A controversial heiress and wellness guru is set to battle claims she had sex with a 14-year-old boy at trial.
Savannah Daisley has pleaded not guilty to allegations she had sex with a teenage boy in late May 2021.
She did not appear in Sydney’s Downing Centre District Court on Thursday when her solicitor Bryan Wrench said the trial was ready to go ahead on Monday.
It is expected to go for seven days, Mr Wrench told the court.
Police allege the 46-year-old gave a boy alcohol before she allegedly had sex with him, the court has previously been told.
Ms Daisley, the daughter of champion horse breeder Ross Daisley, pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a child under 16.
It’s alleged she spoke to the teen over the phone and instructed him to stay quiet, the court has been told previously.
Ms Daisley was previously bailed on a string of conditions after posting a $100,000 surety.
As part of her conditional bail, she must live with her parents in the Southern Highlands, not contact any prosecution witness and not take alcohol or drugs unless prescribed by a doctor.
Ms Daisley runs a celebrity-endorsed business called Smart Cleanse.
In September, she used Instagram to tell her 31,000-plus followers that she was facing “adversity” in her life.
“Hey beautiful souls … I’m sharing a story that taught me to embrace adversity as a gateway to becoming the best version of yourself,” she said.
“It’s a journey of getting stronger, fitter, more resilient, and healthier against all odds. Life often surprises us with its twists and turns, right? Sometimes unjust.
“About a year ago, I faced a storm of personal challenges Instead of feeling constant heartache, at a certain point I had a bit of an awakening and decided to see adversity as an invitation to grow.
“I searched for the gifts within all the pain and I’m so grateful I did.”
Ms Daisley will face court on Monday for her trial.
