Rebel Wilson returns to court to fight for lost earnings

Australian actress Rebel Wilson is getting ready for a new battle in court after successfully winning her defamation case against Bauer Media last week.

The publisher of Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, NW and OK magazine was found to have defamed her in eight articles in May 2015 by claiming she was a serial liar about her real name, age and childhood to make it in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old’s lawyers claim she is owed millions with the articles costing her movie roles in Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls.


It’s understood Wilson will apply for special damages and will use Hollywood agent and producer Peter Principato to provide expert evidence regarding her claimed losses.
