Anne Hathaway's Ex-Boyfriend Arrested -- Again!
Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri, aka Anne Hathaway‘s ex-boyfriend, was arrested on Tuesday on charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.
According to a federal criminal complaint, Follieri, 29, is accused of operating a fraudulent real estate scheme in which he led investors to believe that his New York firm, the Follieri Group LLC, was an investment company that helped the Catholic Church to divest its unwanted U.S. real estate properties. He also told investors that he had been appointed as the chief financial officer of the Vatican.
Follieri and others reportedly used the investors’ money for lavish lifestyles for themselves–private jet travel, custom-made clothes and restaurant meals, dog-walking services and other personal expenditures.
Hathaway, 25, supposedly broke up with Follieri last week after four years together.
