Rebel Wilson tweets about her $4.5M damages win

The Pitch Perfect star has obtained the largest defamation damages award in Australian legal history.

It has been a long, legal road for Rebel Wilson's lawsuit against Bauer Media, for defaming her in a series of stories published in 2015 but she has won!

They have been ordered to pay her a landmark $4.5 million in damages, which as she promised back in June, she says she can't wait to give to Australian charities and to support the Australian film industry. Yes Rebel!!! 

The Hollywood actress tweeted all about it, sharing the happy news with all of her followers;

The articles, which were published in Women's Day, Ok Magazine, Women's Weekly and New Weekly, cited Wilson as a serial liar, even disputing the claims she had made about being distantly related to Walt Disney.

One of the coolest things we've learned about Rebel through all of this, is that SHE IS related to Mr Disney. 

Take that Bauer Media!

Hopefully, this will make tabloid magazine reporters a little more wary when they publish lies about celebrities.
