Australian comedian Rebel Wilson has won a defamation suit against a global magazine publisher after the Victorian Supreme Court found a series of articles alleging she was a serial liar had damaged her career, local media reported on Thursday.
The 37-year-old "Pitch Perfect" star sued Bauer Media over eight articles in Woman's Day, Australian Women's Weekly and OK Magazine in 2015, which her defence said "tore down an Australian star to sell magazines". She told the court she was sacked from the films Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls in the wake of the articles.
The initial article, which ran in "Women's Day", claimed that Wilson had lied about her real name, upbringing and age, and called into question her authenticity. Wilson told the jury that she was a member of an exclusive, invitation-only Disney club, and "Packed to the Rafters" star Hugh Sheridan appeared via video link to tell the court how he and Wilson had visited a secret apartment where, at the touch of a button, mermaids would appear in pictures on the walls.

Brooks said even after one of the officers was wounded, he limped toward the outfield in an attempt to help Scalise. As far as that game they were practicing for, it's set to go on as planned on Thursday.
"Far too often I can only describe their conduct as disgusting and disgraceful and I'm very glad that the jury has agreed with me".
Wilson, who will now jet to NY to shoot a film with fellow Australian Liam Hemsworth, said she was grateful the drama was now over.
"She doesn't say that these articles are the worst thing that have ever happened in her life and that you should all feel sorry for her".
