Cassie Sainsbury, better known as “Cocaine Cassie”, has shown off her extraordinary post-jail weight transformation in a series of Instagram posts alongside her new fiancée.
The glam 26-year-old made headlines back in 2017, when she was caught transporting drugs in Colombia.
She spent three years in the the infamous El Buen Pastor women’s prison in the South American country’s capital.
The drug smuggler left prison in April 2020 and is serving the remainder of her sentence on parole in the capital.
Since her first imprisonment over five years ago, she has lost a staggering 4.5st (29kg) and nearly 2st (12kg) since winning her freedom less than two years ago.
Cassie has also got multiple tattoos on her right arm following her release.
Sainsbury rang in the New Year alongside her fiancée, Tatiana, whom she got engaged to after just five months of dating in November 2021.
The couple plan to tie the knot in March and divide their time between Australia and Colombia once Sainsbury is permitted to leave the South American country from May onwards, when her parole expires.
Sainsbury previously split from prison lover Joli Pico after she was released from jail, claiming Pico had ended up “being with someone else”.
She announced details of her new relationship in July last year, telling the Daily Mail at the time that her new partner was a computer technician who was unaware of her notoriety back home.
She said: “She doesn’t know to the extent that I’m quite well-known back in Australia. I shared everything with her about everything.
“But here they don’t understand that kind of (fame). In Colombia there’s so much of it (cocaine smuggling).”

She added: “Basically, Tatiana said she wasn’t going to judge me on my past, she was really mature about the whole situation.
“I feel like I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. It’s nice to feel like I can be myself with no judgement from someone who is always there for me.”
