Belle Gibson’s publisher has pulled her book from Australian shelves following accusations she faked her terminal brain cancer.
Penguin Books – who publishes Ms Gibson’s The Whole Pantry recipe book – shared the news with Daily Mail Australia via an email statement on Monday.
The book was written in conjunction with her hugely successful app of the same name, which focuses on health, wellness and lifestyle.
‘Despite our best endeavours, Penguin Books has not received sufficient explanation from Ms Gibson, author of The Whole Pantry recipe book, in response to recent allegations,’ the publisher said.
‘As such, we have been left with no other option but to stop supplying the book in Australia.’
‘We remain hopeful that we will receive the formal assurances we have requested in the coming days.’
This follows Ms Gibson hitting back at the friends who have spoken publicly about her as old photos emerged of her enjoying alcohol.
In a long Facebook post, the Australian blogger told those who have spoken out about her to ‘make yourself invisible to me, and my life.’
The health fanatic shot to social media fame after claiming she had managed to ward off a terminal brain cancer diagnosis simply through eating well and using a natural and holistic approach to life.
