A woman named Sophia Nur who was apparently posing as a publicist scammed multiple Los Angeles influencers such as Jeff Wittek and Denzel Dion out of thousands of dollars — as well as faking a pregnancy with high-flying artist Jack Harlow.
LA is home to some of the biggest names in global entertainment, ranging from A-list stars of the silver screen to young YouTubers looking to make their way up.
Apparently, some grifters are looking to take advantage of these rich celebrities, though — and someone going by the name Sophia Nur may have pulled off the ultimate heist.
With #SurvivingSophia trending and numerous influencers discussing her alleged antics in a Twitter Spaces call, it was alleged that Sophia may have made herself a lot of money simply from scamming influencers.
What is #SurvivingSophia?
As stated above, many influencers and their fans have referred to this situation as them “surviving Sophia.” They recounted stories about her befriending them and claiming to need to borrow money, then never seeing it again.
During the call, and in various tweets surrounding it, the influencers shared their stories.
One person, Camille, claimed that she bought a plane ticket and hotel stays for Sophia, who she now says “kept trying to get over on her” by frequently requesting more money without paying it back.

Suzy Antonyan and Jeff Wittek, members of David Dobrik’s Vlog Squad, were both also in the Twitter Space, speaking about Sophia and their experiences.
Wittek revealed that he gave Sophia his credit card, as she regularly told stories of how she had been stolen from, robbed, or didn’t have a place to stay.
She also allegedly spoke of how rapper Jack Harlow was obsessed with her, even suggesting that she was pregnant with his child. TikTok user Bluevibe93 posted multiple videos of the Twitter Space, including the first one, embedded here.

Did Jack Harlow get Sophia Nur pregnant?
At the time of writing, there is no discernible proof that Jack Harlow actually got Sophia Nur pregnant, and much of what is being accused is no more than just accusations.
Mike Majlak, YouTuber and co-host of the Impaulsive podcast alongside Logan Paul, revealed that he met Sophia in Atlanta in April 2021, alleging that she met Jack Harlow “and many others” that night.
for reference, this video is from Atlanta from SIX MONTHS AGO the night Jake beat askren. this was also the night she first met harlow and many others.

Jack was trending on Twitter as a result of the unfolding drama, but he hasn’t yet spoken publicly about Sophia, whether he impregnated her or whether he even knows her.
Did Sophia Nur really scam influencers for $11m?
There have been many tweets and posts online suggesting that Sophia scammed these influencers and celebrities for a total of $11m.
This figure appears to be unsubstantiated, with the figure not being provided or mentioned throughout the Twitter Space.
The accusations point to thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars, being earned through her “scams” — but $11m might be overstepping the mark.
Internet trolls influencers
Many people hearing about the story struggled to feel sympathy for these LA influencers, sharing jokes and memes in abundance. Knight Tasia said that “y’all are just dumb,” while Asia used TikTok star Khaby Lame to make them see the error in their ways.
You literally gave her your credit card number and let her in your home and then believed her lies without fact checking and etc. that’s not a mental illness y’all are just dumb. #SurvivingSophia pic.twitter.com/yRPlOqlox7

Sophia’s Twitter account was quickly deactivated, though has since been taken over by someone joking about the drama and writing unsavory or derogatory tweets.
Whether we ever hear Sophia’s side of the story remains to be seen.
