The estranged mother of disgraced online health “guru” Belle Gibson wants people to leave her daughter alone, saying everyone tells “little porky pies”.
Natalie Dal-Bello said it broke her heart to see her daughter being bullied months after The Whole Pantry founder admitted she falsely claimed she had cancer.
“Belle told a white lie, aged 23-and-a-half. So what?” Ms Dal-Bello said.
“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.
“When you mention the word cancer, then everyone turned like piranhas on her, like they wanted to eat her alive.
“It is time everyone moves on from this and allows Belle to grow and be a mother to her little boy. She should be left alone so she can get her life back on track.”
