Geoffrey Edelsten’s biggest contributions were in the business world, but the 78-year-old will be best remembered for his colorful relationships.

Edelsten died Friday afternoon at his apartment on St Kilda Road in Melbourne’s CBD.

His death is not considered suspicious.

The GP and founder of the Allied Medical Group loved AFL football and became the first private owner of the Sydney Swans.

But it was his love for women that made headlines. Although he met and married his first wife, model Leanne Nesbitt, in the 1980s, it was his relationship with Brynne Gordon that most Australians will remember.

Gordon, a fitness instructor who changed her name to Edelsten after they got married in 2009, was a socialite who regularly appeared on the Australian gossip pages.

Her agent was approached Friday night for comment, telling news.com.au: « It is with great sadness that Dr. Geoffrey Edelsten to hear today.

“On behalf of Ms. Brynne Edelsten, we offer our deepest and sincere condolences.

“Brynne and Geoffrey enjoyed some truly beautiful moments, including their wedding where Brynne went to Australia since their wedding in 2009.

« Although their marriage ended after 5 years together, Brynne remains grateful for the good times the couple shared together and is deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news of his passing. »

Brynne, who was 25 when she met Edelsten on a blind date in Las Vegas, married the multimillionaire in style. Their lavish wedding on November 29, 2009 would be talked about for years to come

The couple, who had a 41-year age difference, raised eyebrows with their overwhelmingly lavish wedding costing a whopping $3.3 million at Melbourne’s Crown Casino.

In an interview with Stellar magazine, Brynne said she never married for money.

“Money is fun. No one is going to refuse money. But it was never about that. Believe it or not, Geoff can be very, very nice,” she said of the Melbourne-based businessman.

Looking back on their wedding day, she said, “I cried all the way. Mom said, « Brynne, if you don’t want to, we can run now. » But of course I didn’t want to run away. I wanted to marry him. »

Their wedding included a helicopter arrival and circus performers for 500 guests, including Margot Robbie, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and American actress Fran Drescher.

Oddly enough, Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander gave a speech at the wedding and told a DVD invite recorded by Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall.

The couple had never met Alexander or The Nanny actress Drescher.

« We met them briefly when they flew into Melbourne, » Brynne told news.com.au last year.

“They were both sweet. Especially Jason was very funny. Geoff had them at the wedding because he wanted people who were Jewish, because he’s Jewish.

« When they spoke at the wedding, I remember thinking Jason was absolutely hilarious. »

Brynne later told news.com.au that she didn’t even know Margot Robbie was at her wedding.

« That’s when I started getting to know Australia in general, let alone who the people were at the wedding, » she said.

“I didn’t really understand, let alone realize how lucky I was to have those people there. I didn’t realize how important it was, » she added.

“Now I’m looking at some of the guest list, and it’s actually quite impressive. I was a bit aware of it then.”

The couple’s relationship would not go far. Brynne later said it was « a lonely marriage because he worked very hard ».

After the split, Edelsten was linked to Gabi Grecko, who is 46 years his junior.

They married on June 11, 2015.

Edelsten and Grecko became engaged in November 2014 after he proposed to her during the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse.

Grecko posed for engagement photos in an elaborate bustier and winged headdress, towering over Edelsten next to her, all dressed in bright yellow.

The union got off to a shaky start after one of them promptly dropped the ring and Edelsten had to look for it under a couch in the Birdcage in Flemington.

Grecko and Edelsten have always made headlines with her bold outfits and colorful suits.

The personality split from Edelsten in 2015, but reunited with him in 2018. The couple was rumored to have split up in 2019.
