A lawyer has suggested that Rebekah Vardy’s attempt to protect his reputation by bringing a Coleen Rooney defamation trial is “not going well at the moment”.
The WAGs are facing off against each other in High Court today in the third day of Wagatha – a trial that has been delayed from bombshell claims to bombshell claims, all given the price tag. estimated £2 million.
The pair have been in a whirlwind since then accusing wife Jamie Vardy’s account of leaking ‘false stories’ about her private life in October 2019.
Rebekah, 40, denies the charges and is suing Coleen for libel damages over a ‘false and baseless defamation attack’.
Attorney Jonathan Coad appeared on Good Morning Britain alongside Angie Best to discuss the case, which he said was always a “huge risk” for Rebekah.
Presenter Susanna Reid asked Jonathan: “We’re hearing a lot of dirty laundry in that trial and the only people benefiting are the attorneys – as a solicitor, isn’t that the case? ?”
“In many ways, I’m sorry to say and I could act on behalf of most attorneys,” replied Jonathan. “It’s always been a big risk for Rebekah Vardy because she’s going to be tested very thoroughly and that process is going to bring a lot of dirt out and that’s really what’s happening.
“So I’m afraid it’s an exercise in protecting her reputation, but things aren’t going so well right now.”
Meanwhile, Angie admitted that she thought the incident was just a waste of time.
She said: “Of course they have the right to voice their grievances but I just think it’s sad that things have gone this far. And if these two girls can’t fix it in the playground, you have to to the principal’s office, I assume!
“They’re lucky enough to be privileged to be able to do this, but I just think their ego has made them better.”
