Rebel Wilson, the renowned actress and comedian, is set to release her memoir titled 'Rebel Rising' on April 2. However, recent events have stirred controversy as Rebel took to her Instagram Story to reveal that a male celebrity, later identified as actor Sacha Baron Cohen, had allegedly threatened her over the content of a chapter dedicated to him in her upcoming book.

In her now-deleted post, Rebel expressed that the individual in question had hired crisis PR managers and lawyers in an attempt to prevent the book's release and suppress information about their portrayal in the chapter. She boldly stated, 'I will not be bullied or silenced by high priced lawyers or PR crisis managers.'

Following these claims, Sacha Baron Cohen's representatives issued a statement to Variety, vehemently denying the allegations made by Rebel. The statement emphasized that the claims were 'demonstrably false' and cited various forms of evidence, including documents, film footage, and eyewitness testimonies from the production of the film 'The Brothers Grimsby,' in which both actors starred together.

The unfolding dispute between Rebel Wilson and Sacha Baron Cohen has captured public attention, with many eagerly awaiting the release of 'Rebel Rising' to gain further insights into the matter. As the controversy continues to escalate, the public remains divided on the conflicting narratives presented by the two parties.

As the release date of Rebel's memoir approaches, the anticipation surrounding the revelations about her experiences with Sacha Baron Cohen only intensifies. Fans and critics alike are poised to delve into the contents of the book to form their own judgments on the contentious chapter and the ensuing fallout between the two entertainment figures.
