"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", he stated.

She claimed that eight articles published by Bauer magazines in 2015 had portrayed her as a serial liar, and that this resulted in her being sacked from two feature films.

"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", said Dixon at the Supreme Court in Melbourne on Wednesday. In addition, Dixon criticized Bauer Media for failing to properly investigate the allegations against the actress as well as for publishing them despite "knowing them to be false". You know Woman's Day. Wilson said the stories implied that she had lied about contracting malaria, having a disadvantaged upbringing, and being related to Walt Disney. On Tuesday the court awarded her $3.6 million in damages.

An Australian court believes Rebel Wilson's pitch was flawless.

According to Rebel's lawyers, the amount awarded is the "largest defamation damages award in Australian legal history". When the jury delivered its verdict they answered every single point in my favor.

"The judge accepted without qualification that I had an extremely high reputation and that the damage inflicted on me was substantial", she continued.

The $4.5 million payout is a couple of million shy of the $7 million Wilson and her lawyers expected after she successfully sued the publisher behind Woman's Day.

"Equity Dixon has granted me a record entirety and I'm amazingly thankful for that". She tweeted at that time that she would also use the funds to create scholarships and invest in Australia's film industry in order to create jobs, adding she takes being a role model seriously.

By reference to my assessment of the probabilities that it would actually have come about in this way, I have assessed the loss actually suffered by Ms Wilson by reason of the defendants' tortious conduct.

"I think she's going to be absolutely stoked and she'll probably say she crushed it".
