Cancer faker Belle Gibson has been spotted wearing a diamond band on her engagement ring finger a week after telling the Federal Court she was practically broke.
The stunning diamond band was nowhere to be seen when Gibson fronted the Federal Court in Melbourne last week after being called to explain why she hadn't paid her $410,000 fine for duping Australians.
The fraudster told the court she had been living off the kindness of her housemate Clive Rothwell, whom she claimed to know little about.

Dressed in black and wearing the same dark sunglasses she wore to court, Gibson was spotted jumping into Mr Rothwell's Peugeot outside their rented Northcote property on Wednesday morning.
Mr Rothwell was again seen riding off to work on his bicycle.
Last week, Gibson finally fronted the Federal Court to explain why she had failed to cough-up a cent of the money she owed.
The fake wellness guru faces jail time for failing to pay the penalty, which was imposed on her in 2017 by Federal Court Justice Debra Mortimer, for five breaches of consumer laws.
Gibson had claimed she had brain cancer and healed herself with natural remedies, including diet and alternative therapies.
She also lied to well-meaning consumers that she would donate money from her Whole Pantry app and book sales to various charities, including a boy with inoperable brain cancer.
She was just 21 in 2013 when she launched her Whole Pantry mobile app, which was reportedly downloaded 200,000 times within its first month.
Apple went so far as to offer that the app be made a default pre-installed inclusion on the Apple Watch. It was even included in promotional material.
Although Gibson received $440,500 from sales of her app and book, she only donated about $10,000 to charity.
