Battle of the Footballer wives: Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen calls out Jamie Vardy's wife
Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen Rooney has accused Leicester City player Jamie Vardy's wife Rebekah Vardy of sharing her personal life stories to The Sun newspaper in the UK.
Rooney took to her social media accounts and said that:
"For a few years now someone I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories."
"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 my Instagram stories except ONE account. (Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while.)"
However, that wasn't all. Rebekah Vardy then took to her own social media handles to share her side of the story and said:
"As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this. I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me over the years can vouch for. ‘If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my Insta and just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself."
Apart from being embroiled in a very public spat, the news has captivated people on social media.
