George Soros’ Son Follows in His Footsteps

George Soros’ Son Follows in His Footsteps

 

Robert Soros, 50, the eldest son of billionaire George Soros, is following in his father’s footsteps with scandalous affairs. He allegedly cheated on his wife of 22 years, Melissa Robin Schiff, with Meredith Ostrom, a model and “naked artist,” and is now paying the price with an increasingly messy divorce.

In May, Robert, the deputy chairman and president of the $28 billion Soros Fund Management, filed for divorce from his wife in Manhattan Supreme Court.

According to Page Six, Schiff is discussing their prenuptial agreement in an attempt to get a cut of Robert’s personal fortune. She is arguing that the agreement is “ambiguous,” with hopes of landing potential billions of dollars.

A source told Page Six: “One of the reasons Robert filed for divorce was that he was already seeing Meredith well before their marriage ended. The current battle is over their old and archaic prenup. Many of the provisions in it appear to be ambiguous. Melissa believes she can go after a large portion of his wealth, which could extend to billions of dollars.”

In 1992, Robert married photographer and filmmaker Schiff at Temple Emanu-El in New York. Among the assets of the wealthy estranged couple is a $13 million West 11th Street townhouse, a $9 million Martha’s Vineyard waterfront cottage and a Rhinebeck country home called Enterprise Farm. Robert and Schiff have also donated money to many causes, including Democratic politics, reproductive rights, and the arts.

Robert has been flaunting all the while his much younger blond bombshell Ostrom, 37, who formerly dated Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes. Her recent pursuits have been in the arts, though in the past she worked as a model and an actress. She makes her art using a uniquely explicit technique, behaving more like a porn star than a painter. Ostrom creates her pieces by slathering her naked body in paint, than rolling and flailing across a canvas. On Monday, October 20, the couple was seen together at a black-tie benefit at Denise Rich’s Angel Ball.

Robert inherited his woman woes from his billionaire father George Soros who’s been entangle in his own sexy scandals over the years. This year started out with a love saga starring Soros senior, when an ex-girlfriend filed a lawsuit against him for a broken promise.

The former girlfriend, soap opera actress Adriana Ferreyr, 30, has sued Soros, 83, for “inflicting emotional pain and suffering after breaking a promise to buy her a $1.9 million Upper East Side condominium and giving to his now wife, Tamika Bolton, instead,” the NYDN reported.

The attorneys representing billionaire George Soros want a judge to allow his medical records, depositions and other “confidential” material stemming from his legal battle with his ex-girlfriend to remain sealed, the New York Daily News has reported.

“The nature of the claims ... implicate details of the parties’ personal lives... both (sides)... seek, for example, medical information, personal financial information and information regarding specifics of the parties’ romantic relationships,” Soros' lawyer, Martin Singer, said in court papers filed back in February.

“The distribution of such information could cause the parties unreasonable annoyance and embarrassment and potentially prejudice the parties' business interests, among other things,” he said.

Singer said Ferreyr also demanded information that “impinges on the privacy of third parties — including Ms. Bolton.”

Singer's papers were filed just one day before Bolton was scheduled to be questioned by Ferreyr's attorney in regards to her relationship with Soros, the NYDN reported.

The week before, Ferreyr's lawyer, William Beslow, was reportedly asking Soros questions during a sworn deposition when Ferreyr is said to have burst into the conference room in an attempt to videotape the proceedings.

The ball was thrown back and forth, all the while Singer tried to keep the affairs out of public sight. Singer claimed, Ferreyr threatened to share Soros' deposition with CNN.

Singer says in the new papers filed “that he thought Beslow had agreed to keep confidential a transcript of Soros' deposition and any records produced during the discovery phase,” according to the NYDN. Singer further contends that Beslow had definitely agreed to hold off on ordering a transcript of the deposition until a confidentiality deal had been formalized by the judge.

In the end, all fell under the spot light after news reports about Ferreyr's alleged outburst at the deposition circulated.

Just like daddy, now son Robert Soros is battling a female in court, who is using his philandering ways to get a potential payday.

Soon-to-be ex-wife Melissa is being represented by powerhouse attorney Bernard Clair. While Eleanor B. Alter is Robert’s divorce lawyer. When approached, neither had any comment on the situation.
