Who Are Simon Leviev’s Children?

Who Are Simon Leviev’s Children?

Fans of The Tinder Swindler want to know whether Simon Leviev has any children, following his serial-dating past.

Following the epic release of the true-crime documentary The Tinder Swindler on Netflix, viewers of the show want to know whether Simon Leviev has any children, following his serial-dating past.

The documentary showcases “a group of women who were the victims of a dating app based swindler join together in an attempt to hunt him down and recover the millions of dollars that were stolen from them”, according to the series’ synopsis. So, who are Simon Leviev’s children?

Does Simon Leviev have a daughter?

If you cast your mind back, you might recall Simon Leviev’s “daughter” and “baby mama” in Tinder Swindler being mentioned.

In short, no, Simon Leviev does not have a daughter.

Leviev, born Shimon Yehuda Hayut, reportedly told one of his “girlfriends” Cecilie Fjellhøy about his family past, telling her about a supposed daughter.

In the documentary, Fjellhøy admitted feeling emotional when Hayut told her about his child as it proved him to be a proud father and a good man. 

It then came to light that Hayut’s “baby mama” and “daughter” were fabricated as part of a plan to trick Fjellhøy into trusting him. 

Hayut’s false identity of Leviev made him a well-off jetsetter and the son of Israeli businessman, Lev Leviev.

One of Lev’s children, Chagit Leviev Sofiev, is the President of the Leviev Group USA. She is also the CEO for Africa Israel USA, managing their US real estate operations.

Her husband, Greg Sofiev, is the CEO of LLD Diamond USA.
