German con artist Anna Delvey, who is now capitalizing on her status as a convicted celebrity scammer, required attendees at her birthday afterparty to sign non-disclosure agreements and provide their social security numbers.
Page Six reported that most attendees at the exclusive party at Delvey’s New York apartment, where she is under house arrest and can have people over but not leave, left that part of the agreement blank or filled in a fake number.
“The night was seriously somehow magical and full of synchronicities, things kept happening twice, or maybe it just felt like that because the party was so intimate but like a really good night,” one attendee told the New York Post’s gossip site.
Before the exclusive afterparty, Delvey hosted an almost as exclusive invitation-only “Happy F****** Birthday” dinner for her 32nd, which was filmed for her reality show, “Delvey’s Dinner Party.”
Delvey’s neighbors made some of their spaces available for the dinner portion of the evening, with one telling Page Six that “She’s a celebrity in the building. She has a little cult.”
The after-party was attended by designer Cynthia Rowley and her daughter, Rachel Rabbit White, writer Cat Marnell, and other members of toplofty New York society.
Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, is under house arrest while US immigration authorities seek to deport her and she fights that, although she has no visa, as CrimeOnline previously reported. She was convicted in 2019 of pretending to be an heiress and stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from friends and banks.
Now she’s selling her art and poetry, ingratiating herself with the glitterati, and taking money from the likes of Netflix, which produced “Inventing Anna,” for the rights to her story.
