Rebel Wilson told friends she had ‘NEVER been in love’ before her gay BFF set her up with fashion designer Ramona Agruma

Rebel Wilson’s best friend has revealed the actress told him she had ‘never really been in love’ before he set her up with new girlfriend Ramona Agruma.

Actor and singer Hugh Sheridan said he was determined to find Rebel’s perfect match after she made the sad confession about her love life.

‘I’d been setting Rebel up with various people and Ramona up with various people. I’m a bit of a matchmaker in my spare time, but Rebel was a really hard one and so was Ramona,’ he told 2Day FM’s The Morning Crew on Friday.

‘I was in New York and I had just split up with my ex when Rebel said to me, “I can’t imagine how sad you must feel. I’ve never really been in love before.”‘

Hugh said that after she told him this, he was determined to find his BBF a suitable partner – and instantly thought of their mutual friend Ramona.

‘I think for a woman that is successful, it takes a strong man to stay with them, but I thought a woman with a woman that’s successful might lift each other up,’ he added.

‘So I told Rebel later on and they spoke for a week before Rebel came back from Australia to meet her, and they’ve been together ever since.’

Although Thursday marked Rebel and Ramona’s official debut as a couple, the pair have actually been spotted together on several occasions in the past few months – even making a joint red carpet appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars party back in March.

Other than her coming-out post, Rebel hasn’t shared any other details about her girlfriend, who is the owner of the sustainable fashion brand Lemon Ve Limon.

The actress did reveal last month that she was dating someone, although she kept their identity under wraps, telling People that she had been set up with her partner – thought to be Agruma – ‘through a friend’, before spending weeks ‘getting to know each other on the phone.
