Who Is Liza Naumova? New Details On Estranged Wife Of Giuliani Associate Living High Life In Miami

Igor Fruman, a Ukrainian associate of Rudy Giuliani, was arrested last week and charged with campaign finance crimes. His estranged wife, Yelyzaveta "Liza" Naumova is the mother of his three kids. She filed for divorce from him in 2017. The brunette bombshell is allegedly living her best life in Miami. (We're speculating she profited well from her marriage to Fruman as the same year she filed for divorce she opened her luxury clothing store in the chic Design District of Miami.) Though she married Fruman in 2005 and had three children with him, there's no sign of him on her Instagram. Rather, she posts pics of herself hobnobbing with some of the elite members of the fashion industry. 

Her ex-husband (it isn't clear if they are fully divorced or not yet) Igor Fruman, along with Lev Parnas are known associates of Rudy Giuliani. They've been accused of campaign finance crimes by the federal government for helping Giuliani with his search in Ukraine for detrimental information on Donald Trump's political opponents. They are also accused of manufacturing a case against Joe Biden's son, Hunter. Both men are Soviet-born Florida real estate businessmen and naturalized American citizens. While her baby daddy cools his heels in prison, Liza Naumova is jet-setting all over the world, partying with Victoria's Secret supermodels, and generally behaving like she doesn't have a care in the world. 

Who is Liza Naumova?

1. She owns the boutique ODDS

Liza Naumova married Igor Fruman in 2005. She was born in Belarus. The couple lived in a $3 million condo in Miami which they are now fighting over. She filed for divorce from Fruman in 2017, the same year she opened her luxury clothing boutique ODDS in Miami. According to a source close to her, her business is totally legit, meanwhile, her ex's is not.

2. London Fashion Week

As her ex-husband was preparing to flee the U.S. ahead of his arrest, Naumova was in London participating in London Fashion Week. The internet has gone crazy speculating on the nature of her marriage and divorce as she is a relatively young and beautiful woman and her ex, well, the whole thing comes across like they are a real-life Boris and Natasha. Does that make Rudy Giuliani the squirrel?

3. Partying with supermodels

A perusal of Liza Naumova's Instagram reveals a life of parties, fashion and supermodels. In one snap she's seen posing next to Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima. She captioned the photo: "playdate of Miami Mama’s (sic)" In a few other recent photos, Liza is partying away on a yacht in Ibiza.

4. Her ex tried to have her drug-tested

Igor Furman reportedly tried to have her randomly tested for drugs. This allegedly happened while the former couple hammered out details of their divorce. If she's worried about any connection she may have to her ex's crimes, there's certainly no evidence of it on her social media accounts. Something else there's no evidence of is her ex-husband. Either she's never posted about him or she's scrubbed him from her online profiles as of this writing. 

5. Contentious divorce

There are no reports of why their 12-year marriage fell apart. In addition to the battle over the $3 million condo and the alleged random drug testing, Naumova pulled a move of her own. She was able to successfully get her hands on her husband's financial records from American Express and JP Morgan Chase Bank. The former couple has a hearing scheduled to settle the battle over the condo on October 29th, 2019.

6. They tried to leave the country

Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas were arrested at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. last week. They were preparing to board a flight to Europe. Fruman and Parnes both held one-way tickets to Vienna. According to the indictment against them, in September and October 2018 an unknown Russian businessman sent two wire transfers of $500,000 each from foreign banks to U.S. accounts controlled by Fruman. The money was then used by Fruman and Parnes to buy influence with U.S. politicians and candidates. For instance, Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney, was paid $500,000 for work he did for one of Parnas's companies.
