As she returns to social media following her high-profile libel trial against Coleen Rooney, Rebecca Vardy has shared a cryptic message on Instagram. According to the judge, it was "likely" that Vardy's agent at the time, Caroline Watt, passed information to The Sun directly.
The wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy sued Rooney for defamation after she publicly accused her of infiltrating tabloids with false stories about her. According to Rooney's statement following the ruling, she is "pleased" with the outcome.
The judgment made it clear that I was right in what I said in my posts of October 2019," she said.
After the ruling, Vardy returned to social media on Sunday. She took a picture of herself throwing up a peace sign, with her back to the camera. She wears a leather jacket with the words "normal is boring" written in bold pink letters. Vardy said she is "extremely disappointed and saddened" by the judge's decision following the ruling.
Neither was I expecting nor believe it was just an outcome. As a result of the judge's decision, I am devastated.'“ The judge rejected Coleen's claim that I was the Secret Wag and also accepted that the publication of her post was not in the public interest.
“The rest of her judgment, however, was flawed, and I cannot accept it. According to Rooney's tweet in October 2019, Vardy had shared posts from her private Instagram account with The Sun. She suspected the leak was the work of someone she "trusted."
She restricted access to her private Instagram Story in an attempt to find out who was sharing the information. I had a suspicion after trying for a long time to figure out who it was. As a means of proving this, I came up with an idea," she said.“A series of false stories have been posted over the past five months to see if they make it into The Sun.
That's exactly what happened! According to her, "I now know for certain from which account/individual it originated. As a result, I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories, which clearly show that only one person has viewed them.
The account belongs to Rebecca Vardy."In the viral post, Rooney's investigation methods were compared to those of Agatha Christie. As Vardy responded to the allegations on her own Twitter account, she took the opportunity to deny those allegations and said that she "never" talks to journalists about Rooney.
