‘He wanted half custody. He does not like the dog, it was just something he wanted to hold over my head.

‘Juddy is cleaner than most people but if Geoff would pat Juddy he would have to go and wash his hands right after. He’s just not a dog person and Juddy does not really like Geoff either to be honest.’  

Luckily, the socialite kept possession of the dog, who she still has.

Geoffrey and Brynne’s relationship was captured in a short-loved reality TV show called Brynne: My Bedazzled Life from 2012 to 2014. 

The relationship lasted five years before Brynne had enough of her ‘publicity-obsessed’ husband, claiming it was ‘a very lonely marriage’.  

The couple called it quits, separating in 2014 and finalising their divorce in April 2015.

Edelsten, who died in Melbourne aged 78 on June 11, was a brilliant but disgraced medical entrepreneur and one of Australia’s great self-publicists. 

His last two years were believed to have been relatively quiet, increasingly spent as a recluse in the Balencea Apartments on St Kilda Road.

As his health faded, Edelsten had few visitors and is believed to have been found in his apartment by his cleaner. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
