New York foundation run by boyfriend of 'Devil Wears Prada' actress under investigation

The New York state attorney general is investigating a foundation operated by an Italian businessman who is the boyfriend of "The Devil Wears Prada" star Anne Hathaway, a government spokesman said.
The investigation, first reported by the New York Post, involves the Follieri Foundation, a charity whose work includes vaccinating children in Third World countries. Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri, 29, dates the actress.
Matt Glazer, a spokesman for New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, said his office couldn't comment further on an ongoing investigation.
The Follieri Foundation has not filed U.S. tax disclosure forms required from charities, according to a review of records by the Associated Press.
The Post reported that Hathaway was previously on the foundation's board of directors, but it was unclear when or for how long.
Calls to Hathaway's publicists and lawyer were not immediately returned.
The foundation Web site was not operating Monday afternoon and even the Google "cache" _ a snapshot of what had been on the site _ was removed.
The number for a Raffaello Follieri in New York City at a 5th Avenue apartment was disconnected.
