Coleen Rooney 'signs Netflix documentary deal' amid Wagatha Christie caseMay 8, 2022
Coleen Rooney has reportedly signed a documentary deal with Netflix amid the explosive Wagatha Christie case.
The wife of former England player Wayne Rooney has accused fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy of leaking stories about her private life to the press, with the case now in court almost three years after the initial accusation.
Rooney – who has been dubbed Wagatha Christie – said she had planted three stories on her private Instagram that only Vardy’s account was able to see, and all three stories ended up being leaked to the press.
Vardy, wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, denies having leaked the stories and is suing Rooney for libel.
According to reports, production on Rooney’s documentary has already started, aims ‘to speak from the heart.’
‘Coleen has done the clever thing and got in to tell her story before someone else muscles in,’ an insider told Mail on Sunday.
The publication also claimed that Vardy is in talks to have a sit-down interview with broadcaster Piers Morgan, although ‘nothing has been signed yet.’
On Friday, Rooney’s lawyer David Sherborne, claimed that Vardy believes Watt may have been the source of the stories in a new witness statement.
In written submissions, Sherborne said Vardy’s new statement ‘suggests Ms Watt was the source of the leak but claims that (Mrs Vardy) “did not authorise or condone her.”‘
He added: ‘It now appears…that she too “believes” that Ms Watt is the source.’
The barrister continued: ‘The collapse of Mrs Vardy’s case over the last day has been remarkable.
‘As of the evening of April 27 2022, in an abrupt change of position to her pleaded case since the outset, Mrs Vardy appears now to accept Mrs Rooney’s case: that Caroline Watt, Mrs Vardy’s close friend and PR, was the conduit by which stories from the defendant’s private Instagram account were leaked to The Sun through her access via Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
However, Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Vardy, told the court that his client’s new witness statement did not contain ‘any change whatever in the pleaded case’.
A judgment on the trial is expected at a later date.
