It’s over: Elle Macpherson and Jeff Soffer have split, reports Page Six.

The Aussie supermodel and the billionaire real estate developer were married in 2013 in Fiji.

“She has left their house at Indian Creek in Miami with her kids, and is looking for her own house in Miami,” an insider tells the publication. Macpherson has two sons, Flynn and Aurelius Cy, with her ex, financier Arpad Busson.

What drove them apart?

“He has been linked to some other women, but insists they are just friends,” the source added.

A friend of Soffer’s confirmed the news to People; Macpherson hinted at the situation on Instagram over the weekend with the cryptic post, “Grow through what you go through.”

 

#goals.

The Daily Mail has pics of the ex couple’s opulent mansion. But we are sure Elle will find an equally fabulous place to live. The question is: will she remain in Miami? Her ex is based in London and they share custody so it will be interesting to see since she has been involved in many philanthropic causes over the years while living here.

In 2015, the statuesque stunner dubbed “The Body” was honored by The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade and was also emcee at their Power of the Purse Luncheon.

“As a fierce advocate for women’s and children’s rights and a true role model, we are honored to have Ms. Macpherson as the Master of Ceremonies at this year’s luncheon,” Marilyn March, executive director of The Women’s Fund told The Miami Herald at the time.

The 53 year old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue legend also founded a wellness supplement company called Welleco.

Soffer’s family is huge in the philanthropic community as well. Last month, they broke ground on an athletic practice facility at the University of Miami. The real estate developer and his siblings made a $14 million commitment to the project in honor of their mother Carol, a longtime Hurricanes fan. The Carol Soffer Football Indoor Practice Facility began construction in May.

Macpherson and Soffer began dating in 2008, soon after Soffer’s major redevelopment of the Fontainebleau.

Last year, all seemed well with their blended family (Soffer has three kids with his ex).

“We have a deep respect for each other’s profound commitment to parenting, so we would both probably say that the children come first,’ Elle told Stellar magazine.

In 2014, she told Ocean Drive: “My greatest gift is my husband.”
