Israel revealed it was deporting the son of Shari Redstone, the billionaire media heiress whose family owns CBS and Viacom, because he violated the country’s coronavirus quarantine rules while paying a secret visit to his model girlfriend.
Immigration authorities said Brandon Korff had been granted a special permit to enter the country on Friday to visit his brother, who is serving in the Israel Defense Forces.
But 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,” the Population and Immigration Authority said Sunday.
It said Korff was ordered to leave the country immediately.

The statement did not identify Korff’s partner, but he is dating 18-year-old Israeli model Yael Shelbia, who is doing her compulsory military service.
Shelbia has appeared in campaigns for Israeli clothing company Renuar and Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty makeup line.
In March, Israel banned entry to non-citizens or residents in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The country requires everyone arriving from abroad to remain in quarantine for two weeks.
Last week, the deputy director of Israel’s Health Ministry came under fire after an Israeli billionaire businessman was granted an exemption from the isolation orders.
