Now Rebel Wilson Is The One Being Sued — Over A Case Of Mistaken Identity!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersRebel Wilson

Ooh, Rebel Wilson. This is not a good look, girl.

In case you haven't been following the drama, the Pitch Perfect star has been embroiled in a lawsuit with Bauer Media over an article in Women's Day which points out that she lied about her age.

We don't get what the big deal is with lying about your age in Hollywood, but whatevs. Gurl says she lost jobs in Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls over the "scandal" — and voiceover work is a cushy gig.

Photos: You Won't Believe These Stars Are The Same Age!

The bigger issue she's facing now is that she personally called out the journalist for contacting her grandmother in search of the story, posting her photo and calling her "scum." Or rather the problem is she DIDN'T.

See, the Elizabeth Wilson whose pic she posted was a writer for Bauer Media's House and Garden Magazine — NOT the Elizabeth Wilson who wrote the article for Women's Day.

What are the odds, right?

Well, now the wrong Elizabeth is suing the very wrong Wilson over the slight. The defamation suit is set to be heard by the New South Wales Supreme Court in August.

So much drama over a number!

Rebel Wilson Says She Developed A Career-Damaging Stress Sore After Tabloid Published True Story Of Her Lying About Age

| Filed under: Legal MattersRebel WilsonHealthDakota Johnson

Rebel Wilson is living up to her (fake) name and isn't going to give in to the tabloids!

As we reported in 2015, Australian publication Women's Day published an article claiming the Pitch Perfect star lies about her background, notably her name and her age.

Days later, documents from the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and the Australian Electoral Roll proved that she lied about her age by 6 years, and that her birth name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds.

Fast forward to this year, "Fat Amy" sued Bauer Media (the publisher of Women's Day) for defamation… even though she in fact fibbed about her past.

On Wednesday, Wilson took the stand and told the Supreme Court of Victoria that she was so distressed by the articles, she developed a "stress sore" around her mouth. As a result of the blemish, the filmmakers of How to Be Single (her 2016 comedy with Dakota Johnson) were forced to cut her from several scenes.

She claims she also developed eczema, a urinary tract infection, and had to take sleeping pills during this traumatic time.

The Australian actress believes an "obsessed and weirdly jealous" former schoolmate told Women's Day about her fake age in order to make a "quick buck." According to emails read aloud in court, the source did try to make money from the scoop.

Not only did the controversy decrease the amount of roles she was offered, Wilson says the publication strategically released the information to coincide with the release of Pitch Perfect 2.

While we feel horrible for what Rebel had to go through, doesn't it seem like she should've been honest in the first place??
