Coleen Rooney breaks silence on Vogue cover ahead of bombshell Wagatha Christie documentary | The Sun

COLEEN Rooney has broken her silence on her Rebekah Vardy court battle in Vogue, saying: “What I said in that post, I still stick by today.”

The WAG, 37, told British Vogue: "I felt like everyone else has spoken about it except me. And it’s my story to tell.”

She adds that she can never forgive or forget what Rebekah did.

Coleen reveals that messages between Rebekah and her former agent which discussed her late sister Rosie, who died from Rett syndrome in 2013 aged 14.

She says: "The texts knocked me sick.

"They were just another level. When I was reading them I was thinking: the evilness and the hatred that they had for someone that they don’t even know."

Coleen also discussed her court wardrobe for the Wagatha Christie trial, which featured a medical boot after breaking her foot.

She says: "I’d rather spend money on a holiday wardrobe than a court wardrobe."

And husband Wayne was unprepared for the appearances, with Coleen adding: "It was the day before we were going to London and I was like, ‘Where are all your suits?’ He was like ‘They don’t fit me.’ So I’m like ‘s***!’ It had to be a quick fix in Marks & Spencer.”

The programmes, which are expected to air this year, will be the first time viewers have heard directly from Coleen and her football manager husband Wayne about the scandal which rocked their lives.

In October 2019 Coleen first accused Becky of leaking stories to the press about her. She went on to win a High Court legal battle with Becky last summer after the latter accused Coleen of libel.

Coleen told Vogue's September digital issue: "I feel like a lot of people still don’t understand what happened, from beginning to end.

On writing the now infamous tweet, she said: "I like a pen and paper – a pencil and a rubber, actually, so I can rub it out. So I started writing what I wanted to say and then the next morning I put it out there. That was the start of something that I would never have expected.

"All these messages of support coming in,” she says. “Then I thought, ‘Oh, my God, this has gone extreme.’”

The war of the WAGs first began when Coleen sensationally turned detective to uncover a friend who was telling tales to the media. 

She spoke out about her experiences in October 2019, ending the tweet with the jaw-dropping line: 'It's… Rebekah Vardy's account'. 

Rebekah sued the newly dubbed 'Wagatha Christie' for libel, denying she was the media source. But in July last year she lost the case when Coleen's post was found to be 'substantially true' by a judge. 

Rebekah had claimed the Instagram post had cost her a book deal and an endorsement for placenta capsules, while also acting as a lightning rod for people to abuse her on social media. 

Continuing in Vogue, Coleen talks about her relationship with Rebekah before the fallout, explaining they were "in the same world" – so thought would be similarly protective of family privacy.

She added: "We would associate because our husbands played for England together. She wasn't a friend.

"I've never socialised with her. I've never had a drink with her."

Coleen says that she didn't even run her tweet past a legal team so was immediately spooked when Rebekah threatened to bring in lawyers.

Mrs Rooney says: "I've never been in a legal case before so for me it was scary. The thing I was dreading the most was actually going to court.

“It was so difficult in that courtroom, especially watching her on the stand. It was quite painful. I felt uneasy.”

The Wagatha Christie legal fight is already the subject of a stage show and a Channel 4 drama, whilst Rebekah also conducted a tell-all interview with Talk TV.
