Anne Hathaway's ex freed from jail

Loretto - An Italian ex-boyfriend of actress Anne Hathaway has been released from a federal prison following a real-estate scam.

Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesperson Chris Burke says Raffaello Follieri was released on Friday morning from a prison in Loretto, 129km east of Pittsburgh. He says non-US residents are usually transferred to immigration authorities.

Follieri pleaded guilty to cheating investors by falsely claiming he had Vatican connections that enabled him to buy church property at a discount. He was sentenced in 2008 to four-and-a-half years in prison.

Follieri agrees he owes more than $3.6m to those he ripped off. The proceeds supported a playboy lifestyle that included a $37 000-a-month New York City apartment and lavish vacations with the star of The Princess Diaries.

They dated for four years.
