South American actress Adriana Ferreyr reportedly “clocked Soros in the head, knocked the glasses off his California lawyer Martin Singer, cursed at his other prominent lawyer William Zabel and even screamed at her own high powered attorney William Beslow, “according to papers filed Friday by Singer that the NYDN then reported.
Ferreyr, 30, allegedly screamed two choice words of profanity at Soros, 83, when he passed her in the hallway on the way to the restroom. The words began with an A and an S, respectively, according to the NYDN.
The deposition, where Soros was questioned under oath by Ferreyr’s lawyer, had been going on for about two hours “when Ferreyr suddenly appeared with a videographer and demanded that the proceedings be filmed, the latest filings state,” the NYDN wrote about the incident.
Singer said in the court papers that Ferreyr insisted in a loud voice: “I am filming and calling CNN. Everyone!”
NYDN reported that when attorneys to both parties’ agreed that the deposition would not be filmed, Singer claimed that “Ferreyr hit Beslow in the arm and then thumped out of the room, slamming the door.”
Her profanity-laden confrontation with Soros occurred moments later in the hallway, where Soros attorney Singer said that Ferreyr proceeded to yell at Beslow for 20 minutes before everyone returned to the matter at hand – the deposition.
Ferreyr is suing Soros for allegedly breaking his promise to give her a $1.9 million Upper East Side condo. Instead, he gave it to Tamiko Bolton, whom he married last fall, according to the NYDN. A judge has ruled that Ferreyr could press her case against Soros for inflicting emotional distress.
According to the NYDN, when the lawyers agreed to break for lunch, Singer said, 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. 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.”
Singer said he had to pull Ferreyr back to prevent her from stepping on his glasses, at which point he claims she tried to kick him. Then, the NYDN reported Singer as claiming, she slapped a Soros aide, Jose Santos, across the face and kicked Santos in the shins.
The NYDN also reported that Soros attorney Amanda Jawad, submitted papers saying Ferreyr had also screamed at Zabel: “You’re gonna go down, Zabel. You’re gonna go down. You should go to prison and get beat up.”
