Wayne Rooney could not help but smile after Rebekah Vardy’s lawyer called out his private social media account in court on Tuesday.
Wagatha Christie, known formally as Vardy vs Rooney, is an English court case being heard in the High Court of Justice following a libel claim made by Rebekah. The WAG is suing the fellow footballer’s wife Coleen for libel, after she made allegations that Rebekah had been supplying stories from a private Instagram account to The Sun.
Vardy denies the claims.
During the proceedings on Tuesday, Wayne, Manchester United’s all-time goalscorer could not help but smile after it was revealed Rebekah’s lawyer knew his private Instagram profile, which appears to have 167 followers and is following 378.
The exchange at the high court was transcribed by GB News reporter Ellie Costello as…
Vardy’s lawyer: “I believe you have a private Instagram too?”
Wayne: “Yes that’s correct.”
Vardy’s lawyer, squinting through his glasses: “Is that… Wazzaroon08?”
Wayne, smirking: “Yes, that’s correct.”
On day six of the proceedings, the court heard that Wayne asked had asked Jamie if his wife could cut back her public activities during Euro 2016 in France, as it was causing ‘distractions’ for the England team.
Wayne said during the trial that the then-England manager Roy Hodgson and assistant manager Gary Neville were worried about Rebekah’s decision to begin working for The Sun.
Rooney said today: “They asked me as captain to see if I could speak to Mr Vardy on issues regarding his wife. We all knew that it was an awkward subject so I needed to speak to Mr Vardy and ask him to speak to his wife – and ask him to ask his wife to calm down.”
"I think there was a few things at the time with Rebekah that the leaders of the team asked me to speak to Jamie about.
"I was at the understanding Rebekah had a column in The Sun newspaper and as I state… I obviously had better things on my mind. It was obviously awkward for me.”
The Three Lions were knocked out of the competition in the Round of 16 by Iceland, who beat Hodgson’s side 2-1.
The trial continues.
