While her estranged husband Geoffrey does the media rounds with his new squeeze Gabi Grecko, Brynne Edelsten seems eager to show off her blossoming love too.

The socialite has spoken out for the first time about her burgeoning relationship with toy boy Cemre Volkan, aka Big Red Ra, who she has been dating for the past two months.

At 23, business broker and personal trainer Volkan is a world away from 71-year-old millionaire Geoffrey, who announced his engagement to Grecko last week in a media blitz.

Brynne admitted she was hesitant to get into a new relationship so soon after her marriage breakdown but her new man was "easy" to be around".

The US-born blonde, 31, told New Idea: "We go out and he looks after me.

"He's very protective of me, which is kind of nice. I like that he's more of a manly man and he can help me around the house."

Volkan said the pair first met when Brynne was still married and, after the split, he fell in love with her "humble and easygoing" attitude.

"The Brynne I've got to know is the real one," he said.

"I guess I met Brynne Gordon, not Brynne Edelsten."

However, Volkan's ex-fiancee Samantha Corke is telling a different story about her former flame, revealing he was convicted of her unlawful assault last year.

In the attack, Corke sustained a neck injury and said she "thought he was going to kill" her.

The matter was brought before a Melbourne Magistrates Court in December where he pleaded guilty to the charges and was fined.

"If I don't speak up and something happens to Brynne, I would feel responsible," Corke told Woman's Day.

"He's a very jealous man and Brynne seems like a confident, outgoing person - like I used to be."
