Controversial super surgeon Charlie Teo & horror week only seems to have gotten worse after the annual nude swimming for his charity for brain cancer was abruptly canceled.
The nude swimming of Sydney Skinny was canceled before 2020 after the fundraiser could not find a big sponsor for the event.
Teo has raised tens of thousands of dollars by encouraging people to dump their swimmers and swim naked in Sydney Harbor, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Event founder Nigel Marsh said the abrupt cancellation & # 39; his heart breaks & # 39; because the event has proved a knockout success in the past.
Mr. Marsh insisted that the cancellation of the event was not due to Teo's recent media coverage and that the Charlie Teo Foundation was still the chosen charity.
The swimming in 2019 raised $ 82,000 for the foundation where 1,600 people undressed on Mosman & # 39; s Collbers Beach.
Marsh said he tried everything to get large companies to sponsor the event, but it all failed and he cannot finance the event alone.
& # 39; It is a brilliant and unique event. The only thing that makes it great is why it's so hard to get sponsorship, "he said.
The cancellation is a new blow for the neurosurgeon this week because his second-oldest daughter Nicola Teo is facing serious criminal prosecution.
The 24-year-old allegedly brought down Jock Ross, the former leader of the Comancheros OMCG, in her LandCruiser on Wednesday afternoon.

If she is convicted, Ms. Teo can spend a lot of time in jail – far removed from the luxury life she and her sisters have become accustomed to in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
Teo has remained silent since the Nicola police ordered three charges on Wednesday.
His daughter is said to be shaken & # 39; is after the crash where Ross fights for life in the hospital.
Nicola & # 39; s LandCruiser ute would have hit Harley Davidson on Wednesday at 3.30 pm in Lower MacDonald, north of Sydney, on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old Triple Zero reportedly called immediately before Ross, 76, was flown to the hospital in a coma.
Nicola, who says her father inspired her passion for animals, recently launched her company Eastsidedogs AU.
The police claim that she was driving 200 meters on the wrong side of the road before she hit Ross.
Detectives are also investigating whether she was on her cell phone at the time of the accident and have revealed that a child was sitting next to her in the front seat.

Ross, a 12-year-old grandfather, is the former & # 39; Supreme Commander & # 39; of the Comancheros and best known for inciting the violent & # 39; Milperra Massacre & # 39;
Nicola was taken to the Windsor police station, where she was accused of driving with serious bodily injury, negligent driving with bodily injury, not staying behind the dividing line and not providing details to the police.
For the serious accusation of personal injury alone, a maximum prison sentence of seven years applies.
The Insp Orr said the charge is related to & # 39; not providing further details & # 39; to the police about what happened during the crash.
Senior police sources told Daily Mail Australia that they believed the case & # 39; open and closed & # 39; was and noted that charges were filed within hours instead of weeks.
Nicola was given conditional bail to appear at the Windsor Local Court on October 17.
Earlier this month, Teo was hit again after media reports accused him of inappropriate behavior.
The Sydney Morning Herald has published allegations of unnamed colleague & # 39; s of Dr. Teo, who claimed that he made inappropriate comments and gestures during an operation and at his home.

Dr. Teo described the article as troubling because of the lack of legitimate research, unnamed sources, and a staggering number of inaccuracies & # 39; had.
In a statement published on his website, he said the newspaper had failed to give a fair and balanced story.
& # 39; The publisher has intentionally misrepresented incorrect and inaccurate information in the public domain and has failed to report information that has been provided to them in recent days & # 39 ;, was his statement.
& # 39; It is disappointing that the publisher has chosen to report inaccurate, sensational and biased. I have asked my legal team to view the article.
& # 39; I am not the first to be subjected to this type of report and I will not be the last. I am extremely proud of everything I have achieved professionally as a surgeon in Australia and internationally, and the work of the Charlie Teo Foundation.
& # 39; I acknowledge that this would not have been possible without the support of my wonderful team, many of whom have been with me for many years. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for The Sydney Morning Herald said the publication stays with the story.

& # 39; Kate McClymont has been researching this story for many weeks: interviewing surgeons, other medical professionals, patients, their families, and investigating court records.
& # 39; Dr. Teo has been repeatedly contacted in recent weeks with requests to discuss and respond to the allegations. & # 39;
The Sydney-based neurosurgeon, 61, came in the news earlier this year after being criticized for charging high fees for his procedures – although his patients have said his life-saving skills are worth the money.
University of Sydney Henry Woo said that GoFundMe campaigns were set up by his patients to cover costs & # 39; disturbing & # 39; goods.
& Something is very wrong when a terminally ill girl with a brain tumor has to raise $ 120k for an operation that Dr. Charlie Teo has offered for $ 60-80K, & # 39; Professor Woo wrote.
Dr. Teo explained in cases where an operation cost $ 120,000, about $ 80,000 went to private hospital, while the remaining $ 40,000 was shared between himself, a radiologist, an anesthesiologist, and others.
He said he would receive about $ 8,000 to $ 15,000 himself and that the high private costs were charged because desperate interstate patients had to go outside their own public system.
