Anna Delvey’s former lawyer collapsed dramatically in court on Friday as the faux German heiress continues to demand court records to help her deportation battle.
Delvey, aka Anna Sorokin, confronts her former lawyer Audrey Thomas in Manhattan.
Thomas was previously disbarred for financial crimes last year and has threatened to write a tell-all book about her troubled former client.
The courtroom drama came as Delvey is embroiled in a legal battle with Thomas, as she claims the attorney withheld recordings of her deportation hearings.

Delvey, aka Anna Sorokin, was the subject of the Netflix show ‘Inventing Anna’
The 31-year-old woman, who was the subject of the Netflix show ‘Inventing Anna,’ claims Thomas violated a July 2022 court order to transfer court documents to her new lawyer, according to Manhattan Supreme Court filings.
Thomas previously sent two batches of deportation papers in August of last year to Delvey’s last attorney.
However, he allegedly failed to turn over “any of the digital audio recordings of (Delvey’s) immigration court hearings,” according to the lawsuit against him.
Delvey’s legal troubles arise as he continues to plan for his future in the US, even buying a reality show about his life.
She was previously in jail for defrauding New York banks, hotels, and socialites out of $275,000, tricking them into thinking she was an heiress.
The Russian-born German, who moved to the US in 2013, was charged with grand theft after getting caught up in her years-long scam.
She was sentenced to between four and 12 years in prison for her crimes in 2019, but was released early for good behavior in February 2021.
Thomas was previously disbarred for financial crimes last year and threatened to write a tell-all book about her troubled former client.
Speaking to Tatler after her release, Delvery said that she is “absolutely not” a conwpoman.
I became famous for a financial crime. They charged me with six grand thefts and convicted me of four,” he added.
“It was the job of the prosecutors to make me look bad, but in the end, they got upset because of how famous I became.”
