Israel deports US billionaire’s son for breaking lockdown rules

Israel Immigration Authority on Sunday said it was deporting the son of American billionaire Shari Redstone for violating the country's coronavirus quarantine rules during his secret visit to see his model girlfriend.

Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority said it had granted Brandon Korff an exceptional permit to enter the country on Friday to visit his brother, who is serving in the Israeli military. 

It said Korff "violated the isolation orders from the moment he entered the country and met his Israeli partner” and “stayed with her in the same apartment.” It said Korff, son of the chairwoman of ViacomCBS, was ordered to leave the country immediately.

The statement from the ministry did not identify the partner. But Korff, who is in his mid-30s, is dating Israeli model Yael Shelbia. The 18-year-old model, who is doing compulsory military service, has appeared in campaigns for Israeli clothing company Renuar and KKW Beauty makeup line.

Israel banned entry to non-citizens or residents in March in an effort to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. Israel authorities announced that all individuals entering the country are to remain in quarantine for two weeks following their arrival. 

Last week, Israel’s deputy director of the Health Ministry came under fire after Teddy Sagi one of the richest people in the country was granted an exemption from the isolation orders. Teddy Sagi was then spotted attending a party with Israeli celebrities.
