REBEKAH Vardy was left distressed and anxious after being named as the source of media leaks by Coleen Rooney, court documents claim.
It led to internet trolls lashing out, even linking her to Islamic State and the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Coleen had “pointed the finger” at Rebekah as “the villain” who allegedly leaked stories about her private life, the High Court heard yesterday.
Footballer Wayne Rooney’s wife, 34, was dubbed “Wagatha Christie” on social media after claiming she had narrowed down leaks to a newspaper to Rebekah.
Coleen said she planted fake stories about going to Mexico, returning to TV, and a flood at her new house.

Footballer Jamie Vardy’s wife, 38, denies the accusations and is suing Coleen for libel.
