Billionaire George Soros is facing a $50 million lawsuit from his ex-girlfriend, who alleges that he offered her an apartment and never came through. Adriana Ferreyr, a Brazilian soap opera star, says Soros signed the contract for a $1.9 million Upper East Side apartment, but then gave it to another woman. As they argued about it in bed, "Soros slapped Ferreyr across the face and proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her," according to the papers. A lawyer for the 80-year-old financier called the suit "frivolous and entirely without merit" and clarified that the time Soros spent with the 28-year-old actress was an "on-again, off-again and non-exclusive relationship." Still, she said, he later apologized and upped his offer to a $4.3 million apartment. Now those broken promises have accrued interest, apparently. "It's 1/7000th of his wealth," said the woman's attorney. "She just wants what he promised her."
