If you were hooked to The Tinder Swindler on Netflix, you may have been left wondering how Simon Leviev - real name Shimon Hayut - is now living a seemingly normal life, having only spent five months in prison.
Simon is now living a very lavish lifestyle, alongside his girlfriend - Israeli model Kate Konlin - who has now broken her silence on the Netflix film, revealing her thoughts on the movie, the women involved and Simon himself.
Kate has said that she does not believe the women in the documentary - Cecilie Fjellhøy, Pernilla Sjöholm and Ayleen Charlotte - and claims Simon has never asked to borrow money off her.
"My god, it is like, how someone can build such a fake story," she told Inside Edition.
During the same interview, Simon said he "wants to clear his name" and claims to be "the biggest gentleman in the world".
"They presented it as a documentary but in truth it's a completely made-up movie," he said.
"I am not this monster that everybody has created. I was just a single guy that wanted to meet some girls on Tinder."
Simon also said that he never claimed to be the son of billionaire diamond mogul, Lev Leviev - also known as the King of Diamonds.
"I'm a legit businessman. I got into Bitcoin in 2011, it was nothing. I don't need to say how much it is worth now... I feel bad for something that I didn't do? No, I feel bad for whatever happened to myself. I want to clear my name. I want to say to the world, this is not true."
If you're yet to watch The Tinder Swindler it focuses Leviev - the Israeli conman who used Tinder to trick women out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Since the show aired, Leviev's new manager, Gina Rodriguez, has said her client has 'evidence' that will prove he is innocent.
Speaking to LADbible she said: "He looks forward to clearing his name and sharing his side," she said.
"I watched the Netflix documentary on 13 February and I was intrigued with the story but I had a lot of unanswered questions.
"I was curious as to what Simon's side of the story was since it was not featured in the show."
