Rebel Wilson to make lost earnings bid0:33
Hollywood star Rebel Wilson is due to make a bid for millions in lost earnings after a defamation case win.
HOLLYWOOD star Rebel Wilson will make her bid to get millions in lost earnings after winning her defamation case against a gossip magazine publisher.
Last week Wilson, 37, won her case against Bauer Media — the publisher of Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, NW and OK magazine.
The publisher was found to have defamed her in eight articles in May 2015 by claiming she was a serial liar about her real name, age and childhood to make it in Hollywood.
Submissions on how much money the actor should receive start today. Her lawyers will argue she’s owed millions because she lost roles in Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls after the series of defamatory articles were published.
It’s understood Wilson will apply for special damages and will use Hollywood agent and producer Peter Principato to provide expert evidence regarding her claimed losses.
