Rebecca Vardy believes sexism was at play in the coverage of the ‘Wagatha Christie’ case.


Ebiqa Vardy has said she feels there was “a lot of sexism” in the coverage of her “Wagatha Christie” legal battle against Colin Rooney.

In her first TV interview since losing her defamation case, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has opened up about her thoughts on the case and how it has affected her personally.

Last week Vardy, 40, lost a profanity battle against Rooney, 36, over a viral social media post, after a High Court judge found it was “substantially true”.

In his first interview since the verdict, Vardy spoke to Talk TV’s Kate McCann about how he believed the case had been “misrepresented”.

McCann asked if he thought about the media scrutiny surrounding how he and Rooney dressed during the trial, to which Vardy replied: “Absolutely. — the whole thing was so misrepresented.”

Vardy pointed out that she doesn’t think Johnny Depp’s outfit was subjected to the same level of scrutiny during the recent high-profile trial with Amber Heard.

She added: “It seems like women aren’t allowed to defend themselves. Women aren’t allowed to dress well. Yeah, there’s a lot of sexism involved.”

Vardy also reflected on how it has affected him personally since the original post in 2019, admitting that there were points where he felt he could “even be here now”. don’t want”.

She added: “It was like the worst feeling but having those feelings at the same time, feeling like I shouldn’t be feeling like that because for me it was a failure and it wasn’t an option for me. Be that as it may, for the benefit of the children above all else.”

It seems as if the judge read what was written in the media and accepted his own narrative bias.

Reflecting on the possibility that she will go back on medication, she added: “It’s nothing to be ashamed of, if it helps I’ll take it because I think everyone has their own way. Know your strengths and weaknesses and identify them when you need them. Ask for help.”

Controversy erupted in 2019 when Rooney shared a post saying he had undergone a months-long “sting operation” and accused Vardy of spreading “false stories” about his private life to the press. It is leaking.

The wife of former England star Wayne Rooney has publicly claimed that Vardy’s account was the source behind three stories in The Sun newspaper in which he published fake details on his private Instagram stories.

Vardy denied leaking the news to the media and sued Rooney for contempt, with both women attending a week-long trial at the High Court in London in May, which attracted a lot of press attention.

Speaking to Talk TV, Vardy admitted she regretted the controversy it had led to but continued to confirm she still believed she was innocent.

He added that he was “disappointed” with the outcome of the trial, saying: “I didn’t expect it to go this way but I think we had a judge who didn’t understand the case and everything. I did not see.

“It feels like the judge read what was written in the media and accepted his own narrative bias.”

Vardy also revealed that at no point did his legal team warn him not to continue with the case, adding: “Because they know I didn’t and that’s the exact reason I did.” As long as I’ve continued to do this and I’ll say ’til I’m blue in the face, I haven’t done it.

She added that she had “no ill feelings” towards Rooney but felt she would have stepped in if she had seen a fellow footballer’s wife receiving abuse online.

“I would have said ‘whatever I say she did, she doesn’t deserve it and her family doesn’t deserve to be abused the way they are’.

He continued: “Because now if someone is abusing her, if someone is sending her any horrible messages or sending any horrible messages to her family, they just need to stop because anybody Even the surface doesn’t deserve this kind of abuse.”
