Australian model and Sports Illustrated icon Elle Macpherson has opened up about her relationship with musician Billy Joel in the 1980s. Macpherson said that one evening, Joel kicked her out of the apartment they shared because he brought model Christie Brinkley home. Macpherson was a guest on the Bravo show Watch What Happens Live, when a fan asked Macpherson about the incident. Macpherson confirmed that she and Joel were living together in a Central Park West apartment in Manhattan when the incident occurred. She told the TV guest, “I think he was dating Christie at the time, just starting to. So yeah, I got ousted, what can I say?”
Billy says he wrote the song "Uptown Girl" for Elle and not for Christie, who was in the video.
