The Billionaire financier ‘George Soros’ is being sued for $50 million by his ex-girlfriend who claims he physically abused her and broke a promise to give her a Manhattan apartment. When the billionaire George Soros makes headlines, it’s usually in the business section. But a former soap opera star in Brazil, Ms. Adriana Ferreyr, 28 says that Mr. Soros’s promises about the apartment were more than just pillow talk, and that she invested months looking for a place to call home and hired brokers and designers to help in her hunt.
The details of the bitter opening are to be aired in Manhattan Supreme Court, where Miss Ferreyr yesterday filed her $50 million suit. Adriana Ferreyr, 28, said Soros had twice during the five years they dated promised to buy her apartments, but never followed through, according to her complaint filed on Wednesday in the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan. The pair broke up two months later and soon prepared to accept, but Soros told her as they lay in bed in August 2010 that he had given the apartment to a new girlfriend, the lawsuit said.
