Elmira Naymark, 32, and Ron Ozer, 29, seemed like a match made in heaven from the moment they met through mutual friends in 2013.
Both lived glamorous and successful lives, reports the New York Post—Naymark as a beautiful model, and Ozer as a portfolio manager making multi-million dollar natural gas deals.
The two embarked on a whirlwind romance.
He showered her with expensive gifts and trips, and even introduced her to his parents. When Naymark asked if they would ever get married, Ozer would hint at a surprise coming soon.
It seemed like nothing could go wrong.
But the couple got a surprise two-and-a-half years after the romance started, reports the Daily Mail. Naymark was pregnant with a baby girl, and she couldn’t have been happier.
Ozer, however, was anything but overjoyed.
In January, the businessman ordered his girlfriend to abort her baby. He told her to “call the clinic” and “take a pill,” according to court documents uncovered by the New York Post.
But Naymark refused to end their baby’s life.
Ozer was livid, telling his girlfriend “I f–king hate you,” and calling her “disgusting” and “white trash.” Growing more desperate, Ozer attempted to bribe his girlfriend to get the abortion.
According to court documents, he had a colleague reach out to the model over text message and tell her not to have the child:
“This isn’t the only chance for you to have children. You don’t have to force this and do it alone.”
Then he offered up cash on behalf of Ozer:
“He’d be willing to offer a lump sum of money to you . . . I’m sure he would have no problem with 50k-75,000+.”
Naymark didn’t give in.
In September, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
Ozer was nowhere to be seen, and Naymark found herself in a difficult financial situation.
She was in the process of getting her real estate license so that she could work as a leasing agent to support her child. However, she ended up on food stamps and Medicaid in the process, while the multi-millionaire father ignored the mother and child.
Ozer made upwards of $60 million in one deal last year, and lived in a lavish apartment formerly owned by Robert DeNiro.
He didn’t feel the need to help his little girl, and even denied that he was her father.
Now, Naymark is fighting to get support for her daughter.
The former model has filed a lawsuit asking for child support that is “proportionate with [Ozer’s] vast wealth and income,” according to court documents.
She has also asked the judge to order a paternity test and grant her full custody of the child.
If Ozer is found to be the biological father, he is legally required to financially support the child with an amount proportionate to his income until she is 21, according to New York laws.
Yahoo! News reports that Naymark has also asked for a $5 million life insurance policy that benefits her and their daughter in the event of Ozer’s death.
Ozer has yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit.
