Ex suing George Soros living in same building as woman he gave apartment to

The wealthy octogenarian left it to the condo board and doorman to referee between Adriana Ferreyr, the 28-year-old former Brazilian soap star who claims Soros reneged on promises of a $1.9 million apartment, and Tamiko Bolton, 39, the woman to whom he gave it instead.
Things became so testy between the rival women at 30 E. 85th St. -- when the scorned Ferreyr managed to rent another apartment there -- that each accused the other of harassment, according to court papers.
It didn't help that after five years together, including vacations hobnobbing in St. Barts, Ferreyr says Soros broke things off just days after signing the contract on the apartment of her dreams.
The passive-aggressive catfight between the sultry actress and the sexy licensed pharmacist escalated to the point that Bolton began "slandering her to the board of the building, the management company, doormen and lawyers," Ferreyr charges in her lawsuit.
Bolton, who was identified as a partner in Soros Fund Management on the list of attendees at several events around the world, including a UN summit on climate change, could not be reached for comment.
But she never actually worked for Soros and was merely his guest on these jaunts, Soros spokesman Michael Vachon said.
"Tamiko Bolton is not and has never been an employee of SFM," he said.
Sources say she is the octogenarian's frequent "companion," traveling with him to events and meetings in Europe.
Bolton still lives in Apartment 7C, the one Ferreyr says she chose after months of real-estate searching.
She learned of the betrayal only during a brief reconciliation, when Soros -- who today turns 81 -- admitted during pillow talk that he gave it to his new gal pal.
At that point, according to the lawsuit, the two argued, and when things escalated she claims Soros slapped her across the face and tried to bash her with a lamp.
Soros to marry again at 82

Billionaire George Soros is to marry again at age 82 after getting engaged to girlfriend Tamiko Bolton, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
The legendary investor — the seventh-richest person in America, worth $22 billion according to Forbes — announced to close friends and family last night that he’s engaged to the 40-year-old businesswoman as he celebrated his 82nd birthday at his Hamptons home.
A source told Page Six, “George planned a surprise announcement to his assembled friends and family at his birthday party last night. He told them he and Tamiko are engaged and plan to marry next summer in Southampton.” Guests at the party included Blackstone’s Byron Wien and the mogul’s son Alexander Soros.
Sources tell us the couple met at a lunch in New York in 2008, and, “Their relationship has developed over time.” While they have mainly kept a low profile as a couple, the hedge-fund titan recently stepped out with her in public in May at a Paley Center screening of “The Untouchables.”
We’re told George proposed to Tamiko on a recent weekend in the garden of his Southampton home. Sources say he presented her with a Graff ring, a brilliant-cut diamond in platinum setting on a rose-gold band with rare pink pave diamonds.
Tamiko, the daughter of a Japanese-American nurse and a retired naval commander, grew up in California. The attractive brunette has an MBA from the University of Miami and works as a consultant in health care and education. She started an Internet-based dietary supplement and vitamin-sales company and, more recently, a Web-based yoga-education platform.
Dad-of-five George has been married and divorced twice. He wed Annaliese Witschak in 1960, and they had three children before divorcing in 1983, when he wed Susan Weber Soros, 25 years his junior. They had two children and divorced in 2005.
When asked if there is a pre-nup, Soros’ attorney William D. Zabel said: “It is well known that Mr. Soros will leave the bulk of his estate to charity but he intends to provide generously for his wife.”
