Amanda Knox has stayed away from TV cameras since returning from Italy, but her dad hasn’t been shy.
Curt Knox is answering all kinds of questions about his now-exonerated daughter. He won’t say where she’s hiding out, but he did say she wants to go back to college. He gave a “no comment” to questions about whether Donald Trump is bank-rolling Amanda’s legal and P.R. needs.
But Knox had plenty to say about one BIG question…Will Amanda reunite with her Italian boyfriend and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito now that they’re both free? And what about the boyfriend she left behind, now that she’s back home?
Knox confirmed to CNN’s Erin Burnett that the family has issued Raffaele and his whole family a standing invitation to come visit any time. “Rafaelle is going through the same thing Amanda is right now and really needs to get reconnected.” Knox said, “I think at some point they may come over, and that would be nice to see.” He also said Amanda and Raffaele communicated while they were both in jailed for the murder of her housemate Meredith Kercher.
So what about the boy-next-door back in Seattle? Dad confirmed that Amanda was reunited with the boyfriend had when she when she went to Italy, David Johnsrud.
“She has been around DJ,” Knox’s father told the New York Post. He said the two were glad to see each other, but that it’s too early to know what’s ahead. DJ visited Amanda while she was behind bars in Italy, and the Post says the two stayed in touch with letters and phone calls as well.
So does Raffaele want to see Amanda? When asked by an Italian news agency, Raffaele said "Amanda? Maybe I'll see her again, but now I only want to be with my family." The International Business Times says he’s at his father's gated villa in southern Italy, readjusting to life. "He's like a baby growing up that has to learn to get used to life," Francesco Sollecito said.
