Just a few days ago, Rebel Wilson took to social media to share an update on her personal life: she’s in a relationship with designer Ramona Agruma. Wilson made the sweet announcement by sharing a photo of her and her girlfriend together, saying she thought she was ‘looking for a Disney prince’ but maybe what she really needed was a ‘Disney princess’ ” all this time. But after the revelation, a reporter from an Australian newspaper said they would release her within two days if she didn’t comment on the relationship.
The Sydney Morning Herald Andrew Hornery, in a column written over the weekend, revealed that in an “abundance of caution”, the newspaper emailed representatives for Rebel Wilson on Thursday morning. And later the same day, the actress reportedly decided to go public on Instagram. In the opinion piece, Hornery called Wilson’s move a ‘big mistake’ and said threatening to take her out was no problem because ‘sexual orientation is no longer something to hide’ .
In the reporter’s article with his outlet, he also claimed that when the actress (now in her 40s) was previously in a relationship with businessman Jacob Busch, she “thankfully harbored such lustful interest by entertaining the press about the couple. Following the publication of the column by the Herald, backlash surfaced online, with people rushing to Wilson’s side for apparently being pressured to publicly discuss a private matter. In Twitter opinion:
Rebel Wilson being forced out makes me so angry. going out or not is such a personal thing. it can take a lifetime for the person to prepare. sometimes the right time never comes. when you date someone, you take away their choice in such a violent way.June 11, 2022
BBC journalist Megha Mohan also criticized the newspaper and the journalist for “complaining” about having chosen to announce her relationship with Ramona Agruma herself. In his words:
I just read this @smh article 3 times to make sure I didn’t read it wrong. The publication has messaged Rebel Wilson saying they’ll be releasing her in 2 days – and is now complaining that she chose to go public with her relationship with a woman herself. Pretty amazing. pic.twitter.com/qiPZkYFmkaJune 11, 2022
In the wake of the relationship announcement, it was reported that Rebel Wilson would be “very serious” with Ramona Agruma, per People. The couple have reportedly been an item since January and are “super happy together”. She was apparently set up with the creator through a friend, and the two apparently spoke on the phone “for weeks” before meeting, which the star found “very romantic.”
The Australian performer also shared that she felt she was now in an equal partnership and a healthy relationship. It’s supposedly different from what she’s been through in the past, when she was “putting up with” things she “shouldn’t have”. The Pitch Perfect alum has always shown love for her exes, saying “they’re awesome,” but, with her new partner, it seems there’s a balance in the partnership that really clicks for her.
