Despite trying her best to maintain a quiet life, Bolton was incriminated in a controversial matter in 2011. She and her husband, then boyfriend, had been sued for $50 million by Adrianna Ferreyr, George's former girlfriend. Ferreyr claimed that Soros had given his Upper Manhattan apartment to Bolton yet he had promised to give it to her. The apartment’s worth at the time was $1.9 million. To avoid further trouble, Soros transferred a significant amount of money to his second wife, Weber. In turn, she was asked to forego his 16 room duplex at 1060 Fifth Avenue for which she had expressed interest.
During the court hearing, Ferreyr went on a rampage and attacked Soros, Bolton and their lawyers. The dramatic event placed Bolton in an uncomfortable position.
