By now, few people haven’t binge-watched Inventing Anna , which only dropped on Netflix in mid-February. We all know how, from 2013 to 2017, Anna Sorokin (aka Anna Delvey) infiltrated elite circles in New York City and, over a 10-month period, scammed contacts out of US$275,000 after claiming she was expecting to inherit US$67 million. So where is Sorokin now? Will she stay in the US? Has she paid back her debts? Here’s the latest on the fake heiress that has the online universe buzzing. What’s going on with Melania Trump?

Court documents show Netflix paid Sorokin US$320,000 for the rights to her story.

The relief was granted to help cover fees related to her appeal and other legal costs.

He argued that Sorokin would “not be a burden to the State as she has very lucrative contracts with Netflix and other well established media groups”.
