Rebekah Vardy has claimed she was the victim of a sick blackmail plot by a troll who allegedly threatened to release "sex videos".

The WAG is suing Coleen Rooney for libel in a bid to clear her name over the Wagatha Christie row and there's a preliminary hearing at London's High Court today.

Wayne Rooney's wife, 34, publicly accused Rebekah's account of leaking stories from her private Instagram page to the press – a claim Rebekah has vehemently denied.

As part of the case, Rebekah released a statement to the court in which she described the vicious trolling she'd suffered after the post.

She presented a number of messages which included one which contained false claims about her husband Jamie – falsely alleging he'd been unfaithful and the poster had "sex videos".

The poster allegedly threatened to post the alleged videos unless Rebekah sent a sum of bitcoins.

The message read: "Hey Becki, For now I will be anonymous but represent Coleen’s Army. Coz it is payback time!

"This is very serious and if this leaks out there, it will be the end of you and Jamie. I have evidence of Jamie’s infidelity.

"Not only that, and what’s worse, I even have the nudes and the sex videos. Yours, of course. Just one thing – send 2.5 bitcoin (BTC) TODAY to this bitcoin wallet address…

"If I do not hear from you by this time tomorrow I will leak online and anonymously forward this evidence to the media. Waiting…"

Rebekah's statement claimed the message had been reported to the police. There is nothing to suggest there was any truth to the poster's claims.

The statement alleged the message was part of a wider stream of abuse from trolls Rebekah suffered after Coleen accused Rebekah's account of being behind stories that were leaked from her private account.

Rebekah vehemently denied the claim and has sued for libel in a bid to clear her name.

In her statement, she claimed: "The constant, continuing widespread nature of the ridicule she endures, particularly online (where it remains online and is searchable)… has caused (and continues to cause) [Rebekah] mental anguish and continuing anxiety."

Rebekah has vehemently denied she was behind the leaks, insisting a number of people had access to her Instagram page.

After Coleen's post in October 2019, Rebekah released a statement to strenuously deny she was behind the leak.

Rebekah wrote: "I wish you had called me if you thought this.

"I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for.

"I'm not being funny but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?…

"I liked you a lot Coleen & I'm so upset that you have chosen to do this."
