Rebel Wilson is suing magazine publisher Bauer Media for defamation according to the writ filed in Australia that was obtained by Mashable.
In the writ filed on Monday to the Supreme Court of Victoria, several of Bauer Media’s Australian titles— which include Woman’s Day, Women’s Weekly and OK Magazine— are alleged to have damaged the comedian’s reputation through online and print articles that claim she lied about her upbringing and age.
The articles by these publications have “gravely injured in her feelings, credit and reputation” reports Mashable, and she is seeking damages from the loss of earnings due to roles not being offered to her due to them.
In May 2015, Woman’s Day published an article that said Wilson had lied about her age, name and where she grew up. The writ also alleges that a Woman’s Day article implied that the Pitch Perfect actress is a “serial liar who has invented fantastic stories in order to make it in Hollywood.”
Bauer Media declined to comment on the defamation allegations, reports the Guardian, and says that they have yet to be served a writ.
