    Sitting across the table from him was Anne, a 21-year-old German model that has been rumored throughout the last few weeks to be his new girlfriend. According to Maariv, the young model traveled to Israel to spend time with her new love interest, flanked by several bodyguards.
    Aside from his recent breakup with Israeli model Kate Konlin in April, Anne seems unbothered by the famous accusations against the "Tinder Swindler".
    Leviev was recently ordered by the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court to pay social media platform Instagram NIS 20,000 ($5800) in legal fees after he failed to appear in court. On top of that, the judge ordered him to pay the state NIS 5,000 ($1,450).
    After he was given the ruling in absentia, Leviev told Mako that he was not aware of the hearing and that he planned to file an appeal.
    "It's possible they sent out a letter and I never received it. Either way, I will appeal," he said.
