Wilson previously revealed that any money she received in damages following the case would go straight to good causes.

Bauer Media, publisher of Woman's Day magazine, was found guilty of defamation after Justice John Dixon said it had failed to show the claims made against the actress had any substance. She reportedly sought 7 million Australian dollars in her suit.

Bauer Media appreciated the risk of reputational damage to the plaintiff, and did not care whether Ms. Wilson suffered it as it pursued it's own corporate objective.

The alleged lies included her age, name and upbringing in Australia.

"I don't have a drug past".

The film star successfully sued Bauer Media in her native Australia after claiming a series of articles had falsely portrayed her as a "liar".

Her legal team would also apply for Bauer to pay all her legal costs, Leder said. They accepted that Rebel told the truth and they accepted her family told the truth.

The six-woman jury on June 15 overwhelmingly finds in favour of Wilson.

Australian actress Rebel Wilson will get the largest libel payout in Australian history, $4.5 million Australian (about $3.6 million U.S.).

On Wednesday, she took to Twitter and announced that she had won the bitter case captioning, "Today was the end of a long and hard court battle against Bauer Media who viciously tried to take me down with a series of false articles".

"At the point when the jury conveyed its decision they addressed each and every point to support me". The money comprised of £3489,000 in general damages and £2.9million special damages. "In the full media glare, Bauer Media's defence of this case attempted to characterise its articles as true or as trivial or not likely to be taken seriously. They're calling me a fake when I'm known for being myself", she added.

Her departure from Australian Woman's Weekly came before the record deformation ruling. The actress says she will donate the entire sum to charity.
