Now she claims he promised her an apartment.

Ferreyr claims Soros had promised to give her an Upper East Side apartment worth $1.9 million. In a recent romantic reunion, Soros allegedly whispered to her that he had given the apartment to another woman.

Soros closed his hedge fund last week. Was it because of the lawsuit or the economy?
