Forget all the football action in the penalty box. For two footballers’ wives, all their drama took place in court. Coleen Rooney — wife of Wayne Rooney — publicly accused Rebekah Vardy — wife of Jamie Vardy — of selling false stories to the press. Talk about social media sleuthing.
The Guardian raved about the court case turned drama, likening it to "a parable for our social media age: we see the function of Instagram in the women’s lives, its interconnections with the press, and our avid consumption of both."
In a week-long hearing, the two women aired all their dirty laundry on the stand, and constant press commentary invited the general public to take sides. Whose side will you be on in court?
