Elle Macpherson Splits From Billionaire Husband Jeffrey Soffer After Nearly 4 Years of Marriage

Elle Macpherson and Jeffrey Soffer have called it quits after nearly four years of marriage

Elle Macpherson and Jeffrey Soffer have called it quits after nearly four years of marriage.

A source close to Soffer confirmed the split to PEOPLE, saying simply, “Jeff and Elle have split.”

The 53-year-old Australian supermodel and wellness expert, known as “The Body,” married the Miami-based billionaire real estate developer in July 2013 after getting engaged in March 2013. Their “day wedding” ceremony took place before about 15 guests – friends and family – inside a villa at the luxury Laucala Resort in Fiji.

The pair dated for two years before splitting in March 2012 and then rekindled their romance after Soffer was injured in a 2012 helicopter crash in the Bahamas.

The Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model host was previously married to photographer Gilles Bensimon (Real Housewives star Kelly Bensimon‘s ex), and her two sons are from her relationship with ex-fiancé Arpad Busson. When Macpherson was 19, she also reportedly had a fling with Billy Joel, prior to the singer marrying Christie Brinkley – and there was some overlap between the two beauties.


Soffer had previously been linked to Gwyneth Paltrow. He “has a lot of power over women,” said a Palm Beach source after Paltrow’s split with Chris Martin in 2014. “He’s very seductive.”

A Soffer family friend said the actress, who attended the reopening of the real estate mogul’s Fontainebleau hotel in 2008, “was staying at Jeff’s house for quite a while” around that time. “Something might have come from it had she been single. But she wasn’t.”

News of their split was first reported by Page Six.
