The mother of the disgraced wellness blogger Belle Gibson has declared people are allowed to “tell little porky pies” as she attempted a reconciliation with her daughter and grandson.
Natalie Dal-Bello defended Gibson just two months after giving a magazine interview, saying she was “deeply hurt and incredibly upset” by her daughter’s behaviour.
Her mother has now characterised Gibson’s alleged deception over claims she had cancer and used a healthy diet to cure it as a “white lie”.
“Belle told a white lie, aged 23-and-a-half. So what?” she told the Herald Sun.
“Belle is allowed to tell little porky pies. Who the hell doesn’t tell a lie in their life? Nobody complained about Belle when she was helping people and now they want to put her under the microscope.”
