SHE has finalised her divorce with a settlement worth nearly $80 million … and now Elle Macpherson has a new man in her life.

But he has quite the reputation.

The Australian supermodel and businesswoman, 54, has been photographed looking cosy with discredited British doctor and controversial anti-vaxx campaigner Andrew Wakefield, 61.

The couple were photographed flaunting some serious PDA at a market in Miami, where Macpherson is based.

“The Body” has recently finalised her divorce from ex-husband, billionaire Jeffrey Soffer, with a $53 million cash settlement and a $26 million property, according to the Daily Mail.

But her Texas-born British-raised new suitor — who was banned from practising medicine in 2010 — is raising eyebrows.

Wakefield is a key player in the controversial anti-vaxxer movement, and was found to have falsely linked measles, mumps and rubella vaccines to autism, Daily Mail reports.

The new couple were photographed kissing at Glaser’s organic farm in Miami on Friday, as they shopped for fresh produce.

It’s not the first time they have been seen together. Macpherson was on hand to support her new beau at the Doctors Who Rock awards in November last year.

After he published a controversial paper in 1998, vaccination levels dropped dramatically in the UK (from about 90 per cent to 70 per cent). His theories were discredited in 2004 after they were found to be based on “false evidence”.

While he cannot practice medicine in the UK, Wakefield — who has publicly supported President Donald Trump — now promotes his heavily criticised anti-vaccination views across the US.

Macpherson’s choice of suitor seems to contradict her famously super-healthy lifestyle, which includes following a vegan alkaline diet.

“I do my best to stick to my morning ritual of meditation and introspection wherever I am,” Macpherson told perthnow.com.au.

“It helps set the tone for the day and the routine is reassuring. For me, inspiration comes from a place of simply being.

“You need space and time for contemplation in this busy world to allow a download of ideas.”

The mother-of-two has been married twice — to Soffer for four years (ending in 2017) and French fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon for three years until 1989.

Macpherson has two sons, Arpad Flynn Busson, 20, and Aurelius Cy Busson, 15, to ex-boyfriend, French financier Arpad Busson.

Macpherson has never commented publicly on the topic of vaccination.
