REBEL WILSON WINS $3.6 MILLION IN DEFAMATION CASE
Thursday, Sep 14, 2017

Rebel Wilson’s lawsuit is Pitch Perfect!

The actress wins $3.6 million in a defamation case against the parent company of Woman’s Day, Bauer Media Group. She sued the company due to their publication that branded her as a serial liar. It published that Rebel had lied about her name, age, and childhood to gain success in Hollywood. Rebel Wilson was able to prove successfully that this hindered her ability to get roles following Pitch Perfect 2.

The actress released the following statement on her Twitter via several tweets:

“Today was the end of a long and hard court battle against Bauer Media who viciously tried to take me down with a series of false articles. When the jury delivered its verdict they answered every single point in my favour. Today Justice Dixon accepted that Bauer Media subjected me to a sustained and malicious attack timed to coincide with the launch of Pitch 2.The judge accepted without qualification that I had an extremely high reputation and that the damage inflicted on me was substantial. He said the nature of the aggravated defamation and the unprecedented extent of dissemination makes vindication of particular importance. The judge said he knew that the info from anonymous paid source was false. And that Bauer Media traded recklessly on my reputation in order to boost its own profits. Justice Dixon has awarded me a record sum and I’m extremely grateful for that. It is 4 times the Australian record. To me though, this case wasn’t about the money. I’m looking forward to helping out some great Australian charities and supporting the Oz film industry with the damages I’ve received. Also looking forward to getting back to my career and entertaining everyone! 😊 Thank you again for the love and support! I am humbled x”

She was awarded the biggest defamation payout in Australian history.

While we’re excited for Rebel, Gary is trying to compete with her payout claiming his fellow Dish Nation cohosts are lying about his age!

If you’re the judge, is Gary winning this case? 🙄

CHARLIE HUNNAM IS THE BEST BOYFRIEND EVER!
