54 Months!

Finally, a Manhattan judge has decided on a sentence for Anne Hathaway's conniving ex-boyfriend.

A judge punished Raffaello Follieri to 4 and a half years in prison on Thursday.

Guess that's what happens when to try to cheat investors out of millions of dollars by claiming you have false Vatican connections.

Shady and sinful.

Prosecutors added that he used up several millions of dollars from investors for his personal use, such as traveling on private planes, going on luxurious vacations, and even a $37k a month condo in NY.

So, what do U think?

Was his sentence too short or too long?

    TOO SHORT!! like i said yesterday…THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS FUCKED UP!



  2. 2

    poco muy poco este tipo de personas deberian recibir mas tiempo en carcel…… short term this kind of person needs to be punished

    love u perezzzzzzz



  3. 3

    he looks like a douche nozzle. he's definitely getting raped in there. big time! hahah



  4. 4

    He got off easy! John's friends always get off easy. John did. Remember Keating? McCain =Teflon John!



  5. 5

    4 years sure doesn't seem long… maybe he will get to be a "date" for some guy named Tank in person.



  6. 6

    too short! It's going to seem like triple that amount of time to him though -once he's in there and becomes somebody's bitch!! hahaha!



  7. 7

    Too short. He needs to pay restitution for that money. How many years would it take for those investors to make back the money this guy took and misappropriated from them? YEARS.



  8. 8

    I absolutely love your blog, just started following it with bloglovin!



  9. 9

    Longer than I expected. I figured that since he's "famous", he'd get off lucky.

    OHIO FOR OBAMA!!



  10. 10

    I actually feel sorry for him. I think that Anne Hathaway is a gold digger who demanded a certain life style from her hapless boyfriend. He in turn stole money to provide it so as to keep her as his girlfriend. She dropped him like hot coal when he was caught out and has distanced herself well, but I think his jail term must be playing on her conscience - if she has one!



  11. 11

    seems fair to me…I mean Nick Hogan got 6 months for turning a guy into a vegetable, why not throw this guy in jail for 10 years even? I guess he's not celebrity enough to get off with a lighter sentence.



  12. 12

    The investors who took him at his word and didn't investigate his credibility or 'Vactican connection' claims are not such innocent victims in this scenario - after all they gave their money to someone they obviously didn't know much about !!

    Not much sympathy here people!



  13. 13

    This is throwing the book at him? Rich people always get away with it in the US!



  14. 14

    54 months doesn't mean 54 months…i give it a year or 2. but let's pause for a moment and wonder why we are so concerned… there are child molesters who get less time!!!
    so, he got arrogant and stole, totally fucked up, but it's not like he left someone broke or ruined anyone's life. i , personally am much more interested in seeing child molesters get more time. i mean, nick bollea got less time than rafaello follieri…does that even begin to make sense?!?!?! not to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  15. 15

    Well, he didn't KILL anyone, but he seems like a royal pain in the ass and a dishonest SOB, so 4 years is probably pretty decent. Plus, he'll get eaten ALIVE in jail so the 4 years will seem a whole hell of a lot longer!

  16. k-lee says – reply to this


    16

    too short, of course. 4 years? he stole millions! how bout 20 years?



  17. 17

    he's such a douche.



  18. 18

    Pefez have a heart its fine to ask about how people feel about this scumbag but you should only put a pic up of him i am sure that Anne doens't deserve to see a happy pic of them plastered all over the place and if you like her like you say you do then you should be sensitive



  19. 19

    Re: stacestace

    Um - we're not talking about people investing their life savings of $7000 here - we're talking rich people who probably threw money into whatever scheme he was running in the hope of getting big bucks back. Like I said earlier, if they didn't actually investigate the person/business they were forking out their cash to its their mistake. He did break the law, so should do time though.



  20. 20

    i am sure she just LOVES you associating her with him every stinking time you mention him. you could at least cut her outta the picture!



  21. 21

    His crime only gets you 4 1/2 yrs ?? For how many millions? Ummm

    Listen, you don't date a guy for over 4 years and not to, at least a little, what he is up to. Why do you think she lured him back for the FBI? Because she made a deal with them, that if they let her off, then she'll get them back to the States. I have lost all respect for Hathaway. He might be a crook, but how do you sell out someone you professed to love for 4 years?! Because you want to keep your own ass out of prison, thatswhy. I don't get how everyone is treating her like she's this poor injured princess. Perez worshipping her and not even questioning how you can be with a guy and live together for years and then just sell him out to save yourself. Yeah, she's one hell of a classy woman.



  23. 23

    Wasn't MY money so I couldn't care less.



  24. 24

    Start greasing that butt and say hi to the Tossed Salad Man! Bon appetit Dickwad!



  25. 25

    4 years sounds good, he should have to pay the money back though!



  26. 26

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – Are you kidding me? How can you blame Ann?? Give me an F'n break -Did she put a gun to his head? If she's high maintenance then he should look for an equal. Blaming Ann is the most retarded thing I have ever heard! I guess when your boyfriend cheats on you it must be your fault right? Because you didn't put out enough? DUMBASS!!



  27. 27

    And how much time does his gold-digging ex-girlfriend get for being an accessory??? There's no way you can convince me that your precious princess was completely in the dark about what he was doing - had they only been dating a short while, I could buy it. Hathaway is a materialistic designer whore - she probably went into deep denial so she could continue to play at being a member of the jet-set.



  28. 28

    Re: onlyme – You say "I guess when your boyfriend cheats on you it must be your fault right? Because you didn't put out enough?" like that's ludicrous. But that's exactly what Perez believes is the case with Jennifer Aniston. So why isn't it conceivable that Hathaway might have had something to do with this guy's misdeeds? BTW, only dumbasses call people dumbasses for having a different opinion than theirs.

    Re: sugarbaby

    I agree - funny how she dropped him like a hot potato when it became public. If you love someone, you stand by them through thick and thin. Obviously she didn't love him so much - maybe just loved the money and lifestyle huh?? Her career and retaining her Little Miss Perfect image came first. Shame, I used to think she seemed nice. Now I just think she's shallow.



  30. 30

    FOR A SPOILED LITTLE BIATCH LIKE THAT YOU KNOW THAT 4 AND A HALF YEARS IS PLENTY OF TIME. ESPECIALLY ALL THE HEAD AND ASS RIPPING THATS GONNA GO ON IN THERE =]



  31. 31

    I'm always amazed people like this CHOSE to engage in criminal behavior.
    He is intelligent ( attractive to some) and able to speak with a wide range of people.
    If this guy had done the right thing and applied his talents to a legitimate business, he would probably be a successful businessman.



  32. 32

    Re: onlyme – No, not kidding you but I can tell that you have completely missed the point I'm making. I believe Anne knew everything about her boyfriend's criminal activities, she doesn't strike me as the stupid type. Your other silly comments don't dignify a response.



  33. 33

    way way too short…
    the justice system is corrupt…if he was a monority or urban.. or for a smaller crime… he sure would have been given many more years than that.



  34. 34

    Re: sugarbaby – Well said!



  35. 35

    Re: Lulustre – I totally agree with this and wonder why it seems such a controversial viewpoint to others.



  36. 36

    Re: Moniker – i agree with you. and she was very quick to sell him out on letterman and saturday night live. normal people would've still been grieving the ruination of the relationship.

    I don't see how this couple even made it as long as they did… don't get me started.

    TOO SHORT! wtf is up with the law? the douche should get atelast 10 in the slammer!



  39. 39

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – No I did not miss your point, I read your careless thoughts on this site and clearly you have poor judgement. Whether you think she knew about his crimial past or not, which is all speculation anyway, there's no reason to feel sorry for him. He's a crimial that deserves to be behind bars. You feel sorry for this jerk? I guess that just goes to show your low standard of ethics.

    *criminal*

    Re: sugarbaby – When I said "I guess when your boyfriend cheats on you it must be your fault right? Because you didn't put out enough?" That was a rhetorical question dear, please learn to pick up on sarcasm, it'll do you some good. I am not Ann Hathaway, I don't live her life nor do I give a shit about it. I said that she isn't to blame because she's not his mother and he's not a 4 year old. I call a dumbass a dumbass when I see one, they are not difficult to spot- Everyone is entitled to their opinion, however when a dumbass has one, it usually loses credibility they way yours has.



  42. 42

    TOO SHORT!!!!!!!!!!



  43. 43

    To short for real, what an asshole for making anne gor trough all his dramarama



  44. 44

    He probably won't even serve the 5 years in full. He should have gotten way more time. He stole so much, enjoyed life more than most of us can ever dream of, and only gets 5 years. The justice system is wack.



  45. 45

    He was sentenced to 4 years in prison just for stealing money? Wow. Justice for the rich, as usual. I wonder how little time he'd be serving if his offense had been against poor people?



  46. 46

    Re: wanna milk me?? – That's why Perez will never leave her out of the picture, cos without her, this wouldn't be a story. You Suck Perez!



  47. 47

    Pathetic.Not nearly long enough.



  48. 48

    Re: onlyme – What, say's you, what a complete arse you are. Enough said!



  49. 49

    instead of sitting on his fat bum for 4 and 1/2 years living off the taxpayers , he should be sent to do 4 and 1/2 years of social and humanitarian services , like go build houses for the poor in New Orleans .
    Only then will i be sure that he has paid his dues to society
