Coleen Rooney, the wife of ex-Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has accused Rebekah Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy of ‘selling stories’ about her private life in a bombshell Instagram post.
Coleen, 33, took to social media on Wednesday, October 9, to reveal she had suspected someone she trusted had been betraying her for years and she came to the conclusion that her friend Rebekah is responsible.
According to her, she has been creating false Instagram Stories on her private page to identify the culprit and even had to block all her friends apart from Rebekah, but the stories surprisedly appeared in The Sun.
Coleen said stories about her basement flooding, returning to TV and gender selection were only viewed by Rebekah.
In a statement released via her Twitter and Instagram accounts respectively, she wrote:
“For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories,” she wrote.
“There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family — all without my permission or knowledge.
“After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion.
“To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram except ONE account.
“(Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while.)
“Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper.
“And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flood in my new house.
“It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.
“I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them.
“It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”
In response to the accusation, Rebekah Vardy, who is currently pregnant with her fifth child denied all accusations and even slammed Coleen for going public when she is heavily pregnant.
