This quote was originally said by Rooney in January, who reportedly wanted to settle the case ‘before the costs started racking up’. At the time, according to the Sun on Sunday, Rooney was ‘acutely aware of the ridiculous spectacle’ ahead of the pair’s High Court battle.
Vardy also said: ‘Let’s hope you put your money where your mouth is and some good can come of this whole embarrassing spectacle.’ She also shared another image with a sentence that read: ‘it’s always the ones with the dirty hands pointing the fingers’.
Earlier this year, Vardy sued her former friend for libel over a social media post in which Coleen revealed she had set up an investigative operation by posting false information to selected followers on her private Instagram account. After uncovering ‘who it was exactly’ leaking fake stories about her to The Sun, Coleen’s ‘big reveal’ post in October 2019 dramatically ended: ‘It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account’.
In August, news circulated that following the ordeal – which apparently took a ‘huge toll’ on Rooney and her family – would be made into a ‘tell-all’ documentary by the WAG. At the time, streaming giants Amazon Prime, Netflix, Disney+ and Discovery were reportedly in a bidding war over the rights to the project, with Disney+ said to have won the battle. The release of the series is yet to be confirmed, although Coolen and her husband, Wayne Rooney, were pictured being followed by a camera crew throughout the trail.
