Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson is being accused of lying about her age and her upbringing.
A ‘source’ has told Woman’s Day magazine that Rebel is not 29 like she claims – she is actually 36.
“No-one knew of a Rebel Wilson,” the source told the magazine.
“Her name is — or was — Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she’s 36 — she was born in 1979 and we left school in 1997.”
The source also provided the magazine with a photo of “Melanie Bownds” in a debating team school photo. A plaque positioned in front of them states: “1997 Year 12 Commonwealth Bank DebatingTeam”.
“She was definitely not the class clown; none of us remember her being funny,” they said.
Rebel responded to the accusations – but not in the way everyone was hoping.
She tweeted: ‘OMG I’m actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly known as “CC Chalice” ….thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome x’
‘Okay but all jokes aside now…my real name is Fat Patricia x.’
