Anne Hathaway's Vati-con Ex Agrees to Pay $3.6M

Yesterday wasn't a good day for the Italian ex-boyfriend of actress Anne Hathaway.

First "Vati-con artist" Raffaello Follieri agreed that he owes more than $3.6 million to those he ripped off in a real-estate scam.  And then it came to light that his Hollywood hottie was gonna dump him even before he was busted.

"It wasn't a huge dramatic breakup," Hathaway told Vogue magazine, as quoted by Page Six. "We were in the process of winding it down when he was arrested."

Federal prosecutors said in New York court papers Monday that Raffaello Follieri has agreed to pay restitution of $2 million to Toronto-based Dundee Realty Corp.

They say he has agreed to pay $813,000 to Yucaipa Corporate Initiatives Fund and $40,000 to an Atlantic City monsignor.

Follieri is serving 4 1/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to cheating investors. Prosecutors say he falsely claimed Vatican connections would let him buy church property cheap.

Follieri's lawyer did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
