A few months ago, it was reported that Colleen accused Rebekah of selling stories about her life to The Sun, a prominent UK magazine.
Since then, the two have been loggerheads as Rebekah, 38 denied any wrongdoing while saying that the event caused her to have severe anxiety attacks as she was pregnant at the time.
Rebekah Vardy has now dragged Colleen Rooney to court over the events of last year. She claims that the allegations damaged her reputation.
Paul Lunt, of Brabners, said: “It is disappointing that Mrs Vardy has chosen to issue court proceedings. Coleen feels that the time and money involved could be put to better use; her offer to meet face to face still stands. Mrs Vardy’s decision to issue court proceedings does at least mean that Coleen’s evidence can be made public when the time is right.”
The combined legal fees are set to cost up to £1m, The Sun reported.
