Vardy loses ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel case against Coleen Rooney in July
Coleen Rooney is reportedly set to earn more money than her football manager husband Wayne after signing a multi-million pound deal with Disney+.
The WAG, 36, who won the Wagatha Christie trial against arch nemesis Rebekah Vardy earlier this year, is said to be set to film an exclusive tell-all documentary with the streaming giant.
Disney+ reportedly went head-to-head against rivals Netflix, Amazon Prime and Discovery to seal Coleen’s signature, with the Liverpudlian mother-of-four being offered a lucrative salary to seal the deal.
It is said to be being made by Lorton Entertainment, which released her husband’s Rooney documentary this year, and will go into detail about her fact-finding mission which led to the falling out with her former friend.
Coleen won the blockbuster libel case in July after a nearly three-year battle with Rebekah, 40.

The trial was centred around the now-famous Wagatha Christie post, which Coleen shared on her social media accusing Jamie Vardy’s wife’s Instagram account of leaking stories about her to the press.
The multi-million pound contract will easily eclipse former Derby manager Wayne’s current deal with MLS side DC United, where he is reportedly earning £800,000 a year as their head coach.
A source told The Sun : “This is a massive deal for Coleen — in every sense. Since her first damning social media post outing Rebekah, she has remained steadfastly silent.

“Now the public will see first hand the toll this whole case took on her, and her family — and why she took the action she took.
“Cameras had — and continue to have — unfiltered access to her home. Viewers will see what was going on in Coleen’s head in the weeks after her infamous ‘…it’s Rebekah Vardy’s account’ post. It will be TV dynamite.”
The long-running saga between the two WAGs started in October 2019 when Coleen said she had carried out a “sting operation” and accused Rebekah’s account of leaking “false stories” about her private life to the press.

Coleen planted fake stories on her Instagram during the sting operation which featured her travelling to Mexico for a “gender selection” procedure, her planning to return to TV, and the basement flooding at her home.
It is believed the total costs of the case will be in the region of £3 million, with Rebekah having to foot the bill for most of the legal costs.
The Mirror has contacted representatives of both Coleen and Disney+ for comment.
