A Bitcoin trader has 'flossed' outside court after a magistrate refused Roxy Jacenko's bid to have a restraining order taken out against him.
Anthony Hess made the most of the attention from TV cameras and photographers outside the Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday, dancing on the streets after a four-hour hearing.
Ms Jacenko stormed out of the court the second her application was denied and cried as she power walked to a waiting SUV.

Mr Hess, 39, denied being spraying the offensive graffiti on the walls of Ms Jacenko's office, and various other locations across Sydney.
The PR maven claimed Mr Hess had abused her at an event last February and was so resentful he vandalised her Sydney office in retaliation, leaving her living in fear.
Mr Hess claimed he was just trying to leave the seminar after receiving homophobic harassment by two women, who he says were specifically placed Ms Jacenko to 'set him up' and create drama for her TV show 'I Am Roxy'.
The pair squared off in the Sydney courtroom on Thursday where Ms Jacenko's bid for an apprehended violence order (AVO) against Mr Hess was rejected.
Magistrate Allison Hawkins said she did not find that Mr Hess sprayed the graffiti and found Ms Jacenko's account to be exaggerated.
Outside court, a jubilant Mr Hess said the only offence was 'Roxy's spray tan and crimes against fashion... she's a trainwreck' and vowed to sue her for defamation.
'She's been stalking me for the past 12 months. I ran out of there to get away from her and she's been on me the whole time, she was her own undoing,' he said.
When asked who, if not him, would have sprayed the graffiti on Ms Jacenko's Paddington office, he repeated his most memorable line from court.
'Gay guys don't do graffiti.'
'Look how many enemies she's got, half of Sydney hates her. Who wouldn't want to graffiti her?'

The court heard the conflict began at one of Ms Jacenko's $500-a-head 'Conversations' events at the Ivy when Mr Hess got into an argument with two women.
One of those women claimed in court last year that Mr Hess called them 'fat bush pigs', which he denied.
Mr Hess told the court after this altercation he told Ms Jacenko's assistant Mason Brown 'either they leave or [my friend and I do], but was promised they would be seated far apart.
After about 10 minutes he and his friend decided to leave and encountered Ms Jacenko on the way out, where Mr Hess claimed she attacked him.
'She came at me like a steam train,' he told the court.
Ms Jacenko claimed she was just trying to diffuse the situation and get him to leave the event.

Ms Jacenko's lawyer Greg James QC said the incident left Mr Hess with 'resentment' for his client, leading him to paint the offensive graffiti on her Paddington office two months later.
Mr Hess said he didn't even know where her Sweaty Betty PR office was and he was asleep at a friend's house on Oxford Street 10 minutes drive away at the time.
'That's not my style. Gay guys don't do graffiti,' he told the court.
He denied holding any resentment towards Ms Jacenko over the incident.
'To be honest, I'm too busy jetsetting around the world to worry about Roxy and what she is doing,' he said.
