Suzi Taylor surrendered herself after the police issued an arrest warrant when she did not appear in court earlier this week.
The order was canceled after the former The Block participant’s lawyer stated that it was a misunderstanding and that Taylor simply confused two separate hearings.
The 49-year-old was scheduled to appear in two different courts at the same time, her lawyer claimed, insisting that no further charges were made for not appearing in court or breaching bail, The Courier Mail reported.
Taylor, who won $ 349,000 in the Block 11 season with friend Yvonne Cozier, is accused of luring a Tinder date to her apartment in Brisbane and then beating him when he refused to hand over his bank details in October last year.
Out of court, her lawyer said that Taylor had a “chaotic life” lately and tried to run a new magazine.
“She accepts that she has had a somewhat chaotic life in recent weeks, but has now taken steps to resolve that,” he said.
The 49-year-old’s lawyers claimed that her failure to attend the hearing was a misunderstanding because she was mentioned to appear before two courts at the same time
“She sat down and gave me really clear instructions to fight her indictment.”
Taylor reappears in court on March 18.
The former model was released on strict bail to live with her cousin on the Gold Coast, but was arrested in January after she went missing.
A court heard earlier that Taylor left the house on Christmas Day to visit her children and stayed in half a house.
Taylor’s lawyer told the court that her cousin “rattled” her for the police because she was jealous of those who looked better in jeans.
Magistrate Pamela Dowse fined Taylor $ 300 after being convicted twice of breaching the bail but not recording a conviction.
Taylor told the waiting media: “I lost a bit of weight in prison, so I needed a new pair of jeans” while she walked around in January.
The former Penthouse Pet was mentioned to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Roma Street for charges, including common attacks and bail violation.
But she would also appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court 20 on George St to be charged for driving without a license, in violation of a police requirement or direction, driving under the influence, impeding police, bail violation, deprivation of liberty, extortion and possessing dangerous drugs .
The order was issued for two counts of bail breach, with Taylor again appearing in court on March 9
Taylor, who won $ 349,000 with friend Yvonne Cozier in season 11 of Nine’s hit reality series, is accused of luring a Tinder date to her luxury apartment in Brisbane and then beating him when he refused to give his bank details in October last year hand over.
The Courier Mail reported that Taylor had appeared in court 20 on Monday, but the order was issued by the magistrate in courtroom 1 when she did not arrive.
The police claim that Taylor’s attack was motivated by having to pay off “rebels and bikies” who were after her for money.
After discovering that her 33-year-old victim had no cash, the police claimed she said she needed to pay off.
She would have called on her roommate and co-accused, Ali Ebrahimi, to come and help her, who quickly tied up the man with a telephone charger.
Together with Taylor, he is accused of beating the victim while demanding the pin code to his phone to transfer money.
Taylor would have said to Ebrahimi: ‘No, he’s not going anywhere, he’s been here for hours now. I have to pay bills, rebels and bikies come to my house to chase me for money, so I won’t let him go before I get my money. “
The former Penthouse Pet and nude model denied having links with bike walks or paying money to them.
Taylor was noted to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on in Roma Street for charges including common assault and bail violation on Monday, but she was also set to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court 20 on George Street for other charges
Legal documents claim that midnight collaboration on October 29 turned sour after the unsuspecting man walked in the door.
Taylor had invited him for a drink through a message on another dating app, Plenty of Fish, and soon told them to “take it into the bedroom.”
While they were kissing on her bed, Taylor – who knew the man as “Katie” – turned off her top to expose her breasts and then claimed her claim.
“If you want to continue, you have to cough up some money … This is what I do for a living and my time is my money,” she said.
In his statement submitted to the court, the man said that he was blinded by this claim because he thought the meeting was a connection and not a prostitute.
“With this comment, I believe Katie implied that I had to pay her for sex. This comment shocked me completely, and I said, “I don’t pay anything,” he told the police.
