Wayne Rooney claims he told the barrister of wife Coleen questions to ASK in her Wagatha Christie trial


Wayne Rooney has claimed he played a major role in his wife’s infamous ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial against Rebekah Vardy.

About The Infamous ‘Wagatha Christie’

Rooney’s wife, Coleen, accused Vardy of leaking stories about her to the media in 2019 after setting up an elaborate Instagram ‘sting’ to try and catch her out.

The dispute was quickly dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’ as Coleen and Vardy, the wife of Rooney’s former England team-mate Jamie, went to court to settle matters in 2022.

Rebekah Lost

Rebekah lost the libel case and was left with a £3m legal bill, with Rooney attending court throughout the two-week trial to support his wife.

What Rooney Said About the Case

The ex-Manchester United star has now claimed he took a very hands-on approach during the trial after becoming fascinated by the law, and even told Coleen’s barrister the questions that should be asked.

Reflecting on the case and how involved he was, Rooney told the Stick to Football podcast: ‘Sometimes you’ve got to have a bit of fun with the media! To be fair, it’s something that I’ve always watched and looked at as well.

The Efforts and Emotions He Gave

‘When Coleen had the court case with Rebekah Vardy, I was there with the barrister and the lawyers, and I was saying to the barrister, “you need to ask this question”.’

Whether Rooney’s influence had any impact on the final verdict is unclear, but Rooney has revealed his interest in the law did not go away after the trial.

He proceeded to open up on applying for a law course at university following the case.

Did Rooney Apply to Study Law?

However, he admitted that he eventually performed a U-turn and opted not to pursue a career in law.

‘I did apply – it was to Nottingham University – I applied to go in and try and study, but then I did go away,’ he added.

‘I want to do it to get one of those wigs on!’

Since the trial, Rooney has managed MLS side DC United and had an ill-fated stint at Championship club Birmingham City.
