Court Ends Battle between Rebel Wilson and Bauer Media over Defamation

SYDNEY – The High Court of Australia dismissed on Friday the appeal of actress Rebel Wilson’s in the lawsuit over her defamation case against Bauer Media, ending the legal battle.

Wilson’s lawyers went to the country’s highest court after the appeals court reduced the compensation which a lower court had ordered Bauer Media to pay to the actress.

Initially, Bauer Media, headquartered in Germany and responsible for magazines such as Woman’s Day, had to pay $3.4 million to the actress, but on appeal the publisher managed to lower the amount to $437,000.

Wilson admitted that the High Court’s ruling ends the trial, but expressed her satisfaction that Bauer was found “guilty of malicious defamation” and said that “my reputation has been restored.”

“Today was just about a small point of special damages and for me it was never about the money, it was about standing up to a bully and I’ve done that,” the 38-year-old Australian actress told reporters.

The compensation corresponds to a series of eight articles published in 2015 which allegedly led to the actress, known from movies such as “Pitch perfect” or “How to be single,” not getting a new job for a year and a half.

Bauer alleged in those eight articles that Wilson had lied about her age, real name, education, and other issues.

The actress described the articles as “malicious” and accused the editor of causing the animation studio DreamWorks to dismiss her from the animated films “Trolls” and “Kung Fu Panda 3.”
