Coleen Rooney accuses Rebekah Vardy of passing her private information to the Sun. Apparently, she discovered this after running an elaborate sting operation that involved placing false stories in the tabloid newspaper.
A bit of a background story…
Coleen Rooney is an online influencer who is the wife of the former England international player, Wayne Rooney. She said she just had to act after a series of posts on her private social media account appeared in the media.
Coleen Rooney has publicly accused Rebekah Vardy of being the individual who was leaking the private information. Rebekah is the wife of fellow England footballer Jamie Vardy.

In response to this, Vardy has denied any involvement. She said she had never spoken to journalists about Rooney, even though many had called her.
She also appeared to imply that her Instagram account may have been improperly accessed by a third party. “If you thought this was happening you could have told me and I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped,” she said.
On Wednesday, a tweet from broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire said that Vardy had instructed lawyers to carry out a “forensic investigation” on her Instagram account to see who had accessed it and when.
The Sun has not disputed Rooney’s suggestion that Vardy was the source. But it has amended all the disputed stories on its website to note that they could have been fabricated.
The claims come at an awkward time for the Sun, which is already facing a legal case from Prince Harry against its publisher for alleged phone hacking and defamation.
