Player women: "Wagatha Christie": dispute between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy becomes a play

This row had it all: jealousy, millions, gossip, and in the midst of it all, two of England's best-known player wives, Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney. Ironically, the producers of Agatha Christie's drama "Witness for the Prosecution" want to stage the quarrel between Vardy and Rooney for London's West End.

"The process fascinated me," says the producer of the play, according to the British "Guardian". "I felt like it was an extraordinary example of celebrity culture. Usually celebrity and libel trials are a little grim and of course that had an impact on Vardy and Rooney as individuals, but it felt crazy doing it made it to the Supreme Court," she explains. The date of the performance has yet to be announced, it is said to be a single evening in late autumn.

But what was "Wagatha Christie" actually about? On her Instagram and Twitter profile in October 2019, Coleen Rooney accused her actual girlfriend Rebekah Vardy of betraying and betraying her. For a long time she suspected that someone from her circle of friends would pass on details from her private Instagram stories to the British newspaper "The Sun" and therefore considered a strategy to convict the traitor.

"I blocked everyone from seeing my Instagram Stories except for one account," she wrote on Instagram in 2019. "I've been posting a bunch of fake stories over the past five months to see if they would make their way onto The Sun. And you know what? They did!" explained Wayne Rooney's wife. "I've taken and saved screenshots of all of the stories clearly showing that only one person saw them. It's...Rebekah Vardy's account." Vardy defended herself loudly against the allegations and repeatedly emphasized that she had not betrayed Rooney, ultimately she sued for defamation. Under British law, Rooney, nicknamed "Wagatha Christie" because of her detective work, had to prove her allegations in court.

At the end of June, Coleen Rooney won the defamation case against Rebekah Vardy in a London court. Vardy could face around £3million in legal fees from both sides. The judge in charge ruled that Vardy leaked stories about Coleen Rooney to the press.
