Rebekah Vardy breaks down in tears as she tells how sick trolls threatened to rape her baby daughter in Wagatha row

REBEKAH Vardy broke down in tears as she told the Wagatha Christie trial that sick trolls threatened to rape her baby daughter.

The mum-of-five, who was seven months pregnant with the tot when Coleen Rooney accused her of leaking stories, wept as she gave evidence today.



She has faced a full day of questioning at the High Court, with a judge hearing a series of bombshell allegations that she leaked information to the media.

Towards the middle of the afternoon, she began to sob as she told of the impact the accusation has had.

Evil online ghouls said her newborn should be "put in an incinerator", while others said Rebekah was a "rat-faced b***h".

Coleen's barrister reassured her there would be no questions on the trolling, and the judge asked Becky, 40, if she'd like a break.

However, Rebekah replied as she reached for the tissues: "I don't think it's going to make any difference, to be honest."

It comes amid the trial's most sensational day so far.

Private messages between Rebekah and her agent Caroline Watt were admitted into evidence.

The WhatsApp chats appear to show that:

  • Becky considered leaking information about a "well-known celebrity" who was having an affair with a footballer. She told the court she was "joking"
  • She branded fellow WAG Danielle Lloyd a "nasty b***h"
  • Miss Watt suggested Rebekah leak information about Premier League footballer Riyad Mahrez to Sky News. Becky said today she was "just gossiping" and had no intention of doing so
  • She branded Coleen Rooney a "c***" after learning Wayne's wife had unfollowed her on Instagram

Rebekah also admitted she'd tried to talk to journalists about drink-driving Premier League ace Danny Drinkwater.

Messages revealed she was "fuming" that she didn't authorise Miss Watt to leak information relating to his arrest "earlier", it was heard.

She told the court today she was "deeply affected" by those who drink before getting behind the wheel because her ex-husband "killed two people" during their marriage.

Coleen was seen taking notes today as Rebekah spoke. Husband Wayne has stared ahead throughout the evidence, rather than looking at Rebekah.

The court heard Miss Watt is not fit to give oral evidence to the trial, and will not be quizzed.

However, she is likely the "conduit" for the alleged leaks, it was heard yesterday.

Coleen and Rebekah have been at war since October 2019, when Coleen publicly accused her rival of leaking "false stories" about her private life after a month-long "sting operation".

The 40-year-old, who is married to striker Jamie Vardy, denies the accusations and is now suing for libel.

Under English defamation law, the burden of proof now will be on Coleen to prove that her post was "substantially true". The trial continues.
