Elle Macpherson dating convicted cocaine smugglerOctober 27th, 2008 - 5:50 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Oct 27 (ANI): Aussie supermodel Elle Macpherson has a new man in her life, Brian John Burgess, 56, who happens to be a convicted cocaine smuggler.
Burgess, who has a removal company in London called Aussie Man&Van, helped the 44-year-old model move from Notting Hill, West London, to nearby Ladbroke Grove, and became friendly with her.
He had been found guilty of drug trafficking by the NSW District Court in 1996, and sentenced to four years jail after he attempted to smuggle 2kg of cocaine from the US inside hollowed-out books.
The news about the relationship between the two came up when Burgess, who was looking at new Jaguars in a showroom in Chelsea, mentioned it.
The salesman was an Aussie and they were getting on great, News.com.au quoted an onlooker as having told News of the World.
Brian was saying how he had been seeing a new girlfriend for a few weeks.
He added, I”ve got to go, she’’s picking me up. Then Elle turns up in her car. I couldn”t believe it, the onlooker added.
Aussie Man&Van manager John Hess last night said Burgess conviction was all in the past. (ANI)
