‘The Tinder Swindler’ Simon Leviev gets talent manager, hopes to star in his own dating show

Simon Leviev has been the talk of the town since the release of The Tinder Swindler on Netflix—and now he’s looking to make use of his popularity to make moolah. 

TMZ reported that he has “already signed” with Hollywood talent manager Gina Rodriguez. Aside from writing a book, sources told the celebrity and entertainment website that “Simon’s idea for a potential dating show includes women competing for his love, and he’s interested in sharing dating dos and don’ts on a potential podcast.” 

In another report, Rodriguez herself confirmed to Metro that she is now representing the serial catfisher. “[The Tinder Swindler] left me with a lot of unanswered questions and was very biased. I believe that there are two sides to every story and everyone should have the chance to tell their side of the story.”

With real name Shimon Hayut, he pretended to be a diamond mogul and a billionaire’s son on Tinder to con women out of millions. His love frauds have been detailed in the aforementioned Netflix addition from the makers of 2019 true crime watch Don’t F*** with Cats

Cecilie Fjellhoy, one of his victims, took to Instagram to express her disapproval of the management company’s latest move. “The CEO is applauding this behavior. After their client have been making death threats and defrauded millions all around the world. What a sellout!” she wrote in a now-expired IG story.
