Here is what happened:
David Beckham recently revealed that he dedicated a lot of time to the filming of his new documentary. Coleen Rooney, the wife of former English football star Wayne Rooney, is also set to share her side of the Wagatha Christie case. In 2019, Coleen accused Rebekah Vardy, the wife of Leicester City player Jamie Vardy, of leaking false stories about her to the British tabloid The Sun, resulting in a viral Twitter thread and a legal battle. The Hulu Original documentary series, Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, provides a deep dive into every aspect of the libel case.
The documentary also delves into Coleen’s childhood and the media attention she received after dating Wayne. Coleen shared in an interview that the situation, which attracted international attention and resulted in a years-long legal battle, took a toll on her mental health and marriage. Since the release of her memoir, “My Account,” she is hoping to put the ordeal behind her and move on. The series also covers the struggles she faced in her marriage with Wayne, but she emphasizes that they have worked through those difficult times and have moved forward.
Throughout the documentary, Coleen expresses the impact the trial had on her mental health and family, as well as the strain it caused on her marriage. She also reflects on the lessons learned from the experience and hopes it will make people more aware of their actions on social media. The series portrays the personal feelings and experiences of public figures beyond what is captured in the media. Coleen reveals that the lawsuit marked the last time she had contact with Rebekah, bringing closure to the chapter in her life. The three-part series is currently streaming on Hulu in the U.S. and Disney+ internationally.
