“I was confident from the start. This has definitely been a long and very hard fight. But I felt like I had to take a stand against a bully. Their conduct can only be described as disgraceful.“I look forward to rebuilding my career. I am grateful it’s all over. It’s a win for everybody who gets maliciously taken down. You guys have probably heard of tall poppy syndrome. This happened to me. I didn’t deserve it.”

Her case against Bauer Media alleged that articles published in magazines Woman’s Day, Women’s Weekly, OK Magazine and New Weekly from back in 2015 defamed her by painting her as a serial liar.
Extraordinary. Rebel Wilson has won her defo case against Bauer on essentially every single point. Huge win @theage

Just crushed my defamation case in Australia x thank you to all my family, friends and supporters! I had to take a stand. I had to stand up to a bully, a media organization Bauer Media Group who maliciously took me down in May 2015 with a series of grubby and completely false articles. Far too often tabloid magazines and the ‘journalists’ who work for them don’t abide by professional ethics. Far too often their conduct can only be described as disgraceful and disgusting! I’m glad that the lovely ladies of the jury have agreed with me. Their unanimous and overwhelming verdict has sent a clear message. I love my job as an actress and as an entertainer and I look forward to rebuilding my career now that the record has been set straight. Thank you so much everybody!
