City of love Rebel WilsonFans were able to see her romantic Parisian date with her girlfriend Ramona Agruma.
“Circled the block and eventually got a great parking spot 😜,” the Pitch PerfectThe 42-year-old actress wrote via Instagram Tuesday, June 21 along with a photo of herself posing in front a red Ferrari while she was sightseeing in Paris. Wilson shared a few more photos from her outing via Instagram Story. She also included a photo from her dinner date at an outdoor cafe with the fashion designer.
The photo was taken by Agruma and Wilson together with a friend.
The Senior YearStar has revealed that Agruma is now her partner, more than a decade after her split. Jacob Busch. “I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess 💗🌈💗#loveislove,” she wrote via Instagram on June 9, along with a sweet selfie of the happy couple. Though Wilson’s announcement was met with nothing but love and support, she later confirmed that she was pressured into making her relationship public before she was ready.
“Thanks for your comments, it was a very hard situation but trying to handle it with grace 💗,” the Bridesmaids actress wrote via Twitter on June 11, after Australia’s Sydney Morning HeraldWilson confirmed that reporters gave Wilson a deadline for responding to questions about her new romance. (Wilson’s relationship with Agruma is her first public romance with a woman.)
“It was with an abundance of caution and respect that this media outlet emailed Rebel Wilson’s representatives on Thursday morning, giving her two days to comment on her new relationship with LA leisure wear designer Ramona Agruma, before publishing a single word,” an op-ed published that same day recalled. “Big mistake. Wilson opted to gazump the story, posting about her new ‘Disney Princess’ on Instagram.”
The editorial was criticized and the publication denied any wrongdoing. “To say that the Herald ‘outed’ Wilson is wrong,” a note from the editor read at the time. “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.”
However, two days later, the columnist who wrote that original op-ed apologised for his actions. “I genuinely regret that Rebel has found this hard. That was never my intention,” he wrote in an article published on June 13. “The Herald and I will approach things differently from now on to make sure we always take into consideration the extra layer of complexities people face when it comes to their sexuality.”
Wilson and Lemon Ve Limon founder Wilson have been enjoying a lovely European vacation despite all the drama surrounding their coming-out announcement. On Saturday, June 18, the Australia native shared a picture from the pair’s trip to Sardinia, where the couple beamed and held hands while walking through the streets of Italy. “🇮🇹 Ciao bellas 🇮🇹,” Wilson captioned the post, while Agruma shared the same pictures on her own account with a similar caption: “Bella Italia 🇮🇹.”
Wilson first indicated that she was seeing a new person last month when she revealed that Agruma was introduced by mutual friends. “It was a friend set-up,” the Cats actress said during a May appearance on the “U Up?” podcast. “He’d known both of us for at least five years each, and he was like, ‘Yeah, I think you two would hit it off.’ And then we did!”
She continued: “I think that escalates things quicker, because it’s from a trusted source. You’re like, ‘Yeah, OK, I can trust this person.’ They are who they say they are, which is something on the apps that you don’t really know.”
