Coleen Rooney drank a cup of tea as her eight-day trial of Wagatha Christie ended and confidently told friends: “I will be vindicated.”
The Supreme Court libel hearing ended on Thursday with Coleen’s attorney saying judge Rebekah Vardy was a “very unreliable witness”.
Rebekah is suing Coleen over an online post accusing her of leaking private stories to the Sun – something Rebekah denies did.
A close friend told the Sunday Mirror: “After the trial, Coleen drank a cup of tea and packed up for vacation, confident that she had won.
“She has told friends she will be vindicated and she is relieved that her truth is out there. This whole story was very painful.

“She doesn’t count her chickens because she knows the final decision lies with the judge – but she is adamant that she has told the truth through and through and that justice will prevail.”
Coleen and her husband, former England footballer Wayne, did not attend the trial on the final day – after the trial went overboard, clashing with a holiday to Dubai with their children.
Her attorney, David Sherborne, told the court his client fought on the basis of truth and the public interest.
Last week, the court heard text messages between Rebekah’s agent Caroline Watt and a Sun journalist who went missing when Ms Watt’s phone fell into the North Sea.
Ms. Watt was unfit to testify.
Mr Sherborne argued that, given the “hand in hand” relationship between Ms Vardy and Ms Watt, the trial to exclude her agent was “like Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark”. The Prince of Denmark – Hamlet himself – is the main character in Shakespeare’s tragedy.
The friend also told mother of four Coleen, 36, – who is set to go public about the trial in a Netflix documentary – tried to prevent the matter from going to court out of fear for Rebekah’s reputation. .
The friend said: ‘Coleen knew Rebekah’s reputation was going to be ruined, she wanted to help her and not let that happen.
“She wants to sort it out before it goes to court and she doesn’t want to see Rebekah destroyed.
“The Netflix documentary will show that she doesn’t want the Supreme Court case.”
In his own summary, Rebekah’s attorney Hugh Tomlinson said his client, 40, has “always denied being the source, directly or indirectly.”
Referring to the online abuse directed at her against Coleen’s claims, he said the case was about “the way she was treated by thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of people on social media.” festival”.
Mr Tomlinson added: “To this day she has no idea what happened. She doesn’t know where this information is coming from.”
