Coleen Rooney, 33, exposed Rebekah Vardy’s, 32, Instagram account for leaking stories about her in an explosive social media statement yesterday. The star, who is married to former England footballer Wayne Rooney, 33, revealed she has been posting false Instagram stories on her private account and blocking all her other friends to prove that Rebekah’s account was the one at fault. The latter quickly denied Coleen’s accusations in a tweet which she addressed to her fellow WAG. However, according to The Mirror, friends close to Rebekah have claimed Coleen decided to publicly share her allegations due to her concerns about the Vardy brand.

An insider told the publication: “Becky and Jamie are always happy. There is no scandal with their marriage.”

They added: “Maybe to Coleen’s camp, they were overshadowing them and becoming a bigger brand and that’s why this has been so public.”

Commenting on Rebekah’s reaction to the incident, the source continued: “She’s crying her eyes out and is heavily pregnant. 

“Coleen knew Becky and was friendly with her and she didn’t know there were any issues.

“Now she’s getting relentlessly trolled and is just beside herself.”

Coleen has since denied the suggestion she is threatened by Rebekah and Jamie’s brand as a couple.

“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 Instagram except ONE account.”

 She continued: “Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see 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 flood in my new house.”

Opening up about when she discovered which account was the culprit, Coleen added: “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.”
