An Aussie influencer and horse-breeding heiress has been accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy.
Police say Sydney influencer and detox entrepreneur, Savannah Daisley, had intercourse with the child four times in 24 hours, last year.
Police allege the four sexual encounters occurred in the 24 hours leading up to 5pm on May 20 last year, in the same North Shore suburb where Daisley lives.
The Instagram influencer, who boasts 40,000 followers on the platform, was highly intoxicated at the time of the alleged offending, according to the police allegations tendered to the court.
Police claim a legal phone tap heard the ritzy founder of detox business Smart Cleanse admit to kissing the alleged victim.
During the conversation, Daniel Richardson, prosecuting, said Daisley had admitted to at least kissing the young person.
However, she claimed to have little recollection of the alleged offending, Mr Richardson said.
“But she says, ‘I thought you were going to call the police on me, I thought we had placed this in a little box and thrown it deep into the sea’,” Mr Richardson told the court.
“His instruction to me was the phone call was quite damning to her.
“The facts are that admissions were made that were captured on telephone intercept and it is a quite serious matter.”
The entrepreneur has been in custody since she was arrested on June 27, and the police have applied for an apprehended violence order to protect the 14-year-old complainant.

Longueville resident, Daisley, who has authored two books on health and wellness, and is the daughter of renowned horse breeder Ross Daisley, strongly denied the accusation.
Daisley’s defence lawyer, Pierre de Dassel, said the report against his client was made “in spite”.
It was an “oath vs oath” case, he said. “There is motivation around the timing of it that really affects the credibility and strength of the case,” he added.
Mr de Dassel says that she intends to plead not guilty to all charges.
Daisley was denied bail by Magistrate Jaqueline Milledge, who said the allegations were “quite disturbing”, despite her father offering to pay a surety of $10,000 (£5,700) to ensure she would return to court if she was granted conditional freedom.
Mr Daisley is well-known as the breeder of thoroughbred racehorse Choisir, which became an international champion after winning at the prestigious Royal Ascot races in England.
His daughter will remain in custody on remand for nearly two months until her next court date on August 23.
Daisley’s business was launched on the back of a popular 14-day detoxification and weight management programme focused on organic wellbeing.
The website also includes an introduction penned by Daisley which explains she was a “resident mojito girl” in her youth.
A post on Instagram refers to a previous troubled relationship with alcohol, with a recent post declaring she had spent 223 days sober.
