Due to a broken leg, George Soros has asked for a delay in giving a deposition in his long-running legal battle with his former Brazilian girlfriend.
The billionaire investor’s lawyers were in court Tuesday to seek a postponement in the case brought by Adriana Ferreyr, the former actress who is suing Soros for $50 million, claiming he reneged on a promise to buy her a $1.9 million apartment on the Upper East Side.
Ferreyr said in her 2011 filing that they dated for five years and she was dumped in 2010. She was 27 at the time and Soros was 80. Ferreyr claims he gave her apartment to another girlfriend, Tamiko Bolton, who is now his third wife.
