Wayne Rooney was ‘surprised’ to see Wagatha Christie post

VSoleen Rooney concluded giving evidence on Monday.

She called messages between Rebekah Vardy and her former agent “evil” as she accused the pair of “monitoring and stalking” her.

Mrs Rooney said: “The messages that went on between them were just evil and uncalled for”.

Last week, the court heard that Mrs Vardy had referred to someone, allegedly Mrs Rooney, using expletives.

Before she finished giving evidence, Mrs Rooney also said that she has “never craved press attention”.

Responding to Hugh Tomlinson QC’s claim that she enjoyed the attention she received after her so-called “Wagatha Christie” post went viral,

Mrs. Rooney said that she did not.

“I’m not one to draw attention to myself, I never have been,” she said, adding that she has “hated every minute of it”.

The High Court also heard that Mrs Rooney kept her so-called “sting operation” from her footballer husband Wayne, as she didn’t want to put her “troubles and worries” on others.

On Monday afternoon, the Court heard from Mrs Rooney’s PR, Rachel Monk, who said that she had a “professional, friendly relationship” with her client.

Mrs Monk said she has “never asked a journalist to reveal their source”, as she responded to questions regarding a conversation she had with a journalist from The Sun.

The fifth day of the hearing concluded with evidence provided by Coleen Rooney’s brother, Joe McLoughlin.

Mr McLoughlin said that he did not know about his sister’s concerns – about an alleged “leaker” – until she decided to speak about it publicly on social media.

He said that she never mentioned her concerns to him personally, until he asked her about it when he read her public tweets.
