Kenny "Kenji" Gallo (born in 1968 ) is a Japanese-Italian American gangster-turned-informant, a former director and producer of adult films, and an author.
A convicted narcotics dealer on the West Coast associated with the Los Angeles crime family and New York City's Colombo crime family, Gallo became an informant against such mafioso as alleged Colombo crime family heir apparent Theodore "Teddy" Persico Jr..

Criminal career and life as an informant
Following the death of convicted hitman Charles Harrelson, Gallo was interviewed and identified in the Sunday 2007 issue of The Sunday Times as a "convicted Mafia associate" and friend of Harrelson.
An adult film and B-movie director and producer from the late 1980s to the early 2000s, he directed twenty-nine adult films. He was also the producer of the B movies Babewatch 3 and Babewatch 4. While a filmmaker, Gallo met and married adult entertainment star Tabitha Stevens; their short-lived marriage included a Jerry Springer Show episode titled "I'm Married to a Porn Star!". They divorced in 1997.
Gallo also appears on the Discovery Channel show Flipped: A Mobster Tells All Kenny "Kenji" Gallo and Spike TV's Deadliest Warrior, where he served as an expert for the Medellin Cartel in "Somali Pirates vs. Medellin Cartel".
