Coleen Rooney has accused Rebekah Vardy of selling fake stories about her to the press.
The 33-year-old made the accusations on Instagram, alleging that she set up a plot to expose her fellow WAG.
However, Vardy has denied the allegations.
Coleen wrote: ‘For a few years now someone I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.
‘There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge. After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. ‘To try and prove this, I came up with an idea. I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except ONE account. (Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while.)’
Coleen continued: ‘Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories if they made their way into the Sun newspaper. And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flooding in my new house.
‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.

‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s…… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
Coleen captioned the statement: ‘This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it……’ The mum-of-four, who is married to Wayne Rooney, has yet to post the alleged screenshots.
Rebekah fired back in her own statement, writing: ‘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 over the years can vouch for.
‘If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my Insta and just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.’
The reality star continued: ‘I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I liked you a lot Coleen and I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant. ‘I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened.’
She concluded her post with a broken heart emoji. Rebekah followed Coleen’s personal Instagram Lloyd supported Coleen, leaving a string of rat emojis under the statement and writing: ‘on a serious note though who does that it’s terrible.’
England footballer Toni Duggan also commented: ‘Wow!! This is disgusting!!!! Hope your ok [sic].’
Rebekah, 37, is currently pregnant with her fifth child, her second with footballer Jamie Vardy.
The WAG achieved further fame in 2017 when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! She and Coleen became pals as their husband played alongside each other for England.
The latest story Coleen alleges that Rebekah gave to the press was that her Cheshire home had flooded during Storm Lorenzo. The report cited a source as saying that Coleen had pushed back the completion date on the renovation to the family home due to the damage. The source said: ‘The house is Wayne and Coleen’s dream, so to see it being damaged has been horrible for them.’
Coleen also cited a story from Heat magazine, claiming that the star wanted to return to television.
