• It's Rebel Wilson vs. Sacha Baron Cohen
  • Rebel claims Cohen tried to "silence" her
  • THIS is the reason for the beef

The actress vows not to be bullied, promising the truth will come out in her book, set to release on April 2. This article unpacks the controversy, Wilson's steadfast stance, and the industry's reaction to the unfolding drama.

The claws come out

In a jaw-dropping Instagram Story, Rebel Wilson, the comedic powerhouse behind 'Pitch Perfect,' dropped a bombshell that's got Tinseltown buzzing! She's pointing fingers at none other than Sacha Baron Cohen, accusing him of trying to "threaten" her into silence over her juicy memoir, 'Rebel Rising.'

But Rebel's not having it! "I will not be bullied or silenced," she declares, pen and binder in hand, ready for battle!

"The 'a – – hole' that I am talking about in ONE CHAPTER of my book is Sacha Baron Cohen," Rebel boldly reveals. The internet went wild, with fans and foes alike chiming in.

Some express shock, while others joke, "How shocking that he would allegedly threaten legal action against Rebel Wilson." The sarcasm is palpable, folks!

This isn't the first rodeo for Rebel speaking her mind about the 'Borat' star. She's been vocal about her experiences with Cohen, once dubbing him "outrageous" on air. Yet, Cohen's camp fires back, calling the claims "demonstrably false." Who to believe?
