The socialite niece of Australian journalist and businesswoman Ita Buttrose, Lizzie, has revealed she is set to wed her fiancé in a matter of months.
The revelation that the 48-year-old was set to marry her base jumper fiancé, Zoran Stopar, on December 1 came during a court hearing in which Stopar admitted to defacing photos of Buttrose and her family members at her home, news.com.au reports.
Stopar, 38, pleaded guilty to three charges during the Sydney court appearance, including punching a wall and Buttrose’s TV and writing the words “slut”, “whore” and “junkie” on photos of her and her family at her Sydney mansion.
Buttrose guest starred on a number of The Real Housewives of Sydney episodes earlier this year.
Stopar is believed to be the seventh man the socialite has been engaged to, and the pair has been romantically linked since April 2016.
The couple's wedding date also falls within the same period that Buttrose holds an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) out against her soon-to-be husband.
A police statement of facts seen by news.com.au revealed officers were called to Buttrose's home on September 17, the 13th time they were called to the residence in just ten months.
The damaged photographs were filmed by police, and Stopar was charged with six offences, including assault occasioning actual bodily harm against his fiancé.
At an AVO hearing last month, Buttrose said she opposed the AVO order and told the court that on the day she was allegedly assaulted, she was under the influence of alcohol. She said she had passed out and "become violent" when her fiancé attempted to carry her to bed.
During further hearings this week, the assault charge against Stopar was withdrawn by the police prosecutor.
The couple also revealed they had plans to move to far north Queensland once they marry and sell Buttrose's Sydney home.
Stopar was placed on an 18 months good behaviour bond, with Magistrate Joanne Keogh telling the couple they were "committed to their relationship"
Keogh set the AVO against Stopar on behalf of Buttrose for 12 months.
