Where and/or how did Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway meet?
A mutual friend introduced the two in 2004. She was originally "put off initially by his arrogance and attitude [and that] he pursued her, and within two weeks they were madly in love."
Why did Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway break up?
On 24 June 2008 Follieri was arrested on fraud charges for allegedly fleecing investors out of millions of dollars in a phony scheme involving purchasing Catholic properties in the U.S. for re-development. The FBI alleged that he posed as a financial representative of the Vatican and had duped people into investing in his fraudulent fund as recently as May 2008. Court papers state that Hathaway was an unwitting beneficiary of the stolen money which had in large part paid for Follieri's opulent lifestyle of jet-setting, shopping sprees and fine dining. The judge in the case set bail at $21 million with a stipulation that Follieri must remain under house arrest upon being released on bond. Presently, Hathaway is not facing charges nor is under any investigation in regards to these allegations.
