Rebel to help charity after $4.5m payout

September 13, 2017

Rebel Wilson has been awarded more than $4.5 million in damages for being defamed by Bauer Media.

Hollywood star Rebel Wilson has been awarded $4.5 million in damages after she was defamed by the publisher of Woman's Day magazine.

On Wednesday morning in the Supreme Court of Victoria, Justice John Dixon said a substantial amount was required to "vindicate" Wilson after her reputation as an "actress of integrity was wrongly damaged".

Wilson, who was seeking more than $7 million, has previously indicated she will donate the money to charity and to support young actors and the Australian film industry.
