So sad.

Police report that model Annalise Braakensiek has tragically passed away at her Sydney home.

The 46-year-old was found dead in her Potts Point apartment around 3:30pm Sunday after family and friends became concerned about her wellbeing.

The model had reportedly been struggling after separating from husband Danny Goldberg, a stockbroker, last year.

 Annalise shared her struggles on an Instagram post from December 15:

“Everything seems to feel twisted and upside down at the moment... am I right?!!!! Life’s challenges have been deep, dark, difficult, demanding and down right scary lately. For me and so many others I know. But today is a new day,” she wrote. 

“I’ve also had some of the best jobs, travels and experiences of my life this year for which I’m THAT grateful. So, here’s to happiness and light, endless possibilities and new beginnings!!!!”

Police report there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and they will prepare a report for the coroner.

If you or someone you know is struggling, help is available.
