George Soros attacked by ex-girlfriend during deposition
Question of the Day
The former girlfriend of George Soros reportedly became so incensed at the billionaire during a recent private deposition that she took a swing at his head while screaming obscenities.
Adriana Ferreyr, 30, a soap star from South America, hit him right in the head, while knocking the glasses off the head of one of his attorneys and cursing at another, the New York Daily News reported.
She also turned her tantrum toward her own attorney, shouting obscenities at him, the paper reported.
Court documents indicate that Mr. Soros was under oath and answering questions during Tuesday’s deposition when Ms. Ferreyr jumped into the mix with a videographer, vowing to record the proceedings and get CNN involved, the Daily News reported.
“I am filming and calling CNN. Everyone,” she reportedly said.
When she was told to stop filming, Ms. Ferreyr lashed out at her attorney and stormed from the room. She then passed Mr. Soros in the hallway, confronted him and then returned to the conference room to continue the deposition.
As the lawyers attempted to break for lunch, Ms. Ferreyr “suddenly and without warning … lunged at Mr. Soros — who is 83 years old — and struck his head with her hands, knocking off the headphones he was wearing to amplify the audio in the room. Ms. Ferreyr pulled back her arm to strike Mr. Soros in the face,” the Daily News reported.
One of the attorneys was able to halt that hit.
