ANONYMOUS (drools licked)
She’s been in court, making allegations and defending herself in a case where she’s suing for sexual harassment. But Rebel Wilson is now laughing it off on social media.
The Pitch Perfect actress tweeted:
I don’t know where these ugly women get their ideas, but using my celebrity to catch dog pups & steal their puppies to sell them for profit is vile. My dogs are treated like royalty! — Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) May 9, 2016
The Australian-born actress has been separated from her pups for over two years after she was accused of “severe” and “extreme” physical and emotional abuse while attending training sessions with a dog trainer. But she fired back, tweeting on Monday:
The dogs have been kept and raised well for the last 8 yrs and hence the lawsuit. But honestly this is a waste of everyone’s time and money. — Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) May 8, 2016
The lawsuit is revealed in court documents obtained by TMZ, revealing that Rebel allegedly physically abused the animals, hung and photographed them to mess with their minds, burned their feet and hair with cigarettes and punched the animals several times in the head.
“Not good fun. All very emotionally traumatic for the dogs,” the dog trainer says. “You [Rebel] and your associates are no fun. You and your associates do not [want] the dogs to enjoy themselves.”
Rebel – whose attorneys said in court papers that her acting career is suffering from the situation – denied she’s ever abused her dogs, saying the pit bull and mongrels were “always treated as family”.
But that hasn’t kept the dogs from featuring on Rebel’s Instagram page.
One picture shows her enjoying a morning nap in a basket with one of her four-legged friends.
Several others show the actress feeding her dog a grilled cheese sandwich and riding on the lap of a fluffy friend.
Rebel, who was born Rebel Kelly, has opened up about how the sexual harassment lawsuit had created a strain in her life.
On the Real Story, legal analyst Michael Dreeben said that the allegations make the case even more complicated, and that it will all come down to the truth.
Dreeben said that it’s unusual for pet trainer court cases to proceed, but when it does, they tend to get pretty ugly, particularly when it comes to the very serious allegations, especially when there’s such a lack of proof.
