Rebekah and Jamie Vardy left court early before an IT expert stated during the Wagatha trial that Ms Vardy’s account had not been hacked and that messages sent to her agent had been “manually deleted”.
Cyber expert Matt Blackband told the court that Ms Vardy changed her Instagram password five days after the post revealed Coleen Rooney’s Wagatha Christie.
Mr Blackband said the password was changed at 3:23 a.m. on October 14, 2019, and told the court: ‘From what we’ve seen, there’s no evidence of a breach of that account.’ ‘
Ms Rooney’s lawyer David Sherborne said two series of WhatsApp messages between Rebekah Vardy and Caroline Watt had been lost.
Ms. Vardy said the first group – between 2017 and 2019 – disappeared when she tried to send them to her attorney.
Mr. Sherborne asked for the most likely explanation for the absence of WhatsApp messages between October 15, 2019 and July 25, 2020.
Mr Blackband replied: “Based on the information provided, I would suggest that it was a manual deletion.”
Mr Sherborne said Rebekah had suggested they must have been lost when she got a new phone.
Mr. Blackband replied: “There was no indication of a new device on that date.”
This comes after Jamie Vardy criticized Wayne Rooney for speaking “nonsense” in the stands.
His comments come after a statement in court from Mr Rooney that he had been asked to tell Mr Vardy’s wife Rebekah to “calm down” during Euro 2016.
Mr Vardy said on the steps of the high court: “Wayne is saying nonsense. He must be confused because he never spoke to me about the issues related to Becky’s media work at Euro 2016.
“Nothing to say, I know this because I discussed everything with Becky.”
Mr Rooney said today in his evidence that he had an allegedly “awkward” conversation with Mr Vardy regarding Rebekah Vardy.
He told the court: “It was awkward for me to have to talk to a teammate about his wife.”
Mr Rooney claimed they went to a game room to sit down and chat.
Mr. Rooney said he had a coffee and Mr. Vardy had a red bull.
He told the court: “It was an awkward moment for me to have to speak to him.”
The trial continued.
