'Inundated' Vardy blasts back in bitter Rooney WAG twitter row

By Lucy Mapstone

Rebekah Vardy has been "inundated" with messages following her WAG row with Coleen Rooney over alleged leaked stories.

The 33-year-old wife of Wayne Rooney has pointed the finger at fellow footballer's wife Vardy's Instagram account over stories based on her private social media posts.

Having denied the claims shortly after Rooney's allegation yesterday, Vardy has broken her Twitter silence.

She wrote: "On a more serious note I've been inundated with messages from everyone but I'm not saying anything more until we've finished looking into this situation properly."

In a previous tweet, Vardy refuted claims made by reality TV star Danielle Lloyd - the wife of footballer Jamie O'Hara - who waded into the row with an appearance on ITV's This Morning.

Vardy, wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, was at the centre of drama on social media yesterday when Rooney posted a message saying she had spent months trying to work out who was sharing stories about her.

She wrote: "For a few years now someone I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories.

"There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family - all without my permission or knowledge."

Rooney said she "came up with an idea" - she blocked everyone, apart from an Instagram page belonging to Vardy, from seeing her Instagram stories and over the "past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the newspaper".

She said stories she had falsified about "gender selection in Mexico, and the story about returning to TV, and then the latest story about the basement flooding in my new house", had all made it into the newspaper.

"Now I know for certain which account/individual it's come from. It's ... Rebekah Vardy's account."
