Exclusive: Alleged 'Tinder Swindler' Simon Leviev Breaks Silence to Inside Edition After Netflix Doc's Release

Speaking to Inside Edition for his first interview since the release of “The Tinder Swindler,” Simon Leviev says he's not "this monster" he's being made out to be.

The man at the center of “The Tinder Swindler,” the shocking Netflix documentary seen by more than 50 million people worldwide, is breaking his silence for the first time in an interview with Inside Edition.

“I’m not this monster,” Simon Leviev told Inside Edition in an exclusive sit-down. 

“I was just a single guy that wanted to meet some girls on Tinder,” he said. 

Leviev allegedly lured women with private jets, yachts and fancy cars. 

His alleged victims have said he manipulated them and swindled them out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. He denies defrauding the women and says he’s “not a Tinder Swindler.”

So where was Leviev when Inside Edition caught up with him? 

And why is his model girlfriend sticking with him?

Those questions will be answered on the next Inside Edition.
