Rebekah Vardy's Texts Calling Colleen Rooney 'C***' Read Out In Court

Rebekah Vardy's Texts Calling Colleen Rooney 'C***' Read Out In Court

Explosive text messages sent by Rebekah Vardy about Coleen Rooney's accusations have been read out in court.

In an infamous social media post in 2019, Rooney claimed Vardy was behind media leaks from her private Instagram account, in an incident quickly dubbed 'Wagatha Christie'.

Rooney said she'd become suspicious Vardy was leaking information to the press, so she planted fake stories on her private Instagram account and restricted their visibility so only Vardy could see them - and later found the fake stories had been leaked.

Vardy, however, denies the accusations, and is suing Rooney for libel.


Their case was taking part at the High Court today (8 February), where a series of text messages from Vardy to her agent Caroline Watt were read out.

As reported by Metro, Vardy wrote: "That c*** needs to get over herself!"

In another message, Vardy went on to call Rooney a 'nasty b***h', 'such a d**k’ and 'declared war'.


After Rooney's Instagram post, the wife of Jamie Vardy reportedly text her agent: "That's war."

Rooney's lawyers claim that Watt leaked information by ‘acting on [Vardy's] instruction or with her knowing approval’.

As per the written case, Vardy messaged Watt after seeing that Rooney's car had been damaged, which was shown on her private account.

Vardy apparently wrote to Watt: "Would love to leak those stories x."


The story did end up in the press, and Rooney tweeted saying it was 'sad' someone was 'betraying her' by sharing the private information.

The written submission also read Watt's later message to Vardy about the tweet: "It wasn’t someone she trusted. It was me," with a laughing emoji.

Rooney’s barrister David Sherbourne said the text 'conspicuously elicits neither surprise, contradiction or criticism from Mrs Vardy, who was plainly aware and approved of this leak'.


He said: "From the outset, Mrs Vardy has always claimed that neither she nor Ms Watt were involved in the leaking of private information from Mrs Rooney’s Instagram account.

"The recent disclosure has shown that this is emphatically not the case."

The barrister also suggests that there was 'clear motivation for Mrs Vardy to leak private information about Mrs Rooney to the newspaper, with repeated bad-mouthing of her in a way which is clearly consistent with and linked to the desire to leak private information about her’.

Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Vardy, claims that the allegations have caused his client ‘huge damage and distress’, along with claims that ‘provides no evidence that the claimant leaked the three fake posts'.


He adds that Rooney ‘relies upon selective and incomplete WhatsApp exchanges… conveniently ignoring the messages which demonstrate beyond doubt that the claimant was not responsible for leaking the defendant’s private information to The Sun'.

The hearing is due to finish tomorrow and the trial is currently scheduled to begin in early May.
