Meanwhile, the properties are all a far cry from the multi-million dollar beachfront home in Sydney’s Bondi, ex-fiancé James Packer once gifted her.

Tziporah made headlines in 1996 when she became engaged to the billionaire media mogul, however that union was not to last, with the pair calling off the engagement in 1998 after five years together.   

It was reported at the time by The Daily Telegraph that James gave her a $2.7 million Bondi apartment, however she later sold the apartment.

Speaking to Woman’s Day in 2016, Tziporah admitted that she sometimes regrets her decision to leave Australia after her relationship with James ended.

‘Sometimes I think I should have stayed in Australia and battled it out a bit,’ she admitted. ‘But I was devastated and I felt like he had all the cards.’ 

The former ’90s model and budding actress moved from Australia to Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, where she converted to Judaism, changing her name to Tziporah Malkah Bat Israel. 

But her once-large bank balance dwindled when she had been ripped off in a $2 million real estate scam some years ago. 

Tziporah revealed to The Project last year that she found herself homeless upon returning to Australia in 2010.

‘I didn’t know anything about homelessness so I thought I had to sleep under a bush so I Googled “Homelessness Melbourne,’ she said.   

After keeping out of the limelight, Tziporah made a triumphant return as a contestant on last year’s reality show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
