Rebel Wilson cancels Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane events promoting memoir amid dispute with Sacha Baron Cohen


Homegrown Hollywood star rebel wilson has canceled three scheduled shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and the Sydney Opera House next month as his feud with former co-star Sacha Baron Cohen continues to hurt the publication of Wilson's memoir.

Ticket holders will be notified today that Evening With Rebel Wilson events, scheduled as part of the book's promotional effort Rebel Risingare canceled and refunds will be processed automatically.

Rebel Wilson delayed the publication of her memoir amid a dispute with former co-star Sacha Baron Cohen.

“Given the changes in publication dates for Rebel Risingthere have been changes to the promotional schedule and as a result this show has been cancelled,” fans will be informed.

On the other hand, the legal issues delaying the release appear to have been resolved, and disappointed devotees can use ticket refunds to pre-order for The rebel uprising, which now hits shelves on May 8.


The book was delayed after Wilson made allegations against Baron Cohen about his behavior while they were working on the film Grimsby.

She alleges that she did not want to appear naked in the film and that Baron Cohen asked her to stick his finger in her behind during the filming of a sex scene.

The British comedian later released a statement denying the claims, saying they were “provably false”.

Publishers HarperCollins have repeatedly refused to discuss the effect of Baron Cohen's threat of possible legal action on the original decision to postpone it.
