Everything You Need To Know About WAG Feud Between Rebekah Vardy And Her Frenemy Coleen Rooney

Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy are both WAGs, which is an acronym for the wives and girlfriends of athletes. Coleen is married to Wayne Rooney, an English soccer player who has played for Manchester United for 13 years. Rebekah’s husband, Jamie Vardy, plays as a striker for Premier League club Leicester City and the England national team. The two husbands actually played on the same team for the English national team which is what brought the two wives together.

The two were supposedly friends until Rebekah allegedly sold Coleen’s stories to the news media outlet, The Sun. The public found out about this information when Coleen put Rebekah on blast via Twitter stirring up the ultimate scandal. Rebekah's response was that her Instagram was hacked and that she wasn't the one who shared Coleen's stories to the news outlet. The stunned public even retaliated against the very pregnant Rebekah, not holding back from vicious comments.

Coleen's Twitter post reads: “For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing the Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.”

Here's everything you need to know about the WAG feud between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney.

1. She blocked all but one person on her Instagram because she had a hunch on who it was.

In her Twitter post, she shared, “After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion,” Rooney writes. Here’s where it gets good: “To try and prove this, I came up with an idea. I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except ONE account.” Apparently, this intuition seemingly checked out because after this move, Rooney’s stories in fact continued to appear in The Sun.

2. Rooney posted fake information to her story to see if it would get published.

According to Vox, over the last five months Rooney posted a bunch of false information to see if they ended up in The Sun —​ and they did. “On August 15, The Sun published a story about Rooney and her husband traveling to Mexico to seek controversial gender selection treatment. On September 28, the paper published a story about Rooney possibly joining the BBC reality show Strictly Come Dancing; a third piece about a supposed flood at the Rooney’s Cheshire mansion was also published by The Sun."

3. Rebekah responded to the accusation.

Rebekah addressed the drama to her defense on Twitter as well. She writes, “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 to over the years can vouch for.”

4. Rebekah requested an investigation to prove her innocence.

According to the BBC, Rebekah requested that her lawyers to conduct a “forensic investigation” on her Instagram account to prove her innocence. If this investigation occurs, it will be interesting to see what they find.

5. The Sun took down one of the fake stories.

According to The Guardian, “Outlets including MailOnline, the Mirror and Metro.co.uk, which had rewritten The Sun's original stories for their own websites, have removed or heavily rewritten their articles.” The most recent article quoted a “source close to the couple” as the source.

This gives a really bad look for the "source close to the couple" and the media outlets involved, questioning their credibility. It shows just how far some outlets will go to obtain their information and proves that you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.

6. Rebekah’s dad shared his thoughts on Twitter.

Even Rebekah’s dad has commented on the scandal sticking to Rebekah's story that her Instagram was hacked. He mentions that there is no real gain from this accusation considering Rebekah doesn’t need the money. “I felt I had to say something because my daughter is so upset by the whole thing. Rebekah has only ever had praise for Colleen — I’m just stunned. Why would my daughter want to make money from something like this? She’s completely devastated by the whole thing,” he told the Daily Mail.
