Trump: Hathaway's the Con, Not Follieri

The story behind Anne Hathaway's split with recently arrested Italian businessman Raffaello Follieri has everyone buzzing. That includes multi-billion dollar real estate tycoon Donald Trump, who lashed out at the starlet.

"After [his legal troubles] she was gone … and fast!," Trump said in a statement issued by his publicist to ABCNEWS.com. "Sadly, that seems to be the way life works."

The couple, who had been together since 2005, reportedly called it quits just days before the arrest of the Italian businessman and the premiere of Hathaway’s new movie, “Get Smart.” According to The Associated Press, Follieri allegedly spent millions of dollars of investors' money on his posh lifestlye, including an apartment in Trump Towers.

“She hasn’t remained very loyal to him, has she?” Trump added in an interview with Access Hollywood. “So when he had plenty of money, she liked him, but then after that, not as good, right?”

Hathaway’s representative declined to comment. But the actress' latest film, “Get Smart” was the No. 1 movie at the box office the weekend it opened, raking in close to $40 million. She's now busy filming a new flick, “Bride Wars,” with Kate Hudson. Considering her big screen success and the paychecks that come with it, does it really seem like the "Devil Wears Prada" star dated Follieri for three years because of his money?  Or should Trump lay off her because she probably just "got smart?"

What do you think?
