An aspiring actress who has had minor roles in “Law & Order” and “The Sopranos” is suing her married former lover for allegedly trying to snatch back $3 million in gifts — including a Trump Palace love nest.
Ayelet Argaman says in new Manhattan court papers that she embarked on a sizzling affair with her much older sugar daddy, Beachwold Residential President Robert Rothenberg, more than a year ago.
The 35-year-old blonde says Rothenberg, 55, wooed her by forwarding to her emails from rabbis praising the developer as a “charitable religious man” and promising to get an album produced for the actress and fledgling singer.

He sent her another email when they first started dating in September 2013 in which he said she “probably wants a younger version of me” but coos that “God works in ways we don’t understand,’’ according to the suit.
“For me this is new, fresh and exciting. It’s your softness. Your depth and your soul . . . Intrigued?” Rothenberg wrote, the documents state.
The Harvard MBA then bought Argaman the $1.4 million, one-bedroom Trump pad on East 69th Street and gave her a 60 percent ownership stake in it, according to the lawsuit.
He also showered Argaman with $1.3 million in other gifts, including money to fund her entertainment career, luxury home furnishings and $100,000 a month for expenses, according to court papers.
After she dumped him in June, he threatened to sue her, claiming New York’s “heart-balm statute” requires her to return the gifts he gave her because they were made in contemplation of marriage, her suit says.
But Argaman argues the law doesn’t apply in this case because Rothenberg was and still is married.
“An adulterer like Rothenberg cannot invoke an exception to the heart-balm statute — which is intended for single people actually engaged to be married — which was never the case here,” her suit says.
Rothenberg’s lawyer, Larry Hutcher, told The Post that many of the allegations in Argaman’s suit are not true. He added that his client has a temporary order of protection from Nassau County Family Court that prevents Argaman from contacting Rothenberg or his family.
Rothenberg’s company owns more than 10,000 apartment buildings across the United States.
