What happened to Justin Hemmes’ girlfriend? Model Madeline Holtznagel cuts her hair, dyes it blonde and deletes her Instagram account after dating billionaire pub baron
Madeline Holtznagel has introduced a dramatic new look.
Billionaire Justin Hemmes’ model girlfriend looked almost unrecognizable as she stepped out with boyfriend Jodi Gordon on Thursday during Afterpay Australian Fashion Week.
The 24-year-old had her brown hair cropped noticeably short and dyed a striking shade of platinum blonde.

She was styled in a cream blazer, matching trousers and a glittering silver bra.
Madeline, Simone Holtnagel’s younger sister, recently raised eyebrows by deleting her Instagram account.
It’s a surprising move for the emerging model, as most models in the industry use social media for exposure and to post job openings.

Madeline has been dating the 48-year-old billionaire baron for some time and she also spent a lockdown at his mansion in the Vaucluse last year.
She now reportedly lives in a Coogee penthouse that he owns.
The couple have been spotted in Sydney several times recently, after confirming their romance.

Madeline lifted the lid on their relationship last October, telling The Sydney Morning Herald that she had yet to introduce Justin to her parents.
‘My parents and my sister Anna haven’t met him yet, but [her other sister] Simone was introduced to him and really liked him,” she said.
She kept tight-lipped about how long she and Justin had been dating, but hinted that they’d been seeing each other longer than reported.

Megan and Justin are supposed to be good friends. They clearly had a lot of fun dancing to Finally by CeCe Peniston alongside other revelers and socialites.
The couple’s embrace was brief and they danced separately for most of the video.
Justin and Madeline were last photographed together at the Million Dollar Beard Ball on May 13.
