Hathaway Involvement In Ex-boyfriend's Fraud Case Dismissed By Friend

LATEST: A friend of ANNE HATHAWAY's ex-boyfriend RAFFAELLO FOLLIERI has hit out at claims the actress had any involvement in the Italian businessman's allegedly fraudulent dealings.
The Devil Wears Prada star was accused by friends of the Italian businessman last week (begs23Jun08) of turning her former flame in to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The pair split last month (Jun08), shortly before he was arrested on suspicion of fraud.
Among allegations of money laundering, Follieri has been accused of lying to an investor, claiming he was working as the chief financial officer for the Vatican.
According to the New York Daily News, Atlantic City priest William Hodge - who befriended Follieri during a proposed business deal in 2006 - told clerics Hathaway "had nothing to do with Follieri's plot".
Hodge has also denied allegations he accepted money in the alleged Follieri deal to extract $6 million (GBP3 million) from investors.
Follieri, 30, remains behind bars until he can post $21 million (GBP10.5million) bail.
A status hearing for Follieri has been set for next week (09Jul08).
