Adriana Ferreyr

From 2006-2011, former soap opera star Adriana Ferreyr was the “on-again, off-again” girlfriend of hedge fund manager George Soros. As the story goes, toward the end of their relationship, Soros promised Ferreyr her “dream” apartment on East 85th Street, broke up with her a day after the place went into contract, texted her “what are you up to?”1 one night a few weeks later, and then, after going over to her place to “reconcile,” whispered in her ear that he’d given her apartment away to another woman (who would later become his wife). Since then, Ferreyr has demonstrated time and time again that she’s packing a serious pair, but no more so than today. Before we get into that, though, a brief recap of Ferrey’rs balls in action:

So, she’s obviously holding out for a lot more than $1 million, but how much? The dream apartment was worth $1.9 million, would that do the trick? $2 million? $3 million? A nice round five? Apparently the answer is none of the above. Read more »

When one becomes a multi-billionaire, there are a few questions he or she has to ask him or herself. The first is, will I still eat my food with my own two hands or will I have someone cut it and feed it to me? Will I put my pants on myself each morning, or would it be nice to be have someone dress me, French aristocracy-style? Will I walk around like I did before becoming a man or woman of immense wealth, or will I be carried, leaving my legs to be simply ornamental? The most important question, though, is this: in the hypothetical event that I sleep with a woman on and off for five years, promise her a “dream apartment” and subsequently inform her, moments after accidentally sleeping with her one last time, that I gave it to another woman, setting off a chain of events in which names are called, lamps are thrown, and all out wars are waged, will I at some point relent and give her what she wants or will I never, and I mean ever, back down, not even after she beats the shit out of me and my staff during a deposition more than two years after this debacle began? For George Soros, the answer to that question was apparently, “BRING IT, BITCH.” Read more »

George Soros will be the first to be quizzed by lawyers in his battle with former mistress Adriana Ferreyr, a judge ruled yesterday. The billionaire will be deposed by the end of July. Also to be quizzed is Soros’ new fiancée, Tamiko Bolton, on Sept. 27 — which could interfere with their planned fall wedding. While Soros didn’t attend the Manhattan hearing, Ferreyr sat with her attorney William Beslow and stared down Soros’ counsel Gary Stein. Ferreyr is suing Soros for $50 million, claiming he promised her a $1.9 million apartment but gave it to Bolton. [NYP, earlier]

As you may have heard, over the weekend George Soros announced the happy news that in the not too distant future, he’ll be a bridegroom again for the third time. The lucky lady is Tamiko Bolton and if that name sounds familiar, it’s because we were introduced to her last year* when Soros was sued by Adrianna Ferreyr, a woman with whom he’d had a five year “on-again, off-again non-exclusive” relationship during which he’d promised her a “dream apartment” on East 85th Street, reneged on the deal when they broke up, and then, while they “briefly reconciled for one romantic night together,” whispered in her ear that he’d given her dream house to another gal-pal, i.e. Bolton. Ferreyr did not respond very well to the admission, Soros supposedly threw a lamp at her, and the two have spent the last year in and out of court as one person has made the claim that she’s owed not only a dream apartment but $50 million for broken promises as well and the other person has made the claim that someone is crazy.

Anyway, Ferreyr also heard about the engagement and despite the ongoing legal dispute with George (and the fact that, separately, she and Bolton have both accused each other of harassment) is really happy for the couple, though anyone thinking the East 85th Street business is now water under the bridge can think again.

2005-2010: George Soros has a relationship of debatable seriousness depending on who you ask with a woman named Adriana Ferreyr. (According to Ferreyr, it was a “serious and meaningful relationship,” while according to Soros, things were “on-again, off-again and non-exclusive.”) Ferrreyr is promised her “dream apartment” on East 85th Street.

Summer 2010: Several days after the contract on the apartment is signed, Soros “heartlessly dumps” Ferreyr, which means no dream apartment for her.

Approximately a week later: The duo “briefly reconcile for a romantic night together.”

A few hours later: Soros “whispers in Ferreyr’s ear” that another woman, Tamikoa Bolton, is living in her apartment. Ferreyr expresses strong displeasure at this revelation. Soros supposedly slaps Ferreyr across the face and attempts “to strike her with a glass lamp, narrowly missing.”

August 2011: Ferreyr demands $50 million for broken promises re: dream apartments, makes allegations re: lamps.

Later in August 2011: Soros strongly denies accusations, refuses to pay Ferreyr a dime.

February 2012: Soros offers to settle for $250,000, Ferreyr refuses, a court date is set for early May.

April 30, 2012: OH NO, HE DI’INT: Read more »

George Soros offered to pay his Brazilian bombshell ex-lover Adriana Ferreyr $1 million to settle her grievances after she accused him of backing out of a promise to buy her an Upper East Side apartment. But furious Ferreyr turned down the lump sum, insisting she is determined to sue billionaire Soros for up to $50 million after he promised to buy her a dream, $1.9 million East 85th Street pad, then instead gave it to his new girlfriend, Tamiko Bolton, who — according to Ferreyr — he’d claimed was his nurse…Sources said Ferreyr’s latest compromise offer is $35 million plus the apartment, which is currently still occupied by Bolton.

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.
