Gabi Grecko posted this to Instagram on Monday
Grecko, who was 46 years his junior when she married the multi-millionaire in 2015, claimed she was never with Edelsten for the money and shared the post in response to a swag of ‘negative’ articles about the ex-convict.
‘I met Mr Edelsten at a hospital in Australia three years ago. He told me that Gabi is the only woman that he has ever loved and that he can never love another woman,’ the post read.
‘He also mentioned that unlike the others, she was not with him for his money and that he intends to leave her something in his last will and testament upon his passing.
‘He said Gabi never judged him and made him feel youthful and optimistic about life again.’
The post goes on to vouch for Grecko’s claims that she was not a ‘gold digger’ and ‘never leached on Mr Edelsten for his money’.
The model and rapper who now lives in New York has been active on Instagram since news of Edelsten’s death broke on Friday night.

Grecko split with Edelsten in September 2015 – just months after they met – with the Miami-born socialite jetting off to NYC.
She claimed she could not handle the details of Edelsten’s autobiography which detailed a threesome and the moment he lost his virginity.
The Melbourne entrepreneur claimed Grecko fled stateside with his DVDs, including The Firm, Lawrence of Arabia, The Client and Chariots Of Fire, $5,500 he loaned her to pay the rent in the US, a gold chain he said was worth $8,000, and second $5,500 wedding ring he gave her in New York.
She had made her first public appearance with Edelsten at AFL legend Tommy Hafey’s funeral in May that year, wearing a very busty and figure-hugging dress which was slammed as insensitive and inappropriate.
Grecko lashed out on Instagram at a follower who mocked her over the death of her ‘cash cow’.
‘We separated five years ago I support myself, my estranged ex-husband does not support me! And when I married him he was already bankrupt and I didn’t care,’ she wrote.

Grecko claimed the ugliness that followed after their split stemmed through Edelsten’s hurt at the time.
‘The avo was more of a hurt thing, he was hurt I had left and everyone responds differently. Also we did date about five months two years before we split for good.
‘I did love him, it’s weird you think @jrocknthm that I wouldn’t love him when everyone is more infatuated with his lifestyle and how unique and driven and colourful he was, you think I couldn’t love the coolest person most original in all of Australia?’
Grecko posted pictures of herself and the millionaire in happier times on Saturday.
Edelsten died on June 11, the anniversary of his wedding to Grecko.
