The Brazilian's future was up in the air after he was fined for a breach of club discipline on Thursday.
Elber was handed the fine and warned as to his future conduct after accusing coach Horst Koeppel of not telling the truth about his omission from the side in the recent league game against Hertha Berlin.
Borussia have now decided to part company with the former Bayern Munich striker.
"We've decided to make a clean break," said Gladbach sporting director Peter Pander.
"We can't tolerate comments like that."
