The publication denied any wrongdoing. “To say that the Herald ‘outed’ Wilson is wrong,” a note from the editor shared on Sunday read. “Like other mastheads do every day, we simply asked questions and as standard practice included a deadline for a response. I had made no decision about whether or what to publish, and the Herald’s decision about what to do would have been informed by any response Wilson supplied.”

The Australian native had previously disclosed that she was in a new partnership after her Year of Love, during which she dated many people and even some surprising suitors. “I think I went out with about 50 people in that one year, but some of them were just one date and then you think, ‘Oh, no,’” Wilson said in May on the “U Up?” podcast.

The Hustle star explained, “I deliberately wanted to push myself to date a bunch of people and gain that experience, which I know is not normal, but it really helped me find out what I liked and what I didn’t like.”

Wilson described herself as “happily in a relationship,” and fans now know that she was speaking about Agruma. “I met them at a friend’s set-up. He had known both of us for at least five years and he thought we would hit it off – and then we did!” she revealed.

The law school graduate said that being set up by a friend “escalates” relationships more quickly. “I can trust that they are who they say they are, which is something that you don’t really know on the apps,” she said.
