The model applied for an AVO against Ahmunett on February 21, whereby he claimed she stalked him.
As a result, Ahmunett admitted to trespassing in his flat on February 22 while other charges of stalking and harassment were dropped.
While he has since withdrawn any alleged wrongdoing on Ahmunett’s part, Newtown Police have confirmed the charges will not be dropped until after May 29 court date. “It’s not really up to him… Whether he wants her charged or not, it would be up to the police to determine the charge or not,” police told WHO.
“An enforceable AVO which started on the 4th of March and that remains in place,” authorities confirmed.
They also revealed that Ahmunett had in the past breached her AVO after being within 100 metres of Ball.
“On the 21st of March she breached AVO,” authorities revealed. This was also shared in court documents from a hearing on May 8.
WHO has reached out to Nadia Tabbaa for comment, she is yet to respond.

Although Ball and his ex are staying mum on the ordeal, a source tells WHO the whole situation was based on fabrications to protect Ball’s public image after he was painted in a negative light on Channel 9’s dating show.
“The reason he put an AVO out on her is because he wanted to stop Akila from potentially harming his public image after they broke up,” says a source.
The two are set to meet in court on May 29 to dispute the charges. Although Ahmunett has pleaded guilty to breaching her AVO by trespassing on Ball’s property.
This is a developing story.
