This Is How Much Rebel Wilson Could Be About To Make

Rebel Wilson wants $5.8 million in special damages following her win against Bauer Media for defamation.

For the first time today, her lawyer put a specific figure on her claim.

Making his submission to the Supreme Court for Wilson, Dr Matthew Collins said it was a conservative figure.

Dr Collins has said missed employment opportunities could have earned Wilson $6 million.

He said deductions were made for some stage shows Wilson had performed in.

“A star like Rebel Wilson ... a multi-million dollar actress ... could reasonably expect not to have had the hiatus in her career that the evidence establishes she had,” he said.

Justice John Dixon said it would take several weeks to assess the claim.
