Brynne And Geoffrey Edelsten Separated Earlier This Year
Tonight on Brynne: My Bedazzled Life there is a big blow up between Geoffrey and Brynne Edelsten which may have been the cause for them to separate for a month. It will be interesting to see whether if what happens on screen aligns with what is currently be told in a court case.
The case is related to action he is taking in the Victorian Supreme Court against an American woman he met an internet dating site.
By the way is there any reality star not in court this year. There was Lara Bingle, half the cast of The Shire and now this pair. Though to be fair they are taking the action in a civil case.
The Age reports:
THE marriage of controversial businessman Geoffrey Edelsten and his reality TV show wife was apparently not so bedazzling earlier this year when the pair wrestled during an argument, a court has heard.
Giving evidence at a civil trial over action he is taking in the Victorian Supreme Court against an American woman he met on the internet, Mr Edelsten testified that he and his wife, Brynne, had separated for about four weeks in March after an argument that had turned physical.
”Brynne had taken my mobile phone and when I asked for it back she refused. We had a wrestle and she went out on the balcony for a cigarette and called her lawyer, who told her to call police,” Mr Edelsten told the court yesterday.
Asked what his marriage was like at the time, Mr Edelsten replied: ”Strained.”
The court heard that while he and his wife were separated he had previously met New Jersey woman Stacy da Silva on sugardaddyforme.com during a business trip to the United States.
But details of the 69-year-old disgraced doctor’s dealings with Ms da Silva have been suppressed and remain the subject of a court injunction order he is seeking so they remain confidential.
He told Justice David Beach: ”I’m embarrassed about personal matters being retained in front of anyone else … I regret that this is my only course of remedy.”
The court heard Mr Edelsten told his 29-year-old wife about his dealings with Ms da Silva once they had ”well and truly made up”.
Ms Edelsten is expected to give evidence about a phone call the court heard she made to Ms da Silva, ordering her to leave her husband alone. ”She told her what she thought of her and that she was a tramp and to stop contacting her husband,” Dr Edelsten said, adding that he and his wife were in San Diego when the call was made.More will come out as the trial continues.
