Rebekah Vardy has shared a horrific Instagram message sent to her by a troll wishing death upon her unborn child.
The 37-year-old, who is currently eight months pregnant with her fifth child, has shared a message from an Instagram user, telling her: "F**k u dirty sly c**t I hope that baby dies within you BITCH."
The mother-of-four wrote alongside the screen shot "....well played".
Rooney's statement posted to her social media yesterday read: "For a few years now someone 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 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.).
This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it...... pic.twitter.com/0YqJAoXuK1

“Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories if they made their way into the Sun 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 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.”
Yesterday saw Vardy also publicly deny the claims, alleging she wasn't the only person who has had access to her Instagram account.
She posted: “As I 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 journalist 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."
She added: "I'm not being funny but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”
A representative of Vardy's told Yahoo: “It isn’t true, she is now very upset and stressed so has passed it to her legal team to deal with. Such a shame that Coleen didn’t just call her when she had her number.”
