The Tinder Swindler: What To Know About Simon Leviev’s Life After Jail

Published

on

Where is the ‘Tinder Swindler’ now and what’s his life like after jail?

The Netflix documentary, The Tinder Swindler, explains the true story of a man who claimed to be a billionaire named Simon Leviev, the son the of the diamond king.

By posing as a wealthy globetrotter, referring to himself as ‘the prince of diamonds’ and posting a lavish lifestyle online, Simon managed to befriend victims to then later con them out of an estimated $10 million of dollars.

It was uncovered that Simon, formerly known as Shimon Heyada Hayut, was running a Ponzi scheme and would use the money he fraudulently acquired from one victim to pay for the luxurious lifestyle of another.

Now these women are seeking revenge but where is Simon Leviev in 2022?

Simon Leviev is currently living in Israel as a free man.

The documentary tells us that Leviev served just five months of his 15 month prison sentence for the crimes he committed as Shimon Hayut in Israel and that he has never been charged for defrauding the women featured in the documentary.

Cecilie Fjellhoy, Pernilla Sjoholm and Ayleen Charlotte, the three victims featured in the documentary, are still paying off their debts after being professionally conned out of ‘large sums of money’.

The three of them have set up a Go Fund Me fundraiser that has currently raised over £50,000.

They said: “The past few days have been a whirlwind, and we three (Ayleen, Pernilla and Cecilie) have been completely shocked and floored by the flood of compassion and support from everyone.

“The sheer love is more than we ever expected, and we appreciate you all so much.”

Shortly after the release of The Tinder Swindler on Netflix, Simon posted an Instagram story reading: “It’s high time the ladies start saying the truth. If you can’t give them the world, they want they’ll turn yours to hell.

“I will be addressing the whole world on Friday stay tuned and tag others.”

The Instagram account has since been deleted with Leviev claiming it was hacked.

Cecilie, Pernilla and Ayleen all originally connected with Simon via the online dating app Tinder.

Despite the documentary stating since his release Simon has re-joined Tinder, in a statement to Variety they said: “We have conducted internal investigations and can confirm Simon Leviev is no longer active on Tinder under any of his known aliases.”

Before deactivating his account Simon posted videos and images of luxury items such as sports cars and designer purchases.

He has also been seen with a new girlfriend, Israeli model Kate Konlin however the length of their relationship is unknown.

The Tinder Swindler is available to stream via Netflix in the UK.

Doctor Who: David Tennant and Catherine Tate to return

Published

on

David Tennant and Catherine Tate are to return to Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.

The pair are currently filming for the sci-fi show’s 60th anniversary, which it will celebrate in 2023.

Tennant played the 10th Doctor on the time travel drama from 2005-2010, while Tate played companion Donna Noble. Tennant and Tate’s involvement means they will be reunited with returning Doctor Who head writer Russell T Davies.

Davies, who was in charge of Doctor Who when it was successfully revived in 2005, left at the same time as Tennant. Their last episode together was broadcast in 2010.

Tennant has briefly returned before, joining then-Doctor Matt Smith for the programme’s 50th anniversary in 2013.

Davies has teased fans, saying: “Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The only thing I can confirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our greatest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.”

Tennant and Tate’s 2008 series of Doctor Who is the most successful that the show has had since its revival in 2005, with an average audience of more than eight million viewers per episode.

Are you excited to see their return?

Eurovision 2022: How Sam Ryder Turned Things Around For the UK

Published

on

Sam Ryder has said the “stigma” about the UK’s Eurovision performance has finally been “destroyed” after he brought home our best result in 24 years.

The singer led the UK to second place during Saturday night’s Song Contest in Turin, Italy, with his song ‘Space Man’.

It was the the highest the UK has placed since 1998, when Imaani’s ‘Where Are You?’ finished just behind Israel’s Dana International, who won with her song Diva.

In the years since, Britain has suffered a number of embarrassment moments, receiving the dreaded “nul points” in 2003 with Jemini’s ‘Cry Baby’ and in 2021 with James Newman’s ‘Embers’.

However, the public overwhelmingly backed Ukraine, who won the competition with 631 points on the leaderboard, with the UK securing 466 points.

Winning the 2022 Eurovision trophy is a hugely emotional and symbolic victory for Ukraine in the contest’s 66th year as the conflict continues.

The nation’s president Volodymyr Zelensky responded: “Our courage impresses the world, our music conquers Europe.

“We will do our best to one day host the participants and guests of Eurovision in Ukrainian Mariupol. Free, peaceful, rebuilt.”

The results had many fans in sheer disbelief on social media, while prime minister Boris Johnson said he was “incredibly proud” of Sam and how “he brilliantly represented the UK”.

You’re the winner in our eyes Sam, well done!

Eurovision 2022: Sam Ryder Odds Rocket Ahead of Eurovision Final

Published

on

The UK’s Eurovision 2022 entry Sam Ryder has closed in on Ukraine in the winner odds after his performance in the jury semi final.

The TikTok star blew away the audience who flocked to the Pala Olimpico arena in Turin, Italy to see the second jury semi final. The reaction to Sam’s act and his amazing performance have now got plenty of fans and experts predicting he is going to push Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra all the way on Saturday night.

Last week , Sam was sitting in fourth place in the Eurovision odds with his song ‘Space Man’ but, after his second rehearsal in Turin received a rave reaction from press over in Italy and fans and he was given a huge advantage by being drawn in the second half of the Eurovision final, he soared up to second.

The Ukraine currently have a 59% chance of winning and the UK 11%. Sweden and Italy then currently stand as third and fourth favourites at 9% and 6% respectively. Our odds have improved even more so since too as the UK have been announced to perform fourth from last, number 22, which has been the winning performance slot two years in a row.

On May 3 2022 it became exactly 25 years to the day since the UK’s last triumph in Eurovision, when Katrina & the Waves topped the leaderboard in Ireland with their anthemic track Love Shine A Light. Since then, there’s been little to shout about. The UK has always been on the wrong side of the leaderboard, with us consistently finishing at or near the bottom. And last year proved a particularly bitter pill to swallow when James Newman came last on zero points, having received nothing from either the juries or televote.
