An Australian newspaper has denied outing actress Rebel Wilson amid a storm of criticism over its reporting of her new relationship with a woman.

New Delhi, 13 June 2022

As per news report of BBC, on Friday, Wilson said she had found her "Disney princess" as she shared a selfie with her partner on Instagram. But on Saturday the Sydney Morning Herald revealed it had known about the relationship before it was public and had given Wilson two days to comment. The Herald denied pressuring Wilson, saying it had "simply asked questions". But the paper has faced criticism on social media, with LGBTQ+ campaigners saying it was unacceptable to put pressure on people to come out. In response to a Twitter post saying it wasn't Wilson's choice to come out, the 42-year-old Australian actress, who is known for roles in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect among others, said it was a "very hard situation but trying to handle it with grace".
