Wayne Rooney's wife conducts Instagram sting operation

Wayne Rooney's wife conducts Instagram sting operation

Wayne Rooney's wife, Coleen, might just be the best detective since Sherlock Holmes.

Wayne is one of the most famous English soccer players in the world and spent 13 seasons starring for Manchester United, the most famous English team. Thus, he and his wife deal with plenty of tabloid coverage.

Coleen announced Wednesday that over the past five months, she's conducted her own investigation to find out which of her supposed "friends" has been leaking information to the press. After blocking all but one of her followers from seeing her Instagram stories and then posting fake news bits, Coleen revealed her suspect. It turned out to be Rebekah Vardy, wife of Jamie Vardy, who's a striker for Leicester City and has played with Rooney on the national team.

Vardy was quick to respond on Instagram.

“As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this,” she said in her post. “I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for. If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself. I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant. I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened.”

So, this is either an incredibly well-operated sting operation or somehow a big misunderstanding. Either way, it was a captivating back-and-forth.

The Sun, the tabloid in question in this situation, wrote Wednesday that it had asked Coleen's reps for comment, but never received one.

Wayne, on the other hand, is still scheduled to leave DC United at the conclusion of this season to be a player-manager at Derby County in January 2020.
