Soros’ Ex-Girlfriend Busted For Prescription Scam

May 21 2010 | 9:32am ET

Hedge fund billionaire George Soros’ ex and former Miss Russia Anna Malova is in trouble with the law again.

Malova was arrested this week for forging a prescription—on a stolen prescription pad—for the painkiller Vicodin, New York’s Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor said. It’s the second time the 38-year old has been busted for allegedly cribbing a prescription paid: Another case is pending in Manhattan from November.

Malova is no stranger to prescriptions: She was a doctor in Russia. But she has no medical license in New York, where she moved after winning the Miss Russia pageant in 1998.

Soros’ fling with Malova helped end his second marriage in 2004.
