Rebekah Vardy vs Coleen Rooney: What caused bitter feud between WAGs? Why is there a row?
Last week, drama between two Wags erupted on Twitter and soon was the driving force behind a whole host of viral memes and jokes. Now Rebekah’s footballer husband Jamie Vardy has unfollowed fellow football star and Coleen’s husband Wayne Rooney on Twitter.
But what is causing a bitter feud between WAGs? Why is there a row?
On Wednesday, October 9, Coleen released an explosive statement on Twitter, telling her 1.2million followers Rebekah had been leaking stories to The Sun.
The 33-year-old revealed she had turned detective and changed her Instagram settings so only a few of her followers on her private Instagram account could see her stories.
She then fabricated incidents which were reported in The Sun and worked out only one person could have sold the stories, and said she had screenshots as evidence of this.
Coleen ended her statement with the now-iconic “It’s………. Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

The post went viral, and a wealth of hilarious responses and memes hit social media.
The exchange also earned Coleen the title “Wagatha Christie” among fans who praised her for turning detective.
Rebekah, 37, responded the same day to the accusations, replying on Twitter to Coleen saying: “I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”
Rebekah also criticised Coleen’s timing, as she and Jamie are expecting a baby in early 2020.
On the drama, a Sun spokesperson said: “Like all reputable media organisations, we don’t comment on sources.”
Appearing on This Morning, fellow Wag Danielle Lloyd said she had experienced similar run-ins with Rebekah.
However, Rebekah then lashed back at Danielle writing on Twitter: “Danielle Lloyd making false claims on @ThisMorning that we have had ‘similar run-ins’ is utter b******s.
“She is just fuming that I ‘didn’t get Jamie recruiting’ for her like she asked me to…”

Rebekah followed that tweet with another which read: “On a more serious note I’ve been inundated with messages but I’m not saying anything more until we’ve finished looking into this situation properly.”
Now it seems Jamie has unfollowed ex-England teammate Wayne Rooney on Instagram.
According to The Sun, a friend of Jamie’s said: “Jamie has always got on well with Wayne, but he won’t stand for having his wife hung out to dry in public like this.”
Another friend reportedly said: “He’s totally behind Becky and furious with the Rooneys for the way they have gone about this.
“He and Wayne always got on well and he likes him. But he has made his feelings clear.
“Cutting him off on social media is a totally deliberate snub.”
Dubbed the “War of the Wags”, the feud may lead to the courtroom as Rebekah has reportedly threatened to sue Coleen for her Twitter statement.
A friend told the Mail on Sunday: “Coleen’s view is, ‘Bring it on’. She has got the evidence – it’s all there.
“Coleen’s evidence is bullet-proof and she stands by it all. If Rebekah wants to sue, she’s welcome to.
“Coleen will fight her and the proof is there. If it’s in court, it’s not ideal but Coleen will follow it through.”
