wippa’s stalker hell

Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli is battling a secret stalker nightmare off the airwaves. One female listener is allegedly obsessed and Wippa has been forced to install extreme security measures at home to keep his family safe.“He’s a pretty easygoing guy, but this has shaken him,” says a source. “It’s become serious very quickly and who knows what this stalker will do next.” The ‘stalker’ reportedly gate-crashed public events and bombarded him with unwanted messages. New Idea can also reveal that the police are briefing the radio host on how to handle any face-to-face encounters. “She does whatever she can to get close to him,” says the insider. “That’s included sneaking into industry events.” Wippa recently announced he is expecting his third child with wife Lisa.

Former Home and Away star Joel McIlroy is suffering from Huntington’s disease, it has been revealed in court.

Kate Ritchie’s husband Stuart Webb has been banned from approaching her for two more weeks after a temporary Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) was extended in court.
