Rebel Wilson Awarded Record €3m In Australian Court

Bauer forced to pay Rebel Wilson $4.5m Rebel Wilson awarded $5m payout in defamation case
Howard Terry | 14 September, 2017, 01:04

In a series of tweets, Wilson said the judgment 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".

Wilson won her lawsuit in 2015, and today, Australian judge Justice John Dixon announced her libel payout.

Wilson claimed that the eight articles in question portrayed her as a liar and that this resulted in her being sacked from two films.

In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, Wilson, who is now in the United Kingdom, said she would donate the money to Australian charities and invest in the country's film industry.

Rebel Wilson has been granted $4.56 million after effectively suing the distributer of Woman's Day over a progression of defamatory articles. The judge said that a series of magazine articles wrongly claimed she had lied about her age and upbringing, which subsequently caused her to lose work in Hollywood.

The judgement of the court is that the defendants Bauer Media Pty Ltd ... pay the plaintiff Rebel Wilson damages totaling $4,567,472 before interest and costs are added.

"The jury answered every question put to them in Rebel's favour".

"I'm looking forward to getting back to entertaining everyone!" "I also feel like it's important to stand up to bullies", she went on.

The article quoted an anonymous classmate of Wilson's who said that she had made all of this up and that she actually had a fairly boring childhood. "You know, I don't have a drug addiction or a secret child".

He said Bauer Media had "kept the story alive for days" for its own profit.

The record sum may affect future cases in Australia, but the ruling's impact may not extend beyond its borders.

The "Pitch Perfect" star's legal team had allegedly argued for $1.2 million in general damages and $5.89 million in special damages. "I am eternally grateful to those ladies". While ill, she says she hallucinated winning an Academy Award and rapping her acceptance speech.
