Rebekah Vardy took a thinly veiled swipe at enemy Coleen Rooney on Instagram by alleging she is “doing fake coffee run photos” to her 427,000 followers.
Coleen, 35, is often pictured near her Cheshire home holding a coffee cup while donning fitness gear.
Her arch-nemesis Rebekah, who she is currently locked in a High Court battle with, which has been infamously dubbed Wagatha Christie, apparently couldn’t resist a jab.
According to The Sun, Rebekah sniped: “Maybe I should start doing fake coffee run pics.”
This comes after Rebekah was ordered to pay a chunk of Coleen’s legal fees earlier this month.
Coleen is being sued by Rebekah over a tweet posted in October 2019 that accused Becky’s Instagram account of leaking stories about her to The Sun.
In the saga, Coleen told how she planted fake stories on her Instagram and blocked all her social media followers apart from Becky’s account to out the leak.
Coleen claimed she saw the false stories appear in The Sun newspaper and she went public on Twitter with her allegations.
Rebekah, who was pregnant at the time, strenuously denied Coleen’s claims and said the stress of the tweet made her fear she would miscarry her child.
In the latest blow to Rebekah, she is going to have to fork out a huge amount to cover part of rival Coleen’s fees.
Coleen will have to pay to re-plead her case after parts of it were thrown out by a judge, as well as cover the cost of Becky’s revised reply to her new case.
Becky has been ordered to pay 30% of the costs, estimated to be around £10,500.
Her representative told the Mirror: “The Judge has struck out about 10 pages of material from Mrs Rooney’s defence as irrelevant or a waste of court time.
“Mrs Rooney has to re-plead the part of her public interest defence which was said by the Judge to be ‘impermissible’. This is now Mrs Rooney’s third attempt at a putting forward a defence to Mrs Vardy’s libel claim.
“She has been ordered to cover the costs of this exercise and Mrs Vardy’s costs of amending her Reply.
“The Judge made three costs orders – two in favour of Mrs Vardy and one in favour of Mrs Rooney for £10,500.
“Although the Judge did not allow the Summary judgement application, she said in her judgement that there was ‘some force’ in Mrs Vardy’s case that there are very significant differences between the TV Decisions Articles and the post on which it is supposed to be based. This goes to the heart of the case.”
They went on: “Mrs Vardy is not the Secret Wag. The Judge has made clear that the identity of the Secret Wag does not go to the core issues and has reserved the ability to cut out or limit this issue in the future.
“Mrs Vardy is completely confident that she will succeed at trial.”
Alongside this latest update in the legal battle, an insider has also told the outlet that lots of “industry figures have come forward” to help Coleen’s side to “present further evidence concerning Rebekah Vardy’s dealings with The Sun.”
A source said: “Coleen’s legal team will present further evidence concerning Rebekah Vardy’s dealings with The Sun and her association The Secret WAG.
“Lots of industry figures have come forward. It could be Pandora’s box for Rebekah.”
