EMILE Heskey’s wife Chantelle today backed Coleen Rooney in her spat with Rebekah Vardy as she reveals she was also the victim of private stories being leaked.
Chantelle, who married the former Liverpool and England striker in 2014, said her friend Coleen was right to publicly accuse Rebekah of leaking information to the Press.

Coleen sparked an extraordinary Twitter spat yesterday after “outing” Vardy as the one responsible for sending stories to the papers.
She had blocked all but Rebekah from her private Instagram account and posted a number of fictitious tales which then made it to the Press.
Coleen decided Rebekah must be the culprit, something the pregnant WAG has strongly denied.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Chantelle shared her own experience of private stories ending up in papers and offered her support to Coleen.
She even suspected her own mum and gran when certain stories were appearing in newspapers.
ALSO A VICTIM
Chantelle said “good for her” when asked about Coleen’s decision to post details of her investigation – something which led to her being dubbed “Wagatha Christie”.
She said: “She’s a lovely girl, has a lovely family and I don’t think she’s just done this overnight, this is something she’s investigated over a long period of time.
“It’s a small circle of friends that you’ve got as it is so to find out it’s someone on your personal social media, someone you’re supposed to trust, it must be hard.
“I think her whole life is played out in public as it is, she’s a private person and I think enough is enough.
“When you find out it’s come from this account, it might not have been her first hand, but I feel like good for you, why not.”
She added: “When I first started dating my husband things that only my friends and family knew, they’d pop up in the newspapers.
When you find out it’s come from this account, it might not have been her first hand, but I feel like good for you, why not
“I was questioning own mum, my grandma. It was not a nice place to be in and I feel for her.”
It has since emerged Rebekah wept down the phone to Coleen after being accused of leaking the stories.
She begged Wayne’s 33-year-old wife to believe she was not to blame. A source said: “She pleaded but was rebuffed.”
Meanwhile, it is understood Vardy has instructed lawyers to carry out a “forensic investigation” on her Instagram account to see who has had access to it.
Coleen’s original post, which has been “liked” more than 275,000 times, read: “This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it.
“For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun 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.
“To try and prove this, I came up with an idea, I blocked everyone from viewing Instagram 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 Sun newspaper.
I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s……… Rebekah Vardy’s account.
“It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been 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.”
Vardy, who is heavily pregnant, immediately wrote her own statement to ask why Coleen didn’t call her before the post, insisting: “What would I gain from selling stories on you?”
She said: “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.”
Each of the stories provided to The Sun was put to Coleen’s representatives before publication, and on each occasion they declined to comment.
A Sun Spokesperson said: “Like all reputable media organisations, we don’t comment on sources.”
