Anne Hathaway’s boyfriend Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri is under investigation again. The state attorney general Andrew Andrew Cuomo is looking into Raffaello’s charity foundation after learning it’s not properly disclosing tax information, according to the New York Post:
Confirmation of the probe came after Cuomo’s office was asked whether it was aware that the foundation might have failed to file tax-disclosure forms required of nonprofit groups. A check of an online database that collects the “990″ IRS forms showed that the Follieri Foundation is required to file the form, yet has never done so.
Anna Hathaway at one point served on the board of directors for the foundation. When asked about the investigation, her rep didn’t even know when Anne suddenly stopped bing a member:
“She was on the board, but is no longer,” Hathaway’s spokesman said. “I don’t remember exactly when she ceased to be a board member.”
Asked whether Hathaway, 25, knew about the probe and its focus, he said, “Since she is no longer associated with the foundation, why would you expect her to be familiar with all of this?”
I’ve got this Raffaelo Follieri guy all figured out. He’s a rich Italian who likes to wear nice suits and is always caught not paying his taxes. C’mon, I’ve seen The Sopranos, and it’s pretty obvious what’s going on: He’s a Republican.
