Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox Ex-Boyfriend, Reveals Relationship Details

Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend, broke his years-long media silence in an interview with the Italian newspaper Oggi.

Among the salacious details revealed were insights into the couple's "four years in a circle of hell."

Sollecito and Knox were recently exonerated of the murder of Meredith Kercher, Knox's roommate in Italy. The pair had only been dating for a week when they allegedly discovered 21-year-old Kercher dead in her bedroom. Initially charged with murder and sexual assault, they spent 4 years in an Italian prison before the conviction was overturned earlier this month.

The Daily Mail reports that Sollecito also told Oggi that he and Knox are constantly in contact. He's even planning a visit to her hometown of Seattle as soon as he can.

"We need each other -- we speak to each other on the phone and write to each other every day," he told Oggi. "I will certainly go and see Amanda. She asked me over and I accepted with pleasure and there is no saying I will wait until Christmas. I could go earlier -- I could go at any moment. I really want to see her again, to speak with her and look into her eyes."

Knox arrived home on October 4, 2011, and has kept a relatively low profile despite rumors of book and movie deals.
