The state is investigating the charitable foundation of Anne Hathaway’s boyfriend, a spokesman for the attorney general said Monday.
Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri, 29, who dates the “Devil Wears Prada” star, heads the Follieri Foundation, a charity whose work includes vaccinating children in Third World countries.
New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is heading the probe, Cuomo spokesman Matt Glazer said. He said he could not comment further on the ongoing investigation.
The Foundation has not filed IRS tax disclosure forms required from charities, according to a review of records by the Associated Press.
The New York Post, which first reported the investigation, said Hathaway was previously on the foundation’s board of directors, but it was unclear when or for how long.
“There is an investigation going on that does not involve Anne,” said Stephen Huvane, Hathaway’s publicist, in an e-mail. “She is no longer a board member of the Follieri Foundation. Other than that we will not be commenting.”
The number for a Follieri at his Manhattan apartment was disconnected.
