Rebekah Vardy posts cryptic comment about ‘karma throwing a bowling ball at you’ amid court battle with Coleen Rooney

REBEKAH Vardy has posted a cryptic comment about "karma throwing bowling balls" amid her court battle with Coleen Rooney.

The 39-year-old mother of five is currently engaged in the ongoing Wagatha Christie saga legal wrangle with Coleen, 34.

As the 18-month feud drags on, Rebekah, who is the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, took to Instagram to post a message about "karma".

"They say people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but when karma is ready she will throw a bowling ball at your head," the post read.

Rebekah captioned the post with a "100" emoji to show her support for the statement.

In October 2019, Coleen accused fellow WAG Becky of leaking information about her.

Dancing on Ice star Becky denies the accusations and is suing Coleen for damages for libel.

In January, the High Court ruled the post "clearly" identified Becky as "being guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust" Coleen alleges.

The court heard the two wags had agreed for a "stay" of the proceedings until February so there could be "one final attempt to resolve the matter without the need for a full trial".

Becky sued Coleen last June, claiming she "suffered extreme distress, hurt, anxiety and embarrassment as a result of the publication of the post and the events which followed".

In her written case, her lawyers said the abuse she received made her "feel suicidal", adding: "She suffered from severe panic attacks and anxiety which manifested in being scared to leave her house."

Becky claimed her husband Jamie was targeted during football matches, with opposition fans chanting "your wife is a grass" for up to five minutes at a time.

But Coleen's lawyers said the post was "entirely legitimate and justified" and referred to Becky's "exceptionally close relationship" with journalists.

It was revealed this week that the WAGs could be forced to hand over their phones and laptops as the Wagatha case still drags on.

The women are expected to call expert witnesses if the trial goes ahead which would involve an analysis of "data on relevant personal devices".

It means both sides could be ordered to hand over their phones, laptops and iPads as part of any disclosure for a thorough forensic examination.

John Samson, for Coleen, told the court a search of the devices and requests to social media platforms – including Instagram – would reveal who accessed Becky's accounts when and where from.

It would also reveal the log-in history, posted media, connections, direct messages, who was blocked and when and searches made.

Despite previous peace talks falling apart, the preliminary hearing heard both women should try to settle “if they can” as the costs continue to spiral.

If the case goes to trial, Becky is expected to spend an estimated £897,000 while Coleen is expected to spend £465,000.

At a brief preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Coleen’s barrister John Samson asked the court to “reject the claimant’s cost budget and ask them to review it because, in the words of my lay client, it is grotesque”.

But before the case goes to trial, Becky's lawyers are expected to submit an application to "strike out" some, or all, of Coleen's defence and seek a summary judgement.

A summary judgement in her favour would remove the need for a libel trial and bring their 18-month feud to an end with Becky crowned the victor. 

In a three-hour Zoom summit in February, Coleen had launched a last-minute bid to settle the feud – with both her and Becky making a "substantial donation" to charity under the plan – which Vardy rejected.
