Rebel Wilson Will Have To Pay More Than $60K Interest When She Pays Back Bauer Media AAP

Actor Rebel Wilson has been ordered to repay $4.1 million she received from Bauer Media in a defamation payout that was later reduced on appeal to $600,000.

The Court of Appeal on Wednesday ordered Wilson pay Bauer Media $4,183,071.45 - including $60,316.45 in interest - after the original judgment awarding her $4.7 million was set aside on appeal earlier in June.

Wilson was awarded the landmark payout in September 2017 following a defamation trial over the publication of a series of articles, but an appeal later found she was not entitled to $3.9 million in economic damages relating to a loss of income.
