Now, let's go back to May 2022, when Rebel alleged in an interview with People magazine that she was sexually harassed by a male costar several years earlier.

"He called me into a room and pulled down his pants," Rebel alleged, claiming that the male actor asked her to perform a lewd act.

"It was awful and disgusting. And all the behavior afterwards — this was all before #MeToo — where they kind of tried to destroy me and my career. If it had happened after #MeToo, then I could have just blasted them."

So according to Deadline, Rebel recently claimed in a post on her IG story that a male celebrity has "threatened" her ahead of the release of Rebel Rising because of what she wrote about him in the book.

In the since-deleted post, Rebel said that "the asshole," who is apparently the focus of an entire chapter of the book, "is trying to threaten me. He's hired a crisis PR manager and lawyers."

"He's trying to stop press coming out about my new book. But the book WILL come out and you will all know the truth."
