Remember Adriana Ferreyr? To recap, she’s a woman with whom George Soros either conducted “a serious meaningful relationship” that lasted five years or had an “on-again, off-again and non-exclusive intimate relationship,” depending on who you ask. Last August, Ferreyr sued the billionaire for $50 million based on the promise he allegedly made to buy her a “dream home” at 30 East 85th Street, before “heartlessly” dumping her a few days after the contract was signed. Ferreyr was pretty pissed about the situation but, as these things go, the duo “briefly reconciled for a romantic night together” during which Jorge supposedly had the Soroses to “whisper in her ear” that he’d given the keys to her dream house to another one of his gal-pals. Adriana also claimed that after she aired her displeasure with Soros’ decision to give away her apartment, he slapped her across the face and ”proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her…then allegedly tempted to strike her with a glass lamp narrowly missing though cutting her foot.” From the beginning, Soros’s lawyers have denied almost all of Ferreyr’s account, from the characterization of their relationship to the bit about him assaulting her with his hands and furniture. They did admit that there was a promise of an apartment but 1) the couple broke up so no deal and 2) the way they see it, Ferreyr’s “baseless” lawsuit  is simply the manifestation of her “disappointment that Soros moved onto other women.”

Now, one would think Soros would want all of this to go away, as, true or not, most individuals prefer not to be publicly accused of pelting people with lamps, etc. And yet today we were given a hint that GS is actually enjoying all this and, on the contrary, doesn’t want it to go away quietly but rather get real bad, real fast, as evidenced by his attorneys’ latest statement.

Billionaire George Soros is trying to toss out a lawsuit from an ex-girlfriend who claims he reneged on a promise to buy her a $1.9 million apartment and assaulted her when they were in bed discussing his supposed betrayal. Lawyers for Soros are filing papers today in Manhattan Supreme Court, blasting Adriana Ferreyr’s “fog of overheated rhetoric” and her claim that Soros “promised to give her, for free, a multimillion dollar luxury apartment” but got “upset after she and Soros ended their relationship.

Accusing someone who’s already in a delicate place of being “overheated”? Not  the best course of action! Team Soros basically just told a riled up person to “calm down,” i.e. throwing a lit match into a tub of gasoline. He’s about to feel the full fury of a “on-again, off-again non-exclusive intimate relationship in which dream apartments were promised and never delivered” scorned.

    The whole thing is completely overblown. GS was probably just following up a friendly game of just the tip with a riddle..what did the five fingers say to the face?

    Why is she complaining? she got to date that hot piece of ass. Can you imagine George in a speedo on a beach in the south of France. She got a deal!

    Is my sense of humor really that hard to get? Who didn't laugh we I pulled that wacky gag on the Bank of England?

    The apartment part is a slam dunk – promise is unenforceable because contracts involving real estate must be written. Also, there was no consideration (of the legal kind anyway). The assault claims might have to go to a jury, though.

    That baby WAS foggy and overheated…like the windows of my Traction Avant in the ardennes in 1948.

    GS: What are you wearing?
    AF: A loose white dress.
    GS: Let's see…I'll go with these casual white slacks, dark brown loafers, and…
    AF: Why not wear that dark purple paisley shirt with the tags still attached that I bought you last <interrupted by sound of shattering glass>
    GS: Must've slipped. So that purple shirt?

    It's probably George's lawyer who wants to drag this out, not George.

    Is there any angry reuniting sex with an unstable chick in it for the lawyer? That's what I thought.

    Legal fees, legal fees and more legal fees. Try asking your lawyer for a flat rate (That's how I do it).
    Then when your lawyer mouths off and complicates your case, he just creates more work for himself.

    As we know, Bess is a genius.

    She may also be the reincarnation of the great PG Wodehouse. Who else would’ve written “true or not, most people prefer not to be publicly accused of pelting people with lamps, etc.”? Surely, Bertie Wooster would agree.

    I'm most curious about the head/foot placement of said scorned on-again, off-again girlfriend. If they were in bed, how was he so close to her face and ended up injuring her foot with the lamp?

    I'm assuming his Twister-branded sheets, but I can't be sure.

    Sure, you get a multi million dollar pad, but how are you going to pay for the upkeep? The property taxes? Something tells me this girl hasn't through things through.

    You guys want to know the truth? It is that this broad forgets to return the favor when I give her the signature move. I call it the Hungarian Ham Whistle. She like, so she ask for apartment…. How little does she know about Reflexivity, George Soros gives everyone apartment ;)

    It's clear that he (allegedly) choked her when they were laying in bed, then jumped up out of it, he turned and grabbed a lamp from the nightstand and threw it at her foot.

    “disappointment that Soros moved onto other women.”

    Pretty sure he means, "on to"… Actually, nevermind.

    She might try a promissory estoppel theory which, although unlikely, could get around your concerns.

    I came here to beg Bess to never link to that face while using the phrase "move onto other women" again. Shudder.

    Think of the children (and the children's table).

    Pretty sure since we're talking about his (apparently thriving) sex life, "onto" was exactly what he meant.

    much as I enjoy your ongoing commentary on Soros' antics, can I suggest we change the picture?
