COLEEN Rooney’s pals have slammed claims she put Rebekah Vardy’s unborn baby at risk after exposing her as a “leak”.
The Wag’s friends have rallied around her after Nicola McLean yesterday branded her “unacceptable” for accusing pregnant Rebekah of leaking stories to the press.
She told This Morning: “As a mother, we are aware what happens when you post something. She knew that and chose to put a pregnant woman under this much stress.”
But Coleen’s pals have leapt to the 33-year-old’s defence – and said fellow Wag Nicola’s comments were “below the belt”.
A source told The Mirror: “These claims are disgusting. They are diverting from the real issue here – that private information about Coleen was leaked.”
Rebekah has demanded that she hand over screenshots proving her Instagram profile was the only one used to view Coleen’s personal posts.
But friends of Coleen insisted that she would not be pressured into handing over evidence of the alleged leaks.
In a shock statement, she claimed to her 1.3million followers on Twitter that she had conducted a months-long probe to identify the source of the leak for three stories.
At the end of the lengthy statement, she wrote: “I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them.
“It’s……Rebekah Vardy’s account.”
How the row erupted
THE Wagileaks scandal erupted on Wednesday when Coleen claimed Becky’s Instagram account had been leaking stories to The Sun.
That day we reported how rain had supposedly flooded a basement at the Rooneys’.
It was the third story that Coleen said came from her Instagram page after barring all pals but Becky. After seeing which were published she said she knew the culprit.
Thursday’s Sun revealed Becky rang Coleen to deny it, saying others had access to her Instagram, and that she had had death threats.
Yesterday we told how Becky demanded proof her account was behind leaks.
Each of the stories provided to The Sun by different sources was put to Coleen’s representatives before publication, and on each occasion they declined to comment.
Rebekah has since blasted Coleen for publicly shaming her and told The Sun Coleen’s decision to publicly name her account was “disgusting”.
She raged: “We’ve always got on fine, and I would have no reason to do something like this to her.
“My only issue with her is the way she has gone about doing this to me in public, and causing all of this upset, without speaking to me first in private.

“Why didn’t she pick up the phone? I have been so upset by it — and I’m heavily pregnant too.
“Now I’m getting death threats saying I should die and my unborn child should die.
“That’s why I’m determined to get to the bottom of what has gone on and clear my name.”
