Sydney Morning Herald Denies Allegations That They Were Going to Out Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson & Ramona Agruma

Bevan wrote, “Our weekly Private Sydney celebrity column last week asked Wilson if she wished to comment about her new partner. We would have asked the same questions had Wilson’s new partner been a man.”

“To say that the Herald ‘outed’ Wilson is wrong,” Bevan continued. “Like other mastheads do every day, we simply asked questions and as standard practice included a deadline for a response. I had made no decision about whether or what to publish, and the Herald’s decision about what to do would have been informed by any response Wilson supplied.”

The post added, “Wilson made the decision to publicly disclose her new partner, who had been a feature of her social media accounts for months.”

Bevan concluded, “Private Sydney is a column in which the writer’s interaction with his subjects is often part of the story. Saturday’s piece followed that theme in giving readers insights into our interaction with Wilson and her PR team. This was not a standard news story. We wish Wilson and Agruma well.”

If you missed it, Rebel revealed her relationship with Ramona last week. Shortly after, Rebel seemingly confirmed the reports that she was going to be outed.
