When you’re caught up in a bitter legal battle with a former friend, the one person you’d expect to be on your side is your husband. So, understandably, Coleen Rooney was furious when other half Wayne publicly spoke out in support of Jamie Vardy – husband of Coleen’s arch-rival Becky – and also acknowledged the fallout between the two women for the first time. Now, she has apparently read him the riot act.
“Coleen was livid when she read Wayne’s comments – she couldn’t believe he’d be so disloyal as to talk about it in public,” our insider says.
“She knows that Wayne thinks this battle with Becky is ridiculous and that they should end it, but publicly she wants everyone to know that her husband is behind her. So, for him to talk about Jamie, and mention her and Becky’s court case, is humiliating. She felt there was no need for him to bring it up. But Wayne doesn’t see what the big deal is as he was talking about football.”

Even though they first met at school when they were 12, Wayne and Coleen first started dating after they finished school at the age of 16.
At just 17 Wayne joined Everton football club and even though they'd only been dating a year Coleen admitted that they had already discussed getting married.At the time she admitted: "We want to spend the rest of our lives together and there's no stronger commitment than getting married."
The happy couple got engaged in 2003 at a petrol station after Wayne got down on one knee. He asked his childhood sweetheart to spend the rest of their lives together with a £46,500 engagement ring.
Coleen discovered that Wayne slept with a 48-year-old nan in a brothel back in 2002
The WAG then defended her fiancé and admitted when he cheated they hadn't slept together yet. She added, "we weren't having that kind of relationship at that stage."

After denying her pregnancy for weeks the happy couple soon confirmed the exciting news - that they're having their fourth child!
It was shortly after the Rooney's announced they're having their fourth child that Wayne was pictured and arrested for drunk driving.
Things went from bad to worst after it came to light that Wayne was driving Laura Simpson's car. She then spoke out and claimed that they "had a kiss, a hug, some banter, harmless fun".
It was then reported that Coleen along with her sons had fled from the family home after revealing her marriage was over.
After weeks of speculation around the couples marriage, it appeared that all was forgiven and forgotten as it was reported that the pair were planning on renewing their wedding vows.
Coleen then surprised everyone by being totally honest in a Facebook post and admitted that although she's been through a "shit time" she decided to forgive her husband because she wants to "try and continue our marriage and live as a family".
Revealing that he is Team Vardy (Jamie, that is), Wayne was speaking about the England squad for the upcoming Euros. He said he thought Jamie should be included, despite him retiring from international football over two years ago and therefore not being an option.
He wrote, “One man I wish was in Gareth’s squad is Jamie Vardy. I would have tried absolutely everything to lure him out of retirement for these finals. I know some people may be surprised at this, especially with the legal case between my wife and Jamie’s wife, but this is my honest football opinion.”
Look! More news!
In October 2019, Coleen, 35 – who has sons, Kai, 11, Klay, eight, Kit, five, and Cass, three, with childhood sweetheart Wayne – accused “Rebekah Vardy’s account” of leaking stories about her to the press. Becky, 39, strongly denied the accusations and is now suing Coleen for libel. The next hearing is due next month, and Coleen is livid at Wayne for making it seem like he doesn’t support her.
“Things between Wayne and Coleen had been really good, and now he’s done something stupid again,” our insider adds. “He didn’t need to talk about it in public. She just wishes he could support her more on this and feels embarrassed by what he said. But Wayne thought she should never have done this in the first place, and in his opinion, he was talking about football and nothing else. He doesn’t have a problem with Jamie, and he wants everyone to know that.”
