Adriana Ferreyr (born May 18, 1983 in Brazil) is a Brazilian actress best known in Brazil for her performance in Marisol, a 2002 Brazilian television series, and in the United States for her ongoing 2011 lawsuit against billionaire George Soros.
Early life and education
While taking classes at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Ferreyr continued to pursue an acting career and, after two years, landed a role as a lead character in the prime time Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão soap opera Marisol (2002), playing Vanessa Lima do Vale, Marisol's adopted daughter.
Ferreyr previously dated George Soros for 5 years non-exclusively. On August 10, 2011, Ferreyr filed a $50 million lawsuit against Soros for fraud, harassment, emotional distress, estoppel and assault and battery. In 2011 Soros tried to dismiss the lawsuit and was unsuccessful. In March 2013, Soros sued Ferreyr for defamation and assault. During depositions on February 4, 2014, she allegedly assaulted Soros and his attorney for refusing to videotape the proceedings.
On April 1, 2014, Soros won a partial dismissal of Ferreyr's lawsuit; the appellate court, in a unanimous decision, dismissed her claims of fraud, infliction of emotional distress and other claims against Soros. The appellate court didn't dismiss Ferreyr's claim of assault and battery, however.
In April 2014, Ferreyr sued her former lawyer William Beslow. She is on her third set of lawyers, Javier A. Solano and Michael P. Kushner.
