The news comes as Rebekah is set to head-to-head with Coleen Rooney, after sources claimed their High Court battle is due to begin in a matter of weeks.
According to The Mirror, Coleen, 38, and Rebekah, 38, will face off in November – one year after the former accused the latter of leaking stories about her to the press.
Rebekah, wife of footballer Jamie Vardy, is seeking substantial damages in the subsequent libel trial, as she claims to have suffered ‘severe and extreme hostility and abuse’ in the fallout after the claims were published on Instagram.
Coleen’s very public feud began when she accused Rebekah of leaking stories to the press last year, a claim Rebekah vehemently denies.
It has since been claimed that Coleen wants to undertake ‘forensic analysis’ of Rebekah’s electronics to look for evidence, according to a report from The Sun.
The full statement: Coleen’s very public feud began when she accused Rebekah of leaking stories to the press last year, a claim Rebekah vehemently denies
A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘Coleen met with her lawyers and they’ve told her they need to continue putting together more evidence.
‘She needs to prove that Becky was directly responsible for the leaks or, at the very least, that the information came from her social media account.
‘Coleen is adamant she is right, but in a legal setting the evidence she has may not be enough to cross the threshold.’
