2003 Australian Idol runner-up, Shannon Noll is believed to be hiding out at his family farm in Condobolin today, after leaked tax documents known as the Panama Papers revealed accusations that he and his wife used an offshore firm to allegedly hide million-dollar investments.

The leak uncovered a suspected money laundering ring involving close associates of the ARIA-nominated rock powerhouse – including each member of his family back-up band, The Noll Brothers, as well as large amounts of hometown associates in Central West NSW.
A close friend of ‘Nollsy’ was put at the top of the offshore empire worth more than $200 million which has made hundreds of Condobolin residents a large fortune
A spokesperson from the Condobolin local council has said the reports were aimed at discrediting the third-highest-selling-Australian-Idol-contestant-off-all-time.
He also claimed the journalists involved were “former media and PR professionals” associated with the 2003 Australian Idol Winner, Guy Sebastian.

“Shannon Noll is no way involving in money laundering or the trafficking of goey. He’s an everyday Aussie bloke that taught himself to sing on the tractor,”
