Failed Marriages

Claudia first got married to the famous ‘The Home Alone’ actor Joe Pesci. The duo met each other for the first time in an Easter Brunch. They two dated for several years before tying the knot on 7th May 1988. Although it was Claudia’s first marriage, it was a third wedding for Joe Pesci.

However, the couple ended their marriage in 1992, after their relationship started getting bitter. Even though they were divorced, they maintained a good relationship and ended on a good note.

After her separation from her first husband, Claudia, she started dating a stuntman Garrett Warren, and the two married on March 25, 1998. In the same year their daughter, Kaylie was born. Unfortunately, their marriage lasted for a short time when Garrett filed for divorce, and the couple separated on July 13, 1999.

Haro and Warren were involved in a legal battle over the custody of their daughter. However, Garrett won the custody that drove Claudia very angry. Later, she hired a killer to assassinate Garrett Warren.

Abusive Ex-Boyfriend

Moreover, after her divorce from Garrett Warren, Claudia started dating Russell Armstrong, a reality star from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. He was said to have a  very abusive personality and often hit Claudia during their year-long relationship. Russell once slapped Claudia, causing her neck to snap back after accusing her of cheating on him.

“He hit me in the face so hard that my neck snapped back….I got out of Russell’s car and dialed 911. However, I was put on hold. I was standing next to Russell’s car with my cell phone in my hand when he walked around the car, pulled my cell phone out of my hand and he broke it by pulling the top part of my flip phone off. Russell then grabbed both of my wrists so hard that it hurt.”

Haro also saw Armstrong slap his son Aiden hard across the face on multiple occasions when he came to visit him. However, Russell committed suicide on 2011, and Claudia was dragged into the controversies on his suicide. Later, it was proved that Claudia had nothing to do in Russell’s suicide.

Attempted Murder

In June 2000, the court reannounced joint custody of Claudia’s and Garrett’s daughter Kaylie. However, on May 2000, a stranger rang the doorbell on Warren’s  Westlake Village, California, home for about six times. The man at the door wanted to know if the car on the driveway was Garrett’s. 

“I said, ‘Yeah, that’s my car.’ So I open the door and peeked my head outside to see if my car had been hit,” Warren recounted in the interview. “And when I did, he had a gun down by his right side by his right leg and he picked it up and started shooting at me.”

The stranger had a gun with him, just as Garrett looked out. He was shot four times on his doorstep with a .32 ACP, on his chest, neck, and his left hip. As he was lying on the floor bleeding, the man again fired at him blinding his right eyes.  Not only Warren, but his then 64-year-old mother also became a victim of the fatal attack, as the man fired two shots her way, nearly hitting her head before running away.

The first suspect behind the attack was Claudia because of their divorce and legal battle for the custody of their daughter. So, the police arrested her, but they had to let her go due to insufficient evidence against her. Garret’s case was put on hold for about two years after that.

Imprisonment Sentence

After about two years, San Bernardino police came across a car whose trunk had an envelope that had a picture of Garrett Warren and a map of his house. The car belonged to a drug dealer and restaurant owner, Miguel Quiroz. The case again recalled itself after two years.  All the clues led police to Haro’s younger brother Manuel Haro and hitman Jorge Hernandez, who was involved in the crime. Manuel Haro hired a hitman for $10,000 as per Claudia’s wish.

In, December 2005 Claudia was arrested for the charges of attempted murder and principal firearm charge for the attempted murder of her ex-husband Garrett Warren. Actor Joe Pesci’s name was also dragged in the controversy because Claudia was residing at Pesci’s guest house. However, there was no evidence against him.

On April 2012, Claudia was sentenced to 12 years and four months imprisonment at California Institution for Women in Corona, California. It was unlikely she would serve her entire sentence. She was released on August 2019.
