The influencer whose partner is accused of murdering his mother in Perth has broken her silence, revealing she has been in a ‘complete state of shock and utter disbelief’.

Mother-of-one and model Gracie Piscopo has remained tight-lipped since Andre Zachary Rebelo was charged last month with murdering his mother Colleen Rebelo at her Preston Point Rd home in Bicton in May 2020.

But in a statement posted to Instagram on Wednesday night, Ms Piscopo finally shared how she and her three-year-old son Romeo were coping.

‘I’d like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding for my absence,’ she wrote.

‘For the past two weeks, I have been in a complete state of shock and utter disbelief, and I am deeply affected by the events that have unfolded.

‘I am grateful for everyone who has reached out and sent love and support, this has been an extremely difficult time and my focus right now is the wellbeing of my son.

‘Thank you to everyone for also understanding and respecting the need for privacy, Romeo and I will get through this.’

Mr Rebelo, 26, has also been charged with five counts of forging a document with intent to defraud.

He has pleaded not guilty to those charges and is due to stand trial in the WA District Court in December next year.

Mr Rebelo remains in custody for the murder charge and is next scheduled to face Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on December 21.
