Former friends Rebekah Vardy is suing Coleen Rooney for libel over the dispute they had online last year. They have been at loggerheads since Coleen, the wife of former Manchester United and England striker Wayne, had accused Rebekah – who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy of giving out information about her private life to The Sun publication in 2019.
Vardy, 38 however, denied doing anything wrong stating that the stress of their public fall out made her to have severe anxiety attacks as she was pregnant at that time as the false statements were damaging to her reputation
Court listings show that Vardy had filed a case for “defamation – libel and slander” to the High Court on 12 June.
In reaction to the new development, Rooney’s legal team said she felt the “time and money could be put to better use”.
