Hathaway's Con-Man Ex Blames Anne's Lifestyle

10/15/2008 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In what could go down as the worst persuasive letter ever, Raffaello Follieri's lawyer claims the con man effed up with the law because he was trying to keep up with rich people like his movie star ex-girlfriend Anne Hathaway.
Click to Read
The lawyer for Raffa, who was convicted by the Feds of bilking investors out of millions, explains his actions saying he was -- and we quote -- "surrounded by movie stars and celebrities and this young man who neither drinks nor smokes became intoxicated with it all." And the lawyer actually uses the phrase, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

Really: You gotta read this.

Follieri wants a judge to give him three rather than four years in the clink. His sentencing is Oct. 23.

I don't believe Anne is so innocent either. She knew what he was doing and if he hadn't gotten busted she would still be with him!

Does he only have 4 minutes to save the world ... because that quote "The Road to Hell is Paved with good Intentions," is from Madonna's song...

While this may be how todays society works you still have control over your own actions. He made these choices and to blame Anne for his actions is a sign of a truly weak and cowardly person. She did not insist the Raffa steal moneys from his investers and She did not tell him to lie to her as well as everyone else. Again please remember that he Was telling may lies before Anne came into his life (how do you think He was able to get into Annes social circle anyway). The only real mistakes that Anne made were to fall for this weak minded fool of a man and then when she had figured out that there was somthing not right about him she left the mess for someone else to take care of.
