EXCLUSIVE: Gabi Grecko and Geoffrey Edelsten Call it Quits!
They’ve been married for all of four months but it seems the unconventional union that is Gabi Grecko 26, and Geoffrey Edelsten 72, has finally hit the skids.
Gabi told The Gutter Trash that she will never return to Australia after accusing her husband of being ‘in love with his secretary,’ adding: ‘We tried to work it out but we couldn’t, it’s sad, it’s over.
She added: ‘We will be filing for a divorce now. We let each other go tonight in New York, we couldn’t, we just couldn’t stay together…’
The Maxim model went on: ‘He chose her over me… He said he would rather keep her than be married to me. I just had to say enough is enough he will never understand or care if I’m hurt.’
Speaking from New York in hushed tones, Geoffrey denounced the claim he is fixated with his secretary as ‘utter fabrication,’ saying, ‘she’s just an angry young woman upset over an earlier fight we had.’
Revealing he is catching an earlier flight back to Melbourne – without Gabi – on Thursday, he added: ‘I’m coming back earlier now instead of Monday and Gabi wants to stay in New York.
‘She hates Australia and Australians and says she’s never coming back.
‘There is no truth about my secretary. She has been with me for twelve years and is an excellent PA and Gabi wanted me to fire her because they don’t see eye-to-eye – I’m not going to do that.
‘Gabi and I have been fighting about a number of things and trying to work out the future.
‘She says divorce now but let’s see what happens tomorrow.’
The colourful couple married in a rushed ceremony in a Chinese Register office on the outskirts of Melbourne in June cementing their two-year romance.
She wore a low-cut, thigh-high, full-length Diane von Furstenberg number and he, too, wore white.
But fast forward four months and The Celebrity Apprentice stars split for the fourth time since they tied the knot.
On this occasion the subject of contention is his autobiography Enigma which details the moment he lost his virginity and a sordid threesome.
Three weeks ago, viewers of Celebrity Apprentice, from which the pair have been fired in separate episodes, saw the girls’ team sell 20 copies of Geoffrey’s out of print book which they bought on eBay.
The task left Miami-born socialite Gabi sobbing and stamping her taloned heels.
‘I hate this book,’ she screamed, throwing her wedding band on the ground in tears and the pair promptly parted days after the episode aired.
Gabi jetted off to NYC declaring ‘bye bye Geoffrey’ claiming she was going to visit her cat and could not come to terms with her husband’s previous life spelled out in the paperback.
Broken-hearted Geoffrey flew to New York on Friday in a bid to patch up his marriage but it seems Gabi remains resolute that they are well and truly over.
