‘It’s a gut-wrenching experience’: Claims Elle Macpherson’s former business partner Andrea Horwood was ‘locked out of her office’ during a legal battle over the wellness brand

Elle Macpherson’s former business partner Andrea Horwood was locked out of her office during a stoush over the pair’s wellness brand, a report claims. 

Horwood, founder and creator of WelleCo, which carries the Super Elixir line of supplements endorsed by Macpherson, is reportedly engaged in a legal battle with the supermodel. 

The businesswoman told Private Sydney on Friday that she was ‘sacked and ‘locked out’ of her own office in late November.

‘It’s a gut-wrenching experience to have this done to me and the business I founded and created, which has become such a success,’ Andrea said. 

Macpherson’s private company Rolico is being sued as a result of the alleged incident. 

The model, 54, initially was given 50 per cent share in the business, in exchange for promoting the products.

WelleCo grew into a worldwide $21 million business selling health supplements and wellness products. 

Private Sydney reported that Horwood claimed that Macpherson ‘reneged’ on promises to give her more shares in the company, and she now faces mortgaging her own home to fund legal bills estimated to be $1.2 million. 

The column claimed the pair were ‘best friends’ who had a ‘tempestuous’ relationship that often left the model ‘in tears’.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Macpherson for comment. 

In 2014, Macpherson introduced The Super Elixir by WelleCo, a range of alkalising food supplements, which she described as her ‘drug’.

The new product was formulated specially for the star over many years by Dr Simone Laubscher, a London Harley Street nutritional doctor specialising in disease prevention.

The powder, which can be sprinkled over salads or mixed into juices and smoothies, claims to support healthy nutrition and ensure the body is working to its optimum.

Packed with 45 key ingredients including alkalising super greens, Chinese herbs and the maitake mushroom, Elle claims that just 10g of the powder daily contains all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements to assist wellness and vitality.

‘I’ve spent years tweaking it and refining it and now the recipe works so beautifully. After a few weeks, my body went into cruise mode and I felt uplifted, lost weight, didn’t get sick and didn’t crave sugar,’ the Australian catwalk queen told the MailOnline in London at the time.

‘My body hummed along and functioned properly.’  

The supplements run between $35 and $195 for a supply, which Macpherson told Mail on Sunday ‘is an investment but it’s cheaper than a good face cream’.
