- Anna Sorokin inspired Inventing Anna
- She's been in custody in the United States
- Sorokin is being deported to Germany
Anna Sorokin's days in the US appear to be numbered.

Inventing Anna: More trouble for the real Anna Sorokin
Anna Sorokin has been fighting to stay in the US, but she appears to have lost the battle. Sorokin will be deported to Germany imminently, The New York Times reported on Monday.
There was a rumour Sorokin was already on a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, but she is still in custody in New York as of Tuesday, according to The AP. They also say she will resist deportation further.
So, Sorokin's life post-Inventing Anna is getting more complicated. She's already working on new media projects following the massive success of the Netflix series based on her life story. But she may not be welcome on US soil.
Sorokin is the real-life "Anna Delvey/Sorokin," played by Julia Garner in the 2022 Netflix show. The controversial Russian-German was convicted of her crimes and served over three years in prison before getting out on parole in 2021.
Now, deportation could be the conclusion to Sorokin's story the US. But it likely won't be the last we hear of her.
