MEGA blogger in hiding Belle Gibson encouraged people against vaccinating their children and backed medical cannabis, as new details about her childhood emerge.
Friends say she was too “embarrassed” to allow them to visit her childhood home, believed to be in Wynnum, in outer-eastern Brisbane.
The 23-year-old founder of popular wellness app and book The Whole Pantry has deleted all references to her health on social media after it emerged she may never have suffered from a range of illnesses she claimed to have beaten.
An old school friend, who wished to remain anonymous, said Ms Gibson was always posting to her friends about the dangers of vaccinating your children.
“She was always posting things saying that vaccinations were bad,” the friend said.
“She would just repost information she found and would really push it hard.”
The pair attended Wynnum State High School where they shared a drama class.
“She had a brother that was autistic and morbidly obese and was picked on a lot.
“I remember asking her if I could come over to her house after school but she was always quick to say no.”
The friend believed she may have been embarrassed about where she lived.
