I just turned, and I put my hand on the door to open it, and that was the end of it. That was the end of my life as I knew it.’

After her release in 1999, Fisher briefly became a columnist for the Long Island Press.
In 2003, she married Louis Bellera [24 years her senior] – a former New York police officer – but the couple divorced in 2015 [after splitting in 2007].
During that time, she starred in her own pay-per-view adult film entitled ‘Amy Fisher: Totally Nude and Exposed’ and made a handful of other adult movies. She walked away from the industry in 2011.

Now, after six years in Florida, the infamous ‘Long Island Lolita’ is returning to New York for a ‘fresh start’.
Speaking to the New York Post, she said: ‘My kids were ostracized in Florida. They had no friends. All the mothers thought their kids would get the Amy Fisher gene if they hung out with them.
‘Things got so bad for my [eldest] son, the school psychologist even suggested he drop out and get his GED.’
She also claimed a stalker jumped over her fence surrounding their gated community to harass her.
‘I was really scared. ‘I want me and my children to be safe. I don’t want any lunatics coming after me’, she added.
She told the newspaper: ‘My aunt was telling me to come back. I was isolated in Florida, away from the people we love. Here I have a big Italian family and they all accept me.
‘We enjoy our pasta and meatballs. My children have cousins they can play with.’

Fisher, who briefly reconciled with Buttafuoco after her split from Bellera, also bemoaned her struggles to find a new boyfriend.
She said: ‘As soon as they find out who I am, it’s the kiss of death or they have a million questions. Nobody wants to date me. My longest relationship lasted like six weeks.’
She also said she hadn’t had sex in more than a year, adding: ‘Can you believe that?’
