The fake wellness guru was summoned last month to appear in the Federal Court on Tuesday for examination of her financial affairs following her non-compliance.
She has already been warned she faces jail time for failing to pay the penalty, imposed on her in 2017 by Federal Court Justice Debra Mortimer, for five breaches of consumer laws.
Inside, her barrister Andrew Tregardh told the court he hoped the matter could be dealt with today, reported Daily Mail.
“My client doesn't have unlimited resources to pay for lawyers to assist her in this endeavour,” he said. “She can't afford to come back.”
In February, Gibson came under fire after she allegedly spent $15,000 on a luxury African safari instead of paying her fine.
Belle’s web of lies began in 2013 when she launched her Instagram account and Whole Pantry blog, where she pretended to cure herself of brain cancer by fake claims of healthy living.
Her scam was revealed in 2015 by Women’s Weekly, who published an article where belle declared “none of it’s true”.
Neither her cancer diagnosis, nor her 'wellness cures', were real.
