Brynne Edelsten finally talks about hitting rock bottom, being charged with drug possession, and the father of her baby.
On Sunday night’s 7News Spotlight: The Fame Game, the Melbourne socialite spoke out for the first time.
A person on TV Brynne Edelsten has talked about how she hit rock bottom after her divorce from Geoffrey Edelsten, a famous millionaire, left her without money, prospects, or a place to live.
The Melbourne socialite spoke out for the first time on Sunday night’s 7News Spotlight: The Fame Game. She talked about how hard the time after her divorce was.
Between 2009 and 2014, Brynne and Geoffrey, who used to be a doctor and is now a businessman, were married. They were 40 years apart in age.
Geoffrey was 78 when he died alone in June of last year.
“I probably haven’t had the best relationships since then, and there’s been domestic violence,” Brynne told the show. At the time of filming, she was expecting her first child.
“There have been times when they were homeless and had to go to a shelter… “
At that time, I didn’t feel like I was worth anything. So that I could rebuild myself, love myself again, and stand on my own two feet again.”
But Brynne told how things got worse before they got better.
After going to a friend’s house in Melbourne, Australia, in May 2021, the 39-year-old was charged with selling and using the drug ice.
When Brynne was arrested, she said, “I had gone to see a friend.”
“I had just walked three feet onto his front lawn when all of a sudden we were being raided. I knew I had nothing to worry about because I didn’t have any drugs and I hadn’t done anything wrong.
“But I was accused of all of these.”
Four of the five charges that had been brought against Brynne were dropped last month.
Brynne says she is innocent, but her reputation has taken a hit.
“Sleazy drug addict”
She said, “People were sending me emails calling me a filthy drug whore and telling me to go kill myself.”
The former SAS Australia recruit told 7NEWS Spotlight that she would get messages accusing her of “getting off” because she is a “celebrity.”
A new part
At the end of last year, Brynne was having a hard time until she found out she was pregnant.
Brynne told the show, “I didn’t think I could have kids, so getting pregnant was the last thing on my mind.”
“I just thought it wouldn’t work out for me. I thought I was just getting a little bit fatter, but yeah. I guess I took a pregnancy test at home just to be sure, and it was positive. So, I went to the doctor and found out I was five months.
“When the ultrasound showed that she was healthy and perfect, it was like the best news in the world. “I was so happy to find out it was a girl,” she said.
Brynne told everyone late last year, and rumors are that she gave birth in April.
Brynne said, “The dad knows about her, but he’s not in the picture.” “And it’s one of those things where I’m happy to have her all to myself. “Maybe I’m selfish, but she can be all mine.”
