Leonard Watters is appealing the six-month prison sentence handed down to him after he made two false accusations that Louis Walsh had groped him at a Dublin nightclub in April 2011.
Mr Watters first made the accusations to a Garda on Harcourt Street on the night he claimed the incident occurred. He then lodged an official complaint in June 2011.
His Solicitor, Ciara Walsh, said that Watters was a "Walter Mitty" type character, and that he has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder ever since being burned as a young child.
The court also heard that Mr Watters, who withdrew his complaint when CCTV footage didn't back up his story, had been starstruck by Louis Walsh and that his actions had been "the ultimate cry for help".
Mr Watters must now wait until Friday to find out if his appeal has been successful and whether he will avoid serving a prison sentence.
