Hedgefund mogul George Soros’ former mistress claims he brutally attacked her.
Hedge fund legend – and noted supporter of radical left-wing causes – George Soros is fighting back in the legal tussle with his ex-mistress Adriana Ferreyr, countersuing her for defamation and assault, and alleging she threw a glass lamp at him during a heated squabble.

Soros’ lawyers filed their response to the Brazilian bombshell’s $50 million suit in 2011, which claimed he promised her a $2 million apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side but instead gave it to his now-fiancée Tamiko Bolton.

Soros’ papers state, “Soros and Ferreyr . . . engaged in a physically intimate relationship over the course of several years. [They] continued to date other people. [At the time of the alleged assault in 2010] Soros was approximately 80 years old, and Ferreyr was approx. 27 years old.”

Soros’ suit claims the fight started when “Ferreyr asked Soros about the status of the apartment . . . Soros informed her that another woman with whom he had a relationship was living in Apt. 7C, and that the other woman was very happy living there.”

“Ferreyr became enraged, picked up a nearby lamp that was made partly of glass, and knowingly, intentionally, and wilfully attempted to strike Soros with it,” his suit claims. “The lamp struck Soros’ forearm, then fell to the floor and broke . . . Soros did not hit Ferreyr . . . Ferreyr stood up and cut her foot on one or more of the shards of glass.”

Police were called and, according to the court papers, “Ferreyr made false statements to the police . . . [by claiming] ‘Soros with an open hand smacked her on the right side of the face.’ ”

Soros’ assault and battery suit claims she struck him “with the lamp in an effort to harm him.”

He’s also suing for defamation, claiming her statement that he “hit her in the face” was false.

Soros’ lawyer William Zabel said, “This is the first time that we have had an opportunity to respond formally to Ms. Ferreyr’s false claims and to make our own counterclaims to hold her accountable for the harm her malicious assertions have caused Mr. Soros.” Ferreyr’s lawyer William Beslow declined to comment.

On Forbes’ recent annual ranking of the world’s billionaires, Soros came in at No. 30 with a net worth of $19.2 billion (he is also the 16th richest person in the United States). Soros has given away $8 billion to various causes since 1979.
