Anne Hathaway Engaged – Actress Anne Hathaway is finally engaged after dating Adam Shulman for three years. It comes after the actress went through a public break-up with ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri in 2008, when Follieri was arrested and pleaded guilty on fraud charges. In 2004, she began a relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri.
Hathaway took part in the development of the charitable Follieri Foundation serving as a financial donor as well as a member of the foundation’s board of directors until 2007. It was a Manhattan-based charity founded in 2003 focusing on programs such as providing vaccinations for children in Third World nations. However, the organization had come under investigation in June 2008 by the IRS, for failing to file the tax papers required from non-profit organizations.
Citing the fear that this and other ongoing legal issues involving Follieri would become detrimental to her acting career, Anne ended her relationship with him in mid-June 2008.
Follieri was arrested in June 2008 on fraud charges for allegedly fleecing investors out of millions of dollars in a scheme in which he posed as the Vatican’s point man on real estate investing.
It was reported that the FBI confiscated Hathaway’s private journals from Follieri’s New York City apartment as part of their ongoing investigation into his activities; however, Anne was not charged with any crime.
On October 23, 2008, after earlier pleading guilty, the real estate developer was sentenced to four and a half years in prison.
Hathaway stars in upcoming superhero film “The Dark Knight Rises,” playing Selina Kyle, Catwoman, opposite Christian Bale’s Batman, in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises set for release in 2012 and Fantine in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables.
