Anne Hathaway's Criminal Ex Set To Be Released From Prison…And Deported!

Raffaello Follieri free prison deportation

Wow! We can't believe it's already been this long!

You may recall that before Anne Hathaway became involved with Adam Shulman in 2008, she dated Raffaello Follieri, the con-man who was arrested on fraud charges after stealing millions from investors in a scheme in which he posed as the Vatican's point man on real estate!

Remember? Although poor girl wasn't charged, she had her own journals confiscated by the FBI during the investigation, and even had to give back jewelry he had given her as gifts!

Vatican Bank Under Investigation For Money Laundering!

Italian authorities have seized over $30 million from a Vatican bank account as a precautionary measure, while they investigate top officials, including chairman Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, in the bank for suspected money laundering!

The Vatican responded this morning by standing behind Tedeschi, and released the following statement:

"The Holy see is perplexed and surprised by the initiatives of the Rome prosecutors, considering the data necessary is already available at the Bank of Italy."

According to reports, authorities began scrutinizing the Vatican after their bank never informed them over where a large sum of money came from. A bulk of the money seized was allegedly set to be transferred for JP Morgan in Germany, while the remainder was going to Banca del Fucino.

Shady shady.

But is anyone really surprised?
