Rebel Wilson has returned about $4.2 million of the major payout she received from Bauer Media after a historic defamation win. 

The Australian actress was awarded a record $4.7 million payout in September 2017 when Bauer Media was found guilty of defaming the star in a series of articles. 

However Victoria’s Court of Appeal slashed the payout to $600,000 this year, and ordered Wilson to pay back more than $4 million plus interest.

The Hollywood actress has lodged an application for her own appeal before the High Court. 

The High Court decision will bring an end to a two-year long saga between Wilson and Bauer Media.
