Since her early 20s she has dated or wed a string of billionaires, ­entrepreneurs and financiers but never found lasting happiness.

She had a brief romance with singer Billy Joel in 1981, dated film star Kevin Costner in 1996 and was linked to actor Colin Farrell, Canadian rocker Bryan Adams and war ­photographer Scott Douglas.

But five serious ­relationships have been with men whose wealth and business empires surpass even her own.

Her first husband, French photo­grapher Gilles Bensimon, was the creative director of Elle magazine and 20 years her senior.

She dated Green Shields stamp heir Tim Jefferies then financier Arpad “Arki” Busson, with whom she has two sons – Arpad Flynn, 14, and Aurelius, 10.

After a relationship with British banker Roger Jenkins she met hotel owner and property king Soffer.

The pair split last March after two years. But in November Elle helped him recover from a near-fatal helicopter crash – and now her love life is flying again.

Elle dated millionaire Tim Jefferies, heir to the Green Shield Stamps brand, from 1993 to 1996.

Their relationship apparently broke down because of the pressures of her jet-set career, leaving Tim, now 50, heartbroken.

But the pair remain close friends and Jefferies, who was once married to Koo Stark and also dated fellow supermodel Claudia Schiffer, invited Elle to his 2008 wedding to model Malin Johansson.

French-born Arpad Busson, 50, began working in finance in the late 80s and later became a marketing ­representative for an investment firm.

In 2001 he launched his own group managing hedge funds.

After splitting from Elle he went on to have a baby with actress Uma Thurman.

Roger Jenkins – worth $ 460m

Elle dated financier Roger Jenkins for seven months in 2012.

Nicknamed “Roger the Dodger” because of the complex tax ­arrangements he’s built his reputation on, the 57-year-old Brit was credited with saving Barclays at the height of the credit crunch by securing billions from the Qatari royals.

In 2009 he was also the highest-earning ­individual for a public company on a salary of £20million.
