Hathaway's Ex: Guilty... Guilty... Guilty...Gui..

9/10/2008 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anne Hathaway's ex won't be bothering her anytime soon -- well at least for the next 5 years -- after the dirtball pled guilty to 14 counts of con-artistry just moments ago in a Manhattan Federal court.

Raffaello Follieri will serve at least five years in prison for filching $6 mil while pretending to be the Vatican's chief money man.

But here's the rub -- so to speak -- while entering his plea, Raffa begged the judge to let him out of his NYC holding cell ASAP because of "unspecified inmate issues."

It's hard in prison for those Zach Braff-alikes (pun intended).

UPDATE:
Check out all the Raffa bling Anne H. had to give back to the Feds in the criminal complaint: Two Rolexes, a bunch of rings and a five-strand pearl necklace, among other things.

If that's all he got for stealing 6 million, where do I sign up?

I'll do 5 years in federal prision to make that much money.

I find it hard to believe that Anne Hathaway didn't know about what he was doing. She seems a lot brighter than that.

And he is probably already working on a book deal and seeking money to give an "exclusive" interview. He will do a little time, then come out a "new man" and start a charity, do a PSA, feed the homeless, adopt a black baby, shave his head, get some "tough guy" tattoos, say he got carried away by fame, start a blog, become a special envoy to the UN and all the other things rich crooks/celebs do to rebrand themselves.

It's funny that Anne lived with this guy for four year and didn't know anything. DUH... Who are you kidding? She knew all and just turned the other cheek until he got busted. Anne, you suck!

Well......5 years is a good deal. If he were black and stole that much money he wouldn't be getting out of jail until he was eligible for social security, if then.

She is not as innocent as she proclaims. She cannot be with him that long and be oblivous as to what he was doing. She wanted the high life with all the perks....
