A publicist for Brynne Edelsten has confirmed the socialite's split with husband Geoffrey, citing "insurmountable issues" as the reason behind the marriage breakdown

News broke earlier this week that the colourful couple, below, had called it quits on their four-year romance after it was revealed in 2012 the medical entrepreneur had enjoyed a fling with an American woman during the marriage.

While the pair were initially said to be "blindsided" when reports of the split emerged, Brynne's manager John Scott has now confirmed the separation.

"They have unfortunately separated and Geoffrey is overseas at the moment," Scott said.

"They are still living under the same roof, but separately. They are hoping to work through this with a degree of privacy."

Scott said that Brynne, an Arizona-raised former cocktail waitress, planned to stay in Australia as "she's made a great life here".

The 30-year-old, who stepped out solo on New Year's Eve, is reportedly too distraught to comment on the news but the public will be seeing more of her soon with her TV show, My Bedazzled Life, slated to return to Seven this year.

While the network has not confirmed a date for the reality show's second season, Scott said it was still going ahead.
