George Soros 81 offered to pay his ex-lover Adriana Ferreyr $1 million to settle her case after backing out of a promise to buy her an Upper East Side apartment.
But furious Ferreyr turned down the lump sum, insisting she is going to sue billionaire for $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.
The warring pair head in to court again April 17, with Soros demanding a judge throw out her case against him.
Ferreyr’s lawyer, Robert Hantman, declined to comment on any settlement but told us: “We have an excellent judge [Debra James] and we are confident the law is on our side. I feel we have an excellent chance of beating this motion to dismiss. Miss Ferreyr will have her day in court.”
Soros, has characterized former child actress Ferreyr, 28, as trying to cash in on their five-year relationship, which ended in 2010.
But Hantman says in court papers, “The only thing odious and unseemly about this case, aside from the defendant’s actions, is the false and extremely inflammatory and chauvinistic rhetoric suggesting that Ferreyr’s complaint is a ‘quest to cash in on their casual relationship’ or a seeking of the ‘benefits of wealth.’ ”
Sources tell us the situation has caused Ferreyr so much emotional distress that she’s dramatically lost weight. A friend told, “This isn’t about money, this is about his disrespectful behavior.”
Soros’ lawyer, William Zabel, declined to comment on the figure offered, but said, “There was a first settlement offered before she filed the complaint.”
