Anne Hathaway Finally Dumps Raffaello Follieri

by at . Comments

Anne Hathaway put on a brave face at the premiere of her new film, Get Smart, last night after breaking up with boyfriend Raffaello Follieri.

The 25-year-old star ended her four year relationship with the possibly criminal Italian-American businessman and real estate magnate, 29.

Sources say Anne's days of giving blowjobs at sea came to an end because of the effects his shady business dealings could have on her career.

Last week, it was reported that his charity, the Follieri Foundation, which says it funds vaccination programs in developing countries, was under investigation by the New York State Attorney General's Office.

In April, Raffaello Follieri was arrested on fraud charges after a former business associate sued him for allegedly bouncing a $250,000 check.

Shady Raffaello Follieri has been kicked to the curb by Anne Hathaway.

A source close to Hathaway said: "It's heartbreaking for her to dump him, and she's devastated that it's come to this, but she really didn't have a choice. His scandals - multiple scandals - were hurting her reputation."

Raffaello Follieri often visited Hathaway on the Boston set of her upcoming movie Bride Wars, but they were regularly spotted arguing by crew members.

A friend said: "They fought so much while Anne was making the movie, she genuinely started to wonder if the relationship was worth all the pain."

Anne Hathaway also heard rumors from friends in New York that Raffaello Follieri had been flirting with other women while she was away.

The friend added: "He was extremely caught up in his social life and making connections in New York, and stories would get back to Anne about his late nights and carousing, usually with models in the immediate vicinity."

Filming Get Smart, Hathaway formed a friendship with co-star Steve Carell, who lent her a supportive ear during her problems with Follieri.

"She seemed to really be enjoying her freedom, and making new friends in L.A., especially Steve," said Anne's friend.

Anne Hathaway's split from Raffaello Follieri may mean she finally moves to Hollywood, after years of insisting she would remain on the east coast.

"Even though she loves being near her family in New York, a move out to Los Angeles could mean better roles, a lot more money, and of course a much better pool of potential boyfriends," says the friend.
