    LONDON (AP) — A long-running showdown between two celebrity soccer wives has resulted in a ruling that one of them most likely was behind the leak of personal information to the press. Coleen Rooney, left; Rebekah Vardy. (Associated Press)  Rebekah Vardy said she was “extremely sad and disappointed” at Friday’s decision, which in effect called her a liar and a sneak. Vardy sued Coleen Rooney for libel after Rooney said a sting operation proved her private Instagram posts had been leaked by Vardy. Both women are celebrities in Britain’s tabloids because they are married to famous footballers Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney. In a devastating blow to Vardy, who launched the libel suit to defend her reputation, Judge Karen Steyn on Friday said Rooney’s allegation was “substantially true.” Steyn said it was likely that Vardy’s agent, Caroline Watt, had passed Rooney’s private information to The Sun newspaper, and that “Mrs. Vardy knew of and condoned this behavior.” Rooney said she was pleased with the verdict, but added that “it was not a case I ever sought or wanted.” “I never...
    Rebekah Vardy, wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy (L), leaves the Royal Courts of Justice following the final day of the high-profile trial dubbed by the media as "Wagatha Christie" case where Rebekah Vardy is suing Coleen Rooney (R) for libel after being publicly accused of leaking private stories to the press on May 19, 2022 in London, England.Wiktor Szymanowicz | Future Publishing | Getty Images LONDON — The so-called "Wagatha Christie" trial that has gripped the British public reached a verdict on Friday, with Rebekah Vardy losing her libel case against fellow soccer star wife Coleen Rooney. The U.K. High Court ruled against Vardy and in favor Rooney after a years' long dispute between the two "wags" — soccer players' wives and girlfriends — which featured all the twists and turns of one of Agatha Christie's finest mystery novels. Judge Justice Steyn delivered her written verdict Friday following a vitriolic and salacious two-week trial in May. It comes two years after Vardy sued Rooney for defamation after a dispute over a string of Instagram posts. Rooney alleged that...
    LONDON (AP) — In a legal showdown between soccer spouses that mixed celebrity, social media and amateur sleuthing, a judge has ruled whodunnit. Judge Karen Steyn on Friday cleared Coleen Rooney of libeling Rebekah Vardy when she alleged that Vardy had leaked her private social media posts to the tabloid press. The judge said in a written ruling that Rooney’s allegation was “substantially true.” Steyn said it was likely that Vardy’s agent, Caroline Watt, had passed private information to The Sun newspaper, and that ”Mrs. Vardy knew of and condoned this behavior.” Vardy sued after Rooney accused her in 2019 of sharing the Instagram content with The Sun. The case, heard at the High Court in May, was a media sensation. The women are celebrities in their own right, and both are married to famous footballers: Vardy to Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy, Rooney to former Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney. Then there was the amateur detective work that led to Rooney’s accusation. Rooney, 36, has said she purposely posted fake stories on Instagram to find...
    One of the most ridiculous and engrossing trials in modern legal memory finally came to a conclusion on Friday. After one soccer player’s wife accused another of leaking stories about her to the tabloid press in 2019, we couldn’t have foreseen the rollercoaster of secret messages, suspiciously lost evidence, and downright hilarity which was to follow. Such was the drama that—before the case even had a verdict—Channel 4 announced it would turn the saga into a TV docudrama. On Friday, a judge ruled against Rebekah Vardy, wife of Leicester City player Jamie, in her libel case against Coleen Rooney. Vardy had tried to claim she’d been defamed by Rooney—whose husband Wayne coaches MLS team D.C. United—when Rooney accused Vardy of selling stories to The Sun newspaper. Rooney first made the allegation against Vardy in spectacular fashion three years ago—earning comparisons to Agatha Christie—when she publicly revealed the details of an ingenious sting operation designed to catch the person who was selling stories about her. On Oct. 9, 2019, Rooney gathered an entire nation into the proverbial drawing room to unmask...

    LONDON (AP) — A high-profile libel court battle between two British soccer spouses concluded Thursday, with one lawyer accusing the claimant, Rebekah Vardy, of deliberately destroying key evidence that allegedly showed she leaked her opponent’s private social media posts to tabloid reporters. Vardy, the wife of Leicester City star Jamie Vardy, brought the defamation case against fellow soccer wife Coleen Rooney after an online spat between the two women spiralled. The falling-out grabbed national headlines in October 2019 when Rooney, who is married to former Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney, said she purposely posted fake stories on Instagram over several months to find out who was passing her private information to The Sun newspaper. In a social media post that quickly went viral, she declared that Vardy was responsible because she had blocked everyone except an account belonging to Vardy from seeing her Instagram stories. The case, which is being closely watched in Britain, has been dubbed the “Wagatha Christie” trial — a play on “WAG,” a slang term for wives and girlfriends of soccer players, and...

    Rebekah Vardy has denied that she is set to flee the UK to make home in the US with her footballer husband Jamie Vardy after the catastrophic Wagatha Christie libel trial.  After a week of the Wags taking the witness box at London's High Court, it has been reported that the couple are planning to move across the pond regardless of how the trial ends. A source told The Sun that Vardy is 'keen' to get out of the UK 'as fast as possible' after the fallout of her 'disaster' of a libel trial. But a spokesman for Rebekah Vardy told MailOnline: ‘The story in The Sun newspaper claiming the Vardy family are planning to move to the United States is categorically untrue.’  Vardy and Coleen Rooney have been battling it out in the High Court this week after Coleen publicly accused Rebekah of leaking stories about her to the Sun newspaper after carrying out a social media sting.

    MUCH has been written about how the only winners in the Wagatha Christie saga are the lawyers. But no. Trundling up on the rails is one Wayne Rooney. 6Wayne Rooney, after 19 years of patchy form, is finally stepping up to the front 6Wayne has been glued to Coleen’s side at her trial A man who, after 19 years of patchy form, is finally stepping, nay galloping, up to the front. While Rebekah Vardy’s husband, Jamie, is conspicuous by his absence, day after day former racehorse owner Wayne has been glued to Coleen’s side. To paraphrase Martine McCutcheon, this is his perfect moment. Dutifully lugging in his wife’s wheelbarrow-sized Fendi bags — she has been sporting a collection of decidedly more delicate Chanel ones — Wayne has been little short of stoical at London’s High Court.

    LONDON (AP) — The woman known to British tabloid readers as Wagatha Christie testified Monday about the sleuthing techniques that led to her nickname, saying she posted fake news about herself on social media as a ruse to discover who was leaking stories about her family to the press. The testimony from Colleen Rooney, wife of English soccer hero Wayne Rooney, came in the fifth day of a libel trial at the High Court in London that pits her against the wife of another soccer star. With the wives and girlfriends of top players known here as WAGs for short, Rooney became known as Wagatha Christie soon after the story of her detective work became headline news. The nickname is a tabloid homage to the detective novelist Agatha Christie. Rooney posted false information about herself on Instagram after blocking all of her followers except the suspected leaker. Then she waited to see if any of the stories appeared in print — and they did. “I wanted the story to run so I had evidence,” Rooney testified. “I didn’t want the...

    LONDON (AP) — A high-profile libel court battle between two soccer spouses, in which one publicly called out the other for allegedly leaking made-up stories to the tabloid press, opened Tuesday in London.
