"I was on and off on the Raya app, but this was a friend set up”
Rebel Wilson confirmed she is in a relationship.
During an appearance on the "U Up?" podcast, the "Pitch Perfect" star revealed that she had recently found love, telling show hosts, "I am now happily in a relationship."
After trying her hand at a celebrity dating app, Wilson revealed that the couple had been set up by a mutual friend.
"I was on and off on the Raya app, but this was a friend set up," she explained. "He'd known both of us for at least five years each, and was like, 'Yeah, I think you two would hit it off,' and then we did."

She noted of her dating experience, "I think that escalates things quicker, [meeting someone] from a trusted source. So then you're like, okay, I can trust this person, that they are legit, they are who they say they are – which is something on the [dating] apps you don't really know."
Back in February 2021, People Magazine reported that Rebel had split with her ex-boyfriend Jacob Busch after making their relationship Instagram official four months before.
"Jacob was an amazing guy but just not the one for her long-term," the publication reported a friend of Wilson's said of Busch.

"This is the first guy she's met who is a match for her humor and personality. Someone who has his own life and success and isn't intimidated by her," a source revealed to People. "He's entrepreneurial and they're both very business-minded."
