Rebekah Vardy makes thinly veiled dig at Coleen Rooney

Rebekah Vardy made a thinly veiled dig at Coleen Rooney with a joke about chasing “nasty pigeons” on her Instagram Story on Friday.

The wife of footballer Jamie Vardy, 40, joked that her sleeping dog should be chasing the teasing birds – after once saying arguing with Coleen was like ‘arguing with a pigeon’.

It comes after WAG Coleen, 36, won their Wagatha Christie libel battle last week – leaving Rebekah with a multi-million pound fee to pay her.

Rebekah shared a photo of her dog, writing, “I thought you were supposed to chase those pesky pigeons off Ralphy, why are pugs so lazy.”

Rebekah made the pigeon comment about Coleen after accusing her of leaking stories to the press in 2019.

She then said, “It would be like arguing with a pigeon. You can say you’re right and it’s wrong, but it’s failing your hair.’

The comment resurfaced during their recent acrimonious Supreme Court trial.

Coleen and Rebekah are set for a final dramatic Supreme Court showdown over who will foot the multimillion-pound bill for their precious ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel.

Sources close to Coleen – who won the case last week – told The Mail on Sunday she will fight to ensure that Rebekah pays the full amount, estimated to be up to £3million.

Usually a winning party will have to pay about 30 percent of the costs.

But Coleen’s team claims the judge’s scathing ruling that Becky sold stories about her to The Sun newspaper means it’s “unthinkable” that she won’t have to pay the full amount.

Justice Steyn ruled Friday that Becky and her agent Caroline Watt had leaked stories about Coleen, the wife of ex-England skipper Wayne.

Rebekah sued her former boyfriend for libel over a now-famous social media post in which Coleen described how she set up a “sting operation” by posting fake stories to select followers on her private Instagram account to discover who’s telling stories about her. leaked to The Sun.

The October 2019 “big reveal” post ended: “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account.”

After Rebekah took legal action, Coleen offered her a “drop hands” offer, which meant they would both walk away and pay their own costs. She also suggested making a donation to charity.

But Rebekah refused, leading to a costly Supreme Court trial. Now, after her win, Coleen wants her rival to pay.

A source close to Coleen said: ‘Coleen didn’t want this to happen. She knew the money could be better spent on so many other things, but she won’t let Rebekah get away without paying the full cost.

“She tried to sort this out early on, but Rebekah wouldn’t have it. And if you look at the outline of the verdict, it’s inconceivable that a judge wouldn’t agree that she will pay them in full. Let’s not forget, this action was brought by Rebekah and she lost spectacularly.’

At a preliminary hearing in March last year, the cost was estimated at £1.3 million.

Now, after the two-week Supreme Court hearing, reports claim the total could be £3 million.

Rebekah’s lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson QC, reportedly charges £10,000 a day, while his counterpart, David Sherborne, charges around £8,000.

There is speculation that Rebekah and her husband, Leicester City striker Jamie, may have to sell their Portuguese villa to pay the legal bill.
