Elle Macpherson shocked fans when news hit that she's dating controversial anti-vaccine doctor Andrew Wakefield, and now, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the deadbeat doc may be dating the supermodel for "all the wrong reasons."
A close friend of the infamous doctor's estranged wife Carmel says she was completely blindsided by Andrew's abrupt decision to split and is convinced he's using the blonde bombshell to make it in the movie business.
The insider revealed he left his Austin, Texas home with his wife for a chance at making it in Hollywood!
"She told me that he’d left Austin and moved to Hollywood to make films," the pal admitted.
"Carmel is a lovely lady who stuck by her man through some heavy stuff," the insider said. "You can guess how she feels after years of supporting Andrew."
Last week, Andrew, 61 — who only separated from his wife Carmel Wakefield in April — was caught smooching with Macpherson, 54, at a mini market in Miami. But earlier this year, the ousted UK doctor was seen smiling alongside his wife of over 20 years, Carmel, and their three children.
In 2010, Andrew's medical license was revoked in the UK following unethical medical behavior. The disgraced doctor was banned from practicing medicine following a paper he published linking vaccines to autism. He was also slammed for providing false research and allegedly conducting unnecessary and invasive procedures on children.
He later moved to Houston with his family up until his separation from Carmel. His main source of income had derived from various speaking engagements.
But it looks like he won't need to worry about money any longer.
Macpherson herself finalized her own split with a divorce settlement worth nearly $80 million. She had been married to billionaire Jeffrey Soffer since 2013.
