Rebel Wilson's defamation trial against publisher begins

Rebel Wilson's defamation trial against publisher begins”

Wilson, who is suing Woman's Day publishers Bauer Media for defamation, sat in the witness box for the second day of the defamation trial at the Supreme Court of Victoria.

The trial, which took place in Australia's Supreme Court of Victoria on May 22, 2017, reportedly began with statements from Wilson's lawyer, Matthew Collins.

The defamation trial for "Australian success story" and Hollywood movie star Rebel Wilson will hear from a number of witnesses including her mother and siblings, her Australian and United States agents, and an old school friend from her childhood in Sydney.

Her dreams were shattered when Bauer Media published "grubby articles" that defamed her, he said.

The Fat Pizza and Pitch Perfect star tearfully recounted the "nasty" articles published by Bauer Media that she claims damaged her career.

She said in the past two years, she has only had two roles - one in Absolutely Fabulous, which she did as a favour, and a stage role in London.

THE judge needn't have anxious about the potential bias of at least one of the people cast into the jury pool for Rebel Wilson's defamation case.

"The name Rebel comes from. a little girl. that sang at my parent's wedding", she said. Here was young Rebel Wilson in a white dress.

She also argued the articles told the truth, following an interview by the Walkley award-winning journalist Caroline Overington who claimed Wilson lied to her about her age.

In a court nearby, staff could have swung a cat as a man faced charges for a grisly murder.

Bauer Media, the publisher of Woman's Day, stands accused of humiliating her in a series of articles in print and online in May, 2015.

"My mum's obsessed with dogs", Wilson said.

It was also claimed Wilson told Overington that her aunt was married to Walt Disney and gave her special access to the entertainment park as a child.

It was more important to ensure the process of justice was not undermined.

There was a retired illustrator, a teacher, a pricing analyst, graphic designer and church minister among the roll call of jury nominees.

She even smirked when the judges' associate revealed one of the jury contestants was, indeed, a magazine editor.

She was so sick she felt like she'd contracted a "voodoo disease" and was disconnected from her body, the court heard. "It must be terrifying".
