Anne Hathaway, in the clear

In happier, less fraudulent times

Word is that Anne Hathaway and her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri are no longer locking lips, all over a silly little thing called tax evasion:

The Devil Wears Prada actress Anne Hathaway put on a brave face at her latest film premiere last night after breaking up with long-term boyfriend Raffaello Follieri, the Mail Online can reveal.

The 25-year-old movie star ended her four year relationship with Italian-American businessman, 29, over the weekend.

Last week, it was reported his charity Follieri Foundation, which funded vaccination programmes in developing countries, was being investigated by the New York State Attorney General’s Office.

An insider tells the Mail Online that Hathaway made the painful decision to end their relationship because of the effects his controversial business dealings could have on her career….

….The couple were reported to have split briefly last year after Follieri was sued by a former business associate for bouncing a  $215,000 cheque.

Criminal charges against Follieri were dropped after he turned himself into police and settled the outstanding bill.

With a track record like this guy, I am surprised she stayed with him for that long. Surely his Italian charm couldn’t have been that charming. Surely there are other eligible guys around doing nobile charity work too.  Surely it must have got tiring the fifth time the cops came running up the red carpet yelling Freeze! to arrest your shady businessman-boyfriend and his suitcase full of money.

Oh no, I'm not dressed for jail!
