Melissa Tysoe posts throwback photo of Salim Mehajer

The glamorous girlfriend of an infamous Australian businessman who is currently engulfed by legal trouble has posted an adorable throwback photo of her new flame long before the controversy.

The extravagant public figure, who has often graced the front pages for all the wrong reasons, has lost none of his youthful exuberance and still shares the same cheeky grin and styled haircut.

True to his current emphasis on appearing high-class, he is wearing the blazer and tie of his exclusive $5,000 per-year Sydney college.

The photo is of disgraced former Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer.

Melissa Tysoe, a Central Coast business graduate and the new girlfriend of the failed politician, shared the throwback on her Instagram account on Tuesday.

Tysoe met her new partner at a New Year’s Eve party in Vaucluse, where the disgraced former deputy mayor gave her a fake last name so she wouldn’t know immediately who he was. 

Mehajer said the pair shared a smile of ‘immense connection’, which magnified when he decided to sit next to her and she didn’t move away from him – an action which strangely sent ‘shivers’ down his spine.

The now-31-year-old has barely changed in the 10+ years since the photo was taken, still retaining the same mischievous grin, slick haircut and overall importance on appearing stylish.

It is not known exactly when the photo was taken how old the fresh-faced student is, but he certainly has come a long way from his days at Trinity Catholic College.

On Monday, police charged Mehajer with perverting the course of justice and conspiring to cheat and defraud over a two-vehicle collision in Sydney’s south-west.

The charge of perverting the course of justice relates to Mehajer allegedly trying to prevent the court case going ahead while the conspiracy charge relates to insurance fraud. 

Police say they have witnesses to the collision and that Mehajer and five co-accused face ‘lengthy’ terms of imprisonment if convicted.

Perverting the course of justice attracts a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.

Among those arrested was Mehajer’s friend and business associate, Ahmed Jaghbir, who in November was charged with the murder of Hells Angels bikie Kemel ‘Blackie’ Barakat.

Mehajer was driving a Mercedes AMG on his way to court to face charges of assaulting a taxi driver on October 16 when his vehicle collided with a Mitsubishi Outlander at the intersection of Nicholas and Delhi Streets, Lidcombe.

The collision happened about 8.45am.

Mehajer was freed by Fire and Rescue NSW officers after about 20 minutes and taken to Westmead Hospital where he was treated and later released.

His passenger and the occupants of the Mitsubishi – two women, aged 31 and 32 – were not reported to have been injured during the incident.

Detectives from Flemington Local Area Command commenced an investigation into the collision under Strike Force Reppan, NSW police said on Tuesday.

Following extensive inquiries, investigators arrested Mehajer at a home at Vaucluse, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, and 28-year-old Jaghbir at a home at Lidcombe, in Sydney’s south-west, just before 7am.

Mehajer and Jaghbir were taken to Waverley and Bankstown police stations respectively. Both have been charged with perverting the course of justice and conspiring to cheat and defraud.

Jaghbir appeared in Bankstown Local Court where bail was formally refused. He will appear in the same court on Wednesday.

Mehajer will appear in Waverley Local Court again on Wednesday morning when a decision on his bail application will be made.
