You Don’t Need To Know Who Coleen Rooney & Rebekah Vardy Are To Get How Epic This Scandal Is
The Coleen Rooney VS Rebekah Vardy feud is one of the most dramatic Instagram scandals of the year, and it doesn’t even have anything to do with James Charles and/or Jeffree Star. Two British WAGs (that’s wives and girlfriends, for those of you who aren’t sports fanatics) are trending all over the world for one’s BRUTAL call out of the other on Instagram. Coleen Rooney, who some of you might know as the wife of soccer player Wayne Rooney, has accused fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy of selling stories about her to British tabloids. That’s all well and good, but apparently Coleen has actual proof. So who are these British socialites? Let us explain.
Coleen Rooney is one of Britain’s biggest socialites. She’s a television presenter, author, as well as the wife of Wayne Rooney, one of the world’s biggest soccer players who most recently played for the American MLS club D.C.
This morning, Coleen took to Instagram to upload a lengthy post which detailed how the reality star has had stories sold to the press about her for “years,” which she claims had been taken from her private, personal Instagram account. In the post, Coleen said she had a hunch as to who the person leaking her stories was, but to catch them out, she put a mastermind social media strategy into place for months.
The 33-year-old hid her Instagram Stories from every follower of her Instagram page … all but one. She then carefully curated her posts to show fabricated stories that she had simply made up to see if it would get back to the press. For example, she lied about her basement being flooded in her house, which made headlines on The Sun yesterday. She even put up a Story about a fake trip to Mexico for “gender selection treatment” in attempts to have a baby girl. That story also made waves on The Sun’s website.
When she finished detailing her intelligent scheme, the WAG revealed that the person who has been leaking her personal “stories” to the press — and she has the screenshots to prove it — is Rebekah Vardy, who’s married to another English soccer player, Jamie Vardy. SCANDAL.
Coleen and Rebekah would be friendly with one another, considering their husbands are both in the British soccer scene. So, it’s not surprising that Coleen would have her as a friend on her personal Instagram account. Since the scathing claims were made, Rebekah has responded to the allegations, and just so you know — she doesn’t need the money, mmkay?
Rebekah, who’s currently pregnant and *allegedly* on vacation, took to Instagram to respond to Coleen’s now-viral claims. Rebekah straight-up denied leaking any information about Coleen to The Sun, writing: “I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for.” Aware that she couldn’t quite dance around Coleen’s foolproof Insta Story plan, Rebekah said: “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.”
“I’m not being funny,” the 37-year-old continued, “but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?” You love to see it.
The Twitter responses to the drama are almost as juicy and hilarious as the scandal itself. Take a look.

Both Coleen and Rebekah are no strangers to public drama, so if we know British WAGs (and we do, promise), then we think this is only the beginning of Rooney VS Vardy 2019.
