Anna Sorkin, the fake German heiress who scammed hundreds of thousands from banks under the name Anna Delvey, has sold the rights to tell her story to Netflix for $320,000.

After restitution payments and fines to victims, Sorkin, 29, will be left with only pennies.

To give a little background, in 2019, Sorkin was convicted of numerous counts of attempted grand larceny, theft of services, and larceny in the second degree for defrauding New York hotels and wealthy acquaintances, according to Daily Mail.

She was convicted of a 4 to 12-year prison sentence at Albion Correctional Facility in New York but expects an early release as soon as February 2021.

During her month-long trial, Sorkin lived lavishly in New York hotel rooms she could not afford. She even “promised a friend an all-expenses trip to Morocco and then stiffed her with the $62,000 bill and peddled bogus bank statements in her quest for a $22 million loan for a private arts club.”

The 29-year-old believes she hasn’t stolen any money, but she has agreed to pay City National Bank and Citibank, as she feels that she owes them.

“She said, ‘You know, I want them to be paid. I didn’t steal the money, but I do owe money, so I’m not going to fight it. That’s not who I am,” her attorney said.

Of the $320k Sorkin received from Netflix, she has already used the money to pay $199,000 in restitution to the banks she scammed, Insider reports. Another $24,000 has also been paid in state fines.

According to Daily Mail, $70,000 in restitution will go to Citibank.  “The Wall Street Journal first reported that Sorokin had already paid $100,000 she owed to City National Bank.”

Sorkin has already paid $75,000 in attorney fees, and she is bound to have more fees once her trial comes to an end.

Sorkin would not have been subject to pay anything at all if her appeal would have been successful.

“Inventing Anna” is set to be released later this year by Netflix and is being produced by Shonda Rhimes’s production company, Shondaland. Sorkin will be played by “Ozark’s” Julia Garner.

Congrats may be in order for DaniLeigh as rumors swirl on social media that she is expecting her first child.

The “Yellow Bone” star was spotted out over the weekend wearing a fitted red dress, and her little tummy appears to be protruding a bit. Fans quickly speculated that she was sporting a baby bump.

The 26-year-old singer announced that she and rapper DaBaby had parted ways last month after the drama surrounding a highly publicized love triangle that included rapper MeMe, who shares a daughter with DaBaby.

During a recent Instagram Story post, fans additionally speculated that Dani and DaBaby were in a vehicle together, which suggested that the two may have reconciled.

Neither Dani nor her “Bop” rapping former boo has confirmed the news of their rekindled romance, let alone a potential new love child on the way. Nevertheless, Twitter had a field day with the photo floating around.

If DaniLeigh is expecting a bundle of joy, let’s wish her a happy and healthy pregnancy.

MacKenzie Scott, Jeff Bezos’ Ex-Wife, Marries A Seattle School Teacher

Mackenzie Scott and Jeff Bezos made headlines in 2019 when the news of their divorce hit mainstream media. But, two years following the split, Scott happily walked down the aisle again. 

As reported by The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Scott married Seattle teacher Dan Jewett. When the two officially wed is unknown. 

Bezos seems to be very supportive of the partnership, calling Dan a “great guy.” “I am happy and excited for the both of them,” he told The Wall Street Journal

Rumors of Scott’s remarriage more than likely began to circulate after Jewett added his name to Scott’s Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates. 

Grateful for the opportunity to give back, Jewett never imagined his efforts would be as great as they soon will become.  

“It is strange to be writing a letter indicating I plan to give away the majority of my wealth during my lifetime, as I have never sought to gather the kind of wealth required to feel like saying such a thing would have a particular meaning,” Jewett wrote. 

“In a stroke of happy coincidence, I am married to one of the most generous and kind people I know — and joining her in a commitment to pass on an enormous financial wealth to serve others,” Jewett continued on. 

Jewett is not wrong about his new wife’s generous nature. 

After Scott’s split with Bezos, she was left with a 4% stake in Amazon, which then was a whopping $38.3 billion, Bloomberg reported, according to People

Since then, Scott has been a dedicated philanthropist.

In just the past four months, the 50-year-old has donated about $4.2 billion to 384 organizations. 

As of now, Scott is the 22nd richest person in the world, People reported.

Dallas Cop Charged For Arranging Two Murders, Including A Woman Who He Called “Informant”

A Dallas police officer is now on the other side of the law after authorities alleged he orchestrated the murders of two people in 2017.

According to PEOPLE, Bryan Riser, 36 and a 13-year veteran with the city police, faces murder charges that include a charge for the murder of a 31-year-old woman acting as a police informant.

Edgardo Garcia, Dallas’ Police Chief, detailed the allegations against the former officer during a recent press conference, saying that he had hired someone to kidnap and kill Albert Douglas, 61, and Liza Saenz, 31.

One of the three men involved and charged in the killings told prosecutors nearly two years ago that he had information on Riser, the chief added.

The man was a longtime friend of Riser, and they use to rob houses together years before. The two caught up with one another in 2013 when Riser approached him with an offer.

Riser is accused of arranging Douglas’ murder first, paying $3,500 for the killing. The witness said Douglas was abducted in early 2017 and was fatally shot and dumped in the Trinity River. The body was never found.

Two weeks later is when Riser offered him $6,000 to kidnap and kill Saenz. Saenz was shot multiple times, and her remains were tossed in the river. Authorities recovered the remains on March 10, 2017.

In September 2017, police arrested Kevin Kidd, 28, Emmanuel Kilpatrick, 31, and Jermon Simmons, 35, charging all three in Saenz’s slaying.

Riser now faces two murder charges for his role in the killings. He is being held on a hefty $5 million bail.
