PR Queen Roxy Jacenko LOSES court bid to have an AVO eliminated against ‘fan’, claiming there was spray paint on the walls of her Sydney office
- Sydney PR Queen Roxy Jacenko has failed in her attempt to get an AVO against a fan
- Mrs. Jacenko requested the restraining order against Anthony Hess on Thursday
- She claimed after a run-in during an event that Mr. Hess had sprayed paint splashes in her office
- Hess denied painting the phrase “Roxy is a c ** t” on her office wall in Paddington
Roxy Jacenko did not succeed in winning a restraining order against a man who, according to her ‘Roxy is a c ** t’, was sprayed on the wall of her office.
The PR agent claimed clothing vendor Anthony Hess, 39, abused her at an event in February and was so resentful that he destroyed her office in Sydney as a retribution and let her live in fear.
Hess denied spraying the offensive graffiti and claiming he just wanted to leave the seminar after homophobic harassment by two women.
He claimed that Mrs. Jacenko had ‘set him up’ to create drama for her TV program I Am Roxy by putting the two women close to him, knowing that they would abuse him.
The pair went on Thursday to the local Downing Center Court in Sydney with Mrs. Jacenko who saw an arrest for arrested violence (AVO) against Mr. Hess.

Magistrate Allison Hawkins said she didn’t think Mr. Hess had sprayed the graffiti and that Mrs. Jacenko’s report was exaggerated.
The court heard that the conflict began at one of Jacenko’s “Conversations” events worth $ 500 per head when Mr. Hess had a fight with two women.
One of those women claimed in court last year that Mr. Hess called them “distant bush pigs,” which he denied.
Hess told the court after this quarrel that he told Mrs. Jacenko’s assistant Mason Brown “whether they are leaving or [my friend and I do], but they were promised to be far apart.
He soon realized, however, that he was directly in front of the two women, who he said had ‘shaken water’ and made homophobic remarks.
After about 10 minutes, he and his friend decided to leave and met Mrs. Jacenko on the way out, where Mr. Hess claimed she attacked him.
“She came to me like a steam train,” he told the court.
Mrs. Jacenko claimed that she was just trying to spread the situation and have him leave the event.

James Jacenko’s lawyer, Greg James QC, said the incident left Hess “resentment” for his client, leaving him to paint the offensive graffiti at her Paddington office two months later.
Mr. Hess said he didn’t even know where her Sweaty Betty PR office was and that he was currently sleeping in a friend’s house on Oxford Street a 10-minute drive away.
“That’s not my style. Gays don’t do graffiti, “he told the court.
He denied that he had any resentment towards Mrs. Jacenko about the incident.
“To be honest, I am too busy with jetsetting around the world to worry about Roxy and what she does,” he said.
