John Ibrahim’s lover chills out in Byron Bay on bail

BYRON Bay: Where the rich and famous holiday, party - and some report for bail.

Sarah Budge, the girlfriend of Kings Cross identity John Ibrahim, took time out from working on her tan yesterday to report to Byron Bay police station.

The 27-year-old nightclub owner and model has been reporting weekly to Waverley police since her arrest during Australia's biggest organised crime raids last August.
