Coleen Rooney has shared an x-ray of her broken foot after Rebekah Vardy suggested that she was “milking” her injury.
The 36-year-old wife of Wayne Rooney wore a moon-boot every day during her recent “Wagatha Christie” High Court libel battle with Mrs Vardy, 40.
After a judge ruled in Mrs Rooney’s favour last week, Vardy was asked by The Sun if she thought he rival was “milking the moon-boot”, to which the publication says she “chortled” as she replied: “Ohhh I couldn’t possibly [comment]…!”
Now, Rooney has taken to social media to post a picture of the nasty break as the mum-of-three revealed her moon-boot was “finally off”.

Rooney caused a sensation when she publicly claimed in 2019 that Mrs Vardy’s account was the source behind three fake stories leaked to press after she had posted them on her private Instagram account.
Vardy vehemently denied the allegations and sued her for libel, while Rooney defended the claim on the basis her post was “substantially true”.
She is still reeling following the verdict and told the same title that she believes she is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The mum-of-five further claimed that she has been taken to hospital twice since Rooney’s initial allegation.
“I was having serious panic attacks,” she said.
“I had kidney stones which were brought on by stress, and I just felt like my life was falling apart. Physically, emotionally and mentally, it was exhausting.
She added: “It was draining. I had to go to hospital a couple of times because they were really worried about my mental wellbeing.
“And, since the court case, I think I’m probably suffering with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
“I feel physically sick when I talk about the trial and what happened, and I have nightmares.
“I haven’t gone to get a diagnosis yet but I do know I probably need some more therapy. It’s been a horrible time.”
