Gibson was not in court and will be punished at a later date.

"What a blessed week!"

"Ms Gibson's explanations are no more than claims or assertions", Mortimer said.

"I don't know if it was the short month of February or if I lost count and confused myself but i thought today was my two week mark of full MFS".

However, she added that there was no evidence to suggest that Gibson never believed she had cancer.

Well, it looks like cancer fraudsterBelle Gibson is back at it again, spruiking highly questionable miracle cures even as a judgement on her lies about curing brain cancer loom in court.

Ten months after Victoria's consumer watchdog started legal action against Gibson, Justice Debra Mortimer is due to hand down her judgment on Wednesday.

Since learning of her history, some members of the Master Fast System Facebook group have turned on Gibson, calling her a "liar" and feeling "deceived".

Belle Gibson then claimed that she would donate her $300,000 of her earnings to charity.

"I felt incredible all day".

Gibson has written that she is now following the fad health cleansing program Master Fast System, promoting its supposed benefits on the diet's private Facebook club. The award was later revoked.


Ms Gibson hasn't showed up in court for the ruling and had not attended previous hearings.

But in 2015, she admitted to an Australian magazine that she had made it all up.

"No. None of it's true", she told The Weekly. Elle Australia declared her 2014's "most inspiring person". "I just think [speaking out] was the responsible thing to do".

The blogger used her company and its name "as a vehicle to promote herself, and to promote the goods and services she sought to sell, on the basis of her story about surviving cancer", Mortimer found.

"Her brother is not autistic and she's barely done a minute's housework in her life", she said. When he gave me medication, I was told that it was oral chemotherapy.

Mrs Dal-Bello said she had not been in touch with her estranged daughter for years and was unaware of her success as a wellness blogger. I feel so blessed. thank you'. She had a heart problem growing up, but that was it. Gibson could face a $1 million fine. Penguin published a cookbook based on Gibson's advice and planned to release it in the U.S. and UK.

Ms Gibson also told Australian Women's Weeklyshe was forced to care for her mother, who suffered multiple sclerosis, when she was as young as five-years-old.

"I'm going to get tested for ovarian cancer".

Asked outright if she has, or ever had cancer, she said "No".

She claimed the naturopath, who she said was also a doctor, had diagnosed her with other cancers, including of the spleen, uterus and liver.

Most allegations brought forward by Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) were proven, though not entirely, the Federal Court heard.
