Anna “Delvey” Sorokin (31) is back! The Russian-born German impostor, who posed as a rich heiress in New York high society between 2013 and 2017 and thus cheated herself into a luxurious existence, plans to bring her life to television.
Already in early 2022, the story of “Anna Delvey”, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, became known to millions of viewers through the Netflix show “Inventing Anna”. But now the scammer, who continues to fight against her deportation, prefers to benefit from her celebrity herself and is planning a reality show, as her lawyer Duncan Levin now says in an interview with the New York Post: “The show is supposed to show Anna’s talent as a Put the artist and designer in the foreground. The concept for the show is already in development,” says Levin.
Sorokin has not yet found a production company that wants to finance the project, which has something to do with his client’s poor image, Levin is certain: “Everyone knows her story and immediately has an opinion about her. But Anna wants to fight her way out and deserves a chance to get rid of her fraudulent image, »said the lawyer.
house arrest and shackles
In October 2022, Anna “Delvey” Sorokin was allowed to leave the detention center where she had been since March 2021. Since then she has been under house arrest and under strict conditions. Pending the immigration court’s final decision on her status, she wears an ankle bracelet emblazoned with her sparkling initials.
Before Anna Sorokin’s plans for a reality show can be realized, important legal decisions have to be made: Sorokin wants to appeal the judgment of a New York court, which sentenced her to twelve years in prison in 2019 for grand theft. “I will ensure that Anna is declared innocent,” says lawyer Duncan Levin. “After that we will get the immigration court not to deport them!”
