Brynne Edelsten reflects on the rough year which saw her leave an institution. A bad relationship can lead to homelessness

Geoffrey Edelsten’s exwife Brynne claims she was made homeless by Geoffrey Edelsten and sought crisis accommodation through a charity in Melbourne during the lockdown.

Brynne Edelsten once lived a privileged lifestyle with her ex husband, the late businessman Geoffrey Edelsten.

But the 38-year-old had revealed to this week’s Stellar Magazine that 2020 saw her left alone and homeless during Melbourne‘s lockdown.

‘For me, the reason it was really, really difficult was because I was in a relationship that wasn’t healthy,’ she said.

In addition to walking out of that relationship, lockdown prevented her from seeing her friends for help. 

Thankfully, the American-born beauty was put up in crisis accommodation for two months, giving her time to take stock of the current state of her life. 

While Brynne admitted her temporary living situation was less than glamorous, she said she was grateful to the charity organisations that helped her restart her life.

She explained that her dire situation was a learning curve that taught her to trust herself.

Brynne told the publication that while she is taking one day at a time, she is in a ‘better place’.  

‘There are still struggles like everyone has every day. Nobody is invincible. There are inner battles. But I’m in a better place,’ she proudly added.

Wedding: Brynne, a fitness instructor from California, met Geoffrey, 40 years her senior, in October 2008. The then-couple wed in a lavish ceremony at The Crown in Melbourne in 2009, that reportedly cost $3million. He was 66 and she was 26

This comes as Brynne is set to star in the new season of SAS Australia, on Channel Seven.

In the new trailer, she is shown shaking and trying to calm herself down while in a helicopter over a body of water. 

She says in the voice over: ‘I am more than just Geoffrey’s ex-wife. I’m not a gold digger – I can get through anything.’
