Rebel Wilson Awarded Record €3m In Australian Court

Rebel Wilson awarded millions in Australia defamation case

Wilson also provided evidence that the articles cost her film roles and up to $18m in earnings. "I am humbled x".

"I'm glad, very glad, that the jury has agreed with me and by their unanimous overwhelming verdict they have sent a very, very clear message".

Actress Rebel Wilson has been awarded Aus$4.5m (£2.7m), the biggest payout for defamation in Australian history, in what some commentators are calling a game-changing case.

Justice John Dixon said Wednesday a substantial award amount was required to "vindicate" Wilson after her reputation as an "actress of integrity was wrongly damaged".

Wilson offered to settle before the court case for AU$200,000, but sought AU$7million during the trial.

The jury's verdict established Bauer Media's publications had branded Ms Wilson a serial liar who had fabricated nearly every aspect of her life.

"At the point when the jury conveyed its decision they addressed each and every point to support me".

TCU Horned Frogs at Arkansas Razorbacks Start Time, College Football Odds
Arkansas senior Austin Allen was 9-for-23 for 138 yards and a touchdown. "Defensively, they play his scheme very well". TCU football will be playing in front of a sellout crowd on Saturday when the Horned Frogs take the field at Donald W.

It consists of A$650,000 in general damages and A$3,917,472 in special damages for career opportunities Wilson may have missed out on because of the claims.

The extent of the publication of the defamatory imputations against Ms. Wilson was unprecedented in defamation litigation in this country.

"Equity Dixon has granted me a record entirety and I'm amazingly thankful for that".

Her departure from Australian Woman's Weekly came before the record deformation ruling. She says she had to rely on talent only to break through, unlike fellow Aussie exports, the "glamorous" Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts.

"I'm looking forward to helping out some great Australian charities and supporting the Oz film industry with the damages I've received", she said.

In February 2016, Wilson opened up about the reports during an appearance on ABC's Australia show Home Delivery.

This followed what Wilson described as a "long and hard court battle" that found the defendant, Bauer Media, guilty. You know Woman's Day.
