Sacha Baron Cohen Denies Rebel Wilson's Harassment Claims In Memoir

Rebel Wilson in blue formal

Sacha Baron Cohen is denying Rebel Wilson's claims after she said on social media that the 'Borat' star is attempting to prevent her from publishing her memoir, which includes a chapter that exposes his behavior. Wilson and Baron Cohen appeared together in the 2016 film 'The Brothers Grimsby,' where Wilson alleged that Baron Cohen pressured her to appear nude on set.

Baron Cohen released a statement through a spokesperson, stating that Wilson's claims are 'demonstrably false' and are contradicted by extensive evidence, including documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from the production of the movie.

Wilson had previously hinted on social media about a 'massive a**hole' she had worked with, who had hired a crisis PR team and sent her threats. In a recent Instagram update, Wilson explicitly named Sacha Baron Cohen as the individual she was referring to in her book.

Wilson had also mentioned in older posts that Baron Cohen was trying to prevent the release of her book, but she remained determined to share her truth with the public.

In a radio show interview from 2014, Wilson recounted an incident on the set of 'The Brothers Grimsby' where Baron Cohen allegedly pressured her to go naked for a scene. Wilson claimed that Baron Cohen even suggested she stick her finger up his butt for a comedic bit, despite it not being in the script.

These allegations have sparked a public dispute between Wilson and Baron Cohen, with both parties standing by their respective accounts of the events that transpired during the filming of 'The Brothers Grimsby.'
