Rebel Wilson has Australian defamation payout slashed

MELBOURNE, Australia — Rebel Wilson has had her record 4.6 million Australian dollar ($3.5 million) damages award in a defamation case slashed to AU$600,000 ($454,000) after a magazine publisher appealed the amount of the payout.

The 38-year-old Australian comic actress, best known for the “Pitch Perfect” movies and “Bridesmaids,” was not in the Court of Appeal in Melbourne on Thursday to hear the three judges’ decision.

Wilson won a Victoria state Supreme Court jury trial ruling that German publisher Bauer Media defamed her in a series of articles in 2015 claiming she lied about her age, the origin of her first name and her upbringing in Sydney.
