Police in Western Australia have dropped a drug possession charge against Brynne Edelsten.

The Melbourne socialite appeared in a Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday where prosecutors told the court that the charge against the 32-year-old was being discontinued.

The blonde ex-wife of businessman Geoffrey Edelsten, 72, was accused of possessing an ecstasy tablet earlier this year and was due to stand trial over the incident on Christmas Eve, after pleading not guilty to the charge in July.

According to ABC News the blonde beauty, who arrived in a black lace shift dress and matching gloves, spoke to the waiting media outside, saying: ‘I don’t condone the use of drugs’.

‘I don’t use drugs and that’s what’s been proven today,’ she said, adding: ‘I’m happy to put this behind me and that the truth has come out.

Wanting to be a good role model, the socialite explained: ‘I’m proud of my choices as a person,’

‘I have two little sisters who are 15 an 16 and they mean the world to me and I try to set a good example for them, and even just for them, let alone anyone else.’

Back in July, the American-born socialite appeared on Studio 10 speaking of her dismay at the incident in June.

While no circumstances surrounding the drugs charge have been released, the guest co-host admitted to the panel: ‘I am so angry about this.’

The Melbourne identity also told the group: ‘I’m not allowed to say much, obviously, but I am absolutely fighting these charges.

‘I’m so angry and so upset because there’s people that are really disappointed right now. I’m supposed to be a role model and I do not condone drugs.

‘And I’m absolutely fighting these charges and I will be vindicated in that.’

The US-born beauty is best known for her marriage to the Australian businessman and medical entrepreneur 40 years her senior.

Brynne and Geoffrey were wed in a lavish $3 million ceremony at Melbourne’s Crown hotel in November 2009 but split in January 2014.

Their four year marriage ended in a bitter divorce, which was granted by the courts in June 2015.

The day after their divorce went through Geoff married his 26-year-old American girlfriend Gabi Grecko but the pair separated just months later.
