Australian actor Josh Lawson strung up a dominant influencer for a year after striking up a holiday romance in Bali and introducing her to his ‘daddy dom’ fetish, only to be left heartbroken to discover he has a long-term partner.
Fina, who is from Brunei and lives in London, met Lawson, 41, on the holiday island as she was getting over her divorce.
Fina told Daily Mail Australia how she first met the Mortal Kombat actor on celebrity dating app Raya in May 2022.

They then met while on holiday in Bali in August that year.
The couple’s relationship quickly blossomed and before long Lawson introduced her to his kink, requesting that he call her ‘Daddy’ while she called him ‘Little Girl’.
Fina admitted she hadn’t heard of the House of Lies actor before meeting her, but noticed that tourists recognized him.
After their holiday in paradise ended, Fina and Lawson stayed in touch and regularly sent each other pictures and sweet text messages – in part part of his elaborate ‘web of lies’, she claims.
Among the messages were photos of Lawson shirtless in bed and the actor claimed their romance was ‘more than flirting’.
In one message, he wrote: ‘The second I saw you in Bali I knew there was something there. I immediately felt connected to you.
‘And when our bodies touched, the father found his little girl.’
She later admitted she was new to the ‘daddy dom’ fetish but said she was ‘surprised at how much it turned her on’.
Lawson regularly promised that he would see Fina again, he claims, but these plans never came to fruition.
Daily Mail Australia has seen messages Lawson sent to Fina where he plans to meet at the Cannes Film Festival and in New York.

Daily Mail Australia has seen Lawson send Fina messages in which he plans to meet at the Cannes Film Festival and in New York. He also claimed he had told her to fly to London from his home on the Gold Coast.
After about a year of their holiday romance – only after these plans had continued – Fina realized something was wrong.
She told Daily Mail Australia how her heart sank when she realized Lawson was already in a long-term relationship after doing some digging on Instagram.
‘It was all a web of lies,’ she said.
‘I was so overwhelmed by the promise he made me. It was all very deceptive.’
Fina said she was so smitten with Lawson that she was looking at a career in Australia so they could be closer together – and she felt he could be ‘the next person in her life’ after her six-year marriage ends in early 2022.
The social media influencer added that Lawson was ‘super into’ her ‘daddy dom’ fetish and she didn’t mind going along with it.
Fina, who is 5ft 3in, said she liked to ‘look younger’.
‘You’re like a little girl,’ she claimed.

Fina decided to speak out to warn other women about the dangers of meeting someone famous online – and how they can use their powers to ‘master’ people.
‘I don’t want this to happen to anyone else. The only way to change someone’s behavior is to call them out.
‘With his reasonably convincing acting skills, he confirmed to me how special I am to him. He made multiple promises to visit me from the Gold Coast to London.
‘He was telling me he was coming to London. I trust this word.’
Fina texts Lawson’s girlfriend Rebecca Moore after realizing she has been led on.
Mrs Moore responded and sympathized with Fina, saying her fling in the sand was ‘something her ego needed’.
He also revealed that Fina was in Bali when she met Lawson because the trip was for her birthday.
‘Sadly you are not his only little girl,’ added Mrs Moore. ‘He calls me father.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Lawson’s agent and Ms Moore for comment.
