Coleen Rooney ‘ready for a scrap’ in court over Rebekah Vardy libel drama

Coleen Rooney has reportedly said she is ready for a scrap in court over the Rebekah Vardy WAGatha Christie drama.

The 34-year-old has had a libel case submitted to the High Court against her by Rebekah, 38, after last year's scandal.

The pair have been at loggerheads ever since last October when Coleen accused Rebekah's Instagram account of leaking stories about her to the press – something Rebekah denies.

Coleen's new confident statement comes after Becky reportedly launched a bid to get her into court more quickly.

According to The Sun, Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen told friends she is not intimidated by “strong-arm tactics”.

A source told the publication: “Coleen’s totally confident.”

The insider also said Coleen thinks Becky’s attempt to force her into a libel trial as soon as possible is “a laughable strong-arm tactic”.

They added: “Coleen thinks it’s laughable. She is confident and is certainly not dragging her heels.

“Coleen changed her legal team and they are compiling the evidence and preparing to put forward the strongest case possible.

Coleen has said she won’t be bullied by strong-arm tactics, nor will she back down. Becky’s team are trying to flex their muscles.

"But they wanted a fight so Coleen’s going to bring them one.”

Daily Star Online has contacted a representative of Coleen for comment.

According to reports, Becky, who is the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 33, wants an interim hearing later this year.

An attempt at mediation between the WAGs failed after Becky asked for a full public apology.
