Coleen Rooney has released a further statement about the Rebekah Vardy S*n row, that shows she is not backing down.
Yesterday Coleen said fellow footballer’s wife Vardy shared stories about her to the press based on her personal social media posts and pointed the finger at her Instagram account.
Vardy has denied the claim and said she “never” speaks to journalists about Rooney.
Coleen posted a long statement to her social media, but as the row escalated her spokesperson issued a further update and it’s scathing.
Coleen’s spokesman said: “It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only.”
The drama started on Wednesday when Rooney posted a message on social media saying she had spent months trying to work out who was sharing stories about her.
She said: “This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it……
“For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The S*n 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.”
Rooney, 33, said she “came up with an idea” – she blocked everyone apart from an Instagram page belonging to Vardy from seeing her Instagram stories.
She added: “Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the S*n 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 flooding 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.”
Denying the allegations, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy responded: “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 & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.”
The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star added: “I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”
Vardy, who is pregnant with her fifth child, said she was “so upset” that Rooney had made the accusation, adding: “I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this.
“You should have called me the first time this happened.”
