The Senior Year star Rebel Wilson is reportedly off the market! She recently stated that she is seeing someone at the moment after being set up via a mutual friend. Keep scrolling to know more about Wilson’s new romance.
What did Rebel have to say about her new relationship?
During a guest appearance on Wednesday’s episode of Jordana Abraham and Jared Freid’s podcast “U Up“, the 42-year-old spilled the beans on her relationship status. She said, “I am now happily in a relationship.”
Wilson further added, “I met them at a friend’s setup.” She revealed that she had been on dating apps before but she was ultimately introduced to her new significant other through a pal.
The Pitch Perfect actress continued, “I was on and off on the Raya app, but this was a friend setup. He had known both of us for at least five years and he thought we would hit it off — and then we did!”
Rebel went on to say that she thinks that meeting someone by a friend is sometimes better than swiping through an app because it is a vetting process. She said, “I think that escalates things quicker, meeting someone from a trusted source. I can trust that they are who they say they are, which is something that you don’t really know on the apps.” She did not give away the identity of her mystery man.
