Billionaire Soros Victim of 'Knockout' Punch by Ex-Girlfriend
In a variation of the nationwide “Knockout Game,” billionaire ultra liberal George Soros’s ex-girlfriend suckerpunched him in the head during a deposition in their palimony law suit.
In a vivid display of profanity, Adriana Ferreyr, a South American soap actress, screamed at the Hungarian- born businessman, calling him an “a--hole!” and a “piece of s--t!” For good measure, she knocked the glasses off his California lawyer Martin Singer, berated his other lawyer William Zabel, and then scorched her own high powered attorney William Beslow with more obscene language, according to papers filed Friday by Singer.
Unlike typical knockout game assailants, Ms. Ferreyr intends to lift some of the victim’s possessions. Ferreyr is suing Soros for $1.9 million, claiming that he promised to gift her with an Upper East Side condo. Instead, Soros, 83, gave the fashionable condo to Tamiko Bolton, 42, whom he married in September. Earlier, a judge ruled that Ferreyr could press her case against Soros for inflicting emotional distress.
During the Tuesday deposition, the spurned lover appeared with a videographer and demanded that the entire deposition be filmed. “I am filming and calling CNN. Everyone!” she exclaimed. According to Singer, at 1 PM, when everyone was breaking for lunch, Ferreyr suddenly and without warning lunged at Mr. Soros and struck his head with her hands, knocking off the headphones he was wearing to amplify the audio in the room. The attorney further explained, "Ms. Ferreyr pulled back her arm to strike Mr. Soros in the face. I was able to grab both of (her) arms to move her away... I let go of her arms. Ms. Ferreyr immediately swung at my face, knocking off my glasses."
Soros, whose net worth Forbes Magazine claims to be $20 billion, may plan on using the troubled ex-girlfriend's video against her in any upcoming proceedings. Singer is requesting that the judge presiding over the case, Debra James, order that Ferreyr take "no action directly or indirectly to destroy, modify, alter or... change the audio, photographic or video recordings taken by her or at her direction" at the deposition.
