    It didn't say "if it involves women or children they will be stood down". The key word is discretion.

    Since the person named in the charges as the victim does not in fact exist, police will have little alternative but to drop the charges.

    What. The. Actual. f**k?!

    There are some inconsistencies and baffling reports by media...

    They call her the “ex-girlfriend” but further on they say, “He will allege he saw Del Busso once after the pair met on social media in 2018, only to be told three months later she was pregnant with twins,” which makes it sound like he met (and copulated) with her once. Pretty sure this has been reported elsewhere also. But wasn’t it also reported they met in Melbourne? Unless that was the first in-person meeting.

    Anyway, there’s also the three alleged pregnancies. Josh may be dumb but surely he knows how babies are made. That’s at least three occasions he slept with her.

    And the kicker for me, he makes a gender reveal video with her, which is bad enough on it’s own, but she’s supposedly pregnant at the time?! Well unless they were estranged at the time and only met to make this video, how the hell did he not know the bump was fake? And as if you’d want to do such a thing if you weren’t in a loving relationship with them. AND, that’s also assuming he didn’t think something was up all the other times he saw her naked. Bizarre.

    There’s something fishy about the whole thing and it’s not just on her end.

    Yep, that baby bump photo with him holding the ball?

    There's a lot to unpack there.

    I'm starting to suspect Josh might not be the sharpest tool in the shed.

    I feel sorry for him for getting put through the ringer, but gee it’s difficult to understand how it could have happened to anyone with a brain.

    I think they got together once. Then she rocked up a few months later and told him she was pregnant and they then started a relationship. They had two failed pregnancies and then here we are.

    Interestingly she denied being the person in the video

    So you have met him?

    Or just judge from afar?

    You could be Todd.

    They can both be true, you know.

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/12/07...allenges-of-fatherhood-and-rebuilding-career/

    According to this old article he was in Melbourne during September 2018 for some rehab which is when he presumably banged her, then finds out she is pregnant sometime in October when she calls him up about it, and sometime between then and December (when the gender reveal video is posted) she tells him she's having twins.

    Edit: And here we go, she sent him an Instagram message in September 2018.

    https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw...s-amid-catfishing-claims-20200208-p53z0b.html

    Not sure what you're trying to say here. It seems to me that Josh believes he is in a relationship with her. He was pretty excited after the first allegedly fake pregnancy and talking about yearning to be a dad, so why wouldn't he try again?

    Well we know that she was living in Melbourne and he was living in Sydney, and he talked about moving her up to Sydney to live with him. It's not clear if and when she actually did.

    The first fake pregnancy appears to have resulted in "miscarriage" during March 2019, and the other two fake pregnancies must have happened in the six months between then and the incident in September. He may not have been around her much during the first one, and the other ones probably didn't progress to the point she would have normally been noticeably pregnant.

    Of course it looks bizarre and fishy from the outside looking in.

    Most people are inherently trusting of people they are close to and never think to double check everything they say. That's what pathological liars rely on. Given the letter I transcribed a page or two back, this woman has allegedly forged documents and created fake social media accounts. It seems she's prepared to go the extra mile to make sure her lies are believable.

    That text message from the "relative" is pretty interesting.

    If that's not Donna pretending to be someone else, then one of her relatives is also playing along with the dead mother scam. The article says they've contacted the person behind it, which suggests the latter. The media did interview her sister the other day who claimed the pregnancies were all real...

    The text messages also show she has a history of kicking in doors to enter rooms.

    Edit: Turns out the sister who was defending her doesn't actually exist and is another one of Donna's aliases... Looks like she fooled the Daily Mail too.

    doesn't make much sense for her though, she’s allegedly a con artist with a warrant out on her, why would she go to the police? Did she think they wouldn’t find out who she really is?

    Doing some digging online into these different aliases this woman used and realised there are news stories about poor Joshy around the world. Denmark, france to name a couple.

    Poor f**ker reminds me of Seth Rogen aka the cum guy in edit: the Long Shot. Lmao

    Reynolds' lawyers will allege she only filed her domestic violence complaint after she learned of his decision to tell police about her alleged deceit.

    https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw...s-amid-catfishing-claims-20200208-p53z0b.html

    In the dying days of their relationship, Reynolds turned to the NRL Integrity Unit for advice on how to handle the situation. He was told to speak to the police, who suggested he take out a domestic apprehended violence order against Del Busso.

    The pair broke up in December 2019, after Reynolds messaged her saying he was aware there was no pregnancy and requested she never contact him again.

    NSW Police charged Reynolds with assault several hours later.
