It's over: Brynne and Geoffrey Edleston split.

THE bizarre love story of disgraced elderly millionaire Geoffrey Edelsten and his busty blond wife Brynne has ended where it began - in the public spotlight.

Four years after the marriage between the 70-year-old Melbourne-based medico and the 40-year-old US born cocktail waitress made headlines, the pair has confirmed they are headed for divorce.

During their time together Brynne's daring wardrobe and extravagant lifestyle provided regular fodder for gossip magazines, scored her a role on Dancing with the Stars and opened the door to a reality show which was axed almost immediately.

Last year, she was forced to respond to claims her husband had romanced a woman online and taken her on an overseas getaway.

Geoffrey Edlesten was once worth more than $100million but Fairfax media reports he has filed for bankruptcy.

Brynne is currently living on her own in the couple's Melbourne apartment.

Her publicist confirmed she separated from her husband before Christmas and planned to stay in Australia.
