This isn't the sort of big house that Raffaello Follieri had in mind.
Disgruntled with his new living conditions, Anne Hathaway's recently imprisoned ex-boyfriend has already put in for a change of scene.
"He says that he cannot eat because the food appears to be spoiled and that the toilet and shower facilities are unspeakably unsanitary," attorney Flora Edwards wrote in a letter to the court, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters.
Follieri is running a fever and has blood in his urine, the letter continued.
"There is excrement in the shower and rats are roaming freely in the area. He says the stench is intolerable and his health is deterioriating."
Follieri, who has yet to find out where he's going to ride out his four-and-a-half-year prison sentence for wire fraud and money laundering, is currently housed in a windowless dormitory with 120 other men in a New York jail, according to Edwards.
The former jet-setter, not due in court again until Dec. 12, is looking to spend the rest of his interim jail time somewhere else.
Follieri's plea for leniency fell on deaf ears, and the 30-year-old businessman was sentenced Oct. 23 after pleading guilty to 14 criminal counts—the deal saving him from spending the rest of his life behind bars.
