Rebel Wilson didn’t appear to have a care in the world as she left a taping of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday, just hours after the news her book was being pulled from both online and bookstores in Australia.

The actress’s memoir release has sparked a slew of controversy in recent days after she made some rather shocking allegations about her former The Brothers Grimsby co-star Sacha Baron Cohen in the tome. 

The actress, 44, looked far from concerned about the drama, smiling for the cameras as she left the NBC studios in New York.

She wore a stylish plain black dress for her TV appearance and in one moment flashed her sparkling engagement ring for the cameras.

The blonde will appear in the episode alongside American actress Alison Brie

On Tuesday, Rebel posted on Instagram announcing the book was on sale in the US, however, many of her Australian fans took to the comments to complain about the delay in Australia.

‘I pre-ordered a copy from Big W in [Australia] and recently received a refund and notification that they were no longer stocking the book. Devastated!’ one comment read.

‘This happened to me too! I can’t see it available anywhere in Aus now,’ wrote another disappointed fan. 

On Facebook, another Rebel fan reported that their local bookseller said the book was being recalled to be reprinted to ‘have some parts redacted’.

In a passage from Rebel Rising, The Pitch Perfect star makes shock claims about her experience with comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Rebel played Sacha’s on-screen girlfriend in the 2016 comedy The Brothers Grimsby and made a series of allegations about her uncomfortable experience during shooting.

She alleged that on the set of the Louis Leterrier-directed film, Sacha would ask her to strip off for scenes despite her ‘no nudity’ rule, in a string of claims which Sacha has strenuously denied and says are contradicted by evidence.

In a memoir passage obtained by People Magazine, she shockingly alleged that Sacha requested she ‘stick her finger up his a**’ because he thought it would make a funny scene in the film and claimed ‘it felt like [he] had sexually harassed me’. 

She alleged that she felt ‘completed disrespected, which led to me treating myself with even more disrespect by eating in an extremely unhealthy way’.

Rebel claimed that during filming, Sacha would repeatedly ‘mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene‘, which she alleged was in ‘no way essential’ to the film’s plot.

In her book, which was released in the US on Tuesday – though its Australian release has been delayed indefinitely, she wrote: ‘It felt like every time I’d speak to SBC, he’d mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene. I was like, “Ha, I don’t do nudity, Sacha”.’

Rebel claimed she was allegedly summoned by a product assistant for an additional scene while shooting in Cape Town, South Africa. 

She said: ‘OK, well, we’re gonna film this extra scene,’ SBC says. ‘Then he pulls his pants down’, SBC says very matter-of-factly: “OK, now I want you to stick your finger up my a**.” And I’m like, ‘What?? … No!!”’

Rebel claimed she was shocked and wanted to get out of it, adding: ‘I was now scared. I wanted to get out of there, so I finally compromised: I slapped him on the ass and improvised a few lines as the character.’

However, newly emerged footage from the sex scene in the 2016 film seems to show that the action was part of the script and the actress was on board with the scene.

Several never-before-seen clips from the movie that failed to make the final cut were obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com and depict Rebel and Sarah’s characters using a cellphone to film themselves getting intimate.

In the clips, Rebel can be heard discussing the scene while on camera but out of character, telling Sacha: ‘I’ll do a slap [of your butt] and I’ll do a – going down the crack’, to which he replies: ‘It’s almost as if you’re going to ram your fingers inside,’ prompting her to answer ‘yeah‘.

According to those close to Sacha, director Louis Leterrier had to discuss any nudity or sex scenes with Rebel before they were shot. They say she agreed to the scene.

She alleged that on set, Sacha would ask her to strip off for scenes despite her 'no nudity' rule, in a string of claims which Sacha has denied and says are contradicted by evidence

They also say that the cell phone was used because the movie called for Rebel and Sacha’s characters Dawn and Nobby to use an iPhone to film themselves having sex.

However, in a statement given to DailyMail.com, Rebel doubled down on her book’s description of Sacha as an ‘a**hole’.

‘It is an a**hole move to release footage of one part of that disgusting episode while leaving out everything that preceded it including my horrified refusal to stick my finger up SBC’s butt,’ she said.

‘This could not have possibly been for the film as the director Louis Leterrier was not even present,’ she claimed.

‘What this edited video shows is what I had to do in order to get out of the room, as written in Rebel Rising. Releasing unauthorized and misleading behind the scenes video without my approval is SBC’s latest way of bullying and gaslighting me.’

Sacha has strongly denied ever mistreating Rebel or pressuring her to be naked in the film.

A spokesperson for Sacha said: ‘While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby.’

Sacha’s team also provided nine anonymous statements from crew members that backed the claim that the scene was in the script.

Daily Mail Australia contacted Sacha’s representatives for further comment at the time.
