Gisele's billionaire Miami developer friend is ENGAGED trends now
A billionaire Miami property developer thought to be romancing recently-single Gisele Bundchen is in fact engaged to another woman, it has emerged.
Jeffrey Soffer, 55, was reported to be growing close to the Brazilian supermodel - who he knew via a friendship with her ex-husband, Tom Brady.
Yet it now emerges that Soffer is engaged to Colleen Schiff, and has been since at least November 2021, when she was referred to as his fiancee at a Las Vegas event.
Soffer is believed to have been in a relationship with another woman for several years before then.
'He's been in a serious relationship for seven years and is currently engaged,' a source told The New York Post.
Schiff is the widow of Miami real estate tycoon Steven Schiff, who died in 2017 aged 57. The pair had two children, Kylie and Neil.
Soffer was previously married to Elle Macpherson, with the pair divorcing in 2017 after four years. He has also been linked to Gwyneth Paltrow - although she insisted they were just friends - and model Molly Sims.

Gisele Bundchen, 43, denied any involvement with Soffer, insisting he was ex-husband Tom Brady's friend, not hers
Bundchen, 42, denied any relationship with Soffer.
'I have zero relationship with him in any way,' she told Vanity Fair.
'He's Tom's friend, not my friend.'
She added: 'I wouldn't be with this guy. I mean, puh-leeze. They were saying I'm with this guy, he's old, because he's got money – it's ridiculous.'
Soffer is worth an estimated $2.2 billion, while the model is worth $400 million.
Developer and hotelier Soffer, 55, was married to Australian supermodel and actress Elle Macpherson, 58, until their divorce in 2017. The pair married in Fiji in 2013
Brady and Soffer were spotted hanging out together in January, when the football star was photographed spending quality time with daughter Vivian in Miami
The friends were also pictured courtside together enjoying a WNBA game along with sports broadcaster Jim Gray and Brady's sister, Julie, in Las Vegas, Nevada, last May
Soffer and Brady have been friends for years and were seen hanging out with mutual pal David Beckham in late January
Brady and Soffer, who have been friends for several years, were spotted together in January when the football star was photographed spending quality time with daughter Vivian.
They were seen later that day hanging out in Miami with mutual pal David Beckham and his children for a night of pizza-making at Miami Slice.
In May 2021, the two friends were pictured courtside together enjoying an NBA game along with sports broadcaster Jim Gray and Brady's sister, Julie, in Las Vegas.
And when Brady was looking for a plot of land on which to build his 'forever home' with Bundchen back in 2020, he plumped for a property right next door to friend Soffer's capacious Miami mansion.
