Coleen Rooney has shared an X-ray of her broken foot as she hit back at Rebekah Vardy, who claimed that she was "milking" her injury during their court showdown.
The two WAGS faced each other in court after Rebekah, 40, sued Coleen, 36, for libel, after Coleen accused Rebekah of leaking stories from her private Instagram account to the press.
Coleen, wife of Wayne Rooney, subsequently won the case, and Rebekah was ordered to pay up to £3million in legal fees.
Mother-of-four Coleen wore a plastic grey air boot throughout the trial, after breaking her foot during a fall at home, but Rebekah has accused her of "milking it" for sympathy during the trial.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Rebekah was asked if she thought that Coleen was “milking the moon-boot”, Rebekah laughed and said: “Ohhh I couldn’t possibly [comment]…”
Coleen hit back as she posted an X-ray of her broken foot on Twitter on August 2, as she wrote: "Boot's finally off after my break".
The WAGs' seven-day Wagatha Christie trial came with many twists and turns, and messages between Rebekah and her then-agent, referring to Coleen, were exposed.
In her ruling, Mrs Justice Karen Steyn said it was “likely” that Rebekah's agent at the time, Caroline Watt, “undertook the direct act” of passing the information to The Sun, condemned "vile" trolls who sent abuse after Coleen's initial post, and labelled Rebekah's evidence "manifestly inconsistent" with other evidence heard by the court.
Coleen released a statement after the judgement, in which she said that she never wanted the case to go to court, and she referenced the "expense" of such a case.
Her statement read: "It was not a case I ever sought or wanted. I never believed it should have gone to court at such expense in times of hardship for so many people when the money could have been far better spent helping others.
"Both before and after my social media posts in October 2019, I made every effort to avoid the need for such a drawn out and public court case. All my attempts to do so were knocked back by Mrs (Rebekah) Vardy.
"This left me with no alternative but to go through with the case to defend myself and to end the repeated leaking of my private information to The Sun.
"These leaks from my private Instagram account began in 2017. They continued for almost two years, intruding on my privacy and that of my family. Although I bear Mrs Vardy no ill-will, today's judgment makes clear that I was right in what I said in my posts of October 2019.
"Finally, I would like to thank all of my legal team, my family, friends and everyone who supported me, including the public, through this difficult and stressful time."
