Von Moger pleaded guilty to seven charges, including possession of methamphetamine, cannabis, testosterone cypionate, proviplex and viaplex (a drug to help men with erectile dysfunction).

He has been ordered to pay $500 to a court fund.

Von Moger’s lawyer, Bernard Campigli, told the court that his client had spent a night in custody after he was arrested, which had been a “sobering experience” for him. Herald Sun reported.

Mr Campigli told the court that von Moger suffered from depression and was traumatized by a carjacking while living in Los Angeles.

He moved home last year.

“Unfortunately, it quickly got out of hand. He had been on testosterone for several years… (and) other substances came into the picture,” said Mr Campigli.

von Moger told the court he could no longer produce testosterone naturally.

Mr Campigli said his client would participate in a rehabilitation program and that von Moger will appear in court again later this year for another case.

The bodybuilder was taken to hospital by ambulance on the morning of May 4.

Three windows, spanning both floors of the house, were damaged and boarded up, while shards of glass were seen under the broken windows.

Who is Calum von Moger?

Von Moger is best known for Playing Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2018 American Comedy Drama Taller

He has 3.3 million followers and a clothing line.

As a young child, von Moger grew up with his five siblings in Anglesea on Victoria’s Surf Coast.

There he started lifting weights at the age of 14.

He won the World Fitness Federation junior Mr Universe title in Austria in 2011.

After winning another Mr Universe title in South Korea in 2014, he moved to Los Angeles.

In 2015 he told: the Australian one of his main goals was to “make a real difference” and motivate children to get out of the house and go to the gym. At the time, he had 224,000 followers on Instagram.

He won his third Mr Universe title in France that year.

In 2017, von Moger was featured in his first film – a bodybuilding documentary called Generation Iron 2

He then played Schwarzenegger in Taller

“I’ve looked up to him all my life while I was training,” von Moger said of the Terminator star at the time.

The following year, he had his own movie on Netflix, Calum Von Moger: Unbroken

Last October, von Moger moved back to Australia.

In a Facebook post made from the hotel quarantine in Sydney, he said he’s had a rough year – including the death of his dog Rex – missing Australia and looking forward to “finally” seeing his friends and family in Victoria.

“I know this sounds crazy, but a voice inside told me it’s time to give up my freedom and luxury life in Los Angeles and return home,” he wrote.

The week before his hospitalization, von Moger edited the caption of an emotional post on his Instagram asking for forgiveness from his fans.

“Everyone has a past. We have all been through difficult times. I admit, I messed up many times. But I don’t care about dwelling on negative thoughts from the past. All I care about is that I learn from my mistakes and become a better person. I’m doing my best to stay strong, but I also have my days,” he wrote.

Travel with steroids

In a video filmed two years ago for his YouTube channel, von Moger opened up about his take on steroids.

He said he trained naturally for six years before discovering what steroids could do when he realized his friend was using them.

“For a year my boyfriend just got a lot bigger and stronger, a lot faster and I thought, what the hell is going on, how is he doing this? And then we found out he was on steroids,” he said.

“But I refused to take them, I was happy to train naturally and just see what I could do naturally.

“It was also so out of reach for me, where I grew up, where I lived. If my parents found out, they would definitely kick me out of the house…it’s illegal.”

Von Moger said it wasn’t until he was 21, after he won his junior Mr Universe title, that a mentor said, “If you want a top five place (in the open division) you have to take steroids” .

He said he then took them with him in the run-up to competitions “to prepare”.

He warned young bodybuilders not to use them too quickly. He told them to see what they could do naturally without the health risks associated with steroids.
