Police have revealed that the messages, totalled to be in the 1000s, included threats to harm the actress and singer, her family and her friends.

McCabe's lawyer, Alan Hensley said his client had schizophrenia and was under the influence of the drug ice at the time of the offences between 2010 and 2013.

He also told the court that his client did not intend to cause apprehension or fear. can reveal Sophie Monk, her sister and management were recently set to appear in court.
