Rebel Wilson has filed an application to appeal a ruling forcing her to repay 90 per cent of her $4.7 million payout from a defamation suit against Australian company Bauer Media, as The Guardian reported.
The “Pitch Perfect” star took to Twitter on Thursday to thank fans for their support and to reaffirm her commitment to take her legal fight until the very end.
Wilson first sued Bauer Media in 2016 after their magazine Women’s Day published a 2015 story claiming the actress had misled people about her age, birth name and biography.
In 2017, she was awarded $4.7 million after a jury in Australia found that the magazine had wrongly portrayed her as a liar.
After the verdict, an appeals court determined that Wilson could not prove she sustained economic loss or missed out on movie roles due to the Women’s Day story.
