Rebel Wilson has opened up about being forced to come out in a brand new interview. Back in June, the Pitch Perfect star made headlines when she confirmed her romance with Lemon Ve Limon founder Ramona Agruma. “I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess,” she wrote on Instagram.
However, two days after her landmark post, it was revealed that the Bridesmaids actress was seemingly forced to come out by journalist Andrew Hornery from The Sydney Morning Herald.
In a now-deleted opinion piece, the columnist revealed that the newspaper had planned to run a story on Wilson’s relationship with Agruma before she could come out on her own terms. “In a perfect world, ‘outing’ same-sex celebrity relationships should be a redundant concept in 2022.
Love is love, right? As Rebel Wilson knows, we do not live in a perfect world,” he wrote. Hornery also said that warning Wilson of the story was a “big mistake” and that her coming-out post “gazumped the story.” In a recent interview with The Australian, the Pitch Perfect star opened up about the incident and described the invasion of privacy as “grubby behaviour.” “Basically, with the situation, where a journalist is threatening to out you, you’ve got to hurry, and some people we didn’t get a chance to tell before it came out publicly.
