Rebel Wilson has recently landed in her great homeland of Australia for two things:
- Her grandfather’s 90th birthday.
- Her court trial against Bauer Media (the media outlet behind Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day and OK! Magazine).
First of all, a big happy birthday to her grandpa!
Secondly, Rebel Wilson has just made her first appearance in front of news cameras to address the court trial.
If you’re unfamiliar with the trial, Rebel is taking Bauer Media to court on claims of defamation.
After their 2015 articles on her, which claimed that she lied about her age and her name, it was implied that Rebel was a dishonest and untrustworthy person, leading to her losing key acting roles and damaging her career.
Rebel has claimed that these comments in Bauer’s publications have had a significant impact on her career and she is making the move to sue them on defamation claims.
Upon leaving court this week, Rebel spoke to 7 News crews outside the venue, telling what little she can about the proceedings thus far and how she feels about being back in Australia.
Rebel’s calm demeanour is definitely something everyone admires her for.
We look forward to finally hearing Rebel’s side of the story after the trial begins on Monday.
