##police have visited the Melbourne home of healthy cooking app founder Belle Gibson amid reports her claims about having brain cancer could be false.
Two Victoria Police officers visited Gibson’s beachside apartment in #elwood home last night and spent around ten minutes inside before leaving, the Herald Sun reports.
The officers were let into the home by Gibson’s partner, who said the Whole Pantry app creator was not at home at the time.
He declined to comment on the recently published claims about Gibson’s brain cancer only saying that she had spoken to other media outlets but felt they had “misrepresented” her.
Gibson shot to fame after she established a “wellness” empire on the back of claims that she had used a healthy diet to survive a brain tumour for five years without treatment.
Yesterday the publisher of her cook book revealed that they had never investigated her claims about having cancer.
A former friend of Gibson said they had attended an “intervention” at the author’s Elwood home last year after growing suspicions about her life story and cancer claims, Fairfax Media reports.
The revelations follow news that $300,000 in profits promised by Ms Gibson to be paid to a charity was never received.
