The Sun reports 39-year-old Lisa Murphy had a sexual relationship with Cipriani before he ended it after she told him she was pregnant.

Murphy reportedly sought $8000 to pay for loss of earnings from her work as a stripper after the abortion.  

She also had a cancer scare.

Upon hearing that Murphy was pregnant, Cipriani wrote: "Wow babe. That’s a shock to me too.”

Murphy requested the money stating: "Is there any way you can help me as I’m self-employed and not being paid," she wrote in a message.

Cipriani responded by stating:

"Don’t expect me to pay for your salary that’s quite different.”

Murphy and her friend were arrested in November 2015.

They pleaded guilty yesterday before going on trial.

The judge offered them a suspended jail sentence.
