Rebekah Vardy’s lies get exposed

Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy
A UK judge on Friday effectively branded England footballer’s wife Rebekah Vardy a liar as she rejected her “Wagatha Christie” libel suit against Coleen Rooney, following a trial that lifted the lid on celebrity skullduggery.
High Court judge Karen Steyn found that allegations made by Rooney against Vardy were “substantially true”, and that Vardy was “substantially engaged” in the release of damaging stories to The Sun newspaper by her agent. Vardy’s husband Jamie plays for Leicester City, while Rooney is the wife of former Manchester United star Wayne.
