Tinder Swindler's Manager Says Simon Leviev Has Evidence That Proves He's Innocent
| Last updated
Unless you've managed to avoid social media over the past couple of weeks, which is unlikely, you will know all about The Tinder Swindler.
The Netflix documentary delved into the complex web of lies weaved by Simon Leviev, who stole millions from countless unsuspecting women.
It centres on three women who were all tricked into handing over hundreds of thousands of pounds to fund his lavish lifestyle and help him con more women into falling for him.
Since the film landed, it has become a smash hit, with people in utter disbelief as to how Leviev - real name Shimon Hayut - was able to get away with his crimes for so many years.
But according to Leviev's new manager, the whole story hasn't yet been told.
Speaking to LADbible, Gina Rodriguez said her client has 'evidence' that will prove he is innocent.
She told us: "He looks forward to clearing his name and sharing his side."
Ms Rodriguez said that she signed him on 14 February - Valentine's Day - after having watched the documentary, which she felt didn't explain everything.
She said: "I watched the Netflix documentary on 13 February and I was intrigued with the story but I had a lot of unanswered questions.
"I was curious as to what Simon's side of the story was since it was not featured in the show.
"So I searched for him on Instagram and I found his profile and messaged him. He did not reply until Monday 14 February."
Ms Rodriguez also revealed that Leviev is now looking at opportunities to use his newfound fame to make a name for himself in Hollywood.
And she said that there were already talks ongoing to get him on the big screen.
She said: "We are currently in talks for several projects - television and movies."
Ms Rodriguez confirmed that Simon is discussing the idea of 'hosting a dating show' and that there had been 'a lot of interest' from film studios about working with him.
But while Simon looks to advance his career in the States, his victims are still looking to recoup some of their losses.
A GoFundMe page set up by Cecilie Fjellhøy, Pernilla Sjoholm and Ayleen Charlotte has reached over £140,000 ($190,000).
The trio set up the page with the goal of making £600,000 ($816,000), having lost thousands to Leviev.
The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
