The former Neighbours co-star Kym Valentine also gave evidence that Valance “said she was feeling bad, a bit stressed out, because she was leaving Scott” and that “she said the solicitors for her record company would get her out of the contract and would be faxing him the paper work (from the UK) to do so.”

In court, Holly Valance denied that she had said this to Valentine, even though she had signed an affidavit stating she had no recollection of the conversation. Justice Clifford Einstein said, “I have given close consideration to the question of whether or not the circumstances presently before the Court which do, it seems to me, show a calculated disregard of the rights of Biscayne as well as a cynical pursuit of benefit”. The court subsequently ordered Valance Corp. pay $350,000 to Biscayne Partners Pty. Ltd. Of this amount, $47,264.56 was “from shares Ms Valance and Mr Michaelson had bought together on the London Stock Exchange”, though the court did not award in favour of Biscayne getting a percentage of sales of her album, State of Mind.
