Boyfriend of American Actress Owes $3.6 Million

NEW YORK (AP) - The Italian ex-boyfriend of actress Anne Hathaway has agreed he owes more than $3.6 million to those he ripped off in a real-estate scam.

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 4½ 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.
