According to the Irish Independent, the Tullamore native has claimed she is being “trolled, defamed and stalked” on social media by anonymous accounts.

Lisa has said comments that have been made about her online are untrue, and “extremely damaging” to her and her business.

The social media star has also claimed anonymous posters have shared “sinister posts about her movements”, and seem to know when she is present at her family’s business.

Lisa and her company Lisa’s Lust List Limited are seeking to identify the people behind the posts, in order to take legal action against them.

In order to identify the individuals, Lisa is seeking a court order (known as a ‘Norwich Pharmacal’) which requires Facebook Ireland Ltd to provide her with details about the accounts in question.

The Irish Independent has reported that her application came before High Court judge Mr Justice Anthony Barr this week, who granted permission to serve short notice of the proceedings on Facebook Ireland.
