In the days since Rooney's accusations Vardy, who is heavily pregnant, has been the victim of merciless online trolling, receiving death threats against herself, her children and her unborn baby.
What happened between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney?
"I said to her: 'Coleen, what on earth have you done?"
In a previous tweet, Vardy refuted claims made by reality TV star Danielle Lloyd - the wife of footballer Jamie O'Hara - who waded into the row with an appearance on ITV's This Morning.
"She spent months compiling this and knows she isn't wrong about the account which saw the stories", an insider said of Rooney's social media investigation.
"I sent her a message and asked her: "Have I done something, is there a problem here?"
Rooney said she "came up with an idea" - she blocked everyone, apart from an Instagram page belonging to Vardy, from seeing her Instagram stories and over the "past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the newspaper".
When asked if they argued, she says, 'That would be like arguing with a pigeon'.
Vardy also says she isn't convinced the leak has come from her account.
Coleen shared inaccurate Instagram reviews that handiest Rebekah may possibly perchance see to suss out whether or no longer she changed into as soon as the friend leaking her reviews to the clicking. "It was not an easy phone call. I'm not commenting.I'm keeping a dignified silence but I will tell you, IT'S SO F***ING HARD!', following it up with "Coleen dropped the mic" and 'The moral of the story is, as always #dontbuythesun".
"My only issue with her is the way she has gone about doing this to me in public, and causing all of this upset, without speaking to me first in private".
'If I don't talk, then everyone will still think I did it, and the abuse will go on'.
'That someone would poach stories about another person via their Instagram'. "I would never have done anything like this and certainly not to Coleen".
However, with so many people already following the story across social media, it's unlikely the buzz around these two ladies will die down anytime soon.
For anyone who has been living under a rock this week, let me briefly explain the sensational.
