Rebekah Vardy has denied informing the press of Coleen Rooney's private online posts in a lengthy statement.
The 37 year old took to Instagram to respond to Coleen's claims after the 33 year old revealed she believes Rebekah has been speaking to the press about her uploads.
Posting to her 373,000 followers, Rebekah confirmed she had spoken to Wayne Rooney's wife following the claims, writing: "As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this.
"I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for.
"If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.
"Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn't know and have never followed myself.
"I'm not being funny but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?
"I liked you a lot Coleen & I'm so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I'm heavily pregnant.
"I'm disgusted that I'm even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened," alongside a broken heart emoji.
Coleen had posted to her own 749,000 followers: "For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing [a national newspaper] of my private posts and stories.
"There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge.
"After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion."
Coleen continued to tell her followers how she cleverly came up with a plan to catch the mystery source out.
"To try and prove this, I came up with an idea. I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except ONE account. (Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven't had stories on there for a while.)
"Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into [the newspaper].
"And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flooding in my new house.
"It's been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have ben leaked, however I had to. "Now I know for certain which account / individual it's come from.
"I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It's……….Rebekah Vardy's account."
Coleen's fans were quick to rally around the star, with one writing: "That’s disgusting.
"As someone in the public eye herself you would have thought she’d have wanted to protect your privacy just like she would want hers protected.
"Imagine how she would feel if this was the other way around. I would like to see what excuse she comes up with or if she admits it and apologises to you. Well done for getting to the bottom of it."
