Rebel Wilson became the newest member of the LGBTQIA+ family when she candidly revealed her new girlfriend on Instagram. “I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess,” she wrote alongside a pic of herself with Ramona Agruma. Though it’s unclear how long Wilson has been dating the jewelry/clothing designer, TMZ spotted them together at the Super Bowl in February. The outlet also reported that the couple later jetted off to Cabo for Wilson’s birthday.
But, as happy as Wilson looks on social media, she might not have been ready to spill the beans to fans just yet. On Twitter, she hinted that she was pushed into publicly sharing the news, writing that “it was a very hard situation but trying to handle it with grace.” A since-deleted piece in the Sydney Morning Herald confirmed that they gave Wilson a deadline to respond to their inquiries about her relationship with a woman, leading the actor to take to Instagram with the news. To date, journalist Andrew Hornery has opened up about the mistakes he made in handling the situation. “It is not the Herald’s business to ‘out’ people and that is not what we set out to do,” he explained, expressing regret for (unintentionally) causing Wilson any emotional distress. Moving forward, he plans to “take into consideration the extra layer of complexities people face when it comes to their sexuality.”
