Brynne Edelsten says she WANTED to sleep with her late ex-husband Geoffrey but it ‘never happened’ during their five year marriage – as she reveals her sadness over his lonely death aged 78
Brynne Edelsten has broken her silence following the death of her ex-husband Geoffrey Edelsten, aged 78, last week.
The US-born star married the millionaire businessman in a lavish $3.3million wedding ceremony at Melbourne‘s Crown Casino on 29 November 2009. He was 67 at the time, while she was 26.
In a bombshell interview with New Idea, Brynne revealed that the couple never once slept together during their five year marriage and while she wanted to consummate the marriage, it ‘wasn’t my decision’.

‘It was something we never really spoke about,’ she said. ‘I assumed we were waiting for marriage, but then it didn’t happen. I thought maybe it was all the medication he was on.
‘After so long you kind of forgot about it. It was confusing to me, because in a marriage that’s what you do.’
She went on to say that to this day, she ‘doesn’t really understand’ why sex was never on the table for the couple.

He went on to marry Gabi Grecko one year after he and Brynne separated.
While they split months later, Gabi recently claimed they were still married at the time of his death.
While a week before his passing Geoffrey told Daily Mail Australia that he hadn’t spoken to Brynne in two years, the socialite admits she was ‘really shocked’ to hear of his passing.
He was found dead in his Melbourne apartment by his cleaner, with Brynne adding that she hopes he died peacefully ‘in his sleep’.
