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.
