Rebel Wilson wins Australia's highest ever defamation pay out

Rebel Wilson has won the highest defamation pay out ever awarded in Australia.

The Australian actress won $4.5 million Australian dollars (£2.7m) after successfully arguing a series of magazine articles portrayed her as a serial liar.

Bauer Media claimed Wilson lied about her age, real name and some childhood events, even after it knew the allegations were false.

Wilson said the case "wasn't about the money" for her and she will use the money she was awarded to help charities and the Australian film industry.
