Nova host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli to hit super-fan with an apprehended violence order, AVO

EXCLUSIVE: Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli superfan who wanted him to be the ‘father of her child’ faces restraining order after allegedly bombarding him with texts and sending creepy dolls to his house

A super-fan of Nova host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli faces an apprehended violence order after allegedly bombarding him with ‘hundreds’ of messages and showing up outside his radio station. 

Daily Mail Australia can reveal NSW Police filed an application for an AVO against Lisa Christian in a Sydney court on Sunday over Wippa’s fears about her ‘escalating’ behaviour.  

Ms Christian runs a fan site for the radio presenter and comedian named ‘All My Love’, where she has spoken about attending live Fitzy and Wippa shows and described him as ‘very romantic and caring’.

The apprehended violence order application said Ms Christian began messaging Wippa on Instagram in August 2019, but the texts weren’t threatening and didn’t always make sense. 

However, the star ‘became increasingly concerned when the defendant mentioned one of (Wippa’s) children and knowledge of the (person in need of protection’s) residential address.’

Last month, Ms Christian allegedly sent Wippa images of herself wearing underwear, the court document said. 

That same month, she also allegedly sent an image of herself with a toy baby, and claimed that Wippa would be ‘the father of her child’.

In late June, Ms Christian sent a message containing a Domain article which describes details of Wippa’s $6.5million property in Sydney’s east.

She asked if she could send ‘monkey dolls’ directly to his home, rather than to Nova’s offices, the court document said. 

On July 1, Wippa opened a parcel at home and found dolls wrapped in bubble wrap with a pink note stuck to them, police said. 

He made a report to NSW Police on Saturday. 

The AVO document said Wippa feared ‘the defendant may show up at his address … and is concerned about the defendant’s behaviour escalating and is concerned about what she may do next.’ 

Police claimed at a previous point she had turned up outside Nova headquarters. 

On Sunday the woman posted on social media that Wippa had ‘gave me an AVO.

‘I’m stunned, blocked all of nova and blotting him out of my life if I can,’ she said. ‘I don’t need lies and made up baloney’.  

Ms Christian said she thought Wippa was perfect, ‘now I see he has flaws and insecurities.’ 

Police will seek orders for Ms Christian not to contact Wippa or go within 200m of his house at the Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday. 

She signalled she will retain a lawyer and fight the AVO. 

Wipfli recently starred on Nine’s latest season of The Celebrity Apprentice, where he raised $184,500 for the charity, the Cooper-Rice Brading Foundation.

He has co-hosted the network’s Fitzy and Wippa show since 2011 and has three children with his wife Lisa Wipfli nee Robertson. 

A police spokesman declined to comment as the case is before the courts. Wippa’s manager Mark Klemens was contacted.
