Rebel Wilson will be awarded only 12 per cent of the initial defamation payout of $4.7 million from Bauer Media, following a court order at The Court of Appeal on Wednesday.

The original figure has been slashed due to Wilson now having to repay $4,183,071.45 Bauer Media, which includes $60,316.45 in interest.

According to The Guardian, Wilson did not dispute the $4.1 million to Bauer, choosing instead to fight her battle with the interest rate.

Wilson argued the interest should be charged at the Reserve Bank cash rate of 1.5 per cent, as opposed to Bauer’s 2 per cent.

Wilson will also be forced to pay 80 per cent of Bauer’s appeal costs.

On 14 June, a Melbourne court cut the defamation payout Bauer Media has to pay to the actor Rebel Wilson to $600,000.

Bauer’s challenge in Melbourne’s Court of Appeal saw the general damages payout be reduced from $650,000 to $600,000, while the special damages amount of $3,917,472 was found to have been wrongly awarded.

The following day, Wilson broke her silence via her Twitter account and said she “looked forward to appealing” the decision.
