Anne Hathaway's Conman Ex, Raffaello Follieri, "Wants The Best" for Her
Remember Raffaello Follieri? The dashing Italian businessman who dated Anne Hathaway, only to be incarcerated for 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering?
Well, after spending about four years in prison, he's back in Italy and wishing his ex, Anne, only the best with her engagement to actor Adam Shulman. Raffaello met Anne when she was only 21 and the two dated for over four years before he was convicted and sentenced to five years behind bars in Loretto, Penn.
"I want only the best for this person," he said to ABC's Nightline. "She was very sweet to me. We had, I think, a very nice relationship. I don't have anything bad to say."
He even admits the two talked about marriage, amidst their lavish lifestyle and slew of pricey vacations largely funded by the money he'd duped out of wealthy investors and celebrities.
"When you have 25 years old and you have a company growing very fast, you get carried away in situation," he said. "At the time, my life was pretty good. I had a girl that I love. My business was going well... I thought that was the American dream. But it was not so long later that everything fall apart."
Anne and Adam became engaged in November. While it was rumored the two would tie the know this summer, those plans had to be shelved due to Anne's work commitments. She's gearing up for a hectic promotion of The Dark Knight Rises, which hits theaters next month and just wrapped the movie version of Les Misérables this spring.
