What Did Rebekah Vardy Do? Jamie Vardy Wife
Rebekah Vardy was accused of leaking Coleen Rooney's private information to the media in a social media post on October 9 by Coleen Rooney, the wife of former England player Wayne Rooney.
After conducting a months-long "sting operation," Rooney claimed in a social media post from October 2019 that Vardy had leaked "false stories" about her personal life to the media, leading to a contentious legal dispute.
The former England player, Wayne Rooney's wife, made a public accusation that Vardy's Instagram account was the source of three articles in The Sun that contained falsified information she had posted on her private account.
Over 370,000 interactions, including almost 50,000 retweets, were made with the post on Twitter, making it extremely popular.
Vardy denied leaking the stories and sued Rooney for libel, an accusation Rooney defended.
In May, both women participated in a week-long trial at the High Court in London that attracted a lot of media and public interest.
However, a judge for the High Court determined that Rooney's Instagram post accusing Vardy of sharing information with The Sun was "substantially true."
In her first interview after the verdict, Vardy gets emotional as she talks to host Kate McCann.
Jamie Vardy's wife, Mrs. Vardy, expressed that she was "extremely saddened and disappointed" by the judge's decision.
