May 20, 2015 | By Garrett Montgomery More

Rebel Wilson’s real age is 36, not 29, according to an Australian magazine. The same publication claimed that Wilson is also lying about her name – which is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds.

Rebel Wilson‘s age is 36, not 29, according to one of her former classmates. An unnamed classmate and friend of The Pitch Perfect 2 actress spoke to Woman’s Day Magazine explaining that her real name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she is 36 years of age.

The so-called pal said:

“I studied with Rebel at Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta, Sydney.”

The person went on to add that Rebel Wilson is a fake name and in school she was known as Melanie Elizabeth Bownds. The source added:

“But no-one knew of a Rebel Wilson. Her name is – or was – Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she’s 36.”

The magazine has uncovered a play called “The Westie Monologues” written by a woman named Melanie Elizabeth Bownds in 2002 and filed in the Australian Intellectual Property Registry. The documents showed that Bownds is 36 indeed.

Now, this is where the story gets really complicated, Wilson confirmed that her full name is indeed Rebel Melanie Elizabeth, and she did attend the Tara Anglican School for Girls in Castle Hill. She claimed that she used her middle names Melanie Elizabeth instead of Rebel to avoid being teased.

“At school we went under our middle names usually. I have two – Melanie Elizabeth – so I was never under Rebel,” the How to Be Single actress shared few years ago.

The pal also slammed the claims that Wilson previously made about being poor and being raised in the ghetto. The insider revealed that Rebel or Melanie Elizabeth had an “upper-middle-class upbringing” and that the Tara Anglican School for Girls cost about $25,000 per year.

So how old is Rebel Wilson? Via Twitter, the star addressed the rumors in a funny way, of course.

“Okay but all jokes aside now…my real name is Fat Patricia x. OMG I’m actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly known as “CC Chalice” ….thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome x,” she tweeted.
