Anne H's Ex is Going to Hell ... and Maybe Jail Too

6/24/2008 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good thing Anne Hathaway got real smart and recently cut bait on her Italian BF -- now he's been arrested on federal wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering charges for claiming to be associated with the Pope!

Zach Braff-alike Raffaello Follieri is due in Manhattan Federal court on Tuesday, accused by the FBI of lying to an investor, saying he'd been appointed the chief financial officer of the Vatican. In the Fed's complaint, Anne is mentioned -- not by name, but as RaFo's "girlfriend" -- and as the beneficiary of some of his allegedly ill-gotten gains.

Cops say because people believed his faux Vatican connection, he was able to buy properties owned by the Catholic church in the U.S. at a way cheaper rate.

He actually looks more like David Duchovny.

Other than that, she couldn't BE more boring and he is noteworthy only because of her. Hence, snoooooooooze.

Ann is a beautiful and talented Actress but I think she either needs to lose this looser; or maybe she is not so bright.
All we ever get on this guy is that he is bad news; whey is she so sold on him?

If someone tells me they are the money man behind the Vatican, I'm going to give him the squint-eye and get on the horn checking him out from his loafers to his dandruff shampoo.

Seriously, it's difficult to believe that anyone would actually give someone his age anything more than bubblegum money to invest.
