Coleen Rooney has spoken out about her marital troubles with England star Wayne during her defamation trial with Rebekah Vardy.
The 40-year-old made the comments regarding a post on her personal Instagram with Wayne and her children in 2017.
Although the post was not featured in The Sun article, an image of herself and the children she posted on her public Instagram was used solely as a reference to the Wayne photo.
Rooney is being sued by Vardy for defamation following her now famous tweet, Wagatha Christie, in which she accused the WAG of leaking information from her personal Instagram account.
Hugh Tomlinson QC, for Vardy, is asking Rooney about personal information she believes has been shared by his client with The Sun.
At the time, there was speculation that the couple had split after Wayne was stopped by police for drinking with partygoer Laura Simpson in Cheshire.

Coleen was pregnant with the couple’s fourth child at the time.
Giving evidence, Rooney said: “With the pajama post, at that time there was a situation where my husband did something wrong, but I was in a loophole situation.
“I don’t know how my marriage will turn out. I didn’t know what was going on in that relationship so we agreed to work things out.
“I did not settle on this. Are we getting back together?
“At this time, there were rumors that I had returned home because I spent a lot of time at my parents’ house.
“It’s information that I’m happy to share with my private team, and we’re trying to work out the relationship and see where things go. But I don’t want the public to know that. I don’t want them to know, ‘this is us getting back together’. I know how nimble the press is to jump on things.”
She told the court she had dealt with the press coverage for “years” but that the case with Vardy was “different”.
Rooney said: “I am very sad when my personal information was published in the newspaper. I have suffered from it for many years.
“It was a group of people that I accepted into my personal space and they went on to the national newspapers with millions of people and put out my personal information without my consent. ”
She said she was “surprised” it generated as much interest as it did and denied knowing Vardy would be abused because of it.
“That was not my intention at all,” she said. It is not my nature to cause abuse or troll in any way. “

When asked by Tomlinson how she could know Vardy was liable if someone else had access to her account, Rooney said: “Looking at the documentation I had because it seemed Mrs Vardy knew a lot. many things are going on.
“All in addition, the messages Mrs. Vardy often sends me are always direct, I never text her.
“She is not in my circle of friends. I feel like when she contacts me and always is to get information about me. That’s always when something bad is going on in my personal life. She used to say ‘Are you okay?’ Which ion at first I felt was generally nice but towards the end I thought it was something wrong.
“Someone who wasn’t close to me would keep checking in with me all the time. It happens often that when things don’t go my way, Mrs. Vardy will text me.”

She told the court she was “fuming” about a January 2019 Sun article about her alleged involvement in a car crash in the US while she lived there.
This week, Vardy was charged and denied directing agent Caroline Watt to release the story to the press.
“I’m driving in the US, I’ve never done that before and I’m not used to driving on the side of the road,” said Rooney. A truck crashed into the side of my car.
“There were no children in the car and no families. We don’t have to stop at the scene. It is really damage to the car, no accident.
“The fact that The Sun is reporting untrue makes me angry when it comes to public that someone is continuously posting information from my personal Instagram no matter how big or small and I am annoyed, I am angry.” .
Rooney told the court it happened during a “terrible period” when the family had just moved to the US after Wayne was signed to DC United.
She explained that she “never believed in homesickness” until moving to Washington, and that she “cries every night” as she misses her family in the UK.
The trial continued.
