LATEST: Model JESSIE LEONARD has hooked up with Star Wars actor Joel Edgerton weeks after model KATE MOSS stole her boyfriend.

The 23-year-old beauty has returned to her native Sydney, Australia, to escape the British paparazzi and mend her broken heart after her live-in boyfriend, JAMIE BURKE, ran off with Moss.

The model met new beau Edgerton at a birthday party with a crowd of Sydney's A-list actors, including Rachel Griffiths, on 14 January (06) - and ended up leaving the bash with him.

Leonard recently told all to a British tabloid, saying she was "desperately in love" with Burke, a 20-year-old bartender, until she discovered he had run off with Moss, via a late-night news report.
