Famm would send Billenci “internal emails from his employer marked ‘confidential,” the suit says. Confidential e-mails from the Soros fund, informing her of positions being established by large funds, as well as sending numerous unsolicited text messages. When this didn’t work in winning back Billenci’s favor, Famm turned to getting a restraining order against Billenci “based on lies” the court document says. Famm then called Billenci and left a message. Billenci returned the call, leaving a message for Famm. This message was a violation of the restraining order and Billenci, after numerous court appearances, lost her job.
Billenci is seeking $250,000 in damages.
George Soros had relationship issues in 2013 also
George Soros, Famm’s boss, personal life remains as volatile and on the edge, as previously reported in ValueWalk. The fund manager’s “on again, off again” relationship with girlfriend Adriana Ferreyr turned violent in February, according to court papers and news reports.
Ferreyr, a South American soap actress, “clocked George Soros in the head, knocked the glasses off his California lawyer Martin Singer, cursed his other prominent lawyer William Zabel and even screamed at her own high-powered attorney William Beslow,” according to the media reports and court documents. “A–h–le! You piece of s–t!” Ferreyr, 30, allegedly screamed at Soros, 83, when he passed her in the hallway on the way to the restroom, according to the media report. She was later reported to have slapped a Soros aide, Jose Santos, in the face and kicked him in the shins.
The outburst in court followed Ferreyr dragging a photographer she hired into the court, which has pre-set rules on videotaping, and screaming “I am filming and calling CNN. Everyone!” she said, in what could be interpreted as an apparent attempt to embarrass or influence Soros to negotiate a settlement.
When attorneys for both Ferreyr and Soros agreed that the tape recording in court should not be filmed, Ferreyr was reported to have yelled at her attorney for 20 minutes. Once the proceedings started again, Ferreyr is said to have started to record the action with her camera phone, which drew immediate objections.
According to the report, after lawyers agreed to break for lunch, 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,” Singer was quoted as saying.
