Rebekah Vardy disclosed she has fallen prey to hateful trolls following with a row with Coleen Rooney. The star, who is currently pregnant, revealed her unborn baby is also being targeted. This week, Coleen alleged that Rebekah was leaking stories from her private Instagram account to the press. Rebekah denied the accusations and asked Coleen to speak to her in private rather than making it a spectacle. "I liked you a lot Coleen and I'm so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I'm heavily pregnant," Rebekah, who will be having her fifth child soon, told Mirror UK. She also shared some of the abusive messages she has been receiving.
This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it...... pic.twitter.com/0YqJAoXuK1— Coleen Rooney (@ColeenRoo) October 9, 2019
Rebekah also mentioned an expletive filled message that had been sent straight to her personal inbox on the site. Rebekah shared the name of the troll and wrote, "....well played" alongside it. The publication reported how Rebekah was “inconsolable” following her very public spat with Coleen.
A friend of Rebekah's said, “She called Coleen and said, ‘What’s this, why didn’t you just call me?’” Rebekah later told Coleen in a furious post online, “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. If you thought this was happening you could have told me and I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.” She continued, “Over the years various people have had access to my Insta. I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened.” Rebekah’s legal team have now launched a forensic IT investigation to try to prove her innocence.
