"More trouble for Raffaello Follieri, the fiancé of “Devil Wears Prada” star
Anne Hathaway; Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is investigating the Follieri
Foundation, a charity headed by the 29-year-old Italian businessman. The Post
has it that Cuomo’s office has subpoenaed financial documents belonging to the
Manhattan-based foundation, which is involved with vaccinating children in
developing countries, among other things.
"Follieri last made headlines when he was arrested for bouncing a $215,000 company check issued on behalf of his real estate company. Those charges were dropped when he paid up last month, and earlier this year he also settled a lawsuit brought by billionaire Ron Burkle, who accused Follieri of "systematically misappropriating" at least $1.3 million from a joint business venture to finance his lavish lifestyle.
"Hathaway’s spokesman tells the Post that the actress no longer serves on the foundation’s board, though she had traveled to Central America with Follieri last year for a charity-funded vaccination program. Cuomo’s office declined to elaborate on the investigation, but apparently it has something to do with the foundation’s failure to file tax-disclosure forms required of nonprofit groups."
