Ayleen Charlotte stuns viewers on Red Table Talk with revelations about Simon Leviev.

A Tale Of Deceit That Many Could Not Believe

During this week's episode of Red Table Talk, Ayleen Charlotte, who was one of the victims featured in The Tinder Swindler documentary on Netflix, opened up about being lured and eventually falling for Simon Leviev's schemes.

During her appearance on the show, Charlotte recalls how Simon pretended to be part of the real Leviev diamond family to convince his targets about his status. She also alludes to her world falling apart and the things she has done and is doing to get her life back in order and on track again.

“It took me almost one and a half years to build myself up again. You have so many emotions because you lost the love of your life, you lost all of your money, you're in big problems with banks, with loans,” shared Charlotte shared.

How Charlotte Discovered The Truth

Simon Leviev has taken many people for a ride, but when it comes to the real love that he promised so many women along the way, that never panned out, especially not for Ayleen. During the show, host Jada Pinkett Smith asks her to divulge how she found out the truth about Leviev.

"I opened up Instagram and there I saw his face on my feed, and I was like 'ok, this is weird.' And I saw this whole article from a Norwegian paper and I just started bursting into tears. I said 'Oh my God, he's not real! He's a fraud!"

More Legal Action Is Underway

According to reports, there are many more people pursuing legal action against the Tinder Swindler, with more victims allegedly still out there.
