Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy to finally face off in court ‘next week’
WAGs Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy are reportedly due to come face-to-face at London’s High Court as soon as next week as they battle over the explosive Wagatha Christie scandal
Coleen Rooney is reportedly set to come face-to-face with rival Rebekah Vardy next week.
The footballers’ wives and former friends are due for a showdown at London’s High Court.
While it was known that the two women would meet within weeks to battle it out over the Wagatha Christie scandal, it’s now said that they’ll come together next Thursday.
The Sun reports that a judge is expected to make a crucial ruling on the claims made by Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen.
After more than a year since Coleen’s explosive social media statement saw her nicknamed Wagatha Christie, Jamie Vardy’s wife Rebekah is bringing libel proceedings against Coleen.
It all started in October last year when Coleen shared an explosive statement on Instagram.
She said he had laid a trap on her personal Instagram account after realising that someone was leaking stories about her to the press.
Coleen said she had blocked everyone but Rebekah’s account from seeing her posts, only to discover that the information was still being leaked to the press.
She shared her detective work, telling the word that it was “Rebekah Vardy’s account” who was behind the leaks.
Rebekah vehemently denied she was the one responsible, and said she was upset that she had to deal with such allegations while she was pregnant.
She is now suing Coleen for libel. She claimed that numerous people had access to her account and that Coleen should have come to her with her concerns rather than sharing them so publicly.
Several attempts to settle the case outside of court have failed.
Both women are now expected at their first High Court hearing next Thursday.
A judge will decide how Coleen’s claims should be interpreted, and if they meant Rebekah herself was to blame or if it was someone else who had access to her account.
The ruling could be crucial in determining the outcome of the legal battle between the women who were once friends.
They were often pictured together supporting their husbands at England matches, but they’ve been at loggerheads ever since Coleen’s statement last year.
