What is House of Gucci based on?

The Ridley Scott drama is based on the 2001 book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed, written by Sara Gay Forden, which used the murder to delve into the complex history of the famous family, complete with infighting, corporate intrigue and plenty of money.

I mean...yeah. Definitely sounds like it's based on Amanda Knox, who took it to Medium and Twitter with a lengthy statement/essay accusing the film of profiting off her without her consent.

She continued, "This new film by director Tom McCarthy, starring Matt Damon, is 'loosely based' or 'directly inspired by' the 'Amanda Knox saga,' as Vanity Fair put it in a for-profit article promoting a for-profit film, neither of which I am affiliated with. I want to pause right here on that phrase: 'the Amanda Knox saga.' What does that refer to? Does it refer to anything I did? No. It refers to the events that resulted from the murder of Meredith Kercher by a burglar named Rudy Guede. It refers to the shoddy police work, prosecutorial tunnel vision, and refusal to admit their mistakes that led the Italian authorities to wrongfully convict me, twice."

Amanda went on to question how fictionalized events based on her could impact her real life.

She ended the piece writing, "I have not been allowed to return to the relative anonymity I had before Perugia. My only option is to sit idly by while others continue to distort my character, or fight to restore my good reputation that was wrongfully destroyed.It’s an uphill battle. I probably won’t succeed. But I’ve been here before. I know what it’s like facing impossible odds."
