Rebekah Vardy breaks social media silence with defiant message after Wagatha Christie trial defeat | The Sun

REBEKAH Vardy made a blunt fashion statement as she broke her silence following her sensational Wagatha Christie trial defeat.

Rebekah, 40, went head-to-head in an explosive £3million showdown with fellow WAG Coleen Rooney after she was accused of leaking stories to the press.

She was savaged by a judge after Coleen won the landmark libel case – bringing an end to the three-year saga.

Following Friday's verdict, Jamie Vardy's wife – who will now be forced to cough up and pay her rival's multi-million pound legal costs – has broken her silence on Instagram.

She uploaded a shot to her Stories which showed her facing away from the camera, wearing a black leather jacket scrawled with the words: "Normal is boring."

She paired the spray-painted garment with denim shorts and boots.

Looking like she was set for a picnic, Rebekah carried a Waitrose Bag For Life in her left hand while she flashed a peace sign to the camera on her right.

It comes as The Sun exclusively revealed how Coleen is in talks to haul Rebekah back into court in a new Wagatha clash.

She is to meet lawyers in the next few days to discuss launching her own legal action in the wake of her stunning libel win.

Becky, 40, pictured grinning out riding yesterday, is also said to be considering an appeal following her crushing defeat.

After the damning verdict was handed down, Rebekah insisted the judge "got it wrong" in a statement.

She said: "I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the judge has reached.

"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.

"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."

It comes after Coleen revealed she was "pleased" with the ruling but said she "never believed" the case should have gone to court "at such expense in times of hardship for so many people when the money could have been far better spent helping others".

Coleen told how she was left with "no alternative" but to go through with the case to "defend" herself and end the leaking of stories.

She added: "Both before and after my social media posts in October 2019, I made every effort to avoid the need for such a drawn out and public court case. All my attempts to do so were knocked back by Mrs (Rebekah) Vardy.

"These leaks from my private Instagram account began in 2017. They continued for almost two years, intruding on my privacy and that of my family.

"Although I bear Mrs Vardy no ill-will, today's judgment makes clear that I was right in what I said in my posts of October 2019.

"Finally, I would like to thank all of my legal team, my family, friends and everyone who supported me, including the public, through this difficult and stressful time."

In her judgment, Mrs Justice Steyn said Coleen's viral "reveal" post was "substantially true" and in the public interest.

She also said Rebekah "knew of, condoned and was actively engaged" in leaks to the media by her agent Caroline Watts.

The judge found Rebekah "deliberately withheld evidence" during the trial and that the deletion of WhatsApp messages central to the case was "deliberate rather than accidental".

Mrs Justice Steyn also said her evidence was "manifestly inconsistent" with other evidence on "many occasions".

Rebekah was "generally unwilling to make factual concessions" while on the stand, the judgment read.

Mrs Justice Steyn said: "It was evident that Mrs Vardy found the process of giving evidence stressful and, at times, distressing.

"Nevertheless, I find that it is, unfortunately, necessary to treat Mrs Vardy's evidence with very considerable caution.

"There were many occasions when her evidence was manifestly inconsistent with the contemporaneous documentary evidence, e.g. in relation to the World Cup 2018 and the photoshopped pictures, and others where she was evasive."
