What did Rebekah Vardy say about the verdict?
The verdict of the Wagatha Christie trial was announced on Friday (29 July), and Rebekah Vardy lost her libel case against fellow WAG Coleen Rooney.
Afterwards, Rebekah issued an emotive statement addressing the ruling.
“I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the judge has reached. It is not the result that I had expected, nor believe was just,” she said.
“I brought this action to vindicate my reputation and am devastated by the judge’s finding,” she continued.
She got it wrong
She added: “The judge accepted that publication of Coleen’s post was not in the ‘public interest’ and she also rejected her claim that I was the ‘Secret Wag’.
“But as for the rest of her judgement, she got it wrong. This is something I cannot accept.”
She then went on to say that she, her family, and her unborn child were subject to “vile abuse” after Coleen’s post.
“As I explained in my evidence I, my family and even my unborn baby, were subjected to disgusting messages and vile abuse following Coleen’s post. These have continued even during the course of the trial.
“Please can the people who have been abusing me and my family now stop. The case is over,” she added.
