Elle Macpherson's new BF Andrew Wakefield built dream house for wife Caramel, one month before dumping her to 'find himself'
Andrew Wakefield may or may not have planned on finding himself but he knew he had to build a dream house for his wife and so he did
The controversial British doctor, Andrew Wakefield, who is currently dating Elle Macpherson invested his money to build a new house for his wife, Carmel Wakefield before he decided to split with her in order to find himself. He moved out of the house around eight months ago and since then hasn't visited it even once. However, he was spotted with Elle around the same time and the supermodel had her hand draped across his shoulders, at an awards ceremony in November.
As reported by Daily Mail, Andrew had put finishing touches on a $1.4m Tuscan-style villa that was supposed to be a new home for the couple before ending his three-decade-long marriage.
Caramel is now looking to sell the estate that Andrew had built for her. The relationship between Elle and Andrew came to light when pictures of the two kissing at an organic food market surfaced. Caramel was reportedly shocked to see the pictures. Caramel had stood by her husband throughout the controversy over her estranged husband's discredited work linking the MMR vaccine to autism.
Andrew was banned from practicing in the UK because of his unethical behavior. "They had just built the house and a month after they moved in Andrew just decided he wanted to do his own thing - and off he went," a close friend of Andrew told the tabloid. "There wasn't a big argument, he just said he was moving on. He said he wanted to find himself."
"They were married a long time so it must have come as a shock, but Carmel is doing OK. She is a wonderful person. We love her to death," the friend further added. This comes after Caramel recently defended Andrew over how he was portrayed in the film, 'The Pathological Optimist'. Caramel explained to her four children that "your father was gravely defamed," as reported by Daily Mail. She further added, "they want you to crawl into a little hole and just shut up' to which he replies 'well, that isn’t going to happen."
In the film, Andrew talks about his children as he says they "are great kids, they really are. Their biggest handicap is probably having me as a father. " The film was released in September last year, just two months before he was spotted with Elle. The documentary makers claim it looks at the "man behind the most highly controversial, intensely debated topics in modern medicine'." While Andrew's theory failed, it did cause a lot of tension in various states.
Due to his study and his claim that the MMR vaccine might cause autism led to a decline in vaccination rates in the United States, United Kingdom, and Ireland. However, this also led to an increase rise in measles and mumps which resulted in serious illness and deaths.
