Raffele appeared on Anderson’s talk show on Thursday to discuss his new tell-all book, Honor Bound: My Journey To Hell And Back With Amanda Knox, which details the harrowing time he and Amanda spent in an Italy jail after her roommate was murdered and the two were charged — but later acquitted and released.
Anderson asked the question many were thinking: “Would you ever date her again?”
“No, no. She’s with another boyfriend and I am going on with my life,” Raffaele said.
“We are really good friends now, but no, no, there is nothing between us now.”
Although the two have remained close and he even revealed earlier this week that he visited Amanda in Seattle earlier this year and that they frequently Skype.
“We skyped yesterday,” Raffaele told Anderson.
“It’s really weird because when I saw her in Seattle in March I just was there for the weekend because I was in Los Angeles and I found it a good opportunity to fly to Seattle just for the weekend. At a certain point during the weekend we were talking about our family, our relationships.
“We just were looking at each other in the eyes and we started to laugh saying, ‘Well, we didn’t really know each other but all the people in the world are talking about us’ and we started to laugh just for that because it’s quite unbelievable.”
And it’s their unbelievable circumstances that Raffaele says has bonded them for life.
“It’s also really weird, there is a really strong bond between us but we don’t know how it happened,” he said.
