Anne Hathaway’s diaries confiscated by the FBI

Anne Hathaway really got herself into some pretty big problems with ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri. The real estate investor (more accurately referred to as a con man) is still languishing in jail, unable to afford his $21 million bail. Hathaway has cut all ties with him, but the Daily News just revealed that the FBI has seized Anne’s private diaries as evidence in their case against Follieri.

Anne Hathaway could be drawn deeper into the fraud scandal of her ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, now that FBI agents have seized the actress’ private journals, sources tell us.

The agents confiscated the intimate diaries of the “Devil Wears Prada” star during another raid on Follieri’s $37,500-a-month Trump Tower pad, according to the sources. Seeking to bolster their case against the dashing Italian, who has been charged with 11 counts of fraud and money laundering, agents are also said to have seized photos of Follieri with Bill and Hillary Clinton, Pope John Paul II, and John and Cindy McCain. Also confiscated were documents, watches, a Tiffany clock, an antique Bible and personal photos of Follieri and Hathaway.

Hathaway, who has been charged with no crime, has cut off all contact with the 30-year-old Follieri, say sources. While Follieri recently had associates return to Hathaway a $250,000 abstract painting that had hung in his pad, “she’s changed her numbers so he can’t reach her,” says a friend. “Raffaello has been trying to call her all the time.”

According to friends, he still wonders whether Hathaway, 25, helped put him behind bars. “He was in Europe, working on a deal,” says a source. “He didn’t have to come back to New York. He knew he was being investigated. But she kept calling him, saying they needed to resolve their future. A few days after his return, he was arrested.”

Follieri’s friends say that he’s, “doing very badly,” and being abused in jail. It’s hard to tell if it’s anything unusual or just the run-of-the-mill stuff that’s bound to happen in prison. It certainly isn’t Trump Tower. I’d guess that a lot of things might feel like abuse to Follieri in comparison to the life he was living.

Most stories seem to hint strongly at the likelihood that Anne Hathaway cooperated with the FBI. Frankly I don’t find that as horrendous as most people seem to. The man is accused of committed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of fraud. She was dumb to have stayed with him so long, but frankly I don’t think loyalty to your boyfriend requires breaking the law and lying for him. It’ll be pretty interesting to hear what those diaries contain.

    Yeah, she could have ended up in jail with him if she didn’t do what the feds wanted. Besides, I’m sure his & her relationship wasn’t any more serious than most other celeb relationships.

    Some relationships aren’t worth ruining your life for. Some are though, like parisite and benji(or whichever one she’s dating). THAT’S a match made in heaven! :lol:

    Sorry, can’t help bashin’ on parasite every chance I get. Shame on me! ;)

    I’m with you on the loyalty thing. Loyalty holds no ties beyond the reach of the law, unless of course you knew when you got together that he or she was a conman, I think she is fine with helping the law. Certainly anyone who was conned by him would think so.

  3. Bodhi says:

    One story I read mentioned that the items seized could have been appointment diaries. So… I don’t know that it makes a difference, but I suppose its worth a thought.

    Either way.. I don’t really like Anne, but I’m glad she got away from such a sleeze. I do, however, wonder what her folks thought about him…

  4. Karen says:

    Why didn’t she take those diaries once she left him?

  5. gg says:

    Rule: Don’t keep a diary.

  6. Guy Mandood says:

    but did they seize her Princess Diaries??

  7. Zoe says:

    @Guy Mandude: :lol: good one.

    @Bodhi:I think it makes a difference if they were appointment diaries. If they were personal diaries, it seems more ominous for Anne herself, don’t you think?
    BTW, why don’t you care for her? Just curious.

    Actually: keep it on a computer, encrypted, if you want to keep one.

    And one does have a constitutional right to privacy (at least we did until 9/11/01) – but you gotta wonder why she left them at his place??

  9. Scott F. says:

    Hey, if you’re so smart there smart person, why don’t you show me the passage in the Constitution that directly mentions the word ‘privacy’.

    You are protected from unlawful search and seizure, nothing more. If they went through the proper procedure to get a warrant, then they can have just about anything they want – including your hard drive (which I am sorry to say, will take about 5 minutes to decrypt there buddy.) The term ‘right to privacy’ didn’t even exist in legal circles until around the time it was used to justify Roe V. Wade.

    And believe it or not, they could do that WAY before September 11th – but lets keep pretending that the government wasn’t already this powerful before that and just keep blaming Bush.

    Sounds like the police leaned on her to bring him back to the States. I’m sure she cooperated in order to spare her own butt.

  11. paris herpes says:

    The littl traitor! Whatever, her boyfriend’s a criminal and deserved to be ratted on, right?

  12. journey says:

    i wanna see a movie with annie slinking around in a trenchcoat, getting evidence against her slimeball boyfriend once she realized he’d scammed money from elderly widows and orphan children, then how she lured him back to the states so justice could be served. the end of the movie would have to have a killer line where she looks him in the eye and sums up all her anger at his having lied to her, and used her and her connections, to steal from people, and her joy at having helped nail him. then she could sashay out of the courtroom with the handsome fbi agent who put the sleaze away. :D

    Never write anything down in a book, a diary, a ledger, a computer, a pocket secretary, a cellphone. Give them nothing. Deny. Deny. Deny.

  14. vdantev says:


    Amendment IX
    (More General Protection for Privacy)
    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    Essentially, just because the protection of privacy in specific circumstances is not enumerated in the Constitution (because there potentially are too many to be listed) does not render them immune to such protection.

    If you disagree, then I’ll be down to your house directly to confiscate whatever paperwork catches my eye. And no- you can’t stop me from doing so, you have no rights of any kind in the matter.

    How humiliating.
