Coleen Rooney was accused by Becky Vardy of trying to destroy her after it became clear that Coleen’s ex-husband had joined Coleen in sensational ‘Wagatha Christie” battle.
Rebekah, 39, is suing Coleen, 35, for libel at the High Court after the wife of footballer Wayne Rooney accused her of leaking ‘false stories’ about the Rooneys in October 2019, following the social media ‘sting operation.’ Rebekah refutes the claims.
Jamie Vardy’s spouse posted on her blog following the announcement that Stephen Clarke, 56 (a man she shared a troubled relationship with in 2005), had joined Team Coleen.
Becky claims that he assaulted her in the past. He has denied this claim repeatedly.

She said: I feel the time has come where I may need to start speaking out a little more. It seems like an evil threat to me who has survived.
“I’ve already spoken out about the mental vulnerability that I have suffered from abuse.
“This is a legal matter that has been about clearing my record.

“It’s important that women are able to share their stories without fear or being used as weapons against them.
The support offered by ‘Speaking Out’ is for the many women struggling to break their cycles and end relationships.
Stephen is among the witnesses who have given statements to support Coleen’s case, according to sources.
MailOnline reached out to him and he was very tight-lipped about the evidence.
According to a source, Steve Clarke was Becky’s second husband. This means that if Clarke is called upon to provide evidence at court, this could prove explosive.
Becky stated in 2017 that her 10 month relationship with The Sun in her 20s was hell.
She explained that although I am aware of the similarities between Zsa Zsa Gabrielor and Zsa Zsa Gabor when it comes to having three marriages, she said that after a hard childhood, some silly mistakes led her to go out with snakes.
Becky met Stephen after she divorced Mark Godden.
She said of her marriage to Stephen: ‘That quickly became a horrible relationship — I was scared of him. He told me what to do and where to go, as well as how to act.
Outcry: Becky took to her blog in the wake of the news that Stephen Clarke, 56, (pictured) who she had a turbulent relationship with around 2005, had joined team Coleen – In the past he has vehemently denied Becky’s allegations that he abused her during their time together
Fury: Becky discussed domestic violence in an emotional post
When she was 23, and had been eight months pregnant with another man, Clarke became her husband. She stated, “It was my biggest mistake.”
Weeks later, she had eldest daughter Megan, now 16.
Becky, a mother-of-five, told The Sun that he forced her to move overseas as soon as she was born. He wanted us to flee to Cyprus because he claimed that he owed the money.
“It went downhill thereafter. I became violent toward him. He was a cheater, he lied.
“It lasted for ten months, before I fled back to the UK together with my child after he had cheated on it.
Clarke was sentenced two years later for reckless driving in an accident that resulted in the death of his grandad and father.
His car was parked in the opposite lane, on a Paphos Road.
Becky stated that he was given his divorce papers because he had been a bad person while in prison. I was devastated at another failed marriage — now I realise I had a lucky escape.’
Stephen said to the paper that he was a faithful husband, and that he never cheated Becky. He also didn’t ever raise his hand to her. Two people were killed in this tragedy. It was an awful accident.
The Sun filed a complaint against him with IPSO, the press watchdog. They failed to report that Becky had allegedly’made’ Becky tell a tale about her night with Peter Andre.
MailOnline contacted Clarke and he declined to respond.
This comes amid claims Coleen carried out a ‘dummy run’ before launching her Wagatha Christie investigation.

Court documents that The Sun claim to have seen outline the lengths the WAG went to as she tried to identify who was leaking the stories from her inner circle to the press.
After leaking a number of personal stories, Coleen claimed that she started her business in January 2019.
After realizing her private Instagram account was responsible, the mother-of-5 began to compile a list.
Coleen shared a lot of her personal stories on Instagram. Rebekah was the only one who saw them.
Coleen claims that Jamie Vardy’s spouse Becky saw only five of these posts.
These false stories appeared later in media.
Her famous words were: “I saved and screenshotted all original stories that clearly showed only one person has seen them.” It’s ……………. Rebekah Vady’s.
The documents also detail five exceptions as well as two dummy posts that ran from April 2019 in the court fight.
Coleen claimed that Becky saw the posts, and she also witnessed one additional person. However Coleen says that she cannot recall the identity.
Statement: Coleen, who revealed she set the trap to find out who caused the leaks in the WAGs’ home, sparked a feud that resulted in Coleen being called ‘Wagatha Christie.’
Tom Cleverley (ex-Manchester United midfielder) saw another of the positions, and two other were seen unidentified.
According to The Sun, court records claim that none of these posts were published to the media.
According to the Sun, these documents say: She believed that Claimant had caused the leak because of her past and practice in providing information private to journalists.
“The Defendant heard rumors that Claimant may have been responsible for leaks similar to those of celebrities, so he did not deny these rumours.
Feud. Coleen initially accused Becky that she leaked ‘false tales’ about her private lives in October 2019. This was after she had conducted a long-running’sting operation’. (pictured in 2016.)
MailOnline has contacted Coleen and Rebekah’s representative for a comment.
It come after the news that Coleen is set to sign a £1million deal to make a documentary film about her WAG war and libel battle with Rebekah, according to a report.
The Mirror reports that Coleen will “present all her evidence in support of Becky” in the documentary. It is possible for filming to begin in January, prior to the start of the Libel Trial due in summer.
Coleen’s friend told the publication that Coleen had remained silent since his famous online posting. This could change with what may be the television event of the century.
“Viewers will see the entire evidence Coleen has collected via online sleuthing. They’ll also see the reasons Coleen is certain that Rebekah leaked her stories and those of others.
“She wants to make it public and allow people to decide for themselves.” These talks are extremely advanced.
“Coleen has been thinking hard about what her next steps will be and it could be the right time to put her head above her parapet. She believes she is a strong advocate for the cause and would like to make it known.
A friend said that Becky’s team might see the show ahead of trial as a hostile act, but Coleen was on a mission.
The show is reportedly being made by Lorton Entertainment who are also making her husband Wayne’s football documentary titled Rooney.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Coleen Rooney, Rebekah Vardy and Lorton Entertainment for a comment at the time.
