As we previously reported, Rebel Wilson filed a lawsuit against Australian published, Bauer Media. Wilson brought the suit against the publisher because she claimed they were publishing lies about her that caused her to lose job opportunities.
The six person all women jury deliberated for two days before they found Bauer Media guilty of saying Wilson lied about her age and that she also lied about Rebel being her birth name. In addition, they also claimed Wilson lied about having malaria, her parent’s occupation as dog trainers, and even being related to Walt Disney.
“The reason I’m here is not for damages, it’s to clear my name,” Wilson told the press. “I was hoping the jury would do the right thing and send a message to these tabloids and they’ve done that so for me, it’s over in my mind.”
Bauer Media is the publisher of Australian magazines Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, NW and OK.
Wilson is well known for her roles starring in Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids.
