    Hornery wrote he gave Wilson two days to respond to questioning, effectively forcing the actress’ 手, yet became angry when the star chose to take control of the narrative herself.

    ‘It was with an abundance of caution and respect that this media outlet emailed Rebel Wilson’s representatives on Thursday morning, giving her two days to comment on her new relationship with LA leisure wear designer Ramona Agruma, before publishing a single word,’ 他写了.

    ‘Like other mastheads do every day, we simply asked questions and as standard practice included a deadline for a response. I had made no decision about whether or what to publish, and the Herald’s decision about what to do would have been informed by any response Wilson supplied.

    A small article on Rebel and Ramona, 38, announcing the relationship, also ran in the Sydney Morning Herald’s print edition on Saturday.

    A Stonewall spokesperson said : ‘Coming out is a deeply personal decision. Whether, when and how to come out should be decided by the individual, entirely on their terms.

    ‘It is simply not OK to ”出” LGBTQ+ people or put pressure on us to come out.

    ‘Media outlets should take care not to sensationalise LGBTQ+ lives and relationships.

    Actor and singer Hugh Sheridan said he introduced the happy couple to each other six months ago after deciding he would dedicate time to finding a perfect match for Rebel.
