We love Anne Hathaway, but we can't stand her ex-boyfriend, Italian
businessman liar and thief Raffaello Follieri.
Well, unfortunately for Anne's shady ex, it's just been reported that Follieri has been hospitalized in New York.
He apparently had to be taken to a hospital for "severe sinus infection" following his court appearance Tuesday on fraud and money laundering charges.
What a wussy!
His rep, Melanie Bonvicino says, "He had an episode in the courtroom which lead to him being transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation."
Maybe it was his guilt getting the best of him!
Bonvicino adds, "I do not have the specifics on what type of treatment at this time but [it's] for a severe sinus infection."
Or, he could have gone to the hospital as a result of the drugs found in his system yesterday.
Just a thought.
His rep continues to say that Follieri has apparently had a sinus infection for the past three weeks.
Could snorting too much cocaine also cause that?
His rep did try to disprove the positive drug tests, saying "He was on a prescription and cough medicine from his doctors that contained codeine before retiring to bed that night. Therefore that is what his doctors told me caused his urine test to be positive."
Follieri is said to be undergoing treatment and in stable condition.
As for his case against him, he still faces a dozen counts. His bail is set for $21 million.
Have fun in jail, you thief!
