‘Fake heiress’ Anna Sorokin already back on social media with glam shot

Sure, “fake heriess” Anna Sorokin, a k a Anna Delvey, wasn’t born into extreme wealth or royalty, but she was born for this — life as a fabulously messy con-woman-turned-social-media influencer.

After years spent defrauding businesses and friends to the tune of about $200,000, Sorokin was released from Albion Correction Facility early on Thursday on the basis of good behavior. The femme fatale spent less than two years behind bars out of her full four- to 12-year sentence.

Sorokin, who pretended to be the German heiress to a 60 million euro fortune, wasted no time on her splashy return to social media following her release.

“Prison is so exhausting, you wouldn’t know,” she wrote for her 75,000 followers on Instagram, in a post published around 4 a.m. on Friday morning. With 1,700 “likes” and counting, an image shows Sorokin wrapped in bed, though the wannabe socialite couldn’t be bothered to take off her giant sunglasses.

The post was geo-tagged in Manhattan — possibly the site of a “male friend” where Sorokin told the Board of Parole she’d be staying upon release, though she expects to be deported back to Germany imminently.

The “fake heiress” was famous for her fashion meltdowns during trial proceedings, insisting a stylist curate her outfits.

A second post on Friday morning featured the notorious scene from “Basic Instinct” which sees Sharon Stone in a skin-tight white mini-dress. The photo included the caption “Pleading the fifth.”

Sorokin’s trial was famously drawn out as the fashionista frequently insisted on postponing proceedings by complaining of the less-than-glamourous garments she was offered to wear during hearings, asking instead for the aid of her stylist.

During the Oct. 6 hearing which would decide her early release, the Soho siren apologized, telling the board she was “really ashamed” of her crimes, which included grifting tens of thousands from those around her, as well as a scheme to score a $22 million loan to launch a Manhattan art club.

Despite her arrest and losing out on millions of unearned dollars, the viral vamp landed a $320,000 deal with Netflix for the rights to her life story — though $200,000 of it has reportedly already gone to restitution.

Anna Sorokin faced four to 12 years in prison at the start of her May 2019 sentence.
