Anne Hathaway’s ex Raffaello Follieri is speaking out about their split following his fraud arrest in 2008. He claims he “never” heard from her, despite their four-year relationship, once he was arrested. Shortly after his arrest, she was featured in an InStyle cover story gushing about their romance.
He told The Daily Mail: “That night Annie phoned me from Los Angeles where she was doing press. We were on the phone for 10 minutes talking about when she might come home. If I remember, Annie’s last words were ‘I love you forever’ and we ended the call. That was 2 a.m. on June 24, 2008. At 6 a.m. I was arrested. I never spoke to Annie again.”
The pair met through friends. He was accused of stealing $6 million from investors while posing as a Vatican official. He pleaded guilty and spent five years behind bars.
He added: “Never, never, never. I think she made a business decision. She decided saving her career was most important. I am not bitter. You can look in my eyes. I don’t have anger but I’ve been hurt.”
