Coleen Rooney ‘absolutely thrilled’ with Wagatha Christie Verdict: ‘Rebekah is being unapologetic’
Coleen Rooney’s said to be “thrilled” after winning the Wagatha Christie trial.
Rebekah Vardy, 40, launched legal action after Coleen, 36, who had claimed that her fellow WAG's Instagram account was linked to stories about her leaking to the press.
The seven day-long trial took place back in May and after a wait of over eight weeks, Mrs Justice Karen Steyn delivered her verdict – announcing that Rebekah lost.
In light of this, Coleen’s said to be “thrilled”.
A source told OK!: “Coleen is absolutely thrilled. This is the best verdict she could have asked for. She knew from the start that she would win, she's always known in her gut to not trust Rebekah and her gut instinct was right."
They went on: "All of her detective work has paid off and she's glad she stuck by it. Her entire family is entirely relieved.
“She's going to be celebrating with close family and friends, it's a huge weight off their shoulders and they can get on with their lives. Coleen and Wayne have been to hell and back but this will only make them stronger. This is a clean start for Coleen, a new beginning, she is so glad that it's over.”
Speaking of Rebekah, the source continued: “Rebekah is being unapologetic. She was never going to back down and even though she's been proved wrong, she still won't say sorry. It will be hard for this to not put a strain on any marriage, it was totally unnecessary.”
In light of her loss, the 40 year old broke her silence and said she was “devastated” with the verdict.
"I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the judge has reached,” Rebekah said in a statement.
“It is not the result that I had expected, nor believe was just. I brought this action to vindicate my reputation and am devastated by the judge’s finding.”
She continued: "The judge accepted that publication of Coleen’s post was not in the ‘public interest’ and she also rejected her claim that I was the ‘Secret Wag’.
“But as for the rest of her judgement, she got it wrong and this is something I cannot accept.”
The star also pleaded with vile trolls who have subjected her to abuse in the years since Coleen's initial post.
She said: “As I explained in my evidence I, my family and even my unborn baby, were subjected to disgusting messages and vile abuse following Coleen’s Post and these have continued even during the course of the trial.
“Please can the people who have been abusing me and my family now stop. The case is over. I want to thank everyone who has supported me.”
