George Soros was struck in the face by former mistress Adriana Ferreyr during a Manhattan court appearance on Friday, the New York Post reports. 

According to court papers filed by Soros's attorney Martin Singer, the 83-year-old left-wing billionaire was struck in the head by Ferreyr, knocking off the earphones he was wearing to aid his hearing of the proceedings. As Ferreyr pulled back her arm to take a second jab at Soros, Singer grabbed her. She then struck the lawyer knocking off his eyeglasses.

The parties were in New York State Supreme Court for a hearing involving a 2011 law suit filed by Ferreyr against Soros alleging that he reneged on a promise to give a luxury apartment valued at $1.9 million on Manhattan's Upper East Side, according to the Post.

Ferreyr, now 30, is a Brazilian-American soap opera actress living in New York City. She claims Soros inflicted emotional distress on her when he broke his promise about the apartment. Soros has said his 2005-2010 relationship with Ferreyr was "on-again, off-again and non-exclusive," according to Dealbreaker.

Before allegedly taking a punch at Soros, Singer related that she cursed him, Soros's other lawyer William Zabel, and her own attorney William Beslow.

The apartment in question is now the property of Tamiko Bolton, a 42-year-old consultant, whom he married in September, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Ferreyr showed up at the courthouse accompanied by a cameraman who taped the proceedings. Singer quotes her as saying "I am filming and calling CNN. Everyone!"

The lawyer asked Justice Debra James to order Ferreyr to preserve the video taken at the deposition as possible evidence.
