IMMEDIATELY Rooney suffered another major blow during her Wagatha Christie battle with Becky Vardy – after being handed a whopping £200,000 legal bill.
Coleen, wife of Derby County coach Wayne, will now be forced to pay more than £250,000 to her opponents and Caroline after she lost the latest round of their legal argument on Monday.
A source said: “As if losing this latest round of legal action and having to pay nearly £70,000 to cover Caroline’s legal fees weren’t bad enough, Coleen is now stuck with a huge bill. other giant.
“As part of the ruling, she must cover twenty percent of Becky’s legal bill from this hearing, which is at least £200,000.
“It means she will make a quarter of a million pounds.
“The heightened legal costs in this case are outrageous and everyone around Coleen is heartbroken to see it, let alone cash out.”
On Monday, it was ruled that Coleen, 35, would not be able to add Caroline to the lawsuit because of the misuse of her personal information.
Coleen’s application to London’s High Court follows the disclosure of text messages between Becky, 39, and Caroline, where Coleen has been called a “nasty bad guy” and a “c***”.
It was also claimed Becky and Caroline discussed a potential cover-up if it became “undeniably clear” that they were behind the leak to the Press in 2019.
Justice Steyn denied Coleen’s application and said in a scathing rebuke that delaying the trial would not be fair to Becky.
Becky, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, is suing Coleen for defamation after she accused her of leaking stories to the media in her now-famous tweet Wagatha Christie.
Their trial is scheduled to take place in May.
